About

Teacher Link's unique classroom TEFL course fully prepares you for the classroom and helps you build the confidence needed to be an effective teacher. Our intensive four week curriculum focuses on getting you many hours of hands-on teaching experience in addition to acquiring a working knowledge of the different TEFL approaches.

Our distinguishing feature is that we require applicants to learn a second language in order to fully become aware of the difficulties non-native speakers face when learning a second language!

I greatly enjoyed participating in this course. It was affordable, very informative, and completely reasonable with the work load and assignments. As someone with a full time job and many other responsibilities, it was very refreshing to move at my own pace. I found the videos of other teachers to be one of the most helpful aspects of the course, and the reading material is super. After turning in assignments (lesson plans and observation forms), I usually received feedback from a helpful instructor within 24 hours. I'll be referring back to this course MANY times on my journey as a teacher across seas. Thank you!

I’ve recently completed a 1 year teaching contract in China after completing this course. It has been a good learning experience working with children, and I really enjoyed the opportunity to travel around China, experience the culture, and make more international friends.

The TEFL course itself was a very convenient program to complete from the comfort of my home. The course includes video demo classes and lesson planning assignments which were helpful for preparing me for the classroom.

The course is great, both in terms of theory and practice - everything is balanced. You study only necessary and applicable stuff, which you then can integrate straight into your own lessons, that you prepare for Observed Teaching Practice. Everyone was super supportive and answered every question I had, and tried to help in whatever issue I faced.
I am immensely grateful to all the people who I've met from this program - Ginger, Nik, Olivia, Dug - for constructive feedback, loads of ideas on how to make your lesson better and for amazing time in China in general.
Definetly recommend this program to those who wants to try teaching English.

How can this program be improved?
Maybe a bit of psychological basics to be aware of in different age groups.

Overall the course was pretty good. The people were quick to email me back if I had questions or would send in materials. The course had a natural progression, you could easily track your progress, and the information built on previous information so you could what you learned in the last section to help you understand the next one.

However, sometimes when the material was not a test or video test, the instructions for the lesson were difficult to follow. Also some of the test questions were worded strangely, causing some wrong answers to appear correct. Despite this, the course was easy to work on at my own pace, and the presented the information in an easy to acquire way.

How can this program be improved?
Increase clarity of some instructions and rewrite some test questions.

I received my 120 hour online TEFL certificate through Teaching Nomad’s sister company Teacher Link. The course was quite easy and the quality of instruction/course materials definitely has room for improvement (multiple typos and awkwardly written sentences made me raise my eyebrows in an English instruction course) but at the end of the day I got the certificate I needed to get a great teaching job in China. The recruiting/job search help side of Teaching Nomad is fantastic, they respond to emails quickly and helped me find a great teaching job that I am very happy with in a short amount of time. I would definitely recommend their recruiting services to anyone looking for their first job (or second job!) in China.

How can this program be improved?
Teacher Link online TEFL reading materials would benefit from a careful edit, get rid of typos and awkwardly phrased sentences.
