I felt the Tefl course itself was of very good quality, I am unable to fault it, and the qualification which I gained from this will be of high benefit to my future teaching roles. I also did the 30 hour teaching learners online course, which was very good. Unfortunately, I was not at all satisfied with my internship experience. I feel that the host families I was placed with did not take the tuition at all seriously, which led to me being moved from the first family I was placed with, and onto to a second one. My programme manager was very supportive, and did the very best that they could to try to resolve any issues. Unfortunately, with the second family, I was subjected to very difficult and defiant behaviour from the children, which made it extremely difficult to complete any work that needed to be done. As a direct result of that, I was effectively 'blamed' by the family, and asked to leave, for being an 'insufficient' tutor, which I felt was not completely fair given the circumstances. I don't actually believe this to be the fault of the company themselves, as it is difficult to know what can happen behind closed doors. I really think that if people are signing up to a programme that brings participants into their home to deliver effective teaching, then the families should take it far more seriously, and not waste a participants time. The person who I was meant to teach in the first family decided after I had arrived, once I had travelled thousands of miles from my home country, and paid out the airfare, that they were not having any tuition after all. People really should not bother signing up for a language learning programme if they are not going to take the teaching from the participants seriously. Due to issues such as this, I believe that as well as the participant, families should be vetted more thoroughly, before placing to ensure that a programme is taken seriously.
