It was a pleasure doing the TEFL-SA course online. The website is well laid out, and the support is good. I really enjoyed doing the 20-hour practical online course after completing the initial 120 hour online course.
The content of the TEFL course itself is very well planed and structured to teach us the art of teaching. The practical course, however, is the highlight of the entire course as fun and interactive methods are used to teach important skills. I am super excited to start my journey as a TEFL teacher.
It was a great experience. The learning process was really efficient and the weekend online class as really good. It gave us a very good insight about teaching on line and being able to prepare and deliver lessons.
Learning about new things and different ways of teaching was really interesting.
