“I found the 120-hour TESOL certificate program challenging and rewarding. This course allowed me to gain a proper understanding of the concepts and methods that work in the ESL classroom. This TESOL course helped me to better organize my classes and ultimately benefit my students”.
The lesson planning assignments and reflection essays challenged me to think about what I would actually do if I were in a classroom, making the learning experience all that more experiential. The online course prepared me really well for the Practicum and my tutor provided me with invaluable support as he shared his own personal perspective on teaching and how he structures his lessons.
This course was a pleasure to complete. The content and materials are thoroughly organized and presented, and the feedback from the instructors was a huge help. I currently live and work in Germany, and the certificate I obtained from Ontesol has made a huge impact on the types of positions I’ve been considered for. I am still completing an integration course for citizenship, but once that’s completed I expect to be working full time with a local language school or university.
My 120-hours OnTESOL course was an effective, efficient, and high-quality expenditure of my time and money. My instructor was easy to communicate with, responsive, and provided in-depth feedback that was entirely specific to my work. I appreciated the time and effort that she put into providing me with feedback. Since completing this certificate, I have had steady work as an ESL instructor at various post-secondary institutions in Canada. I have recommended OnTESOL’s program to my friends and will continue to recommend it to anyone who is interested in TESL certification.
I was required to upgrade my TESOL certificate by the director of my previous workplace due to licensing reasons with Languages Canada. At the time I was currently teaching in Vancouver BC, so I did not have the luxury to take time off from work to upgrade by TESOL certificate. I was recommended by Languages Canada to look into OnTesol. At first I was concerned because it was all online however I was totally impressed!! My tutor was awesome and the textbook material was amazing. I printed a hardcopy and keep it as a reference at work. The course was extremely informative and fun. I completed the practicum section as well and found it super interesting to observe other teachers and get a chance to work with a new level in a new environment. I am not tech savvy but since the system is so easy to use I never encountered an issue. Feedback from my TA was excellent and his side notes were amazing. I honestly would have never been able to complete a 120 TESOL course if I had not done it through Ontesol. I would totally recommend this course for anyone in the industry of teaching English.
Ontesol far exceeded my expectations of online education. The course was very rigorous, with plenty of assignments that tested my ability to plan a full lesson. These assignments took me into the classroom so every activity I plan has a communicative purpose.
My tutor sent full explanations on grammar and teaching methods that complemented the material very well and added a very personal touch. After the course, their staff contacted me to guide me with my job search and helped me apply with a couple of companies in China until I got the job. Overall, I give Ontesol 5 stars!
