ITA Online TEFL course

Travelling the world and experiencing different cultures has always been a dream of mine but it always seemed so distant. Travelling can be expensive and overwhelming to plan and I could never find the right time. Having the opportunity to do the ITA online TEFL course has not only improved my CV and my career prospects, it has also opened so many doors for me for travelling. The course has taught me how to be an effective ESL teacher and I'm excited to put all this knowledge into practice. Enrolling in any online course or programme can be a huge risk - you can only rely on reviews and you want the best possible experience. With ITA, they provided really helpful advice over email/skype and gave me consistent support throughout the entire course. I would recommend it to anyone who would like to travel.

ITA + TEFL = True Expatriate Lifestyle

ITA creates more than an opportunity to receive your TEFL certification; they open a doorway to an expatriate world with endless possibilities. Your advisor will assist you with all your questions and offer guidance along the way.

Yes, the course is challenging, but worth every 'I think I want to pull my hair out' moments you may have. I took the TEFL course in the summer of 2014 in Italy and then moved to Germany where I started my own company and teach English strictly through private lessons.

I have traveled to now over 20+ countries and the list keeps growing. I have seen and experienced things throughout this journey most only dream of.... I highly recommend the TEFL course that way you can go explore the world, learn and teach.
