Mytefl review

10/10

Overall a really good experience! I learned a lot from the course about teaching English. In addition to that teaching in general including a well needed review of some English terms I knew but had forgotten about. You forget how many terms that native speakers use without thinking about and how many terms one needs to review to effectively teach English. The customer service was also amazing and had very knowledgeable quick responses as well. 10/10 for great value.

How can this program be improved?

Maybe having the ability to move around more within the lessons. It's to linear is my only complaint

Great Experience

9/10

As I am planning to work abroad teaching English in China, I realized it would be beneficial to have a TEFL certificate. After searching online for several 120 hour TEFL programs, I decided to go with myTEFL and am very satisfied.

This program helped refresh my English grammar and also gave me several new teaching methods.

I look forward to using everything I learned in the classroom teaching students in China.

Thank you myTEFL team.

JET taking myTEFL

10/10

Unlike most people who took this course for working abroad, I was already working as an English teach in Japan under the JET programme when i started the course. To me the 120 hours of myTefl was a great help in allowing me to not only improve the way I teach but it also allowed me to think on the problems that I have already experience in my classes. It opened up a lot more options for me in regards to teaching abroad for both adults and children. It has also lead me to think about the numerous teaching opportunity in other countries. The in depth lessons, which covers a wide range of knowledge helped in reinforcing and expanding on the knowledge that i already have as well as helping me in creating better lesson plan for my students.

Quick and easy TEFL certification

9/10

I chose myTEFL to get my TEFL certification mainly because they had the student discount (50% off their courses) but I was not disappointed! The modules are easy to understand, relevant, and taught me the necessary skills to teach English as a foreign language. The tests were reading comprehension based, but you do have to actually pay attention to the readings to score high marks. I like how myTEFL allowed me to do the modules at my own pace and gave me the flexibility to choose when and where I wanted to work on my course. The website and dashboard are hassle-free to use and very simple to navigate which helps a lot. I am particularly happy that many of the materials the modules mentioned are available for download in the library, something that I will for sure utilise when I go teach!

How can this program be improved?

Maybe some inclusion of demonstrative videos on how to teach would be nice.

Best avenue to get TEFL certified

10/10

The best thing about myTELF I guess is the user-friendly format of the lessons. Unlike other online courses, myTELF window is not bombarded with too many information which tend to overwhelm the learners. Rather, it creates an ambiance which help learners relax and just enjoy the learning process. Furthermore, the quizzes in each section motivate the learners to focus on the lessons and retain information. And ofcourse the staff! They're all very friendly and reply immediately to queries. :)

Make the the course more interactive by incorporating graphics and videos.

MyTefl: Superb and Commendable

10/10

Do you want to be an EFL teacher and have an itchy feet to explore the world--BUT, do not know where to start?

Start with MyTefl.net!

An In-Depth Course
MyTefl experience was incredible. I didn't know that the 120-hour course was that comprehensive. I learnt a lot from the basic know-hows of teaching down to the most advanced. Yes, it's comprehensive, yet easy to understand. It makes sure you're a fully equipped EFL teacher at the end of the course.

Easy Access
I also loved how they upgraded their web page with easier access by merely using smartphone or any device with web browser. Wish to view your progress including the specific modules and the exams you still need to take? You can now do so. You also have the option to view your mark anytime, so you can keep track of your performance.
(Funny that at first, I was in a hurry to finish it to get my cert; but, soon as I neared towards the last lesson, I felt I'd miss studying a lot that I didn't want it to end yet.)

Fantastic Staff
What's also commendable about MyTefl is the the staff, especially Ms. Tina (thank you). She had been there for me from the day one until I already have in my hand the hard copy of my cert. Anytime you need help or if you have queries, you can beep them and they will immediately respond. I never felt I was alone studying, 'cause I knew they're just on standby in case I'd be needing guidance of any sort.

MyTefl truly has been a big blessing for me as I start my career in the EFL world.
Now, I can say I am more confident to teach English and explore the world.

