Yes, I recommend this program

The subject matter is thorough and well formatted. The regular use of short review quizzes is good for the student to keep on top of each unit of study.
As an inexperienced on-line learner, the course built my self confidence.
The presentation of teaching strategies is solid and sensible. However I suspect someone new to teaching might feel more reassured with some visual examples to illustrate the concepts. In my case this was not necessary as I am an experienced teacher, in fact I have mentored and tutored many first year placements and student teachers. This is their most significant field of self doubt. Usually the content is their strength.
As I said this course gave some very succinct and helpful advice on teaching strategies.

What would you improve about this program?
As detailed above, I believe some visual strategies of classroom teaching would round out this course for those with no teaching experience.
Just saw opportunity for photo upload, and that is not relevant in my case.

The 140-Hour program through myTEFL was extremely thorough and well worth the (rather affordable) cost. Throughout the course, I was highly impressed with how up-to-date course content was as it was easy to see that the course is consistently being improved upon. The only thing I would've enjoyed seeing a bit more of is video content. As someone who learns best by witnessing things firsthand, I would have loved to watch the teaching methods in action. I also wish there was a way I could look back at this course throughout my first months teaching (it expires 180 days after you gain your certification), but the built-in library offers a plethora of resources to download to bring with you into your budding career.

Overall, I loved taking this course and found myself spending hours going through modules before even realizing I'd spent so much time learning. If you are on the fence about going through with a TEFL certification, I highly recommend myTEFL not only for their courses, but also for their aid in job searching as well.

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
Make sure to download all the resources as they won't always be available! Have fun learning :)

After much research, I decided to give myTEFL 120 hour course a try and I'm glad I did! UI is clean and content/quizzes are very engaging and relevant to all levels of experience. I plan to teach English for the first timr in Japan but will start online teaching for now due to Covid-19. I feel like this course gave me confidence to pursue this goal. Customer service is AMAZING. It's also great to be able to refer back to course material after finishing upon request. Highly recommend for anyone wanting to teach English for the first time or veterans as a refresher.

I am so grateful I came across this online course because it took me about one month to complete it. I have to say that I was very motivated to have my certification as an ESL teacher so I can apply to work oversea, so it was very easy to work on it everyday for about one hour.
-The platform is very easy to naviguate through, with an easy-access tutor to help you and answer your questions.
-The pace is yours, so you can go entirely at your own flow (which is another plus).
-The price is very cheap to have an accredited certification.
-The website stays accessible after you completed the program, so you can keep access to all the information (for a certain amount of time).
-myTEFL helps you find jobs in many different countries after completing your class.
-The material is very easy to understand, very well explained and presented, and gives you opportunity to discover helpful website with activities or materials.
-Support team is very accessible and reply quickly when you encounter a problem.

Finally, I highly recommend the program to anyone who is seeking to expand their teaching skills and want to go oversea. It is the best opportunity and I am excited to be part of a new project outside my home country.

What would you improve about this program?
Honestly, nothing. I don't see how it could be any greater.

I completed my 120-hour certification online with myTEFL - luckily I applied quickly enough after graduating that I got 50% off the course, which I definitely appreciated! The small quizzes interspersed throughout the course kept me engaged and made it easier to complete each section in bite-size pieces. Overall, the content was relevant and I ended up coming back to reference it when I was working on my first lesson plan. For anyone who's looking for an online TEFL provider, myTEFL is a great choice!

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.
