about TESOL site
« on: August 08, 2011, 08:09:49 am »
I went to and it has so many programs. It states 100 hours with support. and without support.
Since Imy first language is English, I do not need the support. If you do the support, you will have an assistant helping you. Is that correct?
Don 't know wha site to go through. There are so many sites.
I went to
Is TEFL same as TESOL?

You have about 4-5 different threads all revolving around a similar topic. Why don't you post your questions in those threads instead of continuously creating new ones?

If English is your first language like you claim, you could have answered all of these questions in a few seconds using a website called Google.

Most online courses give you the option of choosing to do it alone, or with "support," like you mentioned. If you want to do it alone, it's cheaper, but you aren't allowed to email anybody from the website to ask questions. If you want to ask questions about homework assignments, etc, that's what the tutor/teacher/support is for.

TEFL = This applies to teaching in Korea. You are teaching English to people in a non-English speaking country. That means English isn't going to be their primary language, they will probably not live in an English speaking country.

TESOL = If you were in America teaching English to a Korean, that's what this is. This is for immigrants who are now in an English speaking country.

What's different about them? Don't even bother thinking about it, just consider them the same thing. You will not get preferential treatment for having one over the other.

In Korea the prestige of the paper does not matter. So, what course should you use? The cheapest you can find. That's the answer. is cheap, and you can save even more money ($20) if you have a coupon from footprints recruiting. So if you are a member of footprints recruiting, or sign up to be a member, look around on their website and use that form to save extra money. Cost for our 100-hour online TEFL Certification Course without Tutor Support: US$ 190.

Stop posting redundant threads, and use the ones on the same topic already out there. 
In Korea from 2005 - 2010, not in Korea now.  Please contact an active moderator for quick answers to your questions.
