Fantastic and useful !!!
Fantastic course for teachers teaching foreign languages, strategies and resources are well outlined which helped me to improve my teaching in ESL
I find this course really interesting. I have tried to implement all the techniques in my classes and all of them had a great success among my students.
This course gives a person the opportunity to gain more knowledge on the teaching methods and pedagogy. It also motivates teachers to improve classroom teaching
This is a very informative program for those who choose to really dive in. You will get what you put in to it. It is structured in a way to challenge you but to not allow you to fail. This program was free and I couldn't have asked for anything more.
it help me to undestand the students and the teachers to.thanks....i didn t finish yet ...but hope soon.LOVE IT
Basic TEFL Certificate course
I am not a qualified teacher, but with this course I believe I will be able to start teaching English. The sequence in which the modules are arranged, took me from zero knowledge to understanding what teaching is about, especially interacting with the learners.
It is a great course, I really enjoyed and learned. Thank you very much Professor David.
As extra hours per year are required, an on-line course seemed the ideal solution....not that I expected to learn anything! On the contrary, I thoroughly enjoyed the lectures and will use some of the items learned in my classroom.
This is a professional and well prepared teaching course. One can equip with not only knowledge but helpful tools how to deal with learners in classroom.
I found it very detailed yet easy to understand. Very informative and focused allowing me to stay on track and get done in a reasonable time.
I think it is a good course as it includes real-life examples. It is a very practical course and it covers the basics of teaching English as a second language. Very interesting introduction to the teaching languages world!
I would like to thank you for this great course. I learned a lot from it and it has been an honor to take your course. You helped me improve both as person and as teacher.
Complete, easy to follow, feedback, and free.
What more? Gives you plenty to learn and reflect.
Just do it
I would like to recommend this basic TEFL certificate course to all. I do have a master's in education but this was totally different, because teaching languages is not easy..I want to thank you for letting take this opportunity.
great course I recommend it to all of you...
I had been an ESL teacher for almost 6 years now and had tried my best in teaching them. I just did my best for the Lord;creating a good learning environment, preparing visual aids, conducting games, drills and other stuff that could motivate the students.While I was into with each video in this course, I am grateful to every teacher who shared the best of his/her ability to teach the students. It is not actually sharing your knowledge to them but it is actually putting your heart to them. Thanks to Professor David Deubelbeiss for having this TEFL Certificate Course here for free. I did appreciate it. I believe that the good Lord will surely bless the work of your hands. I learned a lot and gained more strength to teach...:)God bless you once again!
I've learned the way to teach and the way to improve myself.
As I am a new teacher teaching children an English, I have learned how to teach and how to develop my teaching skills from this course. I have to say thank you very much to Professor David Deubelbeiss for creating this course that helps a lot of new English language teacher to learn how to teach and how to improve themselves.
I have completed the course, when will i receive my certification. Is this an International recognized certification accredited by a body of some sort? or is it a certification of completing your TEFL course.
Why I Enjoyed this Course
Everything was grouped very well into small sections. The extra readings are also very helpful. The course format is also very easily used, with all lectures on one page, and just a button needed to move on to the next lecture. I really appreciate the work that went into this course! i know it's not easily thrown together, and this has been thought out and planned with students in mind.
Comprehensive with lots of great resources!
A terrific opportunity to receive basic TEFL training and earn a certificate. Extensive supplementary web-based readings and resources are also provided for each covered topic which allow you to further broaden your knowledge and to become familiar with various ideas and viewpoints. These resources also include activity plans, helpful forms, grading rubrics, and links to hundreds MORE resources.
Caters to Motivated, Intelligent, Online Students
I appreciated the pacing of the course that fits individual needs, the rich content with videos and slides with clearly-written teaching points, and many wonderful examples of other teachers and their teaching styles.
I have just completed the basic TEFL certificate course offered by David Deubelbeiss and I am completely impressed. The course was well prepared and has all of the downloadable info a teacher could ever dream of having at their fingertips. I am very glad and pleased to nave taken this course and I highly recommend it to all others in the teaching field. A hearty thanks, David. This is rated easily as a five star course. I can't wait to get my certificate and get started!!!! Thank you.
Great course towards studying a full TESOL/TEFL qualification and for professional development.
Many great resources that covers teachings to all age groups + more! It was also great to refresh my teaching knowledge and learn some new teaching terminology (especially terminology that I never came across while studying towards my teaching qualification). I am qualified in teaching elementary to junior high school levels and currently teaching in early childhood. I was very pleased to find resources for teaching within early childhood (is there any more resources you could recommend?) and am looking forward towards more courses by Prof. David Deubelbeiss. Other than some of the technical glitches, I would highly recommend this course to anyone who is intending on studying towards a full TESOL/TEFL qualification or, looking for further professional development.
I have finished the course! It was great!!!
Hello once again! Today I've finished your wonderful course. There's so much interesting information and great ideas about how I can make my work more rewarding and my students more interested in learning. Of course, I hope to turn to your materials again and again, as they provide a big amount of useful teaching methods and practice. So, THANK YOU A LOT!!!! And wishing you hard-working students brining you stimulus for future research and professional development! Thank you!
I used this course to supplement my studies for the ESOL (English to Speakers of Other Languages) Praxis exam. It was a great resource and prepared me well. I highly recommend this course to anyone looking into a career in TESOL/TEFL/TESL.
This is a Great Course which is worth taking
I completed this course in a very short time because I was so engaged in the lectures that I even did not recognize when I came to the last lecture. I learned a lot. I highly recommend it.
Happy there is such an accessible programme. Inspired idea! I'd definately recommend this course. Thank you Dr David.
The videos alone are not so comprehensive & also there is no grammar content, which is my reasoning for not awarding 5stars.
However, when each segment is accompanied by all the recommended readings and links you have More than enough information and inspiration to grasp each module. I struggled with the wording of some of the Quiz Q's, & when there were multiple choice answers it should stipulate how many Q's we should tick- as I lost marks for this. But the fact that we can repeat the tests was more than generous.
I would thoroughly recommend this course to anyone wanting a good grounding in teaching & classroom strategies.
Worth your time,Thank you
If you are interested in teaching english, this course is a great start. It is perfect if you are unsure before spending alot of money on a certificate then, finding out it isn't for you. There are alot of resources that you can use for a lifetime if you plan a career in TEFL. I had alot of fun doing this course and I feel alot more prepared ,knowing what I am getting myself into.
Thank you for helping me decide what I wanted to pursue for my future and giving me a head start.
Great course, teaches you the fundamentals to succeed!
This course helps me in considering a lot of factors for an effective English teaching. I recommend this to everyone who are looking for a convenient course to take.
Thanks to David!
Very good, thanks a lot for this chance to learn additional things for my teaching.
very good ideas and methods
