Great lesson

Overall 10

This class was very informative and I enjoyed the format as well. The videos were great lengths and were easy to rewind and review information as needed. The written lesson was also good and the wording made it easy for you to learn at your own pace. The quizzes were tough but they reviewed the materials you learned without any trick questions. I really enjoyed the fact that I could take the class at my convenience.

Great lesson as is.

Excellent course. Everything I learned will greatly increase my chances of being a top-tier teacher. The lessons were put together in a way that made learning easy and fun. They way the videos were laid out and the instructors way of speaking made for a delightful learning experience. Also, it was good to see that the PDF's were downloadable so I can return for easy reference in the future. I'm looking forward to putting my new skills to work. Thank you.

I took Uni-Prep in order to get a TESOL teaching certificate. I wanted to get a certificate that would allow me to teach overseas.This class did exactly that. It is not super high end, in fact, it is very cheap. Which is why I liked it. :P The teachers did generally do a good job explaining things, and were very thorough. I would have liked a larger range of ideas, but I understand that for such a short class, hours-wise, that may not be possible....

Great Course

Overall 9

Hi there My name is Kyle and I have been working and living in Colombia for the last five years. I have been teaching ESL for five years now and I recently decided to get certified. This 120 hour TESOL course gives a lot of great information and is insightful for teachers and those who are interested in teaching ESL courses. This course was easy to access from any computer and I was able to complete the course in my own time. As a full time teacher I can tell anyone who is interested that this outlines all the basic information that teachers will receive once becoming an ESL teacher. I actually wish that I had taken this certification before i ever started teaching ESL. I taught art in the states for two years before moving to Colombia, however the teaching experience I had really helped this course is great for anyone looking to enrich their lives by teaching English in a foreign country.

Good Program for the Cost

Overall 9

I found the Uni Prep language course to be helpful and useful in preparing for work as an English teacher. Overall, the material was applicable and relevant, and very well targeted. I feel more prepared to work as an English teacher overseas. While this program does not provide opportunities to teach, I am supplementing it by giving free online lessons over Skype, which has helped me to feel ready to teach in a classroom or tutoring environment.

I did not like the voice of the narrator on the powerpoint/slideshow videos. It was a little bothersome, because it sounded like the speaker was being auto-tuned the entire time.

Awesome Experience

Overall 10

As teachers we have one job, to prepare students for a ever changing world. Uni prep gives a basic foundation to do just that. English is the language that people all over the world speak, it has become the compass for success in many arenas to come. After this course I am prepared to teach people all over the world how to communicate more effectively in those arenas. My favorite part of the course was the idea of "cross cultural". It is important to bring your culture to a classroom but just as important to understand the culture of the classroom. Thumbs up.

Just a few things

Overall 7

The information presented, quizzes, and the ease of navigation for the website is well put together. I enjoyed the wellspring of information provided so concisely. The quizzes reinforced the material nicely. This is my first experience with an online certification course; so I appreciated the straight forward design of the site.

A couple interesting things that I noticed were some misspellings and missing words in the texts. Also, the quizzes are great for recalling important material; but they leave the reinforcement of said material almost entirely up to the individual. Just a bit of nitpicking mostly, but honesty is definitely important and i was slightly bothered. If you prepare a personal interview prep sheet with the material from the course I imagine that is all the reinforcement needed.

Great course

Overall 7

This course took me a while to finish because of my own issues. Yet it was straightforward, to the point and the reading combined with the videos are super helpful and make the quizzes a breeze! I wish there were a great variety in course work for this, but overall it's pretty easy. I think the only thing missing is more interactive activities besides the quizzes. I'd recommend this course to anyone considering teaching English abroad.

TESOL Certification

Overall 9

I started this a couple months ago and did it while I was finishing my degrees. I liked that it was online and self-paced so I didn't have deadlines to meet. I will say you need to be motivated to do this on your own and actively work on it. The lessons are all structured the same with a video and a reading. The quizzes are usually around ten questions long and I felt prepared to take them after doing the readings. I did have a slight problem and had to email the company. They got back to me quickly and fixed the issue. Overall a good experience and I feel ready to go teach.

How can this program be improved?

I think they could improve be better job assistance. The website they provide for you to create profile on only had 28 job postings when I looked at it and 90% were just from China.

New start

Overall 10

It is a new start for me. I love to share my experiences with others. But I love to be always on move.
So I love to have extra tools to use them in my work. This was what I was looking for in an online course. Good price, self paced, and focused on all types of learners. It was also nice that the video speaker help me in a practical way to develop my teaching abilities. Lessons help me to find techniques and suggestions more insightful because I understood why I should follow their recommendations.
Because I have to work to gain some money, was nice for me to have these lessons to make me better.
Thanks for a great course! Thanks UNI Prep for your support.

Uni-Prep TEFL Course

Overall 10

I decided to take a semester off from school to teach abroad in China and was looking for an online course that would prepare me, since my teaching experience is very limited. The Uni-Prep TEFL course turned out to be a good fit for me, being affordable and something I could complete rather quickly. The content was well developed with readings and multimedia. I'm happy I purchased this course and very excited to be teaching abroad soon!

The right course to get you started

Overall 9

I found the materials covered what's needed to get started in teaching ESL. I feel ready now. Thanks UNI-Prep.

UNI-Prep Institute's online TESOL certificate course was informative, challenging, and fun.

The course covers ten areas related to teaching ESL. Each module will have a short video and reading material. Once you complete your review for a module you need to take a quiz. The quiz will be short, 8-10 questions, that review all the information in the module. Your course grade will be based on your quiz results.

I enjoyed the flexibility of completing this course on-line.

It was good

Overall 10

The course was a lot cheaper than other's I found on the internet. The two hundred and fifty dollars it costed while in Canadian amounted to roughly 330$ if I recall correctly, it was much better than the $1,000+ courses I saw, and wouldn't be able to afford. The course was well organized into Video, Reading, and Quiz. The Videos helped summarize what I read, very good videos. They also put in Section ten which is purely there to help you out when you're working, with ideas for how to teach.
I recommend this course.

