tefl online pro 140-Hour Hybrid TESOL certification course review.
tefl online pro offers three international Online TEFL courses, but their Fast-Track (60-Hour) is only eligible for teachers already in the profession. I tried applying for this course because it would have saved me a pretty penny, but was told that despite my volunteer teaching work, I wasn’t eligible. Hey ho. Whatever.
The Professional (120-Hour) is for people like myself, who have little to no formal teaching experience and I was torn between taking this one, and their 140-Hour Hybrid, which includes 20 hours of teaching practice.
The difference between these two courses’ prices is just $150, so I enrolled in the one that would demonstrate teaching hours on my certificate.
In the end, I’m pleased I chose the latter because, at job interviews, employers consider this certification along the lines of the CELTA/Trinity.
Not that you will have any problems working on an Online TEFL, but why not invest a little more and get a CELTA equivalent for about a quarter of the price?
tefl online pro is an online school so they don’t have designated classrooms, where you get to teach your classes. This wasn’t an issue for me. I received my lesson planning forms from them, and after each class submitted them to their school offices, where they were promptly marked and given added suggestions for how I could approach my next classes.
My students were pretty much anyone from my local community who wanted a free English lesson.
Overall, I found the online study experience to be very straightforward, and I pity the person who chose a residential TEFL course instead; spending a few $$$$ to receive the same certificate as I did.
I’m giving tefl online pro nine stars from ten.
