great for learning strategy and practical approaches

I decided to enrol in the 40 hour MyTEFL course as I plan to tutor younger children in EFL starting early next year. Although I do have previous experience tutoring, I felt it would be good to brush up on my knowledge. I also have found from online research that a certificate can help instil confidence in potential employers.
The course focused on helping me learn effective strategies to deliver information as well as creating tests. Because I won’t be tutoring until a few months from now, I was concerned about losing access to the course material. The staff at MyTEFL provided me permanent access to a review account through which I would have lifelong access to the material! And the TEFL library which has some excellent lesson plans and activities for my students. Now that is what I call a good investment in my career.

If you did this all over again, what's one thing you would change?
I wish that I would have known about the course sooner as it would have definitely helped me in my past tutoring

Legitimate and user friendly course!

The online course is user friendly and easy to use. It took me a good ten days to complete the course by putting in 3 hours some days and on average 2.5 per day. The tests are not too difficult if you thoroughly do the reading and you can always go back to review the reading if you are unsure of an answer during the tests.

The administration is helpful and got back to me the same day I requested my certificate hard copy to be sent. More than 45,000 people have completed their tefl certification course over the last 30 years. You can get job placement in exciting and unique countries like Myanmar. I would highly recommend signing up for their tefl certification course if you are short on time and can’t afford to spend $1,600 or more on one of the in person courses .

I believe they are one of the better companies out there and if you are going to Japan with NOVA then you will be relieved to know that NOVA accepts My Tefl . Good Luck and don’t over think your decisions!

What would you improve about this program?
I would maybe include 20 hours of classroom practice time .

120 Hour TEFL Certification

I recently completed the myTEFL 120 Hour course. I found the course to be excellent in terms of quality and value and I recommend the course to all of those wishing to pursue a career in the EFL industry. The course is well broken down and covers all of the areas that new teachers will need to succeed in a teaching role. I feel that the course is beneficial too to those with teaching experience. For myself, I have experience teaching teens and I found the course to be excellent as it gave me significant insights into effective ways to teach adults. I particularly like the regular tests at the end of each topic to ensure that understanding is there before progressing to the next level. Also the fact that you can work at your pace has been extremely useful to me as I am currently travelling. Thanks myTEFL!

What would you improve about this program?
Permanent access to the resources available on the website.

MyTefl is by far the best online option to get your TEFL Certificate

I studied with MyTefl last year and I must say the experience was delightful. The course contents were insightful and useful. I had previously taken TEFL courses with other schools and they were not as practical and insightful as this one.

The modules were easy to understand and I think that providing students with constant testing really pays off because you can remember the recently learned material quickly and accurately.

Upon completion of the course my income went up by roughly 20%, and I was able to hone in on my syllabus creation

I have gladly recommended the course to other teachers since I finished, I also need to mention that customer care is swift, warm and friendly. This has been one of the best learning experiences ever! Thank you MyTefl!

What would you improve about this program?
I was absolute delighted with the contents. For lack of a better answer I would not change anything.

Good Value at myTEFL.com

I recently completed the myTEFL 120 Hour course and enjoyed it very much. Despite having 24 years of full-time experience teaching adult ESL, I learned a lot and recommend the course to veteran or aspiring teachers. The testing after each section allowed regular review of subject matter, and the price for the course was also only about half what it is some other places. Veteran teachers who've spent most of all their careers teaching beginning levels will be amazed, though not overwhelmed, by the structure and nomenclature of advanced grammar. I do prefer teaching adults at the beginning levels 1 & 2 where we can concentrate on life skills and everyday communication. Nevertheless, I look forwarding to reviewing the past perfect continuous and other less-used tenses and figuring out how I'd teach them using timelines and other examples.

What would you improve about this program?
I'd like to have permanent access to the myTEFL online library.

The right choice

Ive been looking to teach English abroad for a few months now after traveling solo to Morocco. As soon as I heard about teaching overseas, most employers required either teaching experience or a TEFLA. I'm a recent college graduate who studied business and works in finance. So you can imagine, teaching English is not on my resume. I realized the best thing for me to do is get the TEFLA. I'm glad I picked myTEFL because I was unsure of what sites were legit and this one had good reviews. The reviews were right! This is a legit TEFL certification and it has a reasonable price compared to other companies. The staff is super nice and the courses were challenging but not too hard. Also, the format was easy to understand and the grades are always available to view. If your unsure of what online course to take, myTEFL is a great choice.

What was the most nerve-racking moment and how did you overcome it?
Submitting the tests for a score. Or viewing my final scores for each area.

Fantastic Course

I chose the MyTEFL course basically to gain more knowledge in getting started with teaching English as a foreign language. The course was so much more than what I initially expected based on the fact that their was so many resources within the lessons as well as the website library to assist in learning. The tests were quite challenging as well and helpful for me as I thought I already knew this type of subject matter well. As it turned out their was so much new information for me to learn that made me certainly proud of myself when I complete the course.