Need I say more? I highly recommend MyTefl.net! Xx

Great experience completing my 120 hour TEFL certificate!

10/10

This course made it easy and affordable for me to obtain my 120-hour TEFL certificate in order to teach overseas. The format was easy to use since it was just clicking through slides on their website and then answering a corresponding quiz for each section. I wish they offered some kind of hard copy of the course for download, or even purchase, because I used a lot of my time copying and pasting the material into a document that I could save for future reference. I still have not used their job placement services so I can't speak about their effectiveness but I am looking forward to using MyTEFL and other websites to find a position, hopefully teaching in South Korea. One thing that they get an A+ for is responsiveness - they were always extremely quick to answer my questions! Usually I would ask questions through the web chat that pops up on the website and they would answer right away; if they didn't answer the chat then they would always e-mail me to follow up. I highly recommend MyTEFL for getting your TEFL certificate!

A great place to learn

10/10

I first heard about MyTEFL on the website 2Monkeys Travel Blog. I have been seeking a means to travel and gain more income along the way. The idea of teaching English seemed a natural choice for me and a great way of experiencing travel in a completely new light. I was bit nervous about the course, even though I am a native English speaker, but it is designed in an excellent user-friendly format, it is quick, easy to use, and makes learning fun. You can study at your own pace and test results are instantaneous. It also has outstanding support staff or coaches to help with any questions or concerns you might have.

The MyTEFL course is very thorough, I learned quite a lot, and gained more confidence in teaching English aboard as a result. MyTEFL is filled with insight about employment, visas, and job placement information too. I highly recommend taking the 120-hour course at MyTEFL and obtaining a certificate, for the rewards are invaluable, and the opportunities are limitless as you travel the world learning different cultures and teaching English. MyTEFL has opened a whole new door of exploration and employment for me. Thank you!

Great Course and Value

10/10

MyTEFL was a joy to work through, and I actually learned a ton more than I expected. I enjoyed the online aspect, which allowed me to finish the various modules at my convenience. It is a very curated experience -- you cannot skip ahead to a future module, for instance, and must complete things in the order presented (which is probably a good thing as each new module tends to build on previous modules) -- and the class took me about three weeks. I appreciated the support and the online app's ease-of-use, and I would definitely recommend the class to anybody looking to get an online TEFL cert.

Assistance from staffs

10/10

I liked the course very much but what I liked most is the staffs who were very supportive, flexible and ready to help anytime. I did 40 hours online course and had the greatest online learning experience.
At the beginning I was in a sort of dilemma on how to use the course but the guidance provided by the staffs online never failed to impress me by satisfying all my queries. Even in the midst of the course, when I didn't have any idea about the assessment of my tests, I would simply ask the person online who would give me detailed information required. It helped me to move on with the course with great confidence. Thank you Mytefl !!! You're the best!!!

If personal tutors were more communicative, I would be great.

Assistance from staffs and the course format.

10/10

I really loved the overall course which was written in a precise manner and the questions were precise too. Most of all, the assistance from the staffs online was of great help. They guided me on the use of the course and satisfied all of my curiosities and confusions related to the course.

I also liked the fact that you can still review on what you had learnt even after the course is completed for recharging yourself with the knowledge you had received e.g. you can review on classroom management skills based lessons right before you go for teaching your class. It will help you to know what you have successfully accomplished and what you need to work on. All in all it was a great experience. Blessed to have joined MyTEFL!!!

Personal tutors could become more responsive.

A Non-Native speaker

10/10

One of the problems in finding a job as an English teacher is being a non-native speaker. I am from the Philippines, discouraged in finding a job as an English teacher abroad. I thought I won't be able to achieve my dream but thanks to MyTEFL I'm now soon flying to Vietnam to be an English teacher. MyTEFL helped me a lot, with reliable resources and the staffs really helped me with everything. Thank you MyTEFL for a great impartation of knowledge and support.