I've been an elementary teacher overseas and stateside for many years and have been searching for an online TESOL course. After reading reviews and content information, I'm very glad I chose UNI-Prep. This program is perfect for anyone seeking an affordable TESOL certificate. The flexible pacing, easy access, well organized and structured units were great especially since I work full time. I didn't utilize the tutoring support, or job search options that were provided. I'm excited to have this additional certification and highly recommend UNI-Prep's courses!

Advantageous

Overall 10

The online format of the program is advantageous in that anyone can complete his/her TESOL certification or diploma when he/she has the time. It is easily accessible and user-friendly. The work is not overwhelming and contains quality information. Most importantly, it allows an individual to open new career possibilities quickly and inexpensively.

I'm looking forward to using my certification to teach abroad!

I have been doing my research regarding a TESOL certification program. I was very excited to see UNI-PREP offered everything I was looking for. Not only was UNI-PREP course affordable in price, I could dedicate as much time as I had. This course took me 3 weeks but could be done in 1.5-2 weeks. UNI-prep is ideal for anyone looking to experiment in different career paths. All while making the course affordable and time sparing. I highly recommend this course.

I liked this course as it could be accessed anytime and anywhere at your choosing. As a father with a young daughter and working full time I am pretty busy with little spare time, however this course offers so much flexibility that you just need the internet and an hour a day to hammer away at that in a few weeks of hard work you can complete it. The cost for the certificate is also very affordable.

How can this program be improved?

Some of the questions in the quiz are somewhat vague resulting in using reduction to eliminate two options then making an educated guess on one of the remaining 2 choices available.

More specific content and lesson examples would be nice to see rather than just a quick theorized version of what to do/expect.

Uni-Prep's TESOL course is a great value. The materials are clear, the tests are fair, and the learning is real! The teaching techniques and the knowledge I gained from taking this class benefited me almost instantly, as it gave me much better insight as to what my students were experiencing in my ESL classes. It also served to highlight both the mistakes I was making, as well as what I had been doing correctly. It gave me a fresh perspective on teaching specific aspects of English, and new ideas for lesson plans. Overall, this is a very good course that helped me a great deal, and will no doubt help my students over the long run.

UNI Prep's TESOL Certificate course is great in that it allows you to work at your own pace while still providing a thorough and structured course with new material that builds upon,already covered topics as you move along. Each lesson focuses on the topic at hand both from the perspective of you as the teacher as well as the perspective of the students. I was able to complete the course during my own time and gained valuable insight into what teaching English entails.

UNI-Prep TESOL

Overall 8

I had a good experience taking the TESOL training online with UNI-Prep. I wanted something I could do on my own timeframe, and this class was perfect. There were materials in video format and in a PDF reading, and they were thorough and detailed. (Please note I did not require any assistance from the staff, nor have I looked into job assistance, however I could not mark those categories as there was no N/A option.)

How can this program be improved?

You may want to re-do the videos - the audio was weird sounding and the videos a bit blurred. I have a brand new laptop, so it may be the age of the video compared to newer technologies.

Overall 10

A great opportunity to become eligible to work overseas! The course is very quick and easy way to get a certificate. The information provided is just enough if you intend to get prepared very fast and do not have that much time. I fully recommend this course.Flexible hours, great price, and fair content. For each module there is a video and also an article to read. I made the video speed faster since I would rather listen to lectures at a faster speed. The audio is clear and easy to follow. The tests are multiple choice, and there is no free writing that must be accomplished in this course. I wouldn't say it is a very challenging course, but certainly full of great tips, and an online program that is easy to use. loved the organization and structure of the course. It was very cumulative and as such easy to follow. I enjoyed the ease with which I was guided through each unit and was happy with how the rudiments of teaching English was delineated.
I recommend this programme and institution to my colleagues.
Thank you for a truly wonderful learning experience.

Good online course

Overall 9

I was generally happy with the course. It gave a good overall idea of what to expect, and what will be expected of me when I'm teaching English as a second language.

I would have hoped for more variable excercises. For example, there could have been video clips of teaching situations, and students could try to spot teachers errors.

I would recommend this course for someone who is interested in obtaining a TESOL-certificate online.

I recommend this course for those who want a TEFL certificate at a reasonable price with a smooth learning process.

Overall, this was a decent course. I can't speak to whether it will help me get a job because I haven't applied for any yet, but I'm sure it will lower some barriers. I hope so anyway. I certainly feel better equipped to approach employers than I did before.
Mostly the material was valuable and easy to understand. I thought the videos were thoughtfully presented and made a nice supplement to the course.

Some of the quiz questions were ambiguously worded and could've used editing. Likewise the written material. Most of it was fine information-wise, but the writing could be improved by a good edit.

I have passed all my teaching exams and will soon become a licensed ESOL teacher. Unfortunately, the processing time for my background check and license takes 3 months. In the meantime I need a TESOL certificate to get a job. I chose this course, and was able to complete it extremely quickly and easily. Hopefully, this certificate will help me get a job while I'm waiting for my teacher's license. I highly recommend this course for teachers with prior experience!

Make it more difficult, the final grade should be 70% or higher to pass the course. 50% is too low a standard. Get rid of the videos, they are not professional and look and sound tacky.

I recommend the course for those busy teachers who have had practical teaching experience but wanted to obtain a quick certification program. Good price, self paced and easy to understand! . The course was very insightful, as it examines all the aspects and dimensions of teaching English as a foreign language. It provides one with a theoretical background of teaching English as well as practical ideas and materials, one can implement in the classroom. The course consists of 10 videos & papers divided into 10 units: Intro, Classroom Management, Assessment, Planning Lessons, Speaking, Vocab, Reading, Listening, Writing, Additional tools. After each unit, there is a test that can be retaken once, it has awesome level of difficulty: it's a bit demanding but not extremely hard. The biggest advantage of the course is the fact, that you can watch videos and read papers as many times as you want to. There is no rush. You want to skip unit that you think you know - no problem. Great program!

Overall 10

I took this course to prepare for teaching abroad, hopefully in Italy or Spain. I teach IT courses as an adjunct, so I have quite a bit of experience. But this course was helpful in describing strategies for dealing with different types and ages of students trying to learn a very difficult subject: English. Part of being a good teacher is getting in the right mindset and understanding what is important and not so important to convey and learn. This course did a good job of making me think about those topics.

