MyTEFL review, submitted by Anonymous.
I’d rather not have my name published with my review because it seems MyTEFL have a significant online presence and I don’t want any issues further down the road because of a negative write-up of their school.
If you’re reading this then maybe you were also convinced to take your T-E-F-L (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) course with MyTEFL because of all the glowing online reviews.
I consider myself a screwed-on person and impervious to marketing pitfalls, but even I was a sucker for this company.
I read the many glowing, 5-star reviews. I saw the YouTube videos. I read the blogs by people such as twomonkeystravelgroup, whereintheworldisnina, womenontheroad, whereveriwant, etc. And this last group, were the most convincing of the MyTEFL product package.
But take a careful read through their blogs (and others) and you’ll notice the same trend. All mention the saving you can get if you use a particular course code when signing up for a course.
Look. It wasn’t a bad course. Actually, I don’t really know what a good or bad online course is like because this was my first online study experience. But it did fall WAY short of what was being shoveled by the people running those mentioned blogs.
Yes folks, they are getting paid to recommend MyTEFL so their recommendations cannot be taken with anything other than a grain of salt.
I don’t know what the “best TEFL course” is.
Perhaps it is MyTEFL. Who knows? What are the criteria anyway for being “the best”?
What I do know though is those bloggers are technically working for MyTEFL by aggressively recommending their courses and receiving a cut of your course fee in the process.
Not a 1 star review, but definitely not a 5 star review for MyTEFL. My (real) feedback – I’m not trying to flog a TEFL course through this review with a discount code – is that the course was OK-ish.
