MyTEFL review, submitted by Anonymous.
The whole process of searching for an e-learning tefl course to take was time consuming as there are so many schools and so many course options. After a few weeks I was able to narrow the filter of my search criteria and I began searching for courses which offered 120 hour study, international job guidance, and positive feedback from program graduates. I chose MyTEFL based on its program ticking all 3 criteria.
I must write that I thought the communication with the school was good and that they answered most of my questions quickly and informatively. Access to the course was provided as soon as I made my tefl course purchase and the login area had no bugs or anything like that.
The course though is definitely not 120 hours. I could have completed it in 24 hours if I felt inclined to. And the course content was laughable. My sister could have taken it and passed. And she is 11.
Also, very vague job guidance support at the end of it.
Now, the main reason I chose MyTEFL to take my online TEFL certification with was because of the many positive reviews listed on the net. But recently I read on TrustedTEFLReviews that some online TEFL programs adopt the affiliates marketing model and I can clearly see now that MyTEFL do too. That 40% discount I received when I signed up? That would have been commission money paid from MyTEFL to the graduate who convinced me to go for it and sign up to MyTEFL.
I’m sure MyTEFL isn’t the worst course out there but readers do need to be warned that they do, in my opinion, employ dubious marketing tactics to sell their courses. I can see now that I shouldn’t have been fooled so easily by some of the glowing reviews and testimonials I found on the net of MyTEFL’s online TEFL certification course program.
I did pass the course and it did help me to get a job in the field, but it wasn’t the course or after course support experience I was led to believe it was going to be. In future, I won’t be fooled by raving reviews associated with a promo code.
