Higher Priced but well worth it!

10/10

As someone who has no ESL teaching experience, ITA has done a great job teaching me what I need in order to succeed. I went into this program feeling a bit overwhelmed with the thought of jumping in front of a classroom full of people and teaching ESL. After learning how to manage a classroom, write lesson plans, and different strategies, I am more than prepared. I got my BS and MA degrees online and no instructor has given me the quality or amount of input that my ITA instructor has. She has been very thorough, giving long explanations whenever necessary, and has been extremely patient the entire time. ITA might cost more than some of the other TEFL programs out there, but you get what you pay for.

ITA + TEFL = True Expatriate Lifestyle

10/10

ITA creates more than an opportunity to receive your TEFL certification; they open a doorway to an expatriate world with endless possibilities. Your advisor will assist you with all your questions and offer guidance along the way.

Yes, the course is challenging, but worth every 'I think I want to pull my hair out' moments you may have. I took the TEFL course in the summer of 2014 in Italy and then moved to Germany where I started my own company and teach English strictly through private lessons.

I have traveled to now over 20+ countries and the list keeps growing. I have seen and experienced things throughout this journey most only dream of.... I highly recommend the TEFL course that way you can go explore the world, learn and teach.

Great School

10/10

ITA gives you all of the information you need to be a fully capable TEFL teacher overseas. When I first registered for the course, I was intimidated by the thought of standing in front of a classroom, expected to have lesson plans drawn up, ready to teach a class. Now, I have all the confidence and knowledge in order to be an effective teacher. Registration was very simple and the instructors are more than qualified with higher level degrees and years of TESOL experience. I was willing to pay the higher cost for this school because it delivers a high-quality product and is internationally recognized unlike some of the cheap, generic online programs from other schools. I am very happy I decided to go with ITA.

How can this program be improved?

N/A. No complaints whatsoever.
