TEFL Con The TEFL Academy review, submitted by Elisa.
I was conned by some woman who runs the website TPRteaching.com.
When I was conducting my due diligence on TTA (The TEFL Academy) her website kept showing up- masquerading as an impartial reviews website. She has a few tips on teaching, but mostly she evaluates TEFL programs and the one she pushes the most is the TEFL Academy. On every page, there was a popup banner, where you could click and save money on the TTA course. It’s only recently that I’ve found out that she works for the TEFL Academy and she earns a commission on each purchase. I don’t have anything against anyone making money on affiliate marketing, but the TEFL Academy course was terrible. It was full of errors, clumsily pieced together, and there wasn’t any of the support provided which was promised. I also had to pay $170 for the delivery of my TEFL certificate. that was on top of the almost 500 Euros which I paid for the course! The cherry on the stale cake was when I found out that the course isn’t even internationally recognized. It’s a con through and through. I have written to the Better Business Bureau to complain and have asked them to take down the TPRteaching website for false advertising. Avoid this TEFL program folks!
