TEFL Costs International TEFL Academy review, submitted by Leanne.
I didn’t realize at the time but the cost of this course is much higher than other programs offering the same syllabus and services. I thought $700 was standard pricing but I’ve seen other courses go for less than $300. The other concern for me was that while it is a self-paced course, you do have a certain start and end date which you must meet. It’s essentially an onsite course delivered in online form. There were also additional costs to have the certificate issued and additional costs for job placement services. The course operated on the Moodle system, which has a learning curve before you start to get a hang of its workings.
What I did like about this course was how deep it delved into the subject matter and I also appreciated the quick feedback responses from my tutor. Video tutorials are also part and parcel of the course and most of them were clear, but a couple appeared outdated and difficult to follow. I also thought that the test questions were relevant to the materials learned. The course is accredited, so that is an obvious bonus too.
I would recommend the course purely on the basis of the quality of the tuition, but I’m not so sure it’s worth the high price tag.
