It was an easy to understand course, I used my bullet journal to make notes and make sure that I fully understood each topic. It was a wide course that covered both grammar and lesson structure. The beginning introduction was good at showing what the whole course would cover. Each topic was split into bite size chunks to help you to understand it and the tests at the end of each topic helped greatly to master the skills needed to excel at the finial test. The written lesson plan assessment was well explained and laid out and it was great to have a choice of two lessons to choose from.
Overall it was a well thought out comprehensive course for myself but I think this was aided by my experience in classrooms already. It may be harder if you have no classroom experience.

I thought it will be very hard for me to study again. This is a bit tough though, learners should read, understand and make notes. Jotting down really helps. The techniques and ways to improve an educator is very important and making sure the lesson plans and props are well prepared. I enjoyed while learning the ways and means of being a teacher, hard job yet very rewarding. The online assistance is very helpful, they answer fast. I'm looking forward to using what I've learned in this TEFL course, Parts of Speech, Language Skills, Preparing for the lessons, and Managing the class with the bonus of Teaching Online.
I've learned a lot in this course, that I can't help myself to share with my friends and to other people who ask how to study TEFL online.

If you did this all over again, what's one thing you would change?
If I would do this again I want to change my essay.

I enjoyed every aspect of the TEFL course. I think it is a wonderful opportunity for young students such as myself who are passionate about traveling and experiencing new cultures while being able to work at the same time. The course itself was fun and diverse and covered all aspects of teaching English to foreign learners both online and in a classroom environment. The test at the end of each module was an excellent way of testing one's progress. The summery of the module before that was very helpful also but the thing I found the most useful was that if I had any inquiries or questions about anything TEFL related, I only needed to click the speech bubble at the corner of the webpage and ask and I would receive an answer within seconds to my question. This really helped me throughout my course. This service is really useful and as a student it is essential to ask questions and receive good answers to gain a complete understanding of what you are learning.

What would you improve about this program?
I would add an additional module for students who want to teach online about finding a job and help them to find an appropriate company that employs teachers like them.

I really enjoyed my time completing the 120 hr Let's TEFL course. It taught me so much and I feel really prepared to teach English abroad now. I definitely recommend! They support you start to finish, and even offer job assistance placement afterwards. The pricing is also a huge bonus- I bought the course on sale for $250.00 CAN. You can't really beat that, especially considering how academically rigorous this course is. If you are looking for an easy TEFL certification, this may not be the course for you. But if you are interested in actually learning how you may be an effective English teacher abroad, then I highly recommend.
In addition, you can watch your progress the entire way through. This was probably the best part of the online set-up!

the way that tutors behave was so friendly and charming. they were always online and ready to help you unless they were sleeping and to tell you the truth everything was crystal clear that you won't need a tutor that much.
the way that they help me to write my lesson plan was supporting and with a great passion they have checked my essay and notify me of my mistakes and that was precious.
the game and activities I've learnt here was awesome and I use some of them in my classes and that was perfect.
it made to practice and search a lot for preparing and writing my lesson plan i mean it made me to do some researches. Although i have known some tips and information that was in the site but there were way too many new information and methods that will come handy in my future classes.

Danielle Kaye Flores

Online ESL Teacher since 2012.

Why did you choose this program?

I chose the 120-hour TEFL Certification Program to have more and better opportunities career-wise. Everyone has dreams and I'm no exception. I want to reach my dreams, achieve my goals. That's why I chose this program: because I know that, by doing so, not only will I have lifetime opportunities, but also lifelong lessons I can share with everyone.

What did your program provider (or university) assist you with, and what did you have to organize on your own?

They guided me when I had questions and doubts. They gave me their full support all throughout this journey - before I enrolled, while doing the program, even after I have received my TEFL Certificate. They weren't rude and were very helpful (even offering assistance when I'm not asking). They gave me additional notes and links to fully comprehend the lessons.

What is one piece of advice you'd give to someone going on your program?

You can never be too prepared or ready for something even if you think you've prepared yourself or even if you prepared long enough. I like to surprise myself. It's a lot more exciting to not fully know what's going to happen and learn it then and there, but that doesn't mean I didn't prepare beforehand. I'm also prepared, but I learned that you're only going to be skeptical about something if you expect too much or prepared yourself for something you were hoping for. So, expect the unexpected and just go with the flow.

