TEFL Certificate with Teaching Nomad/ University of Colorado - Wow

I wanted to get a TEFL certificate to further my career in teaching overseas. Teaching Nomad / The University of Colorado had a great program. When I needed help, they were able to address any needs in a timely fashion. Their learning program was useful, and helped me. They were always very responsive, and helped direct me where and when I needed assistance. Shout out to Flavio, the problem-solver who can find unique solutions especially when you're in a jam. The teaching practicum portion was quite useful knowing that my instruction would be analyzed to maintain a sufficient level of quality.

  • Fast
  • Fair-priced
  • Helpful, career building
  • I have no real concerns - I was very pleased with the experience

Excellent Experience

I am not teaching language of any type. I am a science teacher. The local govt. where I am going to teach suddenly decided all foreign teachers had to have a TEFL certificate. Teaching Nomad's online TEFL course was a lifesaver. I opted to do the instructorless option. I was able to go at my own speed and did not have to attend online lectures. This was key as I was already teaching full time. Their course educated me on how to teach English as a foreign language if I ever need to. Overall I had a great experience and would recommend this for anyone who may need a TEFL certificate but does not teach English.

What would you improve about this program?
This instructorless option was perfect for my situation. If you were an experienced teacher, this course would probably be quite adequate for you. If it is your first time teaching overseas, or if you are going to a school where you will not have much support, you would probably want the option that comes with an instructor.

Teaching Nomad has helped me for about 3 years!

My first job in Taiwan was through utilizing Teaching Nomad back in 2016. Every year, I always went back to Teaching Nomad to get them to help me find a new teaching position! Just recently, I had the pleasure of having Sylvia Spanos be my advisor for this upcoming semester. I loved that she was patient, always searching for jobs that matched my criteria, and did well to communicate across two different time zones!

I would recommend Teaching Nomad! Thank you for all the help throughout the years!

I became a better teacher because of this!

I feel as though I learned how to become a better teacher because of this program. The teachers gave me great feedback after every teaching practice and I got the chance to improve my teaching skills with each practice. I also received great resources that I'll be using in the continuation of my teaching career and I made great friends in the class that I'm still in connection with. We learned how to create a through out written lesson plan, the different things we need to be aware of such as teaching online v.s teaching in person and teaching groups who have different level of learning.

What would you improve about this program?
I would say that the program can improve by staying in the 2 hour classes when it comes to lectures.

My experience in my TEFL course with Teaching Link

I am happy to tell that Teaching Link helped me a lot to improve as a professional in ESL teaching. I learnt a lot in the course and I reviewed some techniques and principles I haven't got in touch thoroughly in college. I remembered such lessons and I can happily say that they helped me to reassure my ESL teaching performance and to apply such principles in my teaching practice. Moreover, I got a really nice certification that allows me to teach abroad in any country I want to go to. I believe this is one of the nicest experiences I've ever had.

What would you improve about this program?
As I told before, the Grammar guide was good and condensed. However, I would like a section about preffixes and suffixes to be included in a nearby future in the guide.

This course exceed my expectations!

I have a great experience about this course. I took this course only because it was a requirement to get a job in China but this course exceed my expectations. My two teachers were very knowledgeable. They have experience teaching English and give us feedback that helps to make improvements in a short period of time. They also help with ideas to build a good lesson plan. They pay attention to your body language, your ability to communicate and class management in terms of content and time.The course provides useful tools to start your career as an English teacher regardless of whether or not you have experience in the area.

What would you improve about this program?
It was difficult sometimes to download files from teams.

My experience with Teaching Link

I think to take a certification with Teaching Link was really good. I felt confident to know there are these kind of programs to teach abroad. To go back to the basics is not easy, but this course was one of my favorites due to this experience. I can only say that this course helped me to reinvent my lesson plans and to re design the way I teach.
Thanks to this program I am thinking about teaching abroad in China. Now that I am getting my TEFL certificate I feel more confident about my teaching skills and I belive I can help other people to learn English.
To finish, I would like to say thank you to all the instructors that are in charge of Teaching Link. They helped me a lot and I highly recommend their programs.

What would you improve about this program?
Maybe the program can include a little bit more about educational approaches or classroom management strategies. These topics would help to the future teachers a little bit more during their work experiences teaching abroad.

Excellent Assistance

I would highly recommend teaching nomad to any job seekers out there. It has an impressive website with a multitude of job advertisements from many countries. I was assisted by Jayne who was incredibly professional, helpful and supportive at all times. She alerted me to suitable job openings and also arranged interviews for me. The company also arranged regular online job fairs which was also extremely convenient and helped me to get into contact with various schools. Teaching nomad is an exemplary company and exactly what you need if you are looking for teaching jobs.
