Learn TEFL review, submitted by Ansel.
If something sounds too good to be true, it usually is. The Learn TEFL course was on offer for under $20 and an adviser reached out to me to help me sign up for classes. They were extremely friendly and persistent with their help, and I thought this would be a good sign that Learn TEFL cares about its students. Unfortunately, they just want you to sign up and then you are completely on your own with no help or support. I began the course at 7:32am on a Monday morning and by 5:45pm that same day had completed the 150 hour TEFL certification course. I don’t know how Learn TEFL calculated the 150 hours which the course is meant to consist of. There are no video lectures or resources to help you learn deeper, and you won’t learn enough to really know anything about teaching English.
The only silver lining of the course was that I did become aware of just how complicated teaching grammar is.
I’m going to enroll in a more expensive course (which doesn’t cost $20) in the new year and get a recognized TEFL certificate which actually teaches the basics of how to teach. I’m giving Learn TEFL the 2 stars because I did learn something and I consider that justice for the price I paid. I wouldn’t recommend the program though and I can’t understand how anyone could teach English after taking such a course which is so sparse on instruction.
