REAL English is located in Yogyakarta and Magelang , Central Java, which is the major student city and cultural/ artistic hub of Java.

Most of the teachers here have been in Yogyakarta for several years simply because it is such a great place to live and work. It offers the attractions of a vibrant big city but with one of the lowest living costs in Asia. And without the big city traffic jams, floods and crime, Yogyakarta provides a safe environment for all.

Real English was opened in January 2004 as an all native speaker English school in Yogyakarta. In late 2004 a new branch was opened in Batam Island and we have just opened a second Yogyakarta school. There are also plans for a new branches in Surakarta and Klaten offering opportunities for career development within our academic department.

Real English was created by teachers who had worked at a franchise school and not enjoyed the aim of just making money for the business. We promote a family environment and are always involved within the community around us by supporting local events or handing out scholarships.

Since opening, every effort has been made at REAL to ensure that our students and staff feel motivated and part of a team. We aim to provide quality service, outstanding materials and facilities. We also aim to make English more available to a wider spectrum of students from different socio- economic backgrounds.

We are also the only official Cambridge ESOL testing sub centre and were the first online TOEFL (IBT) testing centre in Yogyakarta. We received permission from Cambridge to carry out the Cambridge exams in the year the school opened and received accreditation to administer the TOEFL exam the following year.

At the moment we have around 300 students with a third being private students preparing for overseas study such as in IELTS or TOEFL prep classes or businesses. We also have contracts to teach international classes in private schools and Universities. The other two thirds of the student body take part in General English classes, Conversation classes, Kids & Teens classes, and Play Group. We also periodically offer short specialty courses such as Presentation Preparation, Academic Writing or Job Skills courses.

Below you can read feedback from an ITTT graduate regarding one section of their online TEFL certification course. Each of our online courses is broken down into concise units that focus on specific areas of English language teaching.


The final part of the course provides pointers on analyzing and solving problems while teaching, teaching first lessons, teaching different levels of English, teaching large numbers, dealing with quick learners and students who might have challenges in grasping content quickly. This last unit is useful in helping teachers not only to get prepared but to also prepare unforeseen problems before they can arise.Unit 1 gave an overall view of what is expected of a teacher and a student. The teacher must be kind, patient, lively and motivated and with good subject knowledge. Student centered lessons are the method of teaching currently with the teacher taking on several roles. Students that are younger tend learn differently than older or more experienced students. Classes should be interesting, varied and useful.
