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.

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.

I recently completed a three year second BA teaching program from an accredited university. Since I am to teach in the People's Republic of China, because I did not have 1 year actual teaching experience, my prospective employer required me to take this course or something like it even though I've spent the last three years preparing for my first teaching job. This course is not difficult if you know how to write lesson plans and I have written a bunch. Some of the course is I think a little arcane but most of it on track and with some reasonable effort prospective English teachers can be successful.

If your planning on going somewhere to teach English this is the course to take. This course will take you all throughout the English language of grammar, punctuation, pronunciation to showing you how to teach in a classroom. It definitely gives you the tools you need in order to teach English in a foreign country. Even if you never taught a lesson before this course will help you learn the in's and out's of what to do in a classroom or teaching small to big classes. It was good to have assignments to help prepare for when i do actually do it. It sure did make me think of what i need to put into a lesson and how to help the students learn. I would recommend this course to anyone who is going to be a teacher or going to teach people somewhere. It will give good directions, guidance and practice. It was nice to have someone review my assignments so i know if i need to fix it or not.

How can this program be improved?
For the assignments maybe mention how detailed you want them to be.

I loved this class. It was just hard enough to keep me on my toes but not impossible.
Take the final test seriously and take it in a quiet place. That's important.
If you need to take the class faster, it allows you to do that, you can do the work at your own pace. Next, the people that help you with your homework and answer questions- are amazing. They respond really fast and are amazingly helpful. They give you examples and explain everything to you. Words can't describe out considerate the people are in this program.

As a direct result of completing this course I got a job in China! This course not only got me a job, but more importantly made me a better teacher! This course gave me a far better understanding of Chinese classrooms but also made me more aware of theoretical educational concepts! This course has enabled me to follow my dream to move and pursue a career in China! For that alone I can’t review this program any better. However, this process was so pain free for me that I would be remiss to not mention that the support I felt during this program was second to none. I highly recommend it!

How can this program be improved?
I can’t think of anyway that this course could be made better!