UNI Prep Institute TESOL Program

Overall 10

I would highly recommend this program to anyone that is considering beginning a career as an ESL teacher. I found all the materials to be very well presented and extremely helpful. The lessons were highly concentrated with what seemed to be the most important information to keep in mind when teaching and preparing lessons, and I left each lesson feeling increasingly prepared to apply what I learned in a live setting. I will definitely keep the lesson files and video instruction around to refine my working understanding of each theme.

Also, the sequencing of the material built upon itself well, and the content was engaging which made the overall experience very enjoyable. I truly had a great time with this course and look forward to considering furthering my education with UNI-Prep
This course exceeded my expectations!

How can this program be improved?

For this 120 hour program, I really don't have much feedback because this was a very well delivered entry-level course in which I did not encounter many shortcomings as far as feeling prepared and challenged. If anything I would say one improvement might be to have some type of teacher-student communication built into the lessons such as discussion posts, etc.

The search was frantic however when I found UNI-Prep on the internet, I read through the program several times. I decided to go ahead and take this course. I was so happy I did because not only does this course supply you with enough materials, most of the quizzes were passed the first time around.

I didn't need any help, I applied myself and I passed all the assessments. The course was worth the time I studied and the price I paid. Thank you UNI-Prep I appreciate what this course did for me.

Some of the concepts I learned it at college because I studied English and teaching methodologies , but been a ESL teacher abroad is different than teaching people from my own culture and mother tongue, so I really appreciated the tips, modules and content .
Most important for me, I was able to study on my own pace .
Great ideas, resources and methodology through the course, I am already using them with my students and I can see their excitement!

How can this program be improved?

I would have liked to have a mentor or someone to skype with, but at the same time, it wasnt that difficult, so i guess is not really need it.

TESOL Certificate Program

Overall 9

Thank you Uni-Prep staff for the wonderful TESOL program! It was incredibly informative and easy to use. Since I am a visual learner, the videos were especially educational and helpful. This is my second year teaching English abroad in China, and though I learned a lot through my first year of teaching to younger students, having a TESOL certificate has helped me find a better job teaching English to college students. I couldn't have done it without the Uni-Prep course!

How can this program be improved?

I think it would be helpful to have the course arranged so people watch the videos first and then do the readings, so it would further enforce the information.

I am writing this review because it was so fun taking this course. I learnt a lot of things that I had forgotten since learning them in school. I believe this will ultimately lead to me getting a job overseas. So if you or anybody you know wants to travel and work abroad, I highly recommend taking this program as it will get you to where you want to be faster. I plan to travel a month from now. Thanks!

I really enjoyed being able to complete this course in my own time. I work full time and I can´t take several weeks away from work at this time to study. This was the perfect option for me in terms of the cost and availabity. I used to work in Spain as an ESL assistant and although I wanted to find work teaching, it was difficult to look for work without being certified. Now, I have much more confidence and I feel prepared to venture abroad once more and look for work on my own terms.

loved that it is self paced

Overall 10

I really enjoyed the course, I loved how thorough the information was through videos and reading. I liked how it gave you two times to take the quiz, it gave me more time to re-study the questions I got incorrect, and more importantly I liked how it is self paced because I needed to get my certificate quick since I am already currently living in Vietnam and want to get a job asap. The price was also great compared to some others I came across, it was a no-brainer to choose UNI-Prep, I definitely recommend them!

How can this program be improved?

Only thing I can think of is when you go over your quiz review and tells you which questions you got incorrect that they can also let you know the correct answer at the end

Very well structured course

Overall 9

The readings were honest and well put together, making studying much easier. The only advice I would give is to have more examples of putting together lessons. The course is done at the student's pace. You can rush through it, but you will not have digested in the information you are learning. My advice would be to take notes on the videos and readings and then take the test. Every time you go to take another test, you should review previous notes to refresh your memory. This process will help you consolidate the information and put in in long-term memory.

I thoroughly enjoyed this academic experience and would take an online course again with them. Thank you Uni-Prep for this certification course.

Overall 10

I have been an English teacher for three years and I found this program to be both very helpful as well as informative. I have already integrated what I 've learned into my classes to great effect. I found the cost to be affordable and I like that you can re-take the tests. I mostly teach speaking and that area provided the greatest benefit to me. However I also learned a lot about keeping my students motivated as well as happy and fostering a productive learning environment.

How can this program be improved?

Some of the questions were a little hard to find the correct answer to as they were not mentioned in the readings.

I leave for Europe in three weeks and needed to get my certification asap so I can start teaching as soon as possible, now I can. The content was easy to obtain and the quizzes were not too difficult if you read the content. The videos weren't necessary to watch, the readings gave you all the information you need.

This was a great program, taking cost and content into consideration. I wanted something I could do at my own pace...it even had a supervised element, which is amazing because most programs at this price point don't allow for this! Take advantage! For all of you looking for the drawbacks of this program, the only thing I can say is communication is slightly delayed. If you write an email to the program, you can expect an email back in about one week or so. But, overall, I was very satisfied with my experience! Highly recommend!

I will definitely be able to apply what I have learned in my current job. I would recommend this certificate especially to anyone who has already been working in the English teaching field.

Overall 10

I loved this course. It was easy and affordable. was able to complete it in a weekend just because I was determined and had a couple days off. The videos were harder to watch than I thought, but i would recommenced watching them ( they really help with the quizzes). Being a new teacher I liked that the course talked about the importance of lesson plans and gave a lot of information in unit 9 about teaching writing. I printed everything out so I can reference the information later. I look forward to using the knowledge I gained while teaching abroad next year! Overall I would give this course a 10 out of 10!

How can this program be improved?

Harder quizzes. showing correct answers to quizzes after 2nd attempt. Thinking about redoing th video so they are better audio quality and easier to listen to.