They truly set you up for the best possible position to be in with your TEFL certificate. Before I had even finished the program they were helping me find jobs all over the world. To this day they are always a reference of mine when applying for teaching positions. I could not be an English teacher abroad without their help.

Everyone here is writing these kind words about MyTEFL because they are the real deal. There is no shilling involved. It is based purely on our positive experiences of the program. If you have any inkling of interest in living and working abroad and earning a teaching English certificate, then jump on this opportunity!

What was the most nerve-racking moment and how did you overcome it?
The most nerve racking moment was finding out how I have done on each test after every unit because studying the required information was an enlightening and informative experience.

Thanks, MyTEFL

I recently embarked on a MyTEFL course with the hopes of securing a job teaching English overseas. The course was cohesive, logical and paced in a way that made sure you learned what you needed to, in order to effectively teach English as a foreign language. From the great guidelines, tips and pointers for actually being in the class (looking at student motivation and outcomes) to extensive resources around how to actually teach reading, writing and speaking, the course also had some rigorous grammar and sentence structure theory thrown in, making me feel well supported, confident and ready to teach English abroad. The great thing was it could all be done at your own pace. I learned a lot! Great value for the amount of teaching instruction you get.

An Excellent Introduction into the ESL Field

I quite enjoyed my time studying the course and going through it. I was always eager to take notes and, on top of that, I found the lessons to be very useful. The program itself is cheaper than most and for what it is it's pretty good.

I would only include the use of videos in the course. Not that it isn't fine without them, but I feel that visual knowledge would've been just as useful here. Aside from that, I'm all for more knowledge of the technical know-how when it comes to using computers to, say, make your teaching schedule. But I understand that can be learned on the job. Even so, this would've streamlined things far more effectively for the taker of the course.

Even so, the course was fast and efficient, depending on your speed. Challenging enough that it gave me a run for my money at times, but otherwise, the academic level is where it needs to be.

I'm hoping that others will use myTEFL.

What would you improve about this program?
As for how this program can be improved, I would add videos to help with the lessons. I think visual images would stick more with the students of the course. Aside from that, I got nothing.

The 120 Hour Professional myTEFL Certification was extremely comprehensive. It offers a wide variety of lessons, materials, and plans towards understanding, comprehension, and knowledge.

What would you improve about this program?
Truly there is nothing that I can honestly think of that would need to be improved in this Program.

Awesome Information

The TEFL Course is a true eye opener. Called for assistance Tina was very professional. Just when you think you know everything about English, the TEFL provides a true insight also don’t waste your money on a TESOL, everyone wants a 120 hour course in which the TEFL does provide. The course is for sure challenging, great response time for call backs when you have issues and very professional. Applied for a position in China despite my teaching experience they still want the TEFL. If you don’t provide a TEFL, then you have to get recommendations, which requires more red tape. I normally don’t like to endorse anything, but this was money well spent. I will tell you when you get to module 6 & 7 & 8, this is where your whole undivided attention is definitely required. The reason is in these two modules is the just of the course.

What would you improve about this program?
Just perfect no issues loved the whole course. Tina rock solid professional

MyTEFL

I am very pleased with the quality and outcome of getting my TEFL certification through myTEFL. Firstly, price was a big factor for me when I was looking at all the different companies that offered TEFL certifications. MyTEFL's prices were very reasonable to begin with, but they offer discounts for students and recent graduates which made it even more worth it! Aside from the price, the course content was very easy to follow and understand. I appreciated the fact that there were mini exams after almost every section throughout the course as it challenged me to use the knowledge I had just used, and in return helped me better understand! All in all, this was a great course and I am very happy with the decision to take my course with this company! I would definitely recommend this course to anyone looking into getting a TEFL certification.

120-Hour myTEFL certificate

The myTEFL course was a great introductory into the world of TEFL. They cover a handful of different topics that relate to the job/move to a new country/culture differences etc. I thoroughly enjoyed how everything was easily laid out, and how the course itself flowed!
The help centre was very quick when it came to inquires regarding the course, and made sure to reach out to you about their other services (job assistance).
I believe my own knowledge paired with the myTEFL will be a fantastic bases to start my teaching abroad journey!

Superb Online TEFL

After many hours of online research, I’ve come to the conclusion that this is the best online TEFL available right now. I’ve recently graduated university, but am not sure that the typical 9-5 office job is for me. I decided to give teaching English abroad a shot first, but didn’t want to spend thousands on a course in the case that teaching wasn’t for me. The myTEFL online course allowed me to get my feet wet quickly, easily and inexpensively. The reputation, price, and quality of this course can’t be matched. Job placement assistance is also included, which is a major perk. I gladly recommend this online course to those who want to get started quickly and cheaply.

120h TEFL course

I just completed the 120h TEFL course and was very satisfied with it! The price/ value is really good! I completed it by studying in the evenings, since I had to work and it was totally manageable.
The course suggests so many good and practical exercises that you can actually use in a classroom scenario. You also perfect your grammar skills through this course.
And in case you have any questions the teams gets back to you asap and is always extremely friendly. I’d definitely recommend this course!
