Check our frequently asked questions:

Do I need to speak local languages to teach overseas? 2017-12-15T04:00:34+00:00

Nope! You don’t need to speak Chinese, Thai, Vietnamese or any other language to start teaching English overseas. In fact, in most classrooms it is actively discouraged to use any language other than English.

This is to help immerse students in a full English-speaking environment to help them to learn better.

However, that doesn’t mean you won’t learn the local language while living and teaching overseas.

How old do I need to be to teach English? 2017-12-15T03:52:46+00:00

For most teaching jobs and visa applications you’ll need to be atleast 18 years of age.

After submitting my final assessment, how long does it take to receive my results? 2017-12-30T09:23:39+00:00

Your final course assessment will be marked by one of our experienced ESL tutors and returned to you within 3-5 working days. If you have an urgent request due to a visa application or interview, please contact us to see what can be done.

Is there a time limit for the course? 2017-12-30T09:24:20+00:00

After enrolling you’ll have 90 days to complete your Ultimate 120-Hour TEFL Course.

This is to ensure that our course graduates complete the course with all of the training fresh in their mind, and are ready to start teaching immediately afterwards.

If you do need extra time to complete the course for any reasons, then simply let us know and we’ll help to pause your course, or arrange an extension.

What if I need help during the course? 2017-12-15T03:30:11+00:00

We have live chat support available for a large portion of each day. If you have any questions we can help to explain, and for any issues which can’t be solved over live chat, one of our experienced tutors will follow up with you – usually within a few hours.

How long does it take to complete your TEFL course? 2017-12-15T03:45:25+00:00

Most people complete the course within 4-6 weeks, depending on how much time they have available to study each week.

Can I enroll from outside of the US? 2017-12-15T03:30:33+00:00

Certainly! You can enroll in our course from anywhere in the world. Our course price is listed in US dollars, but can accept payments from almost any local currency – GBP, AUD, NZD, EUR, USD, CNY, JPY, ZAR, AED.

Is this TEFL course accredited? 2017-12-15T03:30:44+00:00

Yes! Our Ultimate 120-Hour TEFL Course is internationally recognized and has been accredited by The World TEFL Accrediting Commission.

This means that our TEFL course content, grading processes and knowledge of the ESL world meet the stringent requirements needed to provide our students with everything they need.

By earning our WTEFLAC accredited TEFL certificate, you’ll be able to let employers know that you’ve taken the time and care to complete a truly reputable course which is recognized around the world.

I get nervous talking in front of people – can I still teach? 2017-12-15T03:56:37+00:00

Talking in front of people can be a challenge which puts some people off from becoming teachers. But it’s surprising how easily this difficulty fades away when you’re actually overseas and starting to teach.

What really helps is having a good lesson plan to guide you through your lesson – 5 minutes at a time, and plenty of fun games and activities that will have your class doing all the talking.

Do I need any experience to teach? 2017-12-15T03:31:31+00:00

Nope! While having teaching experience can help to secure higher salaries, there’s a constant demand for new teachers and employers know that with TEFL training, new teachers can settle in fast.

Can I still teach if i’m not a native speaker? 2017-12-15T03:31:39+00:00

Certainly! While it’s true that some countries only permit native English speakers to gain work visas, there’s plenty of countries which welcome qualified teachers from all nations.

Both native and non-native speakers have their own benefits and challenges when it comes to teaching.

Native speakers have the advantage of being immersed in the language and all its intricacies throughout their life. However, it can be difficult for them to see the English language from an outside perspective.

Similarly, non-native speakers might struggle with some of the finer points and colloquial phrases – however, they have the key advantage of understanding their students more deeply.

Why do you offer just one course? 2017-12-15T03:32:14+00:00

There’s a number of TEFL course providers which advertise 80/100/160/350 hour options and more. But with our highly experienced team of teachers and ESL recruiters, we can tell you that these different length courses are unfortunately created for sales purposes rather than for the benefit of new teachers.

An online course under 120 hours in length can’t provide enough training to be truly useful for new teachers. Similarly, online courses over 120 hours in length are often filled with excess material, worksheets and other content which really offers little additional benefit or value for money.

You can learn an incredible amount from an online course, but there’s a limit to what’s really useful before you need to step into the classroom and put it to use. That’s why we created one single course which provides all the information you need – in one concise package.
