Choose this program!!

There are lots of TEFL course options. I would highly recommend International TEFL Academy. I opted to complete the on-line course. The materials were appropriate and adjusted for on-line learning. I had access to resources during my course completion, while I completed the practicum and life-long job guidance. How great is that!? In addition, there are so many resources about job searching and preferred schools. A great choice and so much value to the course.

International TEFL Academy

In my experience ITA provided me with an invaluable experience of learning and support in the convenience of an online course, without being overly expensive. I found the course challenging and comprehensive, and I feel that it has prepared me to step into a classroom and be an effective teacher. The curriculum was much more difficult than I had anticipated from an online course, but they offered easy to navigate support for any issues that I had, which weren't many. I would recommend ITA to anyone looking to become an ESL/EFL teacher.

What would you improve about this program?
I don't think the program can be improved, it had everything I needed.

She decided she could, So she did!

I packed my bags and moved abroad to Italy and have looked back since. I searched for a month about all the different courses and online companies as well as in person venues. I always came back to ITA. Shortly, before making the jump I discussed my desire to teach abroad with a close friend. Little did I know the information she was withholding! After hearing about her online experience with ITA I instantly had to contact an adviser to speak about my viability with the program. After speaking with Amanda my path was aligned. I signed up for the course starting on February 12th, 2018. (I know not that long ago, right?) Well, at first getting back to school was difficult. I had to redefine my study habits and sleep schedule. I worked full time while completing the program. I worked really hard and you have to work really hard. The course isn't easy. It test your creativity, flexibility, and perseverance through weekly reading, blog post, and assignments. My Instructor Kenneth always gave honest and critical feedback which is what I needed. I appreciated his forwardness and correction through the online platform. The fellow classmates I have met along the way have strengthened my network of friends worldwide! Everyone assumes that completeing the course online isn't tailored to each student but I highly disagree! My assignments all cam from me and what I found to fit best under the criteria given. This trained me to be agile in the classroom. At the end they offered a FREE additional 2 week course in Business Professionals and Young Learners! I took advantage of this option and I gained so much newfound knowledge that I didn't even think about. Like remember those rhythms we learned as a child... those actual are great in teaching English as a Foreign Language. Since completing this course I have received multiple job offers overseas in Asia and Europe. I am now teaching online with VipKid and it is so much fun. The kids are great and the schedule is flexible with my other full time job. I will be accepting a position teaching abroad within the next week. Shhhh..... I haven't told anyone yet!!!