None so far. It's really good and helpful.

One of the Most Useful and Great Experiences in My Career!

9/10

I'm very glad that I took this 120 hours TEFL Course from MYTEFL.com. Thanks to one of my friends for advising me to take this course as she was pretty satisfied with taking it before. It was super easy to use the website and I did like it a lot. I didn't only get a certificate which is very valuable for hundreds of schools in many countries, I also learned lots of key points in teaching although I have been teaching for more than six years! Very special thanks to the staff members also. Whenever I needed help or wondered about something, they were there and answered me quickly. I also got a 35 percent discount which was quite a big one. Plus, they offered me so many payment options, so I could choose the most suitable one for me. At the moment, I am a teacher in Thailand but sooner or later, I am planning to move to another country and this valuable certificate is coming with me in order to make me feel safer and stronger when I will be looking for new opportunities.

I cannot see anything to be improved. everything looks so handy to use. :)

MyTefl brings me closer to my dreams.

10/10

I was actually conflicted about wanting to fulfill my dreams to travel the world, and the fear of losing my stable job, when I found 2Monkeys Travel Blog. That's when I realized that there's nothing to fear if you're committed to your dreams. Teaching English will be a great opportunity for me to travel and at the same time inspire other people, especially young children. So I took the first step and enrolled myself in a MyTefl course. At first I thought it's going to be hard for a non-native English speaker like me but their support staff and tutor are very helpful and they answer your questions immediately. It also taught me complex parts of English that I hadn't learned in school or through experience of using the English language. I could study at my convenience, plus I could see how well I was doing on the course. Every section that I finished increased not only my knowledge but also my confidence in using the English language. I now feel that I have the capability to be an English teacher.

So I must say that my experience with MyTefl brings me closer to my dreams. Being a non-native English speaker, having a TEFL certificate, and your determination will get you to your dreams. Teaching English will not only let you travel the world, but it also gives you the chance to touch and be a part of other people's lives - and that is what I want to fulfill. I am forever grateful to be a MyTefl Certified English Teacher.

I learned and enjoyed it.

10/10

At first, I thought the lessons would go boring but as I go from lesson to lesson, I enjoyed it and I really learned a lot. My tutor was very helpful and responded to my queries all the time. Studying the course in MyTEFL made me more excited to travel and teach in other countries. Thank you very much, MyTEFL!! I would really recommend this website to my friends who also want to be TEFL certifide.

10/10

I found MyTefl.net on 2Monkeys Travel Blog. It was a perfect opportunity as I am looking for add-on income. I just started the course but I must say, they have an amazing support! I emailed Coach Andrew with some question and he responded quickly with rationales. Somehow it lifted my spirits as I am confident that even if I am just doing the course online, he is just a few clicks away! Can't recommend MyTefl.net enough!

FYI: I have rated 1 on job assistance as I have not finished the course yet :)

Best Decision Ever

10/10

I started traveling this year, and I realised that teaching English is something that I really would like to do. So I went on to research the best way I can get a TEFL certificate and I found mytefl. I took the 120 hour course and it has been one of the best decisions I have ever made. It made me more confident and capable of sharing my love and knowledge to students who are learning English. Their staff is always ready to help too!

I cant really think of any! Mytefl is that good.

My Review

10/10

As much as I love my home in the beautiful Appalachian Mountains of the United States I have always had what some call 'itchy feet' and a wandering soul. I am always in anticipation of seeing other parts of the world and learning from what they have to offer. It is my belief that the more immersion you have to various environments and cultures in the world, the more you truly understand and appreciate it.

I saved my last semester of schooling to study abroad. If course, my scholarship would only accept certain locations so I simply asked, 'well, where can you send me?'.

So, I spontaneously started a journey to Botswana, Africa where some of the best friendships of my life were formed with amazing people from all over the world. I fell in love with the environment, the people, and entirely unexpectedly I feel in love with one person in particular half way around the world from where I was born.

