150 hour TESOL Premier Plus course Global English review, submitted by Caitlin.
My motivation for taking this course was to prepare myself better for when I start teaching children over in China next year. I assumed it would just be ok to have a degree in Education, but apparently that’s not enough for the school which I’ve signed a teaching contract with and they insisted I take a TESOL course. They didn’t stipulate whether it had to be taken at a school somewhere, so I went for the much cheaper online option.
I liked the course. I do have some teaching experience from when I volunteered in Cambodia, so I did have a general awareness of how to teach and what should be taught before taking this course. There was a lot I didn’t know of course, and this was mostly covered within the 150 hour TESOL Premier Plus course syllabus.
I know it’s not the fault in any way of Global English, and not the fault of the school which I will be reaching for, but I really didn’t see the necessity of taking a TEFL course when I have a 3 year degree and when I have teaching experience. I guess their logic is that they want their teachers to be knowledgeable in TEFL teaching, but a 4-week TESOL course can’t possibly prepare you for teaching as much as a 3-year degree does. Oh well, never mind. Perhaps it’s because of the work permit or visa which is why it’s required.
Anyways, this course was without any major issues and I got what I needed out of it.
