    Excellent content

    I took this class as a refresher, as I've been teaching ESL for over 12 years, and felt I needed to get back to the basics. This course was clear, full of interesting video clips, overflowing with additional resources and enjoyable. It is well worth it!

    Very Helpful

    I appreciated the ways that technology can be incorporated into teaching that were demonstrated by the Professor's work. I appreciated the autonomous learning format and the many online resources that were provided. A very nice introduction to TESOL for those considering this for themselves.

    I’m very honored to know and to study this course. It’s very useful and informative. I recommend this to anyone who would like to teach and to those who have taught but don’t have a background about TESOL.

    I’ve learned many things from the course using/reading the videos, audio, presentations, online references, supplementary materials and external resources. I make use of the website links (School of TEFL, English Central and EFL Classroom 2.0) to watch/read the webinars, teacher training presentations, professional development ideas, etc.

    Again thank you very much Prof. David Deubelbeiss.

    Very, very useful and helpful information

    This course was a very good introduction into TESOL teaching. For someone like me who is easing into this field very slowly, this was the perfect thing and I'm so glad I took the course. The material is very easy to follow regardless of how much or how little you know about ESL teaching. I would definitely recommend this course. It was also a reasonable price as well (for those on a budget like me). Excellent course. The material alone is invaluable.

    Great Class!

    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.

    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. 

    Thank you

    Professional Development

    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.

  • by Irwin Vinod, 1 month ago

    Course Review

    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!

    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.

  • by Betche M. Tabilid, 2 months ago

    Quite impressive

    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 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.

  • by LorriAnne Rae Kump, 2 months ago

    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.

  • by Audrey Jamieson, 3 months ago

    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.

    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.

And wishing you hard-working students brining you stimulus for future research and professional development! Thank you!

    Great course!

    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.

  • by Cigdem Dincer, 5 months ago

    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.

  • by Venice Wyatt, 6 months ago

    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.

  • by Brianna Church, 7 months ago

    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.