Uni-prep TESOL Course

Overall 7

Useful and well-structured TESOL course.
It takes not that long to finish the course, if you have enough backgroud knowlege and some teaching experience, would be probably more valuable for someone who wans to refresh ones knowlege and improve teaching skills, might be too difficult if one has just started the job.
The best part ot the course is the correlation between the price and the quality of provided materials, if you need a certificate, but dont want to pay twice more for the same information-its the best opportunity/

Support theoretically needs couple of weeks to solve a problem or just answer the question, that seems to be inconvinient
the same about grading and shipping, two weeks for grading is the way too long.

What I liked most about Uni-Prep is that, they provided me with an opportunity to retake quizzes which gave me the chance to improve my grades. Also, the fact that i can go back to the lectures anytime i wish, as it allows me to save all the lecture files.

UNI-Prep TESOL Program - teaches the basics

Overall 8

I really enjoyed the UNI-Prep TESOL certificate course, it taught the basics on how to teach students in an EFL classroom concisely and efficiently. Although there were few grammatical errors in the readings, (uni-prep should really do a better job proof reading their handouts), overall, they were great and simple to read. The information obtained from this course is extremely useful for teaching abroad.

How can this program be improved?

Fix the grammatical errors in the unit readings. There were a few.

Although I was concerned about the quality of the course, I'm so relieved to find out it was a great program. The voice in the videos could be worked around a bit though. It startled me at first since it was so deep and the audio was a bit fuzzy. Besides this issue it was a great program. I learned so much stuff that I'm sure I'll be able to apply to my teaching.

TESOL for a non-native speaker

Overall 10

I am a non-native experienced ESL teacher. For some time I have been looking for a teaching experience abroad but hit the glass door. Recently, an opportunity has arisen, but TESOL certificate was requested, so I decided to do one online.

I did not have high expectations but now, after completion, I must say I am satisfied with the material and the way it is managed. Despite being experienced, it gave some new insights and encouraged me to proceed further in my career. I sincerely recommend this course to anybody considering a teaching career as well as to those who want to move on to another stage.

Solid course for an outstanding price

Overall 8

The UNI-Prep course is a helpful guide to learning the basic building blocks to becoming a successful TESOL teacher. The majority of things I worried about for my time teaching were at least mentioned throughout the course. The videos and readings are fairly short, but full of good information.

While a course with practice teaching included would be nice, this course is significantly more affordable and provides a lot of good information. If you are willing to read the material and reflect upon it and apply it yourself it will be useful. Those who need the guidance of a live teacher or assistant to stay on track should be a little careful though. Overall a good experience, we will see how it applies during my first teaching job soon.

How can this program be improved?

More comprehensive assessments, written answers, etc. would provide better progress updates. However, for the price the format is fine.

Quick and Thorough

Overall 9

This is a high quality, highly affordable, and quick TESOL course. Whether or not you have background in education, this course lives to its promise of being quick, but still thorough at the same time.

I was actually able to blast through the quizzes within a day. I'm a fast reader and I minored in education. However, I still went through the work and I was happy to have spent the $250 as I was still able to learn more! Each unit took approximately 1 - 2 1/2 hours which included the reading and video elements. Passing the quiz on the first try is really simple so as long as you read, watched the videos, and took notes on both.

Though I finished within a day, I don't fully recommend doing that. However, if you have nothing planned for a day, you surely can finish this course. But even if you have a really busy schedule, you can finish this course within 10 days so as long as you do 1 unit a day (which is basically setting aside 2 hours our of your day to finish).

How can this program be improved?

Making more extensive quizzes with short answer and filling in the blanks, rather than just multiple choice.

Having a final exam at the very end.

Good Basic Info and Supplemental Aids

Overall 7

I'm an experienced teacher and have a Masters, but have never taught ESL. I'm going to Asia and thought a TESOL certificate might help me pay for the trip. The first 1/3 of these lessons are well structured for students with little or no teaching experience in any field. But, beginning with lesson 5 to the end, I learned key words and important strategies specific to teaching non-native English speakers. There are also numerous supplemental teaching aids offered for those of us building a curriculum from scratch.

I have a very limited amount of time and money to devote to any activity not immediately useful so I was originally skeptical of tacking a course to teach English overseas. the good people at uni prep completely reversed that fear. the course was affordable, fast, and flawless. I learned a lot for not a lot of money and have something in my back pocket to teach and let my family experience another culture.

Overall 10

Hey everyone!
I have just completed my TESOL course and I'm so happy and grateful for this opportunity! What I found unique about this course is as follows:
1. Flexible time schedule.
It's crucial when you work at the same time so you cannot really force yourself to follow some fixed schedule. Moreover, I live in a different time zone so the possibility of studying using my own time schedule was brilliant!
2. Clear and unique content.
The information that has been provided by uni-prep is really unique and clearly written, so I was amazed by the interesting methods and techniques.
3. Useful materials.
I was extremely happy of my ability to strictly use the studying methods and gain immediate results. I've noticed that my students are becoming more experienced and challenged.

Thank you so much for the provided lessons! It is a gold!

Travel and me

Overall 10

I first came to Vietnam back in December 2013, I met my brother here so we could go to our friends wedding, he was marrying a really beautiful Vietnamese woman. A few days after the wedding I was offered a job promoting a Hotel and Nightclub in Ho Chi Minh district 9, I accepted the job and went back to the Philippines where I was living at that time. I had a small pool-hall which I sold up, and came back to Vietnam and the Nightclub job. The woman I was helping there was not true in what she promised so I left there. At this time I had met a lovely woman who is now my wife, so we set up a coffee shop (cafe) together and we had lots of fun and good times there. I was offered a teaching job, teaching English to children in the mornings and adults in the evenings which I truly enjoyed doing, how ever i did not have any papers for teaching work, but I was told about the TESOL course. Wow I have now done that course and I am awaiting my Certificate, the course is great you work at your own speed no pressure and the instruction videos and written course is just great and so clear and instructive, I am so please now I have finished and I am just waiting for my Certificate to come and I will start teaching in a local school here. Thank you so much all at TESOL. I have told some of my friend about TESOL and I am sure they will do the course as I did.

