Frequently Asked Questions


How does the tuition refund work?
People who successfully complete the course and take a teaching position through Teaching Nomad have the option to apply for a tuition refund upon completion of their 3-month probation period. All refunds are subject to a $15 USD administration fee.
So you're giving away free courses. Why?
Good question. After you have completed your probation period, your employer pays us the cost of your online teacher training course, so we actually still get paid. We then return that money to you and we all benefit. We get paid, you get a job and a free course and the school gets a great teacher! Win-win-win!
Why do I have to take a 120-hour TEFL course?

How long time will it take me to finish this course?
It depends on the individual's ability to learn things online. Most people are able to finish the course within one month. If you're in a rush you may be able to finish it as fast as 1-2 weeks!

Can your certificate be authenticated at the Chinese embassy?

If you require a hard copy that can be arrange as well. Each certificate contains your unique student ID number which employers can use to confirm authenticity.

Do your certificates say "online" on them?

No, the certificate granted specifies the course hours completed. Along with your name and unique student ID number.

What is the difference between TEFL, TESL and TESOL?
TEFL stands for Teaching English as a Foreign Language. The term TEFL is mostly used when English is being taught in a country where it isn't the native language(e.g. teaching English to Chinese people in China). TESL is similar to TEFL and stands for Teaching English as a Second Language. This is where English is being taught to non-native speakers of English in a country where it is the native language (e.g. teaching non-native emigrants in the UK/USA). Finally, TESOL stands for Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages and encompasses both TESL & TEFL. The principles behind TEFL/TESOL are the same, and the training programs are special courses designed for teachers who want to teach English to non-native speakers of English.
I don't have any teaching experience or a degree, can I still take the course?
Of course, our online course does not require you to have any experience or a degree. By taking this course will enhance your chance of getting a teaching job.
