I browsed many courses online, but I had great interaction with the staff at ITA, who were willing to schedule Skype calls with me as I was currently overseas when I was considering earning a TEFL certificate in addition to my teaching certificate. Many of the lesson plan techniques that were emphasized during the length of the course are currently in place in my language institute where I work.

My TEFL training has been incredibly helpful for my job. Before taking the TEFL class, I had absolutely no classroom experience. The course gave me a great background and understanding of how to teach and manage a classroom. Once I started at my job, I had training with that company and they use the same methodology that was presented in the TEFL course. Obviously, teaching is a job where you need classroom experience and the TEFL course prepared me as much as possible.

Ecuador is a fantastic place to teach English. There is so much diversity to see in this little country, and almost every place can be accessed in a weekend trip. The people are warm and welcoming, and the support of other expats is readily available through online and personal networks. Just be prepared for an unstable legal and government system and for some things to be much more expensive than at home.
