ONTESOL 250-Hour TESOL Diploma

The ONTESOL 250-Hour Diploma was a comprehensive program that well prepared me to meet the demands of serving as an ELT instructor and in working in the field of TESOL. I enjoyed the content related to pronunciation and teaching methodology. I appreciated the assignments within the course as they mirrored real-world tasks and skill development. The course provided a lot of practical information that I continue to reference in my daily career. If you are looking for a comprehensive course with practical training elements, I would recommend the 250-HOUR TESOL diploma.

Pros
  • Comprehensive Topics
  • Different Types of Methodology
  • Pronunciation Teaching
Cons
  • Visually Non-Stimulating Material

OnTESOL

I did the 250-hour TESOL Diploma, and 20- hour Specialist certificate courses (Teaching Young Learners, Business English, and Teaching IELTS). Margaret was my tutor for the Diploma course. She is highly experienced. She gave detailed explanations to questions, and provided constructive feedback. Talking about the course material, I think anyone can understand it. It was easy and concise.
For the Specialist courses, James was my tutor. He’s experienced and also responded to queries promptly. I think Teaching IELTS remains the best. It covered all aspects of the IELTS Exam preparations, and has wonderful tips that can help any student to succeed.
I must say that it is worth it for anyone aspiring to be a good ESL teacher to go for any of the OnTESOL courses. They are carefully designed to meet different needs with regards to teaching. Above all, you are going to meet wonderful people that would help you succeed. I remembered when I couldn’t meet up with the deadline due to accident that I had, Sebastian and others were there to help. I have already gotten my diploma and certificates but they are still willing to help with job search.
In general, I recommend Ontesol to anyone who wants to be a wonderful ESL teacher.

OnTESOL 250 hour Certification Course

I recently completed my 250 hour TESOL Diploma. I could not be more satisfied! The course was comprehensive and provided in-depth information on creating lesson plans and teaching grammar, vocabulary, speaking, and pronunciation. My tutors were extremely helpful in guiding me in the right direction by providing ample support which allowed me to become more confident in making lesson plans and grow in areas I was challenged. Lastly, TESOL's job placement assistance is another plus, as they provided me with a lot of information and helped me find a job that I am excited to start in September!

What would you improve about this program?
I honestly can not think of anything. All around this course has allowed me to connect my two passions of teaching and travel, while also providing in-depth information and room for growth!

Having a TESOL Certification Opened Up a Lot of Doors

Having a TESOL certification opened up a lot of doors for me. I initially only did it to meet the requirements for my existing teaching job, but it did make finding a job in a language school much easier.

I completed the TESOL program in eight months and, while I did find it somewhat challenging to complete it on time, it was fairly doable. The methodology module was fairly challenging, but I found the grammar and phonology ones alright.

The tutors were helpful and they answered their emails quickly, and additionally provided more explanations when I asked. Assignment-wise, I would say that some of the assignments require you to pay close attention to the instructions and execution, and those assignments were among the most challenging ones. Luckily, it is allowed for students to re-take an assignment if they have failed the first time.

Intense and rewarding

This has been an intense and rewarding journey for me. I say this because TESOL /teaching is a complete departure from my educational background. This course now gives me the potential to launch out professionally in the field of TESOL and even become a member of TESL Canada as this body recognizes the program. It is a lot of handwork and rigor
especially with the volume of assignments. This has made me a product of quality set for the practical experience of all I have learned from Ontesol. The fact that I am now able to create meaningful lesson plans is the spring board I need to enter into the classroom. I must not fail to mention the patience and immense support from my tutors, it was remarkable. I just completed the program and have been immediately contacted by the Recruitment and Graduate Services department.
Thank you Ontesol!

What would you improve about this program?
I would have liked to have substantial online (real time) video tutoring sessions along with a bit of reduction in the volume of reading texts provided with this program.

Very Practical

What I liked the most was how practical the online course was. Every assignment built on the previous topic and prepared me to write full lesson plans that would come in very handy for the Practicum and the job. My first week on the job was made so much easier by this course, and my planning skills really showed up as I became more creative along the way. The tutor guided me along the way, providing clear feedback. Ontesol was really the best choice.

What would you improve about this program?
I really liked the videos with recorded ESL lessons in the video folder. I liked how they put captions throughout the video to show how the lesson plan becomes a real lesson. I wish they had a few more videos like these because they were very useful.

Competitive value, convenience, and quality

I started looking for online TESOL certifications when I realized I didn't have time to take off from my job teaching English in Korea to get a CELTA. After thoroughly researching all the options, I decided to enroll in Ontesol's 250 hour Diploma + Practicum, and I am so glad I did! Having the freedom to complete the program concurrent with my teaching schedule was so convenient and helpful. Even though the program is rigorous, Ontesol's curriculum is well-organized and digestible, and the tutors are extremely helpful. Emails were always answered in a timely matter, and my questions were always thoroughly explained. My husband got his MA in TESOL when I was completing Ontesol's program and I noticed a lot of overlap in the material both programs covered, so when the website says the 250 hour certification goes beyond CELTA level, it is definitely true. I learned so much during my 7 months completing the course that I decided to continue on and obtain the 20 hour Practicum. Ontesol was very helpful in working with me to find a qualified supervisor so I could complete the practicum while teaching my regular classes here in Korea. Not only does my Ontesol TESOL Diploma make me a more qualified teacher for jobs overseas, but because Ontesol is recognized by TESL Canada, I am one step closer to becoming a certified Canadian ESL teacher which will help my employment opportunities when I do decide to return to North America eventually.

I really cannot recommend the Ontesol program enough for its high quality, convenience and great overall value. It is a great investment for any ESL instructor, regardless of location or prior qualifications. Thanks!
