I had been contemplating taking the TEFL certification course for over a year and had ben speaking with ITA TEFL Academy for some time. I registered at a time when I received a great discount in the price of the courses and I was very satisfied. The courseload was a bit difficult because I was a high school teacher with a full load at the same time. But I persevered and am at the end of my Practicum. I was very satisfied and would recommend this course to others.

How can this program be improved?
I would not change anything about this program right now.

I'm so glad I chose this program to begin my journey to teach abroad because an ITA Alumni is the reason I got a job overseas so quickly. Upon completion of my course, which I was able to do online while also taking college classes, I saw a post in the ITA Taiwan Alumni group where someone had a job opening at their school and was able to message this person and get an application in right away. It was a very quick process and I did not have to do much searching on my end for a good job overseas. If any of my friends or family wishes to teach abroad in the future I will 100% reference ITA to them.

There are lots of TEFL course options. I would highly recommend International TEFL Academy. I opted to complete the on-line course. The materials were appropriate and adjusted for on-line learning. I had access to resources during my course completion, while I completed the practicum and life-long job guidance. How great is that!? In addition, there are so many resources about job searching and preferred schools. A great choice and so much value to the course.

Enrolling in the International TEFL Academy was the best investment I’ve made for myself. The course was seamless and everything was properly outlined and explained. The video elaborations were very useful tools in truly comprehending the different topics. I love the ITA because the staff is exceptional as well. There were so many resources provided to promote success. I am overjoyed because I chose ITA and I can’t wait to start teaching overseas.

This was a great place to take my TEFL course. I would recommend it overall but particularly to people that are planning to use the PPP method to teach in a traditional classroom. The instructors are enthusiastic and obviously care about the students. The grammar review was stellar and we thoroughly dove into all areas of PPP. The only thing lacking in my opinion was introducing other methods of teaching. Even just a brief review of their schools of thought and the different approaches would have been a great addition to the course. The practicum was well organized and I thoroughly enjoyed being able to teach in different types of classrooms and interact with different ages to get a feel for what level I may like to teach. Overall I would recommend this course and you can’t go wrong with the location in Chiang Mai!

How can this program be improved?
Include more critical thinking practices during the last two weeks of lesson planning. The formula was a little to cut and paste.
