Online TEFL Certificate Vs Onsite TEFL Certificate

GLOBAL Training Academy has expanded the scope of it’s signature TEFL Certificate course by making it available online as well as onsite. People interested in aspiring in pursuing a ESL career can now do so from the comfort of their homes. The Online TEFL Certificate course is thus accessible by a larger number of people now and the online course has as much value and recognition is the onsite course.

Online TEFL Certificate Vs Onsite TEFL Certificate

There is no such marked difference between an online TEFL course and onsite TEFL course. There are positive and negative sides of booth these courses and a candidate should take into consideration both before making a choice. The pro and cons of online and onsite TEFL course is given below:

  • The online courses are much cheaper than onsite course. The candidates will not have to travel outside which will save them the cost of traveling and staying outside their home. For an online course the teachers will just need a good Internet connection and a computer.
  • Most people have an idea that the onsite courses are better than online courses. But it is not true as GLOBAL Training Academy has at its disposal a very elaborate and scientific online TEFL course. The course is designed by our developers in such a way that the teachers hardly feel the difference with an onsite course.
  • The live video lectures, talking options with the tutors on Skype and also assistance on chat hardly makes the online course of GLOBAL Training Academy less than its onsite counterpart.
  • Another most significant positive point about online TESOL course is that the teachers can easily do the course in the convenience of their home without disrupting their daily professional or personal commitments.
  • In the onsite course there is a three weeks or four weeks time period where as the trainees of the online TESOL course can take up to four to five months time.
  • The benefit which, the trainees get while doing a TEFL course onsite is that they get a chance of teaching practice. But GLOBAL Training Academy through its course curriculum makes sure that this deficit is not felt by the online students. The online students of GLOBAL Training Academy are very comfortable after taking up an ESL job.


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.
