Although I've been teaching for a while, your course has taught me a lot. I'll be more careful when I time my activities and I won't focus TOO much on grammar. I really appreciated the TEYL part-great tips for children: what to expect from them and being able to understand how much they've learned; and teenagers: how to get them intersted and KEEP them interested throughout the lesson. Thank you!

I have just finished the course and thoroughly enjoyed it. Any questions I have had have been answered very quickly, and I really got the impression I was communicating with a person, as opposed to receiving a standard response. It was very difficult to choose a TESOL course as there are so many available on the internet and it is a daunting task trying to pick one which is professional and credible.
- Samantha Boimare
The course tutor was incredibly prompt while handling my coursework and answered my questions and concerns with respect and clarity. The aftercare has been exceptional too. I contacted the staff for pointers here and there and have always received friendly replies. I would recommend taking the certification courses offered by Global English, because of the course material and the staff.

  • Don't believe all the hype that's associated with CELTA and Trinity certification courses. My friend spent £2000 on his CELTA course while I spent $400 on a hybrid TEFL course, which was mostly online but included 20 hours of teaching practice, and we both have the same salary, benefits and working conditions in Japan! I'm quite satisfied with the deal I found on TEFL Source, definitely worth a look if you're planning on getting certified.S. Hyeong
  • Highly recommend using TEFL Source if you want to get certified to teach English as a foreign language. I'm currently travelling in SE Asia so I wanted a course that I could work on from my ipad. TEFL Source had lots of great options and the prices were more competitive than other places I looked. I can't wait to start teaching now!Jon Sobolewski
  • Overall I'm quite satisfied with my experience with TEFL Source. They're not the end providers of the courses but they do offer lots of useful information, more than other sites I was checking, and their staff was quick to respond to my onslaught of questions! Also saved some money on the course I wanted which was good for my wallet :) Anton G.

Whats the difference?
