TEFL Academy experience

I decided to enroll into the TEFL course as I am currently doing an English teaching internship in Japan. I already have experience teaching French in my home country. However, I used to struggle with lesson planning. I also used to feel like my lessons weren’t entertaining, interesting or challenging enough. The TEFL Academy offers units on teaching (productive and receptive) skills, lesson planning and English grammar (which was very helpful since English isn’t my first language!). The course made me more confident about my teaching style and gave me many useful tips. Wherever I decide to work in the future, either in Japan or in Canada, I know that this certificate will benefit me in both countries. I think working on this certificate definitely helped me becoming a better teacher of English, but also of French.

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
To any future travelers wanting to experience teaching abroad, I would suggest considering an English teaching job. Although English isn’t your first language, many language teaching job opportunities are available all around the world. Having the TEFL certification will definitely be an asset on your resume when job hunting overseas.

TEFL Academy Experience

After living in Australia for a year doing a working holiday visa, I was back at home in Vancouver. It seemed like nothing had changed... I had gotten the travel bug really bad... so I started looking for ways to experience living abroad again. I discovered that many people teach English as a ticket to living somewhere new. Although my academic background is Biopsychology.. I thought it was time to try something new.
I was seeking an affordable way to achieve the TEFL certification on my own time, and The TEFL academy provided me with that, so it was perfect for my intentions.
The only thing that this program was lacking is recruitment help.. and I didn't find it very challenging.
Luckily, my friend from university was looking for a replacement in South Korea, so I was able to take over for her and start my adventure.

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
Take the leap, buy the plane ticket! You never know what a place is like until you experience it for yourself. Also, it's not about where you're going, it's about your mindset. You can meet the most amazing people in the most unexpected of places.
Korea has presented me with many challenges, but also provided me with many beautiful experiences and friendships.
10/10 would recommend living in another country if you're ready to grow as a person and grow your perspective of the world. Be open!

The Best and Highly Rated TEFL Course at an Affordable Price

My Level 5 TEFL Course was in San Francisco and Online. The intrusctor was very knowledgeable during the class demo. The course was comprehensive with videos, images and text to enhance comprehension of the materials.
The Course covers everything you will need to succeed as a teacher, the price was very good and its globally reorganized as a British accredited TEFL Course. I got so many help from the TEFL Academy team throughout the course.
The assignments help to re-enforce the materials and enable me to check my understanding of each sessions. The format was perfect with 2 days hands-on classroom training, scenarios and demos as in a classroom settings.
The price was reasonable for such comprehensive Course when compare to so many over-priced courses out there.

What would you improve about this program?
The only area of improvement is the job search and job hunt support.

Peer Review

I really enjoyed taking this online TEFL course. The program was a great learning experience and the staff was very helpful. I learned a lot more about teaching taking this course than any classroom experience. There were also a 2 day in-person classroom training which the students were able to participate in. The live teachers were very nice and professional with plenty years of experience. My overall goal is to teach English in Southeast Asia for one year. At the same time, I also want to be able to travel many countries in Asia and learn a new language. Some of the countries I have found very interesting are Japan, South Korea, and Vietnam. I have already traveled to many countries in Asia and Europe while living here in the United States. I hope that becoming a TEFL teacher will help me travel to more different countries.

What would you improve about this program?
I would provide more links and choices for job opportunities

Great quality, great value

I currently teach Chinese kids online, and I wanted to get a TEFL certification to keep up with the new regulations. So not only did this course satisfy that, the cost and ease of the program was great. It only took me about 2 months to finish the program, and they promptly mailed my certificate. They covered every possible aspect you could think of, and they even included one of their top-up courses for free. Their units are easy to go through, and the assignments you have to hand in are thorough and thought-provoking, and help put you in the mindset to build and run lessons. I also learned a lot about teaching and lesson planning in general, this course is not just for ESL teaching. Overall, I would definitely recommend this program to other teachers.

What would you improve about this program?
Sometimes it took them a long time to grade assignments.

So happy I did it

This opportunity allowed me to live my dream and move to cool counties. I feel like the lessons got my brain into the mode of teaching English, but more so opened the doors to allow me to apply for better jobs (where I learned a ton more). I think this is a great thing to do for anyone who is interested in teaching, language, travel, building your resume, or just wants a side hustle. Really no down side, the price is reasonable and is worth what you receive and the benifit is really nice. I received a job in less than 2 months of beginning the process. The job was my top city and at the most relevant school group in the city. There are lots of great things here, so I would totally recommend taking full advantage and going for it. Happy travels!

What was the most surprising thing you saw or did?
How quickly a place can feel like home if you set out to make it so.