Just over a year ago today, and after a lot of denial and pretending that we could go our separate ways like responsible adults at the end of my journey, we are still together 12,000 miles apart. We've gone through a lot of researching on what to do next to start our lives together, visa applications, work permits and all sorts of other delightful paperwork that makes you question if you even understand English at all or if the forms are in fact written in gibberish.

I took a lot of time researching TEFL companies looking for the most affordable, legitamized, accredited 120 hour course companies. After a lot of comparing, my boyfriend and I chose myTEFL because it offered a 120 hour online course that was affordable and had a job coordinator to help you after you completed the course.  The company offered me a student discount as a recent graduate and most importatly to us, allowed us to sign up with a 'buddy' program discount which helps you get placed together.  I am usually very wary to say I have recieved 'great customer service' from companies as it seems the whole world loves a good scam now a days but even I have to admit that every single person I have emailed or talked to from myTEFL blows my mind with how helpful, happy, and quick to respond they are. (Knock on wood, I know).

In about 2 months we completed the course and talked with our job coordinator, Tyler. Did we mention he is the man? So informative, chill and patient.  We are currently looking at Thailand and Taiwan and cannot wait to see what adventures the future holds.

Thank-you for opening new doors for us myTEFL.
Happy journeys and wander well!

I honestly would not choose to change much about the program. Videos of TEFL teachers and their students may be a nice addition in between the class modules to exemplify teaching methods. However, it is sometimes difficult to get permission to film students.

Brilliant job placement support

10/10

I chose to get my TEFL qualification with MyTEFL mainly for the job placement. They have a network of partner schools around Asia, and help all their graduates to find suitable teaching placements which include work visas and great pay (about $2,000 per month).

As I came near to completing my 120 hour course, the team helped me to check visa requirements, prepare me for an online interview and secure a job in Taiwan. 2 months later and i'm about to fly out to begin my life abroad! Thanks MyTEFL

This TEFL course has really helped me to not only become a qualified teacher, but to also understand the industry which I've just entered.

It gave me a lot of insight into the different types of schools around the world, employment requirements and how much to charge for my teaching services.

I now feel like I have all I need to find a job, and teach with confidence. Definitely worth the money!

Great preparation for teaching

9/10

MyTEFL gave me a whole new perspective on teaching. I'm a little embarrassed to say now, but I thought teaching abroad was more about playing games and reading Cat in the Hat. Now I understand how much more to it there is, and it feels good that i'm now trained and prepared - though it did get a little dull after a few weeks of studying ha.

How can this program be improved?

I'll just be totally honest here. A 120 hour course is what you need to meet employment/visa conditions in quite a few teaching destinations. It doesn't sound too bad (and yeah it's not really) but it can get boringgg after a few weeks. But yeah... i'm not sure how you could improve that.

A very good online course

9/10

Hey everyone.

I enrolled in this course after seeing numerous reviews online, and thankfully I wasn't disappointed.

It wasn't as easy as I had expected, some of the lessons are pretty tricky to get your head around, but to be honest i'd say that's a good thing. For example, you don't want to be stood in front of a class trying to explain subject-verb agreements without practice beforehand.

For me, the course has been great, and i'd recommend it to anyone looking for an online TEFL certificate which actually helps you teach.

How can this program be improved?

The staff were really helpful and found me some great options for short-term teaching placements in Asia, but it'd be useful if there was a similar section online which you could browse as well.

10/10

Hi!

This course was super handy, and I learnt so much more than I expected. Without it I'm not sure what I'd have done when I actually arrived in the classroom.

The grammar exercises were probably the most useful. There's a lot of terms, phrases and sentence structures which I simply wasn't aware of. I don't even want to imagine what it'd have been like if I had just walked into the classroom without this training. Nightmare.

myTEFL also helped place me in a school in Taiwan, and I'm currently loving it here. The city, mountains, people, food... it's just something else.

