In Response To: Re: How well regarded is TEFL-Institute.com? (spiral78)

I agree with Spiral's statements. The idea of a school placing anyone anywhere is a bit shifty. If you do find work/get employed it will be with the impression you make with the hiring school. So unless this course actually has language schools all over Europe where they can place you, it won't happen.

Your success will be based on your interview and demo lessons.

Who knows though, they might have something or do something that I am unaware of. However, as an owner of a TEFL course in Prague the idea us being able to simply call up schools in surrounding countries and 'placing' graduates in them seems over the top.

Still though, for the sake of argument, let's give this school the benefit of the doubt. Get in contact with their last couple of courses and connect with their graduates. If the school is doing what they say they can do, they will showcase their grads. If things are working out and people are finding jobs, you'll know.

My opinion - I don't think they have the ability to do what they say.
