    Default ESL Teaching Certification

    If there are any prospective teachers that would like to be certified to teach (which is required by many good ESL jobs around the world), they should check out this link to an online certification course. It's inexpensive and pretty well-respected. I got certified, and now I'm teaching in Cuenca, Ecuador.

    Interesting. I expect that many TEFL course providers will take exception to some of the claims made on your site. Certainly we'd be interested to see the statistics behind your claim that the course is the "Industry's Most Recognized Online Certificate & Diploma"!!

    PS I think you need to get a native English speaker to proof read the site.

    Haha - bit of a marketing fail there!

    If anyone out there's thinking of doing an online TEFL course I'd stick to the bigger names like Cactus, i-to-i, Bridge and ICAL.

    In the meantime I'd take Pete's advice and get someone to do a bit of proof-reading!
