The 5 best Online TEFL TESOL courses to take in 2020.

Another side effect of COVID-19, and the explosion of Online TEFL TESOL courses, has been the increase in online nastiness between schools – all vying for a slice of the Online TEFL TESOL pie.

Please remember that there are Online TEFL TESOL scams out there, and you should be wary about any programs which are not listed on Trusted TEFL Reviews. If you find a program not listed on Trusted TEFL Reviews, it might be a scam.
Another thing to watch out for is if an Online TEFL TESOL certification course program doesn’t have a company Facebook page. Another red flag is if they do have a Facebook page, but have disabled the Reviews tab.
Lastly, it needs to be pointed out that the Online TEFL TESOL industry (yes, it’s an industry) is highly competitive. Online TEFL TESOL schools writing trash about their competition online is very much so not unheard of. We suggest being very wary of any such program that spends a bit too much of its time criticizing its competitors. This is a red flag that something is rotten with their own program.
