The course itself is great if you've never taught before and are looking to dive in head first. It includes a packed program that addresses both the theoretical and practical elements of teaching. Instructors draw on their own personal experiences in the classroom and are happy to answer questions. 10/10
I fell in love with teaching thanks to my time completing the TEFL training! I proceeded to teach English not only overseas but also back in Canada to people of all ages from all around the world. I'm planning on returning to school this fall to complete my graduate degree so that I can continue my career in education.
