120/250 Hour Online Course vs CELTA


Your website is probably the most helpful one with respect to English language teaching in Vietnam that I've found yet. I have a question (I know there are lots of similar ones posted all over this site already) about online courses vs the CELTA or Trinity CertTESOL.

I have come across a website (http://www.ontesol.com/) or (This One)that offers a 250 hour online diploma plus 20 hour practicum "in any country" that, they say, "exceeds the standards of the most reputable on-site TESOL courses" and "is more comprehensive than a 4-week CELTA or Trinity CertTESOL course."

Have you heard of this course before? It looks like this certification is recognised in Canada and the UK, but is it known overseas? Would it hold any more clout to do this course than, say a 120 hour online course plus practicum? Could it hold more clout on a resume in Vietnam than a CELTA or CertTESOL?

CELTA is the Best
by: Philip

Yup, CELTA is the best purely because it is accepted as a high level document in any country in the world.

But it can cost up to $4000USD.

If you have chosen your country of work then taking any TEFL course will lead to work, especially if you have a degree.

The better TELF courses guarantee work and can cost as little as $300USD.

If you have the money, then CELTA is the best. If you need to get working in a hurry and are short on cash then
the one I did in Thailand was well worth it.

Nice work
by: Bayard

Here you like to distinguish between 120/250 Hour Online Course vs CELTA. If i you ask my suggestion then i think CELTA is better than rest of all. I like to go with it which is more effective and easy to understand than others. You have chosen good topic for discussion here.

Get your Qualifications in Thailand or Vietnam
by: Philip

Nothing really beats a CELTA or a TRINITY. But there are benefits to doing courses in South-East Asia.

I did mine in Thailand and WOW did it get me into the place and allowed me to meet the people who could get me jobs.

They also do a program in Vietnam and the great part is that they guarantee you a job if your grades are high.
