Extremely Helpful

I loved the videos and the lay out they provided. A lot of the reading would go over just what the video did, but reading alone can be hard for me to retain. Listening and writing my own notes definitely helped me grasp what was being taught in each Unit
It was a clear and very concise layout. No confusion about what each unit was about and what was to be expected
The quizzes were for the most part exact to what you would hear in the video or read in the papers. There were a few questions in the quizzes, that no matter how much I read and looked for the answers, they were suggestive to an answer, but so broad it was hard to really be sure.
However, I was very pleased with the knowledge I gained and the layout and accessibility of this TESOL 120-Hour program. I could not ask for a better course with such easy access which is so important when you have kids.

Solid theoretical & practical instruction

Explains which parts of ESL are most challenging for students and why, how to lessen anxiety/establish rapport with students (strong emphasis on fostering a warm, caring classroom environment), and lots of ideas for classroom activities to develop specific skills. Also good curriculum development advice.

If you don't have a teaching background and plan to move abroad to teach ESL, this is definitely worth it even if it's not required by the country/school.

Academically, it's pretty easy. You get two attempts per test and need to score at least a cumulative grade of 50% to pass the course. All of the content is in the readings, and the lectures basically repeat about 70% of the information with visuals/audio and more examples.

If you pay attention, you'll definitely be better-equipped to run a successful classroom.

What would you improve about this program?
Audio isn't great. It's audible but would be a lot better with quality recording equipment and editing to tighten it up.

Widened my Experience

I have been a teacher in my home country and the TESOL at UNI-Prep Institute really gave me more tools to use in my job! Besides being online, allowing me to study at my own pace, the course is easy to follow, has a great content and is very objective.
The content is very well divided and it has a video and a written file about each unit. This makes easy for us to find a specific topic. Besides all this, the price is absolutely reasonable and it also orients us in jobs abroad. I am really happy about finding UNI-Prep Institute.
I totally recommend!! Thanks, UNI-Prep!!

UNI-PREP 120-HOUR TESOL ONLINE COURSE

In my opinion, this course is quite brief but very, very effective, especially for those with 'zero' teaching knowledge or experience; so, if you really want to start your career as a professional English teacher, don't hesitate to register this course.
I will probably register a further course from Uni-prep to enhance my teaching knowledge in the future (when I have enough conditions).
I'm sure Uni-prep will be more and more developed!!!!!!!!!

What would you improve about this program?
At the end of each unit, there should be a concluded summary of main teaching tool(s).

my personal review

I really enjoyed every part of this course -it really helped me to sharpen my teaching skills. The schedule was very flexible as it allowed me to study at my own pace. To put it in a nutshell, taking the TESOL was a very rewarding experience for me. Thanks to UNI - PREP Institute, I’ve now become TESOL certified to teach Englsih as a second language to people of different ages. I will make sure to encourage all of my colleagues to take their TESOL certificate at UNI-Prep.

A Great Course

The 10 units of the TESOL Certificate Course are covering the most challenging issues about teaching English as a second language. The reading materials, videos, quizzes and the additional resources have provided me with all the knowledge and skills needed to succeed in my job as a language teacher.
Moreover , the course is well balanced in such a smart way that makes you feel confident , and eager to learn more and more. It goes to the important and practicle tools about teaching ESL.

Now or Never

In the age of nineteen to have a TESOL certificate is magnificant. I believe to be a member of TELF teachers will give me extra motivation and chance for working abroad. In the 21st century has the century of inovation and technology. So I want to use all the technology while i am teaching. And i want to be an inspiring teacher for my students in all ages. This education has given me that opportunity. Thank you all. I could donthis now or never. Time goes on, there is no time to wait.

