Is TEFL hard to pass?

A student failing an ITTT TEFL certification course is extremely rare, as we have a 90% pass rate across our range of courses (one of the highest passing rates of any TEFL school worldwide).

Our mission is to train the greatest English teachers possible and to provide the best pre and post-course counseling to ensure that our students succeed in finding exciting and fulfilling opportunities to teach English abroad.

Is TEFL certification hard?

A high-level TEFL course is equivalent to a university course, so you should plan to devote the time necessary to finish your coursework. You are unlikely to fail your TEFL course if you review all the course content and meet class deadlines. Depending on the TEFL course you take, you have between 6 months and 1 year to complete your course. If you are not sure if online learning is for you, we recommend adding tutor support to your course. With this option, a professional TEFL expert will be by your side throughout the duration of your online course to support and answer any questions you might have about the course content.

How hard is the TEFL exam?

There is no single exam that must be passed to obtain TEFL certification. Instead, you must complete a certified TEFL course with at least 100 hours of coursework, which can include lessons, exercises, tests/quizzes, and summative essays.

Don’t worry – our courses are laid out for people without prior experience of teaching or learning languages. We start from the beginning and work our way up. You are unlikely to fail your TEFL certification course if you devote the necessary time to your coursework, finish assignments on time, and respond positively to tutor criticism.
