Neutral review

This company and program is 100% legit with efficient advisors, teachers, workers, etc. I should have done deeper research before signing up for this program because the course I took can be provided by other companies at a reduced cost. The course I took was the 11 week online TEFL course, and it cost a total of $1,099 after discount. Being fully honest, I was quite disappointed with the quality content of the course based on how much I paid. I was required to read textbooks 85% of the time, 5% videos, and the rest being class discussions. One thing about this company that stands out from others is that they help you find a job after completing your course. I am not too sure how helpful they are when it comes to job searching, but I have read both positive and negative reviews on this. If you are considering to sign up for this program, do your research first and know what you are signing up for. My review on International TEFL Academy is neutral.

read before you enroll!

This is a legit TEFL course program, BUT it's one of the most expensive out there.
They are quick to respond to your questions, and they will be there to help you out even once you are finished with your course.
I wouldn't personally recommend using enrolling because there are several courses with the same information that costs less.
Some of the course videos are outdated, but other than that, the course itself is legit.
If you are going to sign up for this course, you don't need to buy the textbook they encourage you to purchase.
Ashely, my TEFL advisor was super quick and informative when we called. There were some misunderstandings and conflicts that arose, but International TEFL Academy was quick to resolve this for me.
Also, I may be wrong, but international TEFL might have some sort of agreement with gooverseas (this rating site).

(I rated 5 for all because I felt neutral about the program)

International TEFL Academy

The International TEFL Academy was very easy to fit into my schedule. I loved how everything was set up each week of doing peer responses, a quiz, and an activity. It is a good mix of lesson planning and learning for the activities. The book used is amazing and easy to understand. The second instructor was good at explaining what was going on each week and graded the homework quickly. I also felt heard through the experience, when I felt like my first instructor was not doing the best, ITA immediately found a new instructor to take over and help make the rest of the class. My favorite thing was that I got an extra 60 days after the 11 weeks to complete the practicum experience.

TEFL Course review

I am a lawyer by profession. I have spent all my life behind a computer trying to solve urgent problems happening all around the world in the shipping industry. I had never worked with children nor as a teacher before. The course gives you a very good insight as to how a language should be taught. This method is far from the methods used when I was at school. At that time we only learned grammar and literature and never in context . The TEFL course shows you how to teach grammar and vocabulary, always in context, making sure the student is in the centre of the class, learning games that students enjoy.

What would you improve about this program?
Giving more guarantees about finding jobs afterwards.

A Challenging but Reward course

The International TEFL/TESOL Course was the best decision for me because it allowed a degree of flexibility that other courses different offer, but, don't let the online nature of this class fool you. The class content was rich and the amount of materials, examples, videos, etc was outstanding. The course instructor I had (Barbara) was excellent in providing constructive feedback, live office hours, and timely with assignment grading. If you're looking for a course that will give you what you need to know to teach English abroad, and more, this is the one.

ITA Final Course Evaluation

International TEFL/TESOL is definitely not one of those certifications they just hand out for a fee. I found the course to be very informative and very challenging. Definitely not an easy A! I feel confident that I am now qualified to teach in just about any environment and that I was properly trained. I would have liked a little more time to complete assignments and take advantage of some of the resources like the live lectures. I may try to go back and rewatch some videos before it's too late.

What would you improve about this program?
I would like more time to access resources such as the live lectures.

TEFL Review

This TEFL course has helped me understand how to become a stronger teacher and has given me the tools/resources to continually improve upon that. I have enjoyed every week of the course and hope to utilize the strong TEFL community moving into the future. After near completion, I am glad to have chosen the International TEFL School over other options as it exceeded my expectations. More than anything this course has allowed me the mindfulness of how to approach the world of teaching and provided a strong base to build on.

I now feel genuinely empowered as I pursue my aspirations to teach ESL to adults. I have travelled to several countries already. I intend to use the information that I have learned to prepare me to be an even more effective teacher. I am excited about what lies in store for the future thanks to the ITEFL course. Take this course -- You won't regret it.

Questions & Answers

The answer is it depends entirely on which country you choose to teach in. I made a lot of money in China but it is not an easy place to live.
