There was some very interesting and useful content, but I felt it had been somewhat 'padded out' to give the illusion of value for money. It would be helpful if there were different levels of the 120-hour course. I am a 44 year-old mother of twins and engineering graduate. I felt some of the information was completely useless to me (such as how to discipline a class/manage young learners/keeping a personal development file etc), but would be helpful to maybe a gap-year student or someone just starting out in this field. I also felt that the feedback on my assignments wasn't particularly personalised. My tutor, Arthur, was prompt in replying to my emails but the feedback he provided had very much an air of "cut and paste" in certain parts. Also, the instructions should be clearer for the assignments. For the TelephoneTeaching Course I chose the option of the "General English Student" profile. This profiles states that : "This student is an adult learner, aged 25. They have been studying English for a couple of years and have been your student for the last 3 months, so you know them quite well. Their level is pre-intermediate. They enjoy watching films and TV programmes in English and are planning on travelling to an English-speaking country in the summer". I wrote my lesson according to that profile but my assignment was rejected initially. I appreciate there may have been mistakes in my lesson plan, but one of the things I was asked to re-do was to provide a description of the student as well as my reasons for choosing the resources I used. Neither of those things were listed as necessary (or to be included) in the brief! So, clearer instructions might help future students get it right first time round. Lastly, I was pleased to be able to purchase my course at a 'discounted' rate, which was 'soon to expire'. The courses seem to be on a permanent discounted rate though, which kind of negates any deal I felt I got. For this reason I would not recommend TEFL.ORG, as it seems like a bit of a rip off 'deal'.
