Good course for the money

The course is very thorough. Provides great tips for applying to your teaching job, if you are currently working with students. The course is not overly long or overly difficult, and it is internationally certified. Overall, a good experience.
The course provides 10 Units of reading material, and 9 videos. A thorough comprehension and absorption of these lessons is really required in order to pass the Unit exams. Each Unit will take approximately an hour to complete, depending on how fast you read. You only need a 50% to pass each exam, which personally I think is too low. It should be 75%, or at least 65% (which is the standard in the American school system). Other than that, it is a very good program that I would recommend for anyone teaching English abroad.

What would you improve about this program?
List the countries where the accreditation has been applied and accepted, and by what government or educational body.

Worth the experience

I have spent weeks in searching for the best TESOL program. I was a bit hesitant and scared to take an online course because I have read a lot of negative reviews but then, when a friend told me that UNI-Prep is legit and did confirm it myself by doing more research about their program, I decided to register and never regretted doing it. The experience was challenging and exciting. I have learned a lot and I feel more directed now on how to help my students better by applying all those strategies that I haven't tried yet and would surely follow the tips suggested in the course on how to teach English in a fun way. And I just hope that having this certificate (plus my bachelor's and my master's and experiences) will give me more and better opportunities.

What would you improve about this program?
So far, every thing is perfect. The video/audio lecture and the reading handouts were very helpful.

Best online TEFL course out there

Amazing course - I was in a rush to get through my TEFL as quickly as possible to get work. I have a teaching background though not with languages but I managed to complete the course in a day!

There are 10 units and each is comprised of a 20 minute video and a PDF between 10 & 20 pages long. You then complete the quiz after you have gone through that material.

The first unit encourages you to write a resume/CV which most people will need to do anyway so to have that included in the course material was a bonus. They also provide you with prompts on what to write and give an example of a resume.

Really nice to have the quizzes at the end of each section rather than assignments too. You get two attempts at each quiz and you are shown what you answered incorrectly the first time from the multiple choice questions.

Online worked perfect for me. Best course out there for sure!

What would you improve about this program?
Nothing - this course exceeded my expectations in so many ways!

The course is well organized and covers all essential information needed to be The an ESL teacher.
It prepares you for teaching children or adults at all levels - beginner, intermediate or
advanced. The questions in the quiz were well chosen to test you on the knowledge you
obtained from watching the video and reading the text for each unit. Sufficient time was
allowed for each quiz and it was very helpful to be allowed two attempts for each unit quiz.
The speaker in the videos was very good, explanations were clear and many good examples
were given. The reading material was well organized and gave good information on different teaching techniques and which ones were best for children or adults and for what level they
were appropriate. Course length was just right.

What would you improve about this program?
A few more examples would be helpful, especially for the different teaching activities.

Great Course!

I wanted a suitable online TESOL certificate and I found UNI-Prep. It was really great and I learned a lot! Thank you!

The course contains all aspects of teaching English as a second language to foreigners. Throughout each of the 10 units, I was learning many new things were explained clearly and in detail.

I recommend this course if you want to get a job which requires TESOL certification because the content is rich, international shipping of the certificate is included, you can study and take the quizzes at your own pace and in any location with an internet connection and it is also accreditted internationally.

Especially for those who want to apply for work permits in certain countries, this course seems to be a great choice, so don't miss it!

What would you improve about this program?
It's pretty much complete. The reading parts had some minor errors, not in content but rather missing or misplaced words. Other than that it's pretty much perfect.

A good Course to begin with

I was looking for an online course that I can complete as soon as I want and is within my affordability.

This certainly is the course for the following reasons: able to complete at my own pace (as quickly as possible); at any place - as I travel quite often; at anytime of the day; with good supporting reading materials; and, videos to guide and reinforce learning. The materials and videos are just the correct amount and duration. I could replay the videos compare to attending classes which I would have to take notes while listening. The literature is to the point and does not dwell into redundant materials.

I would not hesitate to recommend this course.

I look forward to start my teaching adventure to foreign students at home and abroad. The ESLjobslounge has also been very helpful in posting job vacancies. This is absolutely great for a beginner like me. I could get all the help I can. Thanks!

What would you improve about this program?
I found that the some of the videos are not as clear and also the sound is a bit muffled. In addition, the slides seem to be cut-off at the bottom: not sure whether I have missed out any materials.
As for the quizzes, after both attempts have been exhausted for each unit, it would be good to display the correct answers for all questions. Otherwise the student may still not know the answer the to questions that are incorrect.
I would recommend to produce better videos and to provide the answers after the 2nd quiz attempt.

Great program, easy to understand and follow.

An excellent system I have been teaching for over 15 years and it was a fun learning experience for me, a lot of tips and great advice as well as tools to make your life a whole lot easier, It is 120 hours long but it could be finished in a lot less time than that, It took me less than a week with 3 hours a day, you have plenty of time to do each quiz so you never feel pressured, The quiz system is great because you don't have to submit a final exam at the end of the course. highly recommended especially if you only have an hour or so a day, you could do this at your own pace from the comfort of home, the office or anywhere. you are always able to pick up where you left off and know that your progress is always saved automatically for you.
Thank you

What would you improve about this program?
Video 8's audio quality was a bit poor nothing too bad but it could improve.

A good TESOL

I got my TESOL from Uni Prep in the spring of 2018. This is my updated review.

I'm certified in the state of NJ to teach elementary school and History (all grades). I had been tutoring immigrants in conversational English and had been teaching English at a private institute for a year. The school wanted me to get a TESOL certificate to round out my credentials. Uni Prep was perfect for that.

The information is sound and matches the current theories being taught in university TESOL programs. I suggest new teachers to review the course materials every month to identify ways they can improve their teaching.

I paired mine with the OPI and WPT in English to demonstrate my English levels. Many schools want proof of proficiency, so an interview (the OPI) and a written test (the WPT) are good ways to show this. As a native speaker, I got the maximum scores for both, but having those certificates allows me to demonstrate to schools that I'm a native speaker.
