Commonly Asked Questions

Q:

Once activated, how long do I have to complete the 150 hour course? Also, do you know if I would still need to take the ESOL Praxis to be certified in Maryland? Thanks!

teresa g.  asked on  Jan 28, 2013

A:

You need to check with your district to see if it is, but there is no reason why it shouldn't be if all you need is a certification course. 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:

The program says it is good for international use, but I noticed someone checking for use in Mexico. Can you verify that it can be used internationally?

A:

If you want to teach in a public school in Canada or the US, a certification course such as theirs may not be sufficient because the school board may require you have a TESOL diploma instead, which takes 2-3 years to complete. If you are interested in working in a private school or any school abroad, their course will be more than sufficient to give you the qualifications you need to get the job. As all institutions have their own requirements, it's best to inquire directly with the institution you wish to work for.

Q:

Is there any live instruction? Or opportunities to interact with others in the course? Or is it all pre-recorded lectures? Thanks!

Q:

Is there any prerequisite for this certification?

Angela A.  asked on  Jan 29, 2013

A:

The only admission requirement is a certain level of English proficiency which by the look of your email, you have already demonstrated you possess. You can purchase without worry.

Q:

I called TESOLS and was told that I would have 12 months from purchase (which would be now) to complete the course. I might not activate for a couple of months, so that would leave me with only ten months to complete. Your answer indicates that I would have 12 months from the activation date. Would you please confirm whether I have 12 months from purchase or activation? I am double-checking because of the conflicting answers.

teresa g.  asked on  Jan 28, 2013

A:

The account is active for 12 months from date of purchase.

Q:

What is the difference between this course and the Advanced course also being sold on Groupon?

Lina R.  asked on  Jan 28, 2013

A:

Ours is a 150 hour course as opposed to 120hr offered by the other company. We do not assume prior experience with TESOL.

Q:

I understand that this groupon must be activated within six months. Once activated, how long do I have to complete the 150 hour course? Also, I was under the impression that I had to take the ESOL Praxis to be certified to teach it in Maryland. Would that still be the case after taking the course? Thanks!
