As someone who majored in Foreign Languages and Cultures at my university, I had a lot of worry for future regarding my career choice. However, when I learned about CIEE and the TEFL certification, I had a newfound anticipation for the future to come. Some may disagree, but I enjoyed my experience as a CIEE student more than I enjoyed being a student at my own university. This is because the information provided was thorough, and while it may seem like a lot to remember, all of it was taught with a purpose and objective in mind for us students. Not only did this course provide knowledge about students/teaching methods/etc., it was geared towards our personal growth as a teacher as well.
Not only does this course open my eyes to the world of teaching, it provided a wonderful experience in getting to know other people and forming meaningful relationships as well. The students in my class were very thoughtful and has the same commitment and desire to learn as I did. (Compared to a university where it’s sometimes hard to find hard workers like these.)
The CIEE team was very kind and helpful through our journey of earning our certification, and even if you’re only considering this TEFL course, reach out to the team and they will guide you and answer all of your questions!!
I highly recommend this course for those who have a desire to travel or teach!!
