Frequently Asked Questions
- What are the requirements to take this course and teach English abroad or online?
Our online TEFL course is open for enrollment and completion for anyone who is fluent in English and would like to learn the skills and receive a qualification to teach English as a foreign language.
With that being said, it's important to note that a completed Bachelors degree (in any subject) is required by many countries to legally work. Some, countries, such as Cambodia, do not require a degree.
Likewise, some online teaching companies require a degree but there are also those that do not.
Additionally, many countries designate certain nationalities as "Native English Speakers" or NESs as those who have a passport from either the United States of America, United Kingdom, Canada, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand or South Africa and NESs are preferred by many (and required by some) governments and schools.
For non native speakers we recommend an IELTS band 8 or C1 level or equivalent to have a high enough level of English to complete this course.
- How will I be assessed in this course?
The course assessment compromises of completing online quizzes, submitting written assignments, submitting short videos and submitting completed lesson plans.
- Do you offer a money-back guarantee?
Yes! We're confident our course is of the highest quality. If you are not satisfied with the course, as long as you let us know within the first 30 days (and haven't progressed through more than 50% of the content), we'll send you a full refund.
- Will you post my certificate to me?
Yes, we include free shipping of your certificate to wherever you are in the world via regular mail. You'll also receive a scanned copy shortly after course completion. You can opt for expedited shipping of your hard-copy for an additional fee depending on what country you are in.
- Can my certificate be used for a working visa?
Your certificate can be used to obtain a working visa in countries like Vietnam and China that require a TEFL as part of your application for a work permit / visa. In these countries all your documents, including your TEFL, need to be authenticated which is not included in the cost of the course. Instructions on how to complete this process are included in the course.