The UNI-Prep TESOL Certificate Program does a great job of teaching to all learning styles. By providing both videos (narrated power point slide shows) and reading material, they offer a change of pace while still providing all of the necessary information. Additionally, each unit is full of suggestions and recommendations for lesson planning and other approaches to teaching. While the assessments aren't exactly challenging, they do require a fairly comprehensive understanding of what has been taught. I'm really looking forward to putting my education through UNI-Prep to good use as a TESOL/TEFL teacher.

Good Course, Small (fixable) Errors

Overall 9

It was relatively simple to do online, and can be done quickly (I finished in a little under two days) if you put in the time. You have up to one year to complete the course, however.

After registering and paying, it only takes a few minutes for the confirmation email so you can get started at any time!

There were some minor grammatical and spelling errors on the slideshows, (and the mouse pointer of the instructor should have been moved off the slides on the screen) but other than that, the course was good.

Hello everyone. Just finished my TESOL 2015 course. I liked it very much. The course is well-structured and has a ton of great information. Quizzes are based on the course material but require you to think and understand what you just studied. You have 2 attempts for quizzes but if for the second time your answers are still wrong there is no way to learn the correct ones. This needs to be corrected as the answers are important. Other than this, great course. Highly recommend!

I have been teaching English for several years already but needed to get a TESOL certificate to get a better teaching position. I was able to finish this course in about one month. It was succinct and comprehensive. The instructor clearly has experience and gives many good instructions and tips for teaching English in a foreign country. My English lessons will definitely be more structured and hopefully students will enjoy them more too after going through this course. It has many good references that I will be looking more into when I teach in the future. I had a few minor problems with the website not responding sometimes but it always worked again after a while.

The instructor was professional and has obviously had considerable experience teaching.
Thanks to the course, If I have chance to be English teacher in the future, It will helpful due to get this TESOL of UNI-Prep. and also, I am now more confident as an English Teacher.

I will recommend UNI-Prep to friends and family.

Thanks to UNI-Prep.

INTERESTING

Overall 10

This course comes with a small price tag compared to other certifications and provides a lot of very useful information, especially for people without prior teaching experience. I enjoyed the videos and readings, and I feel that I gained valuable knowledge about teaching methods and lesson plan strategies. I did not receive any job placement assistance through UNI-Prep. The website is nothing fancy and has some bugs but refreshing the page typically does the trick. Overall I am happy with my decision to get certified through UNI-Prep.

Great online course

Overall 10

This 120-hour online TESOL course was informative, easy to follow, and able to be completed as quickly or as slowly as my schedule allowed. Written materials were detailed and provided valuable information regarding teaching techniques and classroom management. Audiovisual aids supplemented the written material nicely. I feel prepared to teach English having completed this course. I would highly recommend it, especially to busy professionals who hope to teach in their futures.

Interesting and useful, I would reccomend it to anyone who wants to take a TESOL Certificate online at their ownt time, from the comfort of their homes, not at a very high price. I think the service they provide is excellent, the material they use is interesting and useful, easy to download and it can be stored in your computer and checked any time you need it.

I just finished the TESOl certificate course and feel very confident that I now have a strong foundation teaching English as a Second Language. They also give you several resources to supplement your learning. Well worth the money.I like how they practice what they preach and address the different learning styles in their program with videos, visuals, and written material. Everything was up to date and easy to understand.

I have just finished TESOL course on Uni-Prep few minutes ago and am really excited to write this review. I have been a teacher of English for 2 years but still wanted to take this course. Yes, I am paid off with what I learn from it. It is very comprehensive and there are many things from each unit that I didn't think of before. Thanks to the course, I am now more confident as an English Teacher and surely will be more effective. Highly recommended!

I enjoyed the videos. The teacher of the videos gave some of his experiences. The TESOL course was reasonable and I liked that I could go at my own pace. I have a busy life and I liked that it was not rushed. I liked that I could stop the videos and take notes. The pdf notes were helpful. I could underline and highlight the pdf notes.
I was able to email about questions and received responses to my emails. Overall it is an enjoyable and informative course.

How can this program be improved?

Have the answers to the questions be exactly what was written in the pdf notes and videos. Some of the answers were not exactly what was in the pdf notes or videos. Give more activity ideas.

Great Course with No Pressure for Timing

Overall 10

The course's format made it easy for someone with multiple jobs to study and complete in their own time. Being able to read and watch content online when it suited my schedule took a lot of pressure off of the learning experience. In the past, having to deal with strict deadlines for online courses, has ruined the experience for me. Between the detailed content and the freedom to study when you can, Uni Prep is the ideal course for those looking to upgrade their qualifications.

Also it is a worldwide course so I am excited to travel to other countries and look for jobs as well.

It was a great course in which I have had a refreshment about teaching English . Even though I am an experienced teacher , this course was beneficial for me . I liked the fact that it can be completed on your own pace . I have also liked the way quizzes were structured and that the PDF documents could be kept to be looked at anytime you wish . I had a problem with the audio in the videos but the information was great and useful so we may close an eye on that . I have already recommended this course to some of my colleagues who are great English teachers but don't have the necessary training and certifications . All the best .

The best words that describes UNI-Prep TESOL: it has a user friendly web page, it is simple to cover, you can access it anytime, and you can fit it in your schedule. I enjoyed and finished it in a very short time. The materials are organized well. When i finish it, i fell myself confident to teach English to non-native students. It gained me a lot.

This program is awesome! The modules are videos and PDFs, which are keepers! I'm sure I will review these lessons for years to come. I found the course extremely informational and well written. I found the course packed with tremendous academic, personal and professional experience. There are 10 modules which are decribed on their website. I would definitely recommend this course to anyone thinking of teaching speakers of other languages, either home or abroad. A couple tips, the time to understand the material, understanding the material will make the module quizzes much easier. The questions in the quizzes are not formatted based on the reading material, they are based on your understand of the material. Otherwise good luck!

The course was more that I had hoped...

Overall 9

I finished my TESOL from an accredited school without having to take out a loan. The teaching was excellent, and I'm a lifetime member of their website where I can access additional tools and materials.

I finished the course at my own pace, and the material is available twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. Each lesson includes an instructional video and reading. The reading should be completed prior to viewing the video. I like that there are also two chances to score well on the tests.

There may be no better option in all of Canada than UNI-Prep.

I am incredibly satisfied with this course and can't but recommend it to anyone who's interested.

