Comprehensible, flexible, useful, brief but broad

9/10

Flexible, quality, brief but comprehensible, many fields covered. Grading should be more difficult for course attenders, in a way of changeable questions during other attempt, compared to first attempt.
In general, I am so satisfied, and I would recommend it. I hope it will be useful in finding a job.
Engage students more during learning process, by putting quizzes after severally proper sections. It's gonna stick better into brains.

Opportunity of a Lifetime

10/10

Taking courses through Uni-Prep not only provided me the possibility of teaching English abroad, but also helped me to gain the necessary skills to be an English Teacher. By jsut being a native speaker, I felt I had the skills to communicate in an effective way but lacked the skills to actually lead a classroom of various ages. Through the lesson plans, I was able to gain insight on how to better lead a classroom of students learning the English language. Uni-Prep was very helpful in providing the main skills for being an English teacher and I really appreciate this! :)

How can this program be improved?

Better clarification in the readings would help to avoid confusion on quizzes :) But overall, great course!

The courses are listed out starting at the written skills and ends at listening comprehension. There are examples provided for every level of student and ways to deal with disruptions in the classroom and various other things that may happen as you teach.

Easy, fast and concise

10/10

I am very happy because I could finish my TESOL exam and get my certificate very fastly. I have large experience teaching and anyways, I could learn somethings and get in touch with some new technics and information about teaching English. I would advise everybody to take this program. If you are not experience, you can learn a lot from here. If you are experienced, you can improve, too. I was postponing to get this certification, but now, I see that I lost my time. It was easy, fast and the content so informative and updated. I highly recommend it.

It's helpful

5/10

I have finished this course for 120-hour online TESOL,I think it is so great and convenient for an English teacher,and this course is very easy for me .

I hope I can get a better job with this TESOL certificate.

It took me 2weeks to learn this coures and it improved my English skills on listening speaking reading and writing.

There are so many teachers who want to get this certificate,because it is more professional for a teaceher,as a teacher we should learn more teaching skills and then we can help more and more students.

Great for teachers with experience in need of theory

9/10

This course is a great way to familiarize yourself with both basic grammatical theory and some practical classroom strategies. As a teacher with experience only with adult learners, I found the pace and coverage of material very helpful for honing my approach to learners of different ages.

The lesson units are composed of a reading and video component, both of which compliment each other in the information needed to successfully complete the quizzes. The quizzes themselves do require a measure of interpretation and critical thinking, which is a good way to ensure that students understand the basics and can apply them in real-world situations.

Continuing on...

7/10

UNI-Prep has helped me see the many layers and angles of teaching. It inspired me with its logical, yet sophisticated explanations. I was able to see nuances and subtle details I didn't before. Of course it helped a great deal with versatility as well and has sharpened my ability to be be flexible. Thank you for helping me with this continuing journey. I wasn't looking for a destination, but direction and incentive. Thank you for the experience.

How can this program be improved?

Not sure it can be. It simply requires research, focus and interest that either exists, or not.

Feedback on course TESOL Certificate

9/10

I truly enjoyed the course. I specifically liked that the timing for finishing the course was stretched out for 12 months for me to finish it. As I'm taking this course online and overseas, and due to all my other obligations, this was most beneficial. The instructions given in each unit were very straightforward and simple...I do feel that this course is definitely helping me in being a much better teacher...Thank you :)

Great Experience - Quick and Easy

9/10

I definitely thought my certificate would take longer than it did! It only took me two weeks to complete, doing 1 unit a day. Each unit takes 45 minutes or so. Some of the audio on the videos were odd but otherwise it was very easy to navigate, very easy to complete and an overall good experience that was worth the price. I was like a lot of people, trying to figure out whether to spend $1500 on a fancy Cambridge course or just the $250. I don't plan on getting a job for another 6 months with the certificate so fingers crossed that the validity of the certificate is honored by institutions!

Experience for Life

7/10

One more accomplishment for my Life. Really good for making new decisions or starting to travel the world.
It is affordable, and can easily fit into any schedule. The videos range from fifteen to twenty-five minutes long, the reading assignments are well organized, and the assessments are straightforward.
The program gives the opportunity to freedom and discover new things. the course is really completed and capable to learn everything fast even if you never thought to be a teacher.
I really Recommend.

Practical, Useful, and Quick!

10/10

Recommended! This course is great for those looking to get their teaching English experience started. There is a good balance for general teaching methods and activities to implement once in the teaching environment.

The text is a great review to what was covered in the video portion. Of course the text intuitively goes into more detail to cover any lingering thoughts you may have had during the video. I think they supplement it well.

