Yes, I recommend this program

I am pleased with this course as after I finished it my knowledge of teaching has become better. There are many useful examples in all the lessons that I learnt. The price is good and lessons are sometimes not very easy as might expect so it is good to pay attention and not to rush. The way it was made is good because I did not get bored easily and sometimes with studying courses online it can be hard to focus. Most of the time I was able to study a few hours each day and finished before 2 weeks. If you did the lessons fast I am sure you can finish sooner but I like to make sure I understand fully each part. I would tell my friends and other people only all good things about this course and am happy that I completed it.

I had 1 conversation through with staff email and they were kind.

What would you improve about this program?

I completed this course in about 3 weeks time and must say it was very well designed.

There is a lot of valuable information in this course, and you can apply most of what you learn in a teaching role or similar. I particularly liked the section on grammar structure which i found was challenging but helped me improve my grammar skills. The lessons go into details with examples and your understanding is tested with quizzes after each section.

I had issues with a previous online TEFL course (from another company) which tainted my trust in online courses but after my experience with MyTEFL changed my outlook and restored my faith.

If you have not started a course yet and are debating starting one then my only advise is to enroll with this company!

What would you improve about this program?
I wished that I would be able to get some in class experience or a in person demo.

Brilliant introductory course and for its price you can not go wrong. Lots of great information about teaching and how to manager classrooms etc. The course is broken up into manageable sections and after each of these is a small quiz.

I did the course at a very casual pace mostly while commuting to and from work each day as it was easy to access on my tablet or phone. You can complete the course quite fast but I would suggest taking your time as there is tons of valuable information which can really be used in real world settings.

Overall I would say the course had great value and was designed very well. My experience with mytefl was seamless and the staff was helpful when I had any questions.

Thank you to the admin team for being there when I had any questions!

If you did this all over again, what's one thing you would change?
Signing up sooner would have been nice (we all know hindsight is 20/20)

MyTEFL, thank you. Your 120 hour course was perfect. I enjoyed the self paced structure and found myself looking forward to more lessons. I just recently move to Grand Bahama and wanted something to add to my resume, I'm happy this course was available. Super easy to use, follow and thought provoking. The support materials, in the library section, are super useful and cover all areas of teaching EFL, what a great resource. The MyTEFL staff were quick to respond with any and all questions with answers that were useful to move forward with studying, resume building or job searching. I felt completely supported throughout the whole process and would highly recommend to friends, coworkers and family. I have no doubt that this was the right decision for me and I'm excited for my future working with students all over the world. My only question is, where to I want to go from here? The possibilities are endless.

What would you improve about this program?
I would not change anything. I would recommend just the way it is and only wish I had started sooner.

The course was not only well designed and informative, but it was convenient for me to study on my own time and at a good pace. I tutor part time outside of my regular job and only heard of this course because my colleague who also does tutoring advised me she had taken the same course. She had pointed out the fact that it contained a lot which could be applied in the daily role as a tutor.

I didn't even have to complete the full 40 hour course before I saw the value in the lessons. The whole course was written and put together in a way that it was easy to understand but also challenging with the regular quizzes.

The price point didn't break the bank but the material and resources offered are very handy and useful to anyone in a teaching role.

If you did this all over again, what's one thing you would change?
I would perhaps look into enrolling in the 80 hour course

What is your favorite travel memory?

Wow! A tough question. There are a lot. Visiting an Old Believers’ village in Siberia, zip-lining in Thailand, going to Zhanjiajie in China, home of sandstone pillars that inspired the ‘floating peaks’ in “Avatar”, seeing the world’s largest complete dinosaur fossil collection in Ulaanbaatar and exploring coral reefs in the Philippines are some of them.

I’ll probably tell you a story of visiting Yunnan Nationalities museum in Yunnan, China. It covers a huge territory, and you can spend a whole day there. I saw homes, clothes and customs of over 50 minorities in China. This diversity struck me, even taking into account the big size of China.

It gets one to think about the world as an incredibly rich place, with hundreds of different cultures on the planet. We are truly lucky to see that.

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

As an educator with 14 years of teaching experience, years of ESL management and teacher training, I always knew what being a second language learner or a new teacher was like.

However, I was never part of the journey students take after the course is over. This job gave me a chance to learn about another side of the sphere I work in.

It turned out to be very exciting, and as education is one of the fastest developing spheres of life (including the breakthrough of blended learning and international education that we observe nowadays), there’s always a lot to learn.

If you could go on any program that your company offers, which one would you choose and why?

That would most likely be Teaching in China. This would be one of the most rewarding jobs ever. Chinese students are extremely hard-working, and they are motivated, too.

Kids are familiar with interactive approaches to learning from the young age, and hundreds and thousands of adults, who you’d think would be set in their own way and use more traditional study methods, challenge themselves in order to become more successful.

Besides, there are always professional development opportunities, and as teaching is a many-sided career, China an educator’s heaven.

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

I’m going to say, successful companies always develop. They need to be proactive and open to new opportunities, but they always remember why they are there and what their goal is. Not every company can change the world, but every company can become best at what they do.

They value their people, because each of them can contribute to the company’s greatness. You never know what (or who) will become a new inspiration for you, your customer or the company.

Prioritize your external and internal customers, be attentive to details, keep learning and trying out new things and surround yourself with people that share the same passion, and you’ll become successful. Greatness is in simple things.