Tesol Uniprep Review

The course content and videos provided extensive information on the concept of teaching English as a second language. I had to give props to the pdf files on the different areas taught. It also provided assistance for teaching in general such as highlighting the importance of lesson planning and the often difficult task of management of the class. However, my only downfall is that it is simply too expensive for what was offered.
Furthermore, some of the questions had questionable responses and hence, I was a bit peeved when the answers were given wrong after it was explicitly stated that this was so. Overall, I would recommend if you require thorough knowledge of the content.

What would you improve about this program?
Lower the cost of the program and review answers to some of the questions asked.

TESOL/ Uni-Prep

I found this to be a quite thorough, clear and friendly course. Occasionally the audio was not as crisp as I would have liked. The grammar / punctuation reviews were excellent. Also a few of the quiz questions were either tricky & in one case, false, according to my review.

The material was often new to me, coming from a background in Healthcare for the past 40 years, so I appreciated becoming familiar with the "teaching ESL 'language' and grammar review.

All in all I'm very pleased to have chosen Uni-Prep and would recommend to to others.

What would you improve about this program?
Clearer audio; more interesting videos

A great TEFL option

I enjoyed the TESOL course - as a seasoned teacher, it really helped me to focus my teaching skills to benefit EFL/EAL students. It gave a lot of useful activities and ideas, plus good foundational principles and knowledge, often drawing attention to things that are so automatic as a native speaker, that they are often overlooked. I was able to complete the course comfortably in less than a fortnight. I highly recommend this course for anyone considering teaching or even just working with EFL/EAL communities.

What would you improve about this program?
Feedback on the quizz questions, at least giving you the correct answer after you've finished your final attempt, but with an explanation would also be beneficial - for the ones I got wrong, I really did not understand why, and feedback is so important in the learning process.

A Solid Program

I'm a middle school teacher with thirteen years of experience. I wanted to get a TESOL certificate, since I've been tutoring in English for a few years and wanted to be able to teach abroad or online. UNI-Prep was recommended on a few forums I read, so I gave it a try.

The materials are great and have helped me focus my lesson planning in my middle school teaching job. I would recommend this to both beginners and veteran teachers.

What would you improve about this program?
The fonts on the site are a bit hard to read, but that's not a huge deal.

Positive Experience

Not a bad course if you happen to already have a lot of classroom experience but no certification. As someone who taught abroad for 11 years back in the day when TEFL certificates were not necessary, I had no desire to repeat classroom training, so this course was perfect for me. I was pleased to pick up several tips on creating more effective tests as well as fun classroom activities (we can all use more of those), and I especially appreciated the "Additional Resources" section at the end of every unit.

It remains to be seen how useful this certificate will prove to be in the real world. My experience with the course, however, was positive.

What would you improve about this program?
Some questions on the quizzes seem somewhat arbitrary.

TESOL Program

The TESOL course offered by UNI-Prep is very informative, helpful and affordable. It's a short program where you can learn at your own pace and gain so many tips on teaching English. I plan to use the knowledge I gained from this course in my future classes. All aspects of teaching English were covered extensively and examples were given. They went over the four skills of teaching reading, writing, speaking and listening. Each module comprises a video, write-up and quiz. They also give you the option to sign up on a job board for job opportunities teaching English as a second language. I would highly recommend this program.

Important points for teaching successfully

It was a challenging course, that made me think of the different aspects that i have to keep in mind in order to be a successful teacher. I believe Its gonna be really helpful for sharing my knowledge in the most productive way.

Its important if u want to get a JOB, if u make this certificate Its more likely that u will find one. It Gives u credibility, it will test your skills, and will give proof to people that are interested in u that u have what it takes.

Excellent coverage of the topic

Uni-prep did and excellent job providing the material needed to get a firm foundation in Teaching English. The handouts and videos were well constructed and encouraged the learner to consider how they would apply the concepts in their own courses. I would have liked to have seen more in sample lesson plans, but as far as value for the expense, I feel like I was not undersold. I think that with this level of training I would be in a good position to start teaching a small number of students and as my skill developed, opening that to larger numbers.