The quizzes are very straighforward and fair in relation to what was covered in the study material.

A note to those in a time crunch: Because a lot of this was good review and I had a sense of urgency, I was able to finish in less than 48 hours.

Thanks UniPrep! I am sure to revert back to the material once I get a job! :)

How can this program be improved?

Offer more lesson plan examples. Although not necessary, visual aids in the text and video presentation would bring the material to life more.

Great Online Program!

9/10

This program was great, because it gave me the flexibility to complete all of the study materials and quizzes at my own pace. The combination of videos and reading assignments really prepared me for all of the assessment quizzes. All of the resources were packed with valuable content, and I am excited to start incorporating everything that I have learned into my own classroom this fall. I highly recommend UNI-Prep to all who are interested in teaching English abroad.

Great course, loved it!

10/10

I needed a basic TESOL certificate to start my teaching career, and this was just perfect! The videos are good ( could be improved on though) and the written material was very good. The material is presented in a clear and easy to remember manner and a logical sequence. The written material is also downloadable, and Uni-prep has a youtube channel you can subscribe to for further reference of the video material.
I'll start looking for a job probably online at first!

How can this program be improved?

perhaps add videos of class room teaching. Also, some of the links in unit 10 are expired, please update those too!

Teaching Abroad

8/10

The course covered basic teaching and language dynamics and provided a great deal of background data and very much emphasized the responsibility of the teacher to facilitate learning. The presentation of educator terms and recommended approaches was certainly a help and was very culturally inclusive. Video of actual classroom teaching in progress could perhaps have enhanced the experience in order to give a more "real-world"understanding of what future teaching opportunities will present. I would recommend this program to anyone who is starting off on the pursuit of educating in a foreign country/

TESOL Certificate

10/10

When I was looking into getting a TESOL certification there were so many options. It was hard to tell which programs were quality programs. I was glad to find one that was an 120 hour course that was also accredited. The class was affordable and easy to navigate. I appreciated having both videos and reading materials. I learned a lot of information and feel like it was well taught. I am glad I chose Uni-Prep.

Pretty good for the cost

10/10

I needed a TEFL fast and they delivered. The materials were quite exhaustive and well written. The videos were well explained. There was no practical experience and you'd never know why you got a wrong answer on the quizzes. The course itself is extremely flexible, so that is a plus if you have a full time job. I'd recommend it for sure. There is no practical experience though, but it's understandable considering the course is completely online.

How can this program be improved?

See if they can get some better feedback from instructors, or a way to get practical experience, though it may be hard considering it's completely online.

UNI-Prep 120-hour Certificate

10/10

While I have some general experience tutoring and casually teaching English, this course was a great introduction into the more professional aspects of being an ESL teacher. I would recommend this course to those who wish to start taking their English-teaching goals more seriously.

It's a great course to prepare you for formal tutoring and even classroom situations. While lacking in specific resources to help with creating lesson plans, UNI-Prep's program makes up for it in its abundance of general lesson plan examples and ideas, along with helpful bibliographies.

Overall, it is a course that meets the introductory needs of the beginning teacher all the way through to a substantive review for more experienced ESL educators.

How can this program be improved?

The assessment portion of this course was a simple quiz that focused on grasping the main ideas of the unit. While convenient and low-pressure, I would argue that this is possibly the weakest portion of the course. More length and substance to some of the units' assessments would be a welcome improvement.

Affordable & Easy with Full Time Schedule

10/10

My experience with the Uni-Prep Course was fantastic. I was initially worried about the time commitment on top of being a student, working with an internship, and school work assignments. I also was trying to be mindful about purchasing a TESOL course that was affordable, and this course was definitely in my budget! There are ten units, a video, reading assignment, and quiz per unit. If you are an advanced English speaker, I recommend watching the videos on an increased speed of 1.25x or 1.5x to be more time efficient. Additionally, you get two chances per quiz, and they take the highest grade. I recommend using this to your advantage and taking the quizzes back to back while the content is fresh in your mind. It is very easy to excel in this course and enjoy the process. I definitely recommend this course!

good experience

10/10

all course is divided into units, each of them has a video explanation and about 15 pages of theory, that you have to read. After you read 1 unit, you take a quiz and test your knowledge what you learned by reading and watching the video. After you finish all the units, you can have a certificate. Everything is clear, detailed, so it's a nice experience, which give you a good quality knowledge and teaches you exactly what you can need during the lessons. I recommend everyone, who doesn't have time to attend classes and want to make courses online at your own comfortable schedule
