I completed the 120hr online TEFL course over a 5 week period. A lot of information was condensed into a short period of time and the homework assigned was challenging but made us use our newly learned lesson planning techniques. It was great getting feedback from fellow students as well as our instructor regularly to make sure we were all on the same page.

I would happily recommend this course to anyone who is prepared to work for this certificate.

I thought the CultureRoute online TESOL was incredibly helpful. I have never had any teaching experience before and had made plans to move to South East Asia and teach English, the nearer it got it became rather daunting. When I started the TESOL with CultureRoute I became a lot less worried and started looking forward to my future again.

The course was packed with information that will help many going in to a career teaching English as a foreign language. Having the tutor review your assignments and give helpful advice with examples from their experiences was also a massive help!!

Just only a week after getting my results and passing the CultureRoute TESOL course I got a job teaching English online. All thanks to CultureRoute, I wouldn’t of had a clue what to do in the demo class if it wasn’t for taking this course!

It is a very helpful course that is presented very well by the instructors. They are very helpful and professional in the way they present the course and interact with the students.

I would definitely recommend doing the 120 hour TESOL course!

Like starting anything new, I was nervous to actually starting the TEFL course as I didn’t know what to expect! But right from the beginning, Jon and the rest of the team on the course were so supportive and helpful every step of the way.

What I loved most about this course is that not only do you learn from the course material but most importantly from interacting with each other on the course when providing feedback and suggestions! The assignments set out, enabled me to build an insightful understanding of TEFL, preparing me for the classroom environment.

Overall, I definitely left the course feeling confident and excited to teach in South Korea. Thank you! So, the last thing I can say is go for it!

I loved the structure and the detailed course book. I will be able to refer to it when in South Korea. I enjoyed the discussion forum a lot as one learns a lot from other participants in the course. Also, the lesson plan templates provided, were GREAT. Thank you so much!

I feel much more prepared to teach abroad after taking the 120 Hour Online TESOL course.

The format used within the lesson plans is easy to work with and get involved with the class. I really liked the teacher’s constant interaction and guidance provided to the students, the discussion forums were particularly helpful.

I really enjoyed the class format and that we were all encouraged to interact with each other and help each other progress as future teachers.

It was also very helpful to have the assignments due on Sunday rather than throughout the week, as it would be a shame to have to sacrifice quality of work for the sake of other commitments such as classes or jobs that might take up too much time during the week.

All in all, I thoroughly enjoyed participating in the course; I took so much away from it that will definitely aid me in being the best teacher I can be, and it left me excited to get started!

I liked that we got to introduce ourselves as one of the assignments and how we got templates as a guide for each lesson plan. I also loved the Skype session – it was very helpful and I think it is so important to practice the practical side of teaching and not just the theory.

I liked the website and how easy and simple it was to use. I think majority of our assignments where clear and well explained. I also liked the fact that we did an assignment on classroom management because I think it is important knowledge for every teacher.

I love the forum format and that you’ve got the opportunity to see what your peers are getting up to and coming up with in their lesson plans.

I like that you’ve always got until Sunday regardless of how many assignments the week has – it helped a lot as I work and study full time and it meant I could do my assignments when it best suited me as opposed to having multiple deadlines.