The Uni-Prep TESOL on-line course was exactly the kind of affordable, flexible course I needed to fit into my somewhat unpredictable schedule. I am a seasoned intercultural professional, and have run my own business for 15 years providing cross-cultural training and consulting services to corporate and academic professionals. I speak quite good Mandarin Chinese but wanted to add a credential to increase the likelihood of finding a suitable job teaching in China. I am delighted to add this credential to my resume and I look forward to applying the competences I learned through this affordable, convenient course.

My experience with Uni-Prep Institute was amazing. I enrolled in the program TESOL Certificate. I enjoyed how all the material was simple to follow with a lot of learning information. The staff were very helpful with whatever questions I had. I would recommend this program to anyone who would like to work with students of all ages teaching English. As a student, I have learned many things such as how to become effective when teaching English to beginners all the way to advanced students. As long as you read the material for each unit and you watch the video you will do good and take notes you will do good.

There is nothing I would change in this program. Everything was very clear and the materials are very easy to navigate thorough.

I took the certificate course with UNI-Prep. It was a useful introduction of the basic teaching theories and concepts necessary to begin teaching ESL to students. The staff was very quick to respond to questions and the online course made it extremely useful for those currently living in foreign countries or who have very busy schedules.

I currently teach English overseas and have many hours of practical experience teaching ESL. However, this course helped provide the fundamental knowledge and teaching theory necessary to take ones teaching skills to the next level.

I enjoyed doing this course very much indeed. It has certainly helped clarify certain points in the teaching process. The voice on the videos may become annoying, however I found it to be relaxing and engaging. It is worth taking, either if you are just starting out or using it as a refresher course. The exams at the end of each unit are not too hard and can be done pretty quickly. If you are on a budget or constrained by time then this is certainly the course for you! Good luck to anyone wanting to become a TESOL teacher in the future!

Overall good if you need the certificate to go abroad and already have teaching experience

Overall 8

I've been working with kids and young adults in academic settings for years and had taken pedagogy and linguistics courses in school, so this course was incredibly easy for me. I actually was able to complete it over one weekend, but I recommend giving yourself a week or two if you don't already have the linguistics and pedagogy background.

My bottom line recommendation includes the caveat that you will get the certificate, but should probably review the materials on your own after and do outside reading too, especially if you don't have a pedagogy background.

I love that this course is set at your own pace. I finished within two weeks. It's a stress-free and informative certification course! The ONLY downside I experienced was the course videos are autotuned so it takes a unit or two to get used to the guys voice. Other than that, this course was exactly what I needed to take the next step in my TEFL career. I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking to teach english abroad.

I am very glad that I decided to earn my TESOL Certificate via the UNI-Prep Institute. Having international, online access to course materials allowed me to complete course requirements rapidly, at my own pace, in the comfort of my apartment in Chile. Not having to wait for international shipping of materials or awkward in-class lecture times only offered at certain times of the year was a huge plus for my timeline.

I would highly recommend this program to anyone wanting to teach English in conjunction with one of the United Nations' English Opens Doors Programs for public school children.

How can this program be improved?

Adding printable in-class resources like picture flash cards for beginners/intermediate/advanced vocabulary would be a plus (that focused on groups of the first 3000 English words).

Adding printable lesson plans for particular subjects organized by beginner/intermediate/advanced would be great.

Great course. The videos and supporting articles were extremely valuable and interesting. Exams were fair and relevant and I was able to fit the program around my travel intinerary. I now feel highly prepared to enter the ESL world. One improvement I can think of though, is that the course offered assesment of teaching style on skype, and offers you the opportunity to practice (and even be assessed on your lesson plans).

How can this program be improved?

Teaching practice and assesment over skype would be great. I have theoretical understanding of teaching english, and the factors behind an ESL classroom but some skype assesment of my teaching style and lesson plans would improve my confidence prior to job application.

My TESOL Certification

Overall 9

I recently finished my TESOL certification course. There was so much information, but it was very easy to take in and very well-organized. There were many great tips and useful knowledge for becoming a great teacher. I really enjoyed knowing that at the end of this course I would have so much to offer as an English teacher abroad, or where ever I choose to go.
I think the thing that I appreciated the most that they had reading as well as visual material to learn from. Being that I am a visual learner, I benefited from that so much. Another thing that I thoroughly enjoyed was that the fact that you could go at your own pace. This enabled me to not feel so rushed and/or pressured during this course. It was definitely an extra good point for Uni-Prep.
Lastly, it is really affordable and it provides additional teaching tools and strategies that will benefit you in the long run. I would recommend this course to anyone!

I'm glad I decided to take the UNI-Prep certification course. I did not interact with the staff (as of yet) or receive job placement assistance, but I enjoyed the videos and readings. I felt like I learned some practical ways to improve my teaching and got great ideas for helping students learn. The price was the best I could find for a 120 hour program. One thing to note is that the description of the program says there is an optional 20 hour practicum element included, but I saw no information or option for that in the course at all. Also prospective students should note that they say it takes a minimum of 2 weeks to receive the certificate after completion of the course.

How can this program be improved?

The website was a little buggy, and I wish it didn't take 2 weeks to be able to download my certificate after completing the course.

Solid Introduction to TEFL

This was a well-structured and well-presented course that I did not find overly exerting but which left me with genuinely valuable knowledge to utilize in a role as an English teacher.

The course consisted of reading and video content both of which complimented each other. There were also regular assessments which I appreciated for its role in challenging my knowledge on an interim basis.

A Nice Introduction to Teaching

Overall 8

I felt that the material was easy to grasp, focused on the fundamentals and introducing new terms and English teaching 'jargon' pretty well. Having taught a little already I can say that the material is accurate. It would have been a lot easier at the start of my teaching career to know then what I know now. I feel that I can be in a school or classroom enviroment and not feel out of my depth in terms of knowledge level with the other teachers. Many people are looking for a minimum of a certificate for teaching here in Hanoi, I think this certificate is enough for about 40% of centers here. Perfect if you want to test the waters of a teaching career with having to layout $1600 for a CELTA.

