With over a billion people learning English as a second language right now, and online learning becoming more and more popular, the career opportunities are endless!
Once you have completed the course you will be well equipped to start work as an online TEFL teacher. The course includes advice on how to find work and how to market yourself.
With so much choice and such a vast amount of conflicting information available on the Internet it can be difficult for potential TEFL course students to make the correct choice. The minimum standard for most entry-level teaching positions is a 120-Hour TEFL Certificate, however to ensure our students can access the best global opportunities our course leads to a Level 5 TEFL Certificate (168 hours), which is regulated by Ofqual (UK government).
Our course has been approved by Ofqual as the same level as the CELTA & Trinity CertTESOL qualifications. This means our course is the most internationally recognized, accessible and affordable, TEFL qualification available in the USA.
You will see many courses available that are shorter than 120-hours, these options are TEFL taster courses and will not be accepted by most employers.

If you are not sure what level your English is there are several websites where you can test it yourself, for example:
That really is it, if you qualify for all of the above, you are ready to earn your TEFL certifcate!
