Hi, I hav been teaching at an elementary school for about 3 and a half years.  I want to get my tesol certification. If anyone have done this, let me know.
I went to couple of sites for the tesol certification. I called 3 places and they said that I have to do a program called the foundation program.
If anyone has doen the online tesol certificate program, let me know
thank you

I have done a 100 hour online TESOL certification course.  This certification is accepted by Korean public schools.   There are also 150 hour courses available, which some jobs in other countries require.  Some jobs also require courses with a certain amount of real classroom observation.

The program I used was ITTT.  Their website is:

There are some other sites out there that are probably just as good.

The online courses in TESOL are good, but unfortunately they are not accepted by many countries. A great deal of countries stipulate that you must have had classroom experience within your course, regardless of the teaching experience which you may have had. The most internationally renowned course is CELTA, and is held in high esteem. Apparently, it is now possible to do part of this course online in various countries including Korea (Seoul). Please see the link below.

I looked at the sites and is TEFL same as TESOL?  What is the difference between CELTA and TESOL?
Thank you

Locked. 

There are several lengthy threads about online certifications.  Search the website before posting several redundant topics.
In Korea from 2005 - 2010, not in Korea now.  Please contact an active moderator for quick answers to your questions.
