For a couple of years, I have thought that I would want to teach in another country. I waited, though, because 1) I am in school working on completing two bachelor’s degrees in May 2023, and 2) I didn’t want to be sure of anything until I would visit a country and made my decision then. This past summer though, I had the amazing opportunity to study abroad in South Korea. I had spent some time simply as a tourist, and then some time as a student. Within three days, I just knew I wanted to live here. I had met new people, and teaching them common English phrases and knowledge was something I thoroughly enjoyed doing and I could see myself spreading my knowledge to people who want to learn! Being inspired, I began my journey searching for TEFL programs, and I wanted to make sure it was authentic and reputable, but not one that would break my wallet as a college student. I came across MyTEFL Academy while researching one night, and I read amazing reviews about it, so I decided to give it a try and I am very happy I did.

This 120-hour course was very instructive and gave me an insight into how and what teachers go through on a daily. It was very informative, and I enjoyed how I got to learn the teacher’s point of view, as well as the students’ point of view. Sure, I’ve learned about the grammar techniques that were taught in this course for years, but it was a nice refresher and I love that I can use it as a reference for life. My favorite part was that I had a personal library and tutor if I ever needed help. MyTEFL Academy has many resources that are in the palm of my hand, and I really enjoy that aspect. If I have a friend who wants to follow in similar footsteps, I will definitely recommend this program to them and tell them all the benefits of what MyTEFL Academy provides. I am so happy I chose this program in particular, and I hope that I can use the tools that were provided to me for my potential career as a foreign language teacher in the future!

Good course for a self-starter and learner. The modules were logically ordered and separated. The exams sometimes focused on specific information that I believe isn’t necessarily related to teaching (e.g. which online programs require a bachelor’s degree). Requires a lot of reading which was fine for me but may not be for someone who is more inclined to listening or participating. I have some experience with teaching ESL classes before so felt like I was well prepared with additional information at the end of the course.

Overall easy to use with a lot of information.

“I got a bachelor degree in English Teaching in Viet Nam and have been an English teacher for 6 years there. I just moved to the US in May this year and wanted to get an online teaching certificate to apply for international online teaching. One of my friends who had taken the course and is also a teacher in Viet Nam now recommended this course to me with the comment: “Highly recommend this course. Easy and useful”. And it is! The course covers almost all of teaching aspects that a teacher should know. Furthermore, it provides you with some websites and links for online teaching that you can apply to, which is fantastic. Besides, you can donate to “Little Footprints Big Steps” that has reached thousands of vulnerable children and families through your enrollment in MyTEFL (through their outstanding Giving Back Program).”

I have just completed the 140-hr MyTEFL course with the added online course guidance and it was incredibly helpful. I didn’t have any prior teaching experience but I had already found students that wanted a native speaking teacher – so completing the course alongside practical teaching experience was an amazing chance to practically apply the detailed information from the course in real teaching settings. The detail and structure aligned so well with the practical requirements of teaching actual students that it was incredibly motivating to continue the course without getting bored. The quizzes at the end of each unit are also very well designed and really force you to make note of key details or you will lose points.

The grammar section was particularly great as it gave very detailed walk-throughs of how to teach various aspects of grammar points.

The online-course section made some excellent points that I had not thought of, that I implemented with my online students and made my life much easier.

Overall, if you are looking for a good-value course and do not need in-person practice teaching as a component, then I highly recommend this course to supplement any in-person or online teaching/tutoring you may pursue in the future.

I just completed my TEFL course and it was phenomenal. I personally enjoyed it for the fact that you can do it at your own pace. For someone who works over 60+ hrs a week it makes it so much easier to complete the course, and they give you a significant amount of time to complete it. At the end of each content comes quizzes or exam which makes it very practical.

I would recommend doing the TEFL online to anyone especially through myTEFL, you have tutors that can help you around the clock which makes it even more easier to succeed.

I was very impressed with myTEFL course I just finished. I have a Masters in Teaching Elementary Education along with an English Language Learning certificate from a major university. I felt I was more prepared for any kind of classroom after taking the myTEFL course. The material is straight forward and very thorough in regards to best teaching practices along with many examples of exercises you can use. My experience in an elementary classroom showed me that even native language speakers have difficulty in grammar rules and the progressive approach shown in the myTEFL course was outstanding in following concepts and giving practice to any who are learning the English language. It is really laid out well for learning on-line and is a lot of useful and necessary information for teachers. The myTEFL staff are quick to respond to emails and very supportive. I really enjoyed my class and took many notes so I don’t forget the value of this class.

The best TEFL content!!! It’s very affordable compared to the other websites. The website is easy to navigate and the course has excellent teaching material that can be completed at its own pace. Quizzes are given on the reading material to make sure you are on track and understand the material. My favorite thing about MyTefl is that the course gave examples for different cultures around the world. They even have job assistance to help you obtain a job abroad or an internship. If you ever need assistance with the course they also have someone available to help. I’m so glad I choose to go with MyTefl!

I enjoyed doing the TEFL course. It was easy to follow and self-paced. It’s also easy to contact the team whenever I have questions. I also love that they provide an ample amount of examples throughout the course which also showed the differences of learners in different cultures. Just a minor feedback, I hope they can update some parts in the lessons like the new technology and ICTs available nowadays that can be used in teaching like Google Classroom or Zoom.

This course has been quite a journey in so many ways. While undertaking it I was pleasantly surprised to find an incrementally and logically advancing challenge to the things I thought I already knew but infact did not fully appreciate. The program has not only afforded me an opportunity for confidence building and personal development but a refinement and growth in my linguistic expression and a more acute understanding of the language.

I thoroughly recommend this program to anyone who wishes to undertake it knowing that It will not only broaden a mechanical understanding of the language but it will present an opportunity of progress within their chosen field.
