GTA - Online TEFL Course ReviewI found the course content to be useful and appropriate. The online trainers were competent and professional and I have found confidence after completing the course. The course exceeded and met my expectation level. I will recommend the course to my friend. The best thing that I found in the course was that the phases were organized and very well divided but I found that the video sound was not loud and clear. I completed the course quickly and it was well covered.
