Q:

as i have just read above in response to adrea's question. .. If i took the course for TESOL in a indoor class room setting and not online, would the certificate then be recognized by Canada? Also, if the certification is not recognized it canada then i assume i could not legally offer my services as a teacher of the enlish language to people that live in my community here in vancouver. And, that would also make me unemployable most places in canada wouldn't it ? does the united states recognize the online course. I ask because when i look at current available job postings, many say they dont recognize certificates from online courses and i wonder why that is.

A:

This is not the case...You might find that were you to want to teach in a public school in Canada or the US, a certification course such as ours would not be sufficient because the school board requires you have a TESOL diploma instead, which takes 2-3 years to complete. If however you are interested in working in a private school or any school abroad, our course will be more than sufficient to give you the qualifications you need to get the job.

Q:

I see that the Groupon expires July 31, 2013. Does this mean the course has to be completed by July 31 or that the deal must be redeemed by that date? Also, how long does a student have to complete all the modules?

William M.  asked on  Jan 31, 2013

A:

You can start the course whenever you want but you have 12 months from the date of activation to complete it. The course is 100% online (no need to leave the comfort of your home) and entirely self-directed meaning it is to be done at you own pace and on your own time. There are no extra courses, exams or costs associated with being certified; the deal price includes everything you need.

Q:

is this a TESOL CANADA approved school?

ANDREA  asked on  Jan 31, 2013

A:

Thank you for your query. TESOLS is not a school in the traditional sense; as is noted on our website our business is mainly providing online curriculum for existing brick and mortar schools. That being said, where we saw the need for TESOL we acted, first in developing the materials, posting them on our incredibly stable Course Management System, and delivering the course to teachers at home and all around the world. In the year that we have been offering TESOL we have been unable to seek recognition in Canada just yet list but we are Institutional members of IATEFL (http://www.iatefl.org/ Membership# 23323) and are on the list of applicant members for accreditation at ACTDEC (http://www.actdec.org.uk/members.shtml). Though we cannot guarantee every employer would accept this, (some might be looking for one focus more than another-they might be looking for country/culture specific training or work experience for instance) we are certain the curriculum follows a standard that would generally be accepted by employers worldwide. You should be fine where ever you go. I hope this addresses your concerns.
