Advanced 120-Hour Course Teflen review, submitted by Adriana.
This was an OK course that got the job done.
The TEFLen Advanced 120-Hour Course seems to be one of the more affordable programs to take your teaching English certificate through and for what you pay I think you get more or less a good deal.
I can’t fault the course at all. It’s very well structured and dives straight into the intense study from the get-go. No messing around at all. The course is divided into 6 sections (Teaching English/Grammar/Skills/Lesson Plan/Sub Skills/Materials) with a heavy focus on teaching theory and how to create useful lesson plans. The lesson plans section was my favorite section and I received useful feedback from TEFLen as I began developing my plans.
The certificate is issued punctually and what stands out is the certificate verification feature. What this means is employers can check the validity of your certificate on the TEFLen website and you can also check it yourself by inputting your verification code. This is a neat feature and (I guess?) must be in place to prevent someone from forging a certificate themselves.
A bit of a let down though was the “100% Job Assistance” that they advertise. Actually, in hindsight, I’m not really sure what this means anyway. There wasn’t any job assistance with this program.
I was able to find work anyway in a relatively short period of time. It just would have been nice to have had someone who knows the market well to guide me in the right direction.
Overall this is a good Online TEFL option with the course content and bonus certificate feature being the highlights of the program.
