Re: Best online course for experienced teacher?

Hello, Many experienced teachers take our 250-hour online course (www.ontesol.com), which is an extension of Coventry House International's 5-week Trinity CertTESOL program. Now, if you want to teach in the American public system, you need a minimum of a BA in Education and no TEFL qualification, on...

Re: B.S. Degree - No TESL - Where would you recommend?

Yes, never pay a recruiting agency or TEFL school for job placement service! Some charge many times over the tuition fee for their TEFL course, between $600 and $1,000, for "hassle-free" job placement, but the truth is that it is the English institute that hires you which gets you the return airfare...

Re: TESL-Canada vs. CELTA

ian_g wrote: Trinity and CELTA are the 2 "MUST HAVE" TEFL qualifications globally Truth is that the extra $700 to $1000 that you pay for a Trinity or CELTA do not add any real value in comparison to TESL Canada except for the name on the certificate. I can state this because CHI offers the Trinity ...

Re: TESL-Canada vs. CELTA

Systematic, Our courses are recognized by Trinity, TESL Canada, and ACTDEC. IATEFL and the Teachers of College are not accrediting organizations and we do not state so anywhere on our website or at any blog. We don’t have any intention on our part to convey such message with the level of accreditati...

Re: am a complete newb with basic questions

Hi Pints, Thailand is a great place to teach and live at your age. Wages may not be that great but enough to get by and travel around the country, which is truly amazing. At Koh Samui, you will find a diverse range of fun activities such as snorkeling, sea kayaking, bird watching, bungee jumping, el...

Re: Is this Tesol course safe?

No problem Alex, I'll state I'm from Ontesol on every comment I mention its courses. But I'm not trying to comment as spam. I only respond to certain comments about what people think of on-site/online courses and accreditations, and as part of my argument I mention that Ontesol is not like any other...

Hi Tachi, Instead of spending more than $1,300 on an unaccredited course, you should consider Ontesol's 250-hour online program (only $975). This course and the 20-hour practicum (You can take it anywhere in the world) is recognized by TESL Canada Professional Standard 2 and ACTDEC UK Level 3. It's ...

Re: How recognised are online TEFL qualifications?

It's always better to get some kind of certificate and many people cannot afford $2,000 for a Trinity or CELTA. The least one could do is take a 100-hour certificate, which is the minimum standard required in most countries. Then there is Ontesol's 250-hour certificate with practicum (Recognized by ...

Hello, If you are traveling as a family, I suggest that you look for work in Korea. They pay $2,500-$4,000 a month plus benefits such as subsidized accommodation, return airfare, and bonuses. They are always in demand of teachers. Another place that offers high salaries is Hong Kong, which pays up t...

Re: Distance learning MA in TEFL

Most countries require a minimum of a 100-hour certificate for entry level jobs. Ontesol's 250-hour course plus the practicum is recognized worldwide ( Including Australia, Canada, UK, Saudi Arabia, UAE, and private ESL/EFL schools in the US, where they do not accept online certificates).

Re: Distance learning MA in TEFL

Most online courses aren't recognized in Saudi Arabia. Ontesol's 250-hour Specialized TESOL Certificate plus the 20-hour practicum is because this program is recognized by TESL Canada Professional Standard 2.

Re: Should I take a TESL course?

It depends where you want to teach. Some schools will accept your MA in elementary education, but you should have some credits on teaching EFL/ESL.

These are introductory courses for people who want to travel and are not sure if they want to pursue a teaching career for ...
