The course modules are detailed, informative and easy to comprehend. My experience during the 240 hour Expert TEFL was amazing, I was reminded of what a teacher's role is and how to successfully create a positive learning environment. I learned loads of content in this course and I would love to recommend it to anyone interested in becoming a TEFL certified teacher. However, the only thing I did not like was the fact that upon completion of the course you have multiple certificates, which is not a train smash, but I wish it would just be one certificate for your 240 hour Expert course. Having said that, it's a course work taking, done at your own pace, at the comfort of your home.
