Teaching English in Prague i-to-i TEFL review, submitted by Catherine.
It took me a while to decide on whether I should take my TESOL (TEFL) course online or in-class. I wanted to be teaching English in Prague. Prague, btw, is the capital city of the Czech Republic (Czechia). I spent time searching through forums and Reddit to see if I really needed to fork out so much money on one of the in class courses which quite a few schools run in the city. Some answers suggested an Online TESOL would be fine. Some answers suggested (more strongly) that an Online TESOL wouldn’t be accepted in Prague and that only the in class TESOL courses are recognised. Apparently, and I’m not certain if this is true or not, the Prague in class TESOL schools are the people writing most of the pro in class answers. Again, I’m not certain of this is the case, but I do know now that this isn’t good information.
I took my Online TESOL with i-to-i TEFL. I saw some programmes labelling it TEFL and others labelling it TESOL. It’s the same course with a different name. The i-to-i course was great! It taught me everything I needed to know about teaching English, and when I applied for jobs in Prague, I didn’t come up against any barriers with my Online certification.
I’m teaching English in Prague from September. Yay! 🙂
The money is OK. It’s not as much as I’ve read that you can earn in Asia. But I wanted to remain in Europe and perhaps later I’ll travel further afield. By taking the TESOL online, I literally saved a small fortune compared to if I had chosen to take one of the city’s in class courses. My advise is to take the TESOL online.
