Student Testimonials:

Images of International TEFL Training Institute, Paris•  "The course takes place in one of the most fantastic areas in Paris. Walking distance to the Latin Quarter, the French University "la Sorbonne", the river Seine, and hundreds of top notch restaurants, cafés, bars and shops.

The course in itself is casual, friendly and interesting. It was amazing that on my 4th day I was already giving a "real" lesson on my own. I found it great, to have so many students to teach to, during the course. For once there was plenty of actual practicing time. It was great to share our teaching experience as we progressed. And after a very busy full day, what better reward than to sit at a "Café", and live your French experience?"

Paris TEFL Course Graduate
•  "One of the most helpful things that you can bring to TESOL is the ability to take on board what you have learned. You will be given a lot of information. If you can put all that knowledge into practice, you will become an excellent teacher.

This is not everything. The trainers are committed to helping their trainee teachers to build their teaching career by giving directions which include help with writing their CV, job interview preparation as well as with actual school leads. I was lucky to be one of their students.


•  "The best thing about this course was its practical approach to teaching. I believe that the focus on meaningful context and the objectives we set for each class distinguishes me now from teachers I met later on who did not have a comparable training. The number of practice teaching hours for each participating trainee also set this course apart from other similar certificate courses. 

The amount of teaching hours had me feel extremely comfortable with EFL students as I walked into the classroom towards the end of the course. The daily feedback of my peers and the trainers helped me advance rapidly towards higher levels of performance during my instructional practices.
