The TEFL Academy review, submitted by Leeze.
I was browsing the internet for a good TEFL course online. I am a full-time teacher, but I wanted to expand my own skills a little bit. I did some research on a variety of courses and realised there are a lot of TEFL courses and deciding on the right one was tricky. The TEFL Academy seemed legit to me. I started doing the course online and found that each unit was easy to understand. The course covered a variety of essential topics, including reading and writing lessons and teaching methods. The fact that there were interactive questions to check if you are on track really helped. The progress from one unit to another was easy to follow. I do see that if you are not familiar with teaching how some of the information would be a little bit tricky. I could see the value of every unit and why this is important within an ESL classroom or lesson. There are 3 activities to do before completing the course. The instructions were clear with good sample documents. The feedback from the assignments was not as thorough as I hoped, but I did understand why I received the mark I did. It took me 3 months to complete the course however, they allow you 6 months. The last chapter of the course has resources on cv structuring, cover letter and tips and websites to look for a job in the ESL teaching world. I have done other online studying where the instructions were unclear and there was not any help or support. That is why I have recommended The TEFL Academy to some of my friends. It has been a hassle-free and fulfilling experience. They were quick to respond to any queries that I had. I feel accomplished for completing the course and believe that this is truly a great expansion of my CV.
