In Response To: Re: ESL/EFL/TESL/TESOL programs (Gab)

The 250-hour TESOL Diploma by Ontesol is recognized by TESL Canada on completion of a 20-hour Practicum. It's more comprehensive than CELTA, Trinity TESOL, SIT TESOL or any 4-week course and it's actually an extended version of the 5-week Trinity course offered by Coventry House International (Their parent organization) in Toronto.

I agree that the shorter courses are not useful for a career, but you can get a job in Asia or Latin America without a problem. I started with their 100-hour course and then upgraded to the 250-hour one.

My comment was specific to Ontesol's on-line course component and not about the program's content nor its recognition by TESL Canada. An Ontesol diploma may be fine for Asia and Latin America, but it's likely to shut out much of the lucrative Arabian Gulf which does not accept on-line anything whether in a university degree program or a TEFL qualification. Many employers/recruiters make that clear in their job ads, and it may come up during the interview and/or on the job application.
