I found the course work challenging and very interesting. I feel I learned a great deal about teaching Business English with an EFL focus. The materials that I accessed and those I created will be of immense value to me with my students.

Thank you for putting together a coherent and educational course. It really made me think about a variety of elements and characteristics that an EFL teacher should have.

  • Don't believe all the hype that's associated with CELTA and Trinity certification courses. My friend spent £2000 on his CELTA course while I spent $400 on a hybrid TEFL course, which was mostly online but included 20 hours of teaching practice, and we both have the same salary, benefits and working conditions in Japan! I'm quite satisfied with the deal I found on TEFL Source, definitely worth a look if you're planning on getting certified.S. Hyeong
  • Overall I'm quite satisfied with my experience with TEFL Source. They're not the end providers of the courses but they do offer lots of useful information, more than other sites I was checking, and their staff was quick to respond to my onslaught of questions! Also saved some money on the course I wanted which was good for my wallet :) Anton G.
  • I stumbled upon TEFL Source while I was researching the EPIK teaching program in South Korea. I didn't realize there were so many course types and companies out there. TEFL Source made it easy to browse through the different programs, although many aspects of the programs are comparable, and find a suitable course that included teaching practice. I'd tell you I'd use them again but I doubt I'll need another TEFL certification. All in all, a happy customer. Jenny Bae
