In Response To: Re: Anyone heard of Tesols.com (TESOL Prep Academy (nomad soul)

$69 sounds like a great price. Beware! This Groupon deal is too good to be true.

I paid $800 for a 60 Hour Certificate course from Oxford Seminars in 2005 on the UCLA campus. I figured the course had to be worth the effort since it was being held there. Later I found out that UCLA rents classrooms to any company that is willing to pay! The course was boring and offered me nothing new. I retired from public school teaching in 2007. I am 70 years old. I have a Ph.D. and nine state teaching credentials. I have taught ESL and EFL to children and adults for many years. I continue to read ads for overseas teaching jobs.

There is an age limit of 55 for most of the jobs I've found online. The 60 hour Oxford certificate is worthless. A 120 hour certificate is required.

It is easy to get a job when I am in Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, or Laos. They approach me as I walk down the street. Age doesn't matter when I am in country. Most of those jobs don't pay much of anything at all. I could take one just to meet people and stay busy. The international schools do pay well and have strict age limits.

My daughter has a Master's Degree, teaching experience, and valid state teaching credentials. She is about to begin a month long program in Chaing Mai, Thailand. She will earn a Cambridge Certificate. The price of the course plus room and board is $3,000.
