I was told about myTEFL by an acquaintance who had used & like it. The course (120 Hours) was clearly designed by someone, or rather a group of ‘someones’, with both knowledge of linguistics & teaching experience. You might think this goes without saying, but then we all know there is no shortage of people on the net trying to make a quick buck off a naive, aspiring English teacher. Let me assure you that with myTEFL this is not the case.

The lesson modules are arranged in such a way as to introduce new material while reinforcing the old, which is itself a lesson in teaching. The pacing was good in that no one lesson seemed too long or too short, although certainly some material may take a while (e.g. phonetic transcription) for newcomers to get the hang of. The writing of lessons itself was coherent, efficient, & uniformly grammatical.

As for weaknesses, they were few & negligible. I don’t consider myself a master-class grammarian, but there was one definite example of incorrectness (lesson 85 has a ‘predicate noun’ labeled as an ‘indirect object’). Also, to someone with a background in language, some of their phraseology will need to be learned because it differs from the usual (e.g. ‘adjective noun’ or something like it is used in place of ‘apposite noun/noun adjunct’). Keep in mind that the terms they use are for the teaching of English, and it’s never beneficial to get bogged down in sophisticated nomenclature, not even with native speakers.

All in all it was entirely worth the time and money. Give it a go.

MyTefl offers an amazing course! The staff is informative quick to respond to questions. The program layout is intuitive and easy to navigate. The material is presented in an organized fashion which makes it easy to digest. I liked moving through the course at my own pace. Additionally, I liked the quizzes after each lesson because they helped me retain more information. This course touches on all the basics and more to prepare you for teaching English. I really like how in-depth this course goes into how to manage unforeseen challenges in the classroom. It provides a solid overview of what to expect and how to handle different situations from class size to available materials. The only con I can think of is I would like to have access to the program resources for a longer period than 180 after finishing the program. Otherwise, I feel this course gave me the best value for my money and the best foundation for my teaching career. I highly recommend this course!

This was honestly one of the best decisions I have ever made! I have learned so much from taking the 120hour course and there are so many resources. I also applied for a job through TEFL and they are quick to respond and help. The lasting guidance that is offered with taking this course is phenomenal and I can’t wait to put what I have learned to use!

I had been researching different TEFL certification programs before a friend recommended myTEFL. I was instantly drawn to their easy to maneuver website and impressed by the variety of affordable courses offered. I personally enrolled in the 120 Hour Comprehensive course and was not disappointed! The course is well structured with the content being organized into logical modules. Also, the course goes above and beyond covering how to teach English language skills as it also covers material relevant to teaching in general such as classroom management, curriculum planning, testing strategies, and more! I only wish that feedback had been provided upon finishing examinations, but lack of feedback was likely due to taking the course entirely online. Regardless, I completed the course not only feeling prepared to teach English, but ready to effectively lead a class as well. Aside from course content, myTEFL also offers many valuable resources to their students including a library full of classroom resources, tutor assistance, and job assistance making them truly a one-stop-shop! I would highly recommend myTEFL to anyone looking to start their journey in teaching English.

The 120-hour myTEFL course was excellent and easy to complete. The course covers everything from what typical TEFL jobs look like in various countries to classroom management. It reviews all parts of syntax and has a very extensive library of resources with templates for lesson plans and exams. It includes website suggestions for additional lesson helps and whenever I had a question, someone responded within a day. I love how they quizzed me after most lessons and provide correct answers for those I missed. I was able to complete the course in six weeks but could have finished much quicker if I wanted to. I love the flexibility and options to study—I often worked on the course while in transit on my phone. (The website looks the same on my iPhone as it does on my desktop Mac.) I feel prepared to teach and know I have the resources I’ll need to be successful thanks to myTEFL! I highly recommend myTEFL to anyone interested in earning their TEFL certificate.

“I researched several online TEFL certification programs and decided to enroll at myTEFL.com. This proved to be a wise choice! From the course outline, format, and layout to the depth and breadth of each chapter’s content which is presented logically and contains the necessary level of detail to inform the topic, myTEFL.com trains and successfully prepares students for the demands of an online and in-person EFL classroom.” (Submitted by: L.

Overall, my experience with myTEFL was great. I completed the course in about 1.5 months, with time to review all the course content that was available to me. They also give you some time after the completion to have access to the courses. There is a lot of review on grammar and the teaching of grammar, which was difficult for me as I don’t remember a lot of the basics from high school. However, the review and take away were fantastic and very detailed. The test questions did get a little tricky as the grammar points on nouns, pronouns, etc were discussed. There was also a lot of tips on how to teach overall using the PPP method. If you have no experience with teaching or tutoring, like me, it will be your go-to when teaching a new class. It was a great course that I enjoyed taking. Again, the tests get a little tricky sometimes, but if you take good notes, you will be ready to teach any class. I have not tried the job assistance yet, so I will give that a 4/5

After a lot of time spent researching into a variety of online TEFL courses, I decided to try out myTEFL and I can honestly say I’m glad I did. The UI is super clean and straight forward. I found the course content along with the quizzes helped me feel more confident in my ability to teach English and had just the right amount of challenge. It’s also awesome that we can review courses after finishing and also the job search assistance. One of the biggest benefits is the custome4 service. The agents are some of the friendliest, professional and helpful individuals I’ve spoken to in the online cs chat industry. I highly recommend MyTEFL to anyone regardless your educational/skill background.

I loved studying with MyTefl-!! The course was easy to understand and provided a lot of helpful information, not only on the English elements that need to be covered while teaching English, but also on how to manage a classroom well – the course helps the teacher prepare for real life experiences in the classroom. They provided a lot of online resources and other helpful handout resources in their website too. One thing I disagreed with was the recommendation of wikipedia as good resource – it’s unreliable so I wouldn’t recommend it to my students. Overall, I am so glad I studied with MyTefl and that I was able to get my TEFL certificate online.
