The tefl course has some very interesting content that I never really considered. The differences between teaching students a different age levels and English language levels is apparently pretty large. I’m glad this course spends a lot of time on this topic, in part because it allowed me to decide that I would be much better served teaching children when before I thought I was going to teach high schoolers. I think the challenges of teaching high schoolers are much greater than I had previously anticipated. I’m going to be starting my first job in a few weeks. Wish me luck.

I was required to take a TEFL course in order to qualify to work in Taiwan. I wasn’t sure what I’d learn from it, but now that I’m through the course and I just started working at a cram school in Taipei, I can see where the course content lines with what I’m dealing with on a daily basis. I think it’s definitely worth your while to focus on the course when taking it because you will use the knowledge, especially the modules on teaching to specific age groups and classroom management.

I actually took a 100-hour course before. Now that I just finished my online degree, it’s time for me to get a proper work visa in China and my previous TEFL was not sufficient for my visa application in to China. So I had to take 120-hour course. Comparing the two I guess this one definitely had more practical information about how to deal with a classroom of children, what to expect, with some sample lessons and how to put them all together into a proper lesson plan. Even though I have a couple years teaching experience already, I still found it somewhat useful.

I decided not to take this course because I found a different job opportunity in another field. The staff at this company were very easy to deal with getting my refund back. I can’t speak to the course because I didn’t take it, but the people at the North American TEFL Academy are nice.
The course content was surprisingly thought-provoking. There was something was I would not have considered until possibly after having a few years of teaching experience, but otherwise learned in this course.
Besides that, the course is pretty basic. I let you work at your own speed and doesn’t really hold her hand. But I did have a question and I contacted them by email and they responded the next day. Can’t complain about much.
