They say variety is the spice of life, but when it comes to making a choice regarding your study options, sometimes too much variety can be a bad thing. There are so many online TEFL courses available that it can be downright paralysing to have to consider them all and try to make a decision as to which is regarded as the most respected online TEFL course. Signing up for a TEFL course is an investment in both time and money so you want to be sure that you are making a good investment.
So it is necessary to do due diligence. Deciding to do an online TEFL course is a big step towards realising your dreams of Teaching English as a Foreign Language because, let’s face it, if you don’t get the TEFL qualification that dream won’t be happening. So before you give out your credit card details just willy-nilly, take some time and consider the various options.
Of course, when you are choosing an online TEFL service provider you want to be sure you are choosing the most respected online TEFL course, but how do you know? Well, the obvious way is to ask people who have done it before. Finding out the details of a course is best done by contacting past TEFL graduates of a particular course and asking them their opinion. If there is any reason they would not recommend the course, chances are they would be only too happy to talk to you about it, so as not to give that company any more business.
So how do you find these graduates? Simple: look online. Find online forums and chat rooms and look for any references to a particular course provider. Or, if you’re not sure of where to find any online forums relating to TEFL you can quite easily accomplish the same by doing a Google search.
For example, if you google The TEFL Academy online review you will find a site dedicated to online reviews of various companies. There you will find testimonials from students who have done our 120-hour online TEFL course and our 120-hour combined TEFL course. If you were to judge the TEFL Academy based on what others think of the course, you will definitely be giving us a thumbs up.
The majority of the reviews give us 5 out of 5 stars and their testimonials are positively glowing. Fantastic, brilliant, thorough and comprehensive are just a few terms used by our past students and they are all unwavering in their recommendation for the course. What’s more, it’s not only our course which receives rave reviews but also our course tutors, who do an incredible job providing our TEFL students with the support they need.
So don’t take our word for it: have a look at our online reviews and you will see that we are one of the most (if not the most!) respected online TEFL course providers and our 120-hour online TEFL course is exactly what you are looking for in a TEFL course.
