What our trainees say…

After doing an insane amount of research for a language school to take my TEFL certification, I decided Oxford TEFL was the best option. The deciding factor was the careers and visa support. The school was very attentive during this stressful time, and made the visa application process so easy. Additionally, Corinne has helped me so much with obtaining the legal documents needed to reside in Barcelona. At the end of the course, Corinne sent my CV out to schools throughout the city. By far the best option for those who want to take the course and continue their education in Barcelona. – Justin McCarty
