Here's The TEFL Limerick Deal

You fly out to the country of your choice. We train you from 130 – 150 hours over 4 weeks. We will take you on city tours, wild adventures and of course, the odd party will be thrown in and not to mention you are free in the evenings and weekends to head out and about with the other teachers to explore more.

Once you complete the course abroad, you will receive your TEFL certification, and this will unlock all non-English speaking countries for you to stay long term and work.

We will also have job interviews arranged for you in that country for when you have your TEFL certificate. This means no waiting around and no endless job searching by you!

Start teaching in a school, and that’s it. You have become a TEFL teaching abroad.

Do TEFL course Limerick or abroad?

There are many reasons why you should consider doing a TEFL course abroad and not a TEFL course in Limerick.

Firstly, Irish TEFL courses can be expensive for what you get. The same course abroad can be half the price.

We understand the overall cost of doing a TEFL course abroad can be pricey (course, flight, accommodation), but you can often get all these for the same price as a course in Limerick or Ireland!

Another reason is you are training in the country you plan to work in. You have an extra month to settle in, and you will be surrounded by other teachers on the same journey as yourself. You don’t have to land in a foreign country all by yourself and be lonely. Hit the ground running with a good group to hang out with.

The weather. I’m not being funny, but I don’t need to explain the differences in the climate of Limerick and the likes of Bali, Peru, and Costa Rica, now do I? 

Would you pick Bangkok or Bundoran… Cork or China?

Why Choose Us?

We are 100% in-class course, no part-time online course and then 10-hour teaching, we give the real deal, and we source teaching jobs for you in other countries. If you do a TEFL course in Limerick, they may not be able to source the best jobs abroad. Our trainers live in these countries for many years and have sent hundreds of TEFL teachers to all the local schools in the past, so they have great relationships built up.

Our TEFL schools are well known in their respective countries. When teachers graduate with a TEFL certificate from one of our partner schools, they are sought after by local language centres and public and private schools. If you study abroad, you also are available to do an in-person interview with schools. These are massive advantages when job hunting in a competitive field!

When you do a TEFL course in your home country, Limerick, Dublin, Cork or Galway or Dun Laoghaire, for example, you must find a job by yourself and be in a different country by yourself. By doing a group TEFL course abroad, you can meet the other teachers and travel together, train together, find jobs in the same cities, and have someone by your side, which is priceless.