TESOL Certificate 2015

Overall 9

I have just completed the TESOL certificate course. It was by far the most economic decision I made in obtaining an accredited certificate. The course provided a lot of useful information and real world examples. I have actually printed the lessons to keep with me for future reference. I would have however, preferred much more visual aids instead of just audio and text. It would also be great to be able to reach someone by phone and/or receive more timely response by e-mail.

How can this program be improved?

During business hours someone should be available to pick up the answer phone calls. E-mail response should be 24 hours or less, more often less. It is important to know that a live person can be there to help.

Very interesting and innovative course. I learned a lot about teaching students of different ages. It included many helpful ideas to use in my teaching and to make learning enjoyable to students. I definitely recommend this course to others

How can this program be improved?

The only thing I can think of would be a quicker turn around time for questions sent to the Training department. Everything else was very good.

TESOL with uni-prep

Overall 10

I chose the course as it was quite affordable and because of the transparency of the website. it definitely states its a TESOL course and its accredited. This was important to me as some other companies are not clear on whether the course is TEFL OR TESOL nor do some companies state whether they are accredited so watch out! Overall I found the course materials very clear and coherent and thoroughly enjoyed it. I would recommend the course to all those who want to teach abroad.

TESOL DIPLOMA UNI PREP

Overall 8

Great information and tips are provided in this course. The tutor supposrt is great too since most of the time I would get replied back within hours of asking a question, It´s not too difficult but it does require some studying and analyzing the text, some questions were quite difficult for me to even understand and some were very simple. Glad to have taken the TESOL Diploma.

How can this program be improved?

I would have enjoyed having different teachers making the videos, this way i would have felt like I got more perspectives, also, some of the reading files and videos sometimes seemed to be contradicting eachother , but that may just be that I misunderstood. It´s really a great course.

This course gave me additional concepts and techniques to enhance the atmosphere of the EFL classroom. Some of what I was taught through the course I had learned from many years of teaching. I was happy to have the chance to obtain my TESOL certificate with this course. The materials used are great in their range and presentation. The course will definitely help those who are unclear about how to get a handle on making teaching EFL and better experience for their students. I would recommend those who don't have the time or who can't find a nearby facility to attend a TESOL course to sign up for UNI-PREP's online course.

It would be good for those who haven't yet started teaching to be able to do an online teaching practice for some real-life experience handling an ESL class.

GREAT Course

Overall 8

The course is very well organized and easy to follow. All the information is clear and logical. Videos are a good complement for the readings because we can understand differently how to teach the different sections (speaking, reading, writing, listening). Quiz could of be little bit harder because pretty much everybody can succeed the course. Anyway it is a great tool for beginner teachers. Thanks a lot

How can this program be improved?

The tutor part of it might be developped, the fact that we have to write an email and wait 1-2 weeks for a reply is little bit. Maybe there could be an online tutor who helps students with their questions.

i wouldn't want to change anything on the course because i believe that all that's on it was very effective. I would like to suggest though that a video clip of how teaching in an online manner is done, should be included in the videos to watch, because it will help online tutors like me to at least get a glimpse on how teaching in that specific manner is done.

Affordable and achievable

Overall 10

As a secondary school teacher and a person who struggles to complete online courses I was a little hesitant about taking an online TESOL course. I felt it wasn't necessary and if I didn't complete it, a waste of money. I'm glad to say that it was definitely worth the time and money I spent. I was reminded of many teaching methods and linguistic theories but the reading was still informative and challenging. I feel better prepared as a teacher to teach overseas.

How can this program be improved?

If I had to improve something about the course it would be the videos. They were too slow and the voice was difficult to listen to. I am not referring to the accent but to the sound quality of the voice.
The quiz questions could also be less confusing. Often there were questions where one or more answer could be right.

Overall 9

Enjoyed the course and it was very helpful for my continuing education in teaching English. I feel I learned alot and this will help me in my future career. Thank you very much! I will recommend this course to all my friends and husband. I am looking forward to going to Ecuador in 2016 and using what I have learned thru this program to help me secure a position as an English teacher abroad. Nadezda Smith

Tips!

I found my course very useful, it explains everything in detail, even things we give for granted. All the units clearly explained the topic without being boring at all. In addition, there are a lot of teaching tips!

120 Hour TESOL Course

Overall 10

UNI-Prep's TESOL course was straight-forward and convenient. I was able to access materials and complete coursework 24/7. The course includes video lectures that go along with readings. The video lectures included extremely valuable teaching advice, examples, and experiences that you wouldn't catch if you only went through the readings. I would definitely recommend this course!

How can this program be improved?

The voice in the videos sounded digitally altered, which was strange to me at first. But you get used to it. It's really not a big deal.

Great course

Overall 9

I just ended the Tesol certificate and really enjoy it. It really helps me to be more professional in my classroom and gave me great ideas. I am so happy that I will continue and get the TESOL Diploma.

How can this program be improved?

I will give a writing assignment above the quiz of something to develop in the classroom. It could be like prepare a writing lesson, or a reading one to help us to get really into it. And for those as I who are already teaching, that will be a great challenge to apply it for the next week lesson for example.

TESOL

Overall 10

This is a great course for anyone willing to teach English abroad. As a teacher you teach content and English. The course is divided into writing, speaking, listening, and reading. This information is really helpful. I will definitely use this material for future use and teaching positions abroad.

How can this program be improved?

The video sound can be more clear.

The UNI-Prep TESOL program was comprehensive and convenient. While absorbing the material I recognized so many techniques and methods that others have used when I was learning foreign languages. It was cool to see that. The academic assessments could be a little tougher, but overall a good course.

How can this program be improved?

Tougher assessments.

This course was really good and not complicated in any way. I have been teaching English for more than 7 years and most of the things in the course I already knew, but some others I just got them through out the course.

How can this program be improved?

Its fine! It will be better if you had virtual tutors to follow up on stundents.

I just completed my online course for the TESOL diplomain UNI-Prep. I have enjoyed and benefited from the courses which have sharpened my teaching skills. I feel more adequately prepared to teach and plan lessons and activities for career. I really appreciated the quick responses to my questions in emails I sent. I think this is the best course to study for the TESOL diploma. This is a wonderful course to study, if you wish to study online.
Thank you

A great course

Overall 9

The Uni-Prep course is a good course to help people into teaching English. It covers all the problems I had previously as an ESL teacher without a certificate (or appropriate training), and I found it to be a great course.

