TESOL certificate online International TEFL Academy review, submitted by Anna.
TESOL certificate online.
I must admit that I didn’t do any research into different TEFL courses before I chose to take the one offered by (ITA) International TEFL Academy. There are just so many and I just didn’t have the time or patience to compare each and every one of them. In the end, ITA was mostly a good fit for me.
Having now (ironically) done a bit of research (after completing the course) into other programs, I can see that the main 2 ways that ITA are different from a lot of other ones is in price and flexibility.
Price wasn’t really an issue for me because someone else paid the study for me, but if I were paying myself then I’d most definitely have done a price comparison between courses beforehand. I think the ITA course cost in the region of $1,000. It’s not a significant amount of money, but is still sizeable when compared to some other options I’ve seen.
Regarding the flexibility thing, I’ve noticed that most TEFL courses don’t seem to have exact start and end dates. ITA does, and this might be a barrier to people who are working while they study.
Despite these 2 relatively minor points, I enjoyed my ITA study experience.
Some sections were more difficult than others, but all in all I would say that this wasn’t a particularly difficult course to pass and as long as you follow the course timetable and tutor instructions you should do fine with this option.