I'm also really thankful for the teaching skills and curriculum development modules... they've helped me turn dull lessons into fun activities. It's already making teaching way more interesting for me and the kids in my class.

10/10 for me.

How can this program be improved?

120 hours is a little long... so naturally it gets a bit dull... but that's something I guess all courses have in common. If you want a visa for a lot of countries, you need the 120 hour course. Just have to put your time in now and reap the benefits when you start your life abroad :D

Good course for the money

10/10

I didn't really have the time or money to go for a teaching course with classroom experience, so I went the online route.

As it was so much cheaper than the courses with on-site classroom training, I was concerned it might just be hollow with nothing useful. However, I was completely wrong.

I learned a lot, picked up some great skills, and certainly benefited from its flexibility.

Would recommend it if you're in the same boat as me.

It'd be good if you could add a module of in-class training.

Really can't fault the course at all. Easy to work through each lesson, the software was very user friendly, and the staff went out of their way to make sure I was happy.

Not sure what else to say - if you're looking for a great TEFL course, here it is!

How can this program be improved?

At first I thought an app for my iphone would be sweet, but i'm not sure if that'd be too casual. There's a lot of content to absorb. It's probably for the best to sit down and think about it.

Recommended course!

10/10

My dad bought this course for me as a present. I have to admit that it wasn't what I expected, nor what I wanted at the time.

However, after the first week I was hooked. There's a real sense of achievement with progressing through the course, completing exercises and hitting milestones.

I haven't tried any other courses like this before, so I can't compare it to other companies. All I can say is from my personal experience, this course was simple, easy to understand, and the customer service was always fast and friendly.

Have recommended it to my friends.

Straightforward and simple.

10/10

To my surpise this course was actually quite interesting. There's a lot that goes into teaching English which I hadn't considered. Phonetics, grammar patterns, managing a classroom, designing tests etc.

My-tefl sets out the information in a really clear and simple way. You can tackle each module in your own time, and you always have a good idea of your progress. I personally found it useful to easily know where I was in the course, and what's coming next.

Another great thing about this course was the live tutor support. Whenver I got stuck, or needed that extra hand, I could reach out and chat with someone. Sure, I could have made it without them, but it helps to really understand it. That's what you're paying for, right?

Highly recommended course. They're even helping me to find a work placement for when I graduate university later this year!

Great value and support!

10/10

Greetings from Korea!

I enrolled last year after hearing that you need a 120 hour TEFL course to obtain a visa for teaching here.

As a native speaker, I wasn't sure what benefit I could get from an online course, other than finishing with a certificate. The answer, I can tell you now, is a lot!

I definitely took my language skills for granted before taking this course. You may learn to speak English through 26+ years of life, but you don't appreciate the skills needed to teach it.

MyTEFL helped to break down all the complex parts i'd used without conscious thought, and give me the ability to teach with confidence.

A huge thumbs up from me. Affordable, super friendly, and they even helped me find a good school to teach at! 10/10.

Great Value For an Informative Course!

10/10

I initially signed up for this TEFL certificate after arriving to Taiwan and interviewing for several positions, and finding out that most schools I visited were asking me for a TEFL ceriticate if I had no experience teaching English already. I had heard it was easy to find a job in the East if you come from a native English-speaking country, and so I assumed it would be easy for me without anything. I had no experience, so I figured I should suck it up and just take the most affordable course I could find. I didn't expect to learn anything, I just wanted the piece of paper...

Turns out I was wrong! Not only was I wrong about easily getting a job with no experience, but I was wrong about not learning anything from the TEFL course. After getting through the whole thing in just two months, I was really surprised of how unprepared I would have been if I actually did get a job without having first taken this TEFL course. It ended up teaching me a lot about teaching that I never expected to learn.

Therefore, I totally recommend this course before you think you can try what I did and just jump into a job without at least the knowledge this course gives you.