I would like to recommend the course to others

How can this program be improved?

I would advise perhaps a bit more on badly behaved students, which are common in Europe and North America (though rare in Asia)!

A must have

Overall 9

This is truly a beneficial course for anyone wanting to teach English abroad. As a teacher you teach content and English, however, this course broke the language component of English down into digestible chunks to properly teach English. They broke it down into writing, speaking, listening, and reading. All of this information would have helped before I started teaching abroad. I will definitely use this material for future use and teaching positions abroad.

How can this program be improved?

I would like future enrolled students to have a greater visual experience with the videos. The videos were mostly a man speaking as the voice over to a PowerPoint presentation. It was not very appealing at all. I am a visual learner but the video did nothing for me. I ended up skipping the videos after the third unit and resorted to reading the content to complete the course.

TESOL 120 Certificate @UNI-Prep is a good course

Overall 7

I completed the TESOL Certificate from UNI-Prep. It was a good experience. The content was well organized but the structure of the quizzes need improvement. e.g. I would have loved clarity/ feedback on answers that I got wrong that I think were right. The videos could also be more natural sounding and interactive e.g. It would be great to have an interface with the instructor. overall though the course was good, affordable, easy to understand and complete.

I did the course for personal /professional development not necessarily for travel; therefore I cannot rate it for placement. etc.

I had already booked my flight to China and only a few weeks left till the of my departure when I came across this program - surprisingly efficient and comprehensive - I can recommend it to all who plan to teach English abroad - a fast track leading you to your goal and for a very competitive price, too.

How can this program be improved?

Well, this program WAS almost perfect for me and if anything at all, you might want to improve the voice quality of the video material.

Thanks

I am very grateful for the opportunity to acquire a TESOL certificate in such a convenient and distant way. After I had done thorough research on available courses I finally picked the Uni- prep institute that provided the course. It has turned out to be the right choice and the best experience of distant learning as I could do it whenever I had time and energy.

Just took the TESOL course. It was much less content than i expected but it was covered most bases. The material was succinct yet comprehensive. Definitely not a breeze but not too hard to go through either.

Overall 10

I just finished the TESOL certificate program, and I have to say, I am very impressed with the quality of the course materials. Every unit was extremely interesting and relevant to my needs and interests. Even though I have many years of teaching experience, I feel that this course has helped me become a better teacher. I have been able to incorporate many of the course's techniques and suggestions into my lessons. Thank you UNI-Prep!!!

PS I didn't need help with job placement, and there was no button for N/A, so please don't misconstrue the rating of one for poor service! I hope to take continue with the diploma course one day. I HIGHLY recommend this program!

TESOL Certificate program

The TESOL Certificate programme is very interesting, contextual and innovative in approach. Upon the course completion I feel inspired to do my very best to contribute to society as there are so many techniques and real life experiences. I learnt especially the teaching techniques that will help me master English teaching from beginner to more advanced level students.

Straightforward Online TESOL Course

I have just completed my TESOL Certificate with UNIPrep. It was a cost effective, straight-forward course for getting certified in TESOL. The learning material was useful and the elearning portal was simple to use.

For the quiz questions to be more general rather than specific answers which could be found in the learning materials.

TESOL Certificate Thoughts

Overall 8

Completed the UNI-Prep TESOL Certificate course. I found it very useful and informative, in fact I wish I took this course before I completed my degree in business. It would have given me more reason to study harder and understand why teachers do things we may feel are unnecessary. Awesome course! It made me want to study more because, as it turns out my knowledge of teaching and public speaking needed improvement.
This program certainly has a lot of bang for your buck.

How can this program be improved?

I'd recommend an option that pops up to show where you went wrong at what the correct answers were for the particular quiz after the 2nd try.

Attending the on line TESOL course held by Uni-Prep has been a formative and effective experience. The provided materials are interesting and well focused on Teachers needs; some useful tips are given to help Teachers in managing different classrooms, promoting a supportive and positive Learning environment.

How can this program be improved?

The videos could be more engaging if the speaker could be visible and maybe it could be provided more practical material, such as concrete examples of classrooms activities.

I am happy that I choice Uni prep to started my career as a teacher. They help me through videos and good lesson material the basics of becoming a teacher. And when I had a question it was easy to reach them and they responded quickly. Not only I learned a lot about teaching students, but it gave me a better opinion who I want to be as a teacher.
Now, just finished my course I can not wait to start in real life

How can this program be improved?

Online TESOL Diploma Course

Overall 10

I want to say that studying in the online Uni-Prep Institute was a great experience, because I found that all the unit contents of the course were not only interesting but extremely useful.

I hope the staff can improve the course even more in terms of offering students the capabilities to initiate forums to discuss course contents, as sometimes I found it highly useful and necessary.

My experience with Uni-Prep Institute was magnificent. However, there are a few things to consider for improving the course content and system. For one, I couldn't contact other students to initiate discussion forums about unit topics. Another thing I found interesting to improve is the instructors' response time, but still, as I said before, I found the course very informative and appealing.

Still, overall, I believe that everything I learned in the course will make me a better teacher.

How can this program be improved?

1. By offering students the capabilities to initiate discussion forums about unit contents or topics.
2. By. reducing the instructors´ response time when students wish to ask for clarification or help.
3. By assigning written work tasks or homeworks.
4. By providing post-exam feedback assistance.

I enjoyed taking the TESOL certificate course with UNI-prep because I found in very easy and stress-free. I was able to do it at my own pace within a reasonable amount of time. I liked that the reading material contained tips and resources that will be very useful for when the time comes to put the knowledge into practice in the classroom.

This was a great program. It was short but fulfilling, and I learned a lot completing this program. I was able to finish the program by myself, and in my own pace. The reading materials were very informative, and I believe what I have learned this past week will help me teach English to non-English speakers. If there is one con about this program is that some of the quizzes' questions were really vague. Some of the answers I could not find in all the reading materials I reviewed.
