Will this TEFL Certificate be OK?


Recommended Posts

OK, so I've been teaching ESL in Japan and China for about a million years now (literally) and have never have had the need for a 'TEFL certificate.' I've put another million hours into pedagogy and classroom practice, so I can't imagine it being that hard. 

Now suddenly I need one and the only way I can get one is online. I want one that is cheap, accredited, and will work in Guangzhou (I've already taught there for two years without a 'TEFL certificate' and my FAO is asking me how 'I got away with it!' 

Anyway, does anyone know if this company, sorry, 'school,' is OK? They have three 'campuses' in China though I'd be doing a 120 hour online, all for 220 USD. Anything faster? Just as good? I don't care about putting it in my resume, I just want the rubber stamp. Sorry if I sound cynical- If you've been teaching EFL for over 25 years you might feel it's rather ridiculous too.

Here's the school: ITTT https://www.teflcourse.net/
