    Our online TESOL courses do not include a teaching practicum. We, however, offer you the opportunity to arrange your own practicum. Your tutor will then evaluate this. We´ll send you a separate certificate once you have completed this component. This is not the same as observed teaching practice and you will not be observed or assessed by a trainer. We give the Teaching Practice Certificate free with all our online TESOL courses.

Did I choose the right TEFL College out of 1000s

  • Completed the course in August 2018

A resounding 'YES'!

With much trepidation, and horror stories about scams, I spent two months searching online for a TEFL/TESOL course that would equip me with more than just a certificate. Eventually I short-listed four, and checked their credentials with the relevant bodies, and settled on TEFL College Masters 300 hr course. I liked their courses, with Electives, library, online feeds, etc, and their 20 hour Practicum, and logo! The course was also on Special by the time I enrolled so I got excellence all round!

The support from my tutor (same throughout) was immediate; marking of my assignments prompt; constructive and guiding criticism on various points, always motivating. Big A for this College.

The help I received from my trainer (Kurtis Fettell) was very good. Especially concerning my lesson planning assignment. His feedback was to the point and practical. I also found the tests and online site very user friendly. I would definitely recommend this course to others. I did the 150 hour Course