What does an average day/week look like as a participant of this program?

I did everything at my own pace and time, so I didn't really encounter that much of a problem. I studied three lessons 4 - 6 hours a day. After those three lessons, I would go back to see how much I've understood then I would answer the quizzes and homework. After I've finished all the lessons and took the final exam, I focused on finishing my final requirements and after I've done that and received my results, all my efforts and hard work paid off. It was all worth it!

Going into your experience abroad, what was your biggest fear, and how did you overcome it? How did your views on the issue change?

I was afraid I wouldn't be able to handle change or meet new friends and not be able to fully enjoy. Of course, those were just fears that one can get over, which I did. Change is hard but inevitable. It was hard coping up at first, but eventually, as I accept change, it became easier. New faces suddenly became new friends and I certainly enjoyed every second of the experience. Just trust on your instinct, pray for guidance and assurance.

If you could do everything all over again, would you change anything?

If I could do it all over again, I wouldn't change anything. I'd do it over and over again. It's a learning experience filled with lessons and blessings. I just hope it'll help more and more people in the future. Besides, who says "no" to opportunities knocking? Certainly not the dream makers nor the dream catchers.

Justin grew up in the UK before taking a gap year in Asia. Or at least that was his plan… he's been living and working overseas for 8 years now, and has never looked back.

After spending several years teaching and developing English language courses for schools in China, Justin joined the Let’s TEFL team.

What is your favorite travel memory?

There’s too many to choose from! I was once teaching in Beijing and over Chinese New Year, the weather was freezing cold and everything had shut down for the holiday season. On a whim, I decided to book a flight to the Philippines and go snorkeling.

24 hours later and I was on a beach with a San Miguel and a snorkel. The water was crystal clear, full of fish and I even got to swim with a sea turtle. There was something that felt so free about being able to just grab your passport and go do it.

The only problem was that when I flew back to China at the end of the long weekend, my class found my snorkel-mask sunburn especially amusing, and decided to feature me in their drawings. The pictures were not flattering, but the trip was great.

How have you changed/grown since working for your current company?

My previous jobs have mostly been in rather heavily structured companies with clearly defined hierarchies. I had some creative freedom, but it was always within very concrete boundaries.

With Let’s TEFL it’s much different. We’re encouraged to work on our own projects, and let our ideas come to life. If anyone has an interesting thought then we’re free to discuss and go for it.

In fact, I just got back from a trip to Guangzhou last week… that’s one of these projects that we discussed over coffee last month, and I’ve been able to go and put it into action. But you’ll have to wait and see what that was!

What is the best story you've heard from a return student?

I was just talking with one of our course graduates this weekend and I couldn’t be happier for him. He landed in China a few days ago to do some traveling before starting his job placement.

Eight years ago I was in his shoes, and it was great to hear his first impressions - the people, the lights, the size of Beijing, the street food, the supercars, the rickshaws, etc. It’s hard to explain, but it’s a complete wave of new sounds and sights that you get to soak up.

There’s so much he’s going to learn in these next few days, weeks, and months. It’s such an exciting time and I know he’s going to love it.

What makes your company unique? When were you especially proud of your team?

Our team brings over 15 years of teaching experience together. We’ve taught all over Asia, we’ve helped to develop classroom content used by schools, and we’ve been involved in the recruitment process for new teachers.

With Let’s TEFL we get to apply all of this experience to our course and job placement service. We’ve actually lived and breathed the teaching life, and have put our knowledge into a package which really gives new teachers exactly what they need.

We didn’t want to follow the trend of offering a range of different course lengths such as 40/60/80 or even 150/200/300 hours as we feel they’ve moved away from the essence of what a TEFL course should be - a complete package which provides new teachers with the skills and know how needed to give fun and educational classes to students of all ages.

I’m really proud to say that our course does this - in one concise package.

What do you believe to be the biggest factor in being a successful company?

Without a doubt, it has to be hiring people who have a deep passion for what they’re doing.

If people are passionate about their job it shines through in so many areas. The company will be able to achieve so much, they'll be able to bring innovation to their industry, and it'll be a lot of fun at the same time.

I'd say that this also works the other way around - as an employee if you’re not passionate about the company you work for, and if you’re only arriving each day to collect a paycheck on the way home, then you need to go find something you can really contribute to. We all deserve more from life than that.
