8) Won't this be fun if we all just vote for the courses we took and/or the people we work for???

Love to hear from people that have taken more than one Teacher Training course!

BTW, I voted for Other (Global TESOL College), cuz thats who I trained with, and I don't have anything solid to compare it with!

Very Happy

Pls be sure to mention my name when
you enrol at the place I recommended,
so that their appreciation of me can be
expressed whenever I see them again.

I've heard nothing but good things about the CELTA programme, which is administered all over the world. I've considered doing the DELTA by distance, but I think for me, I'll aim at an MA.

I did my Diploma TESOL at Vancouver Community College part time. It's an excellent program, with professional, experienced teacher trainers, a balance of theory and practice, and attracts committed teachers and teachers-to-be.

For anyone interested in taking the TEFL course in Europe I recommend TEFL Worldwide Prague. www.teflworldwideprague.com . The course was fun and informative, provided housing and job guidance...and everyone who stayed on in Prague (including myself)has been working steadily over the past year with great schools and private students. Laughing

I don't think that it's necessary to get the CELTA certificate because it is more expensive and a brand name that most employers don't care about. But, that's just an opinion. Wink

I am happy with the education I received from TEFL Worldwide and I like that the school is friendly and still in contact with its graduates

OK - I'll be "Mr. Controversial".

The best teacher training course is actual classroom experience. i.e. on-the-job training 8)

TEFL Worldwide Prague hands down!

Terry was an amazing instructor and prepared me for any teaching environment! Overall it was a valuable experiene and I think that beacuse it was a continuous 4-week course it really made it easy to grasp all of the concepts and methods of teaching. I had no experience with teaching prior to the course, yet by the end I felt confident to instruct any class size of any skill and ability level.

I am now teaching with one of the largest English teaching schools in Prague and have been working there for over a year now. It all depends on where you want to teach though. However, Prague is a beautiful and magical locale and a great "jumping off" point to teach in other places in Europe which require a year of experience or more.

I am glad to see that everyone here is giving such honest opinions. Why are you all promoting yourself?

Loved Anaheim University, one of the best learning experiences of my life.

I am a vet, but still got tons from it.

Online course, part-time for about 5 months.

David Nunan is your professor, he knows a few things about linguistics.

Popularized task-based learning and student-centred learning.

The course helps you learn, the instructor is great. Best selling textbook author and HK university prof. Very sympathetic.

One of the problems with a course this good is that others you meet in the ESL world don't know as much as you do after you finish the course. A good problem to have.
