In Response To: 5 Tips for Choosing the Right TEFL Course (Sarah Villanueva)

Er no... With sentences like, "Good courses included 10 hours of teaching practice but only the best course, like...", this site tells you two things. Firstly, its an advertisement, and secondly don't take their course. There is simply no excuse for such shoddy English on the website of an institution offering teacher training.
For the record, the industry standard is: 1. At least 100 hours of face-to-face instruction, 2. At least 6 hours of assessed teaching practice with real students (not peer teaching) and 3. External moderation to ensure quality. This means the Trinity CertTESOL, the Cambridge English CELTA and a couple of others.
Note that, "Does the school offer job placement and job guidance?", or "[trainers that] have travelled the world teaching so that they are able to share their real life experience with you." are not indications of quality. Sheesh!
