Teach English in Spain with Accredited TEFL / TESOL Courses from Intesol Spain

Hi I am interested in teaching English in non English speaking countries.

Just looking on the internet I came across this site. I am always wary of courses that seem too good to be true, can anyone tell me if this is a legit course and if the qualification received is enough to teach English abroad.

Thanks. :cool:

Under "contact us", there is an email and phone number. All you can hope to do is cover your bases in as many ways as possible. They alert you to possible fraudulent organizations, Bobrock so question them personally on the phone and see what guarantees you can get.

Going to Spain for a course is obviously an expensive, though awfully nice way to get a TESOL. There are many legit ones in England, why not start there seeing as how you only said you wanted to teach abroad?

Good luck!

Don't have the foggiest, Bobrock, sitting way across the pond as I do. I'm sure some of the Brits on the forum could be of some assistance though. I'd just call the TESOL/TEFL people, or do a google on it. You should get a lot of hits.

There are quite a few good courses both online and onsite to choose from.

You could start by taking a look at TEFLWatch.org. This is a site where TESL/TEFL courses and course providers are independently reviewed and rated.

I took an INTESOL course on Crete and it was well worth it. the tutor was fantastic and extremely knowledgeable. Go for it!
