Frequently Asked Questions

What's the tutor support like?
Throughout the course you have to complete a number of written assignments on which you will receive feedback from an experience teacher trainer.
Are the videos boring lectures of someone reading from powerpoint slides?
Some of them are, but most are videos of teachers teaching actual students. This will give you an idea of what it's actually to teach overseas, and prepare you for the challenges new teachers face.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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!
