Frequently Asked Questions

There is a lot that can be said about this issue but we will try to address it as brief as we possibly can. First, we need to ask the following questions:
  • Did living in caves prove to be better shelter than manmade homes?
  • Were horse driven buggies better than cars?
  • Was communicating via Telegraph better than the Telephone?
  • Is corresponding via letters/postal mail better than email?
  • Is getting the news via newspapers better than through Television or the Internet?
  • Is searching for information via Encyclopedias better than using the Internet?
Human advancement from their old approaches to new versions have always been opposed by those afraid of change and technology based improvements. There are rumors that schools worldwide do not recognize TEFL type online degrees.
This is almost a completely insignificant proclamation, because presently they only account for less than 1% of all educational establishments worldwide and this is decreasing every day. Online education in general, today is the norm as opposed to the exception. Degrees of all variance and levels are being obtained online, including ones even of higher education caliber and are widely accepted in this global world.
All companies that offer in-house courses also offer online, therefore this debate is moot since they themselves recognize the need for it.
Well-structured TEFL online courses:
  • are by far cheaper
  • do not require traveling
  • are convenient and can be taken at the student’s own pace
  • if the syllabus and site is user-friendly as well as technologically advanced (such as live timed exams), they thus can be completely comparable to in-house.
There are no major differences. They are just referring to a slightly different meaning and thus a different acronym. However, they all refer to the same original acronym and course; TEFL “Teach English as a Foreign Language” CELTA is the original and at one time was the Cadillac of all courses but as teaching abroad has changed, the curriculum for CELTA has not and is now outdated but yet still overpriced..
Yes. In recent years this has become the biggest change in the market as now almost all schools across the board require TEFL certification and that even includes teachers who have a teaching certification in their country of birth because TEFL is a specialization. It is required for both native and non-native speakers. Not only do the schools require it, various countries request this from the schools for VISA and immigration purposes. Therefore, TEFL degrees have become mandatory and this includes even if you have other highly regarded credentials. Additionally many schools will not even consider candidates for their vacant positions who do not have such TEFL type degrees.
Yes. Due to our excellent reputation amongst International Employers, Educational Agencies and Associations for the past 8 years, SeriousTEFL is recognized by employers worldwide including hundreds which directly accept our Certification via our job board and sister site seriousteachers.com
There are several reasons to take our course as opposed to others.
  1. We are the only ones whom offer completely automated courses in the industry. All lessons are programmed which allow you to systematically advance once you complete them, including the mid-term and final exams which are also automated for grading. This makes them the most user friendly TEFL courses in the market.
  2. Our courses are the only ones that will give you practical lessons and strategies that you can actually use in the classroom and not just in theory.
  3. These courses were developed by ESL teachers with over 100 years of combined teaching experience for various levels, ages and countries, including the founders of SeriousTeachers.com. Their wide range of knowledge is embedded in every section of these courses.
  4. Immediate recognition by thousands of schools that advertise with us making job placement inevitable.
  5. Many competitors have accreditation solely through membership based payments which do not include any legitimate oversight nor offer any value when trying to obtain a job.
  6. We are the only company in the industry with an exclusive and authentic job board. Other companies offering job assistance actually just go to other job boards and place them on their board.
  7. Impeccable customer service, after-sales service and troubleshooting.
  8. Unquestionable and authentic student testimonials on our homepage.
Our Certificate program is 60 hours and our Diploma program is 120 hours.
This area is up to each individual teacher. Many schools accept either but some institutions do require over 100 hours as they prefer to see the teacher has been fully trained. It is a good idea to decide which countries and the type of positions you are applying for in order to reach a conclusion in this area. As you can see by examining the study modules and what they include; both courses are very complete. The 60-hour course offers a Certificate and the 120-hour course offers a Diploma. The degree that you receive upon completion will indicate as such. The Certificate course studies all the base modules in order to be prepared to teach ESL. The Diploma course includes the same modules as the Certificate but also covers 6 extra modules and focuses on specific areas such as teaching Business English and ESL for Children. With the Diploma course there is also one additional exam.
Yes. Simultaneously, with your SeriousTEFL registration you have the option of submitting your profile/resume to SeriousTeachers.com in which, you can start applying for all available jobs as well as all employers will examine your resume. We are the most efficient and popular job site in the market.

The price of the 60-hour Certificate course is $185 US.
The price of the 120-hour Diploma course is $245 US.
Upon graduation either degree will be sent out via priority mail.
We offer a variety of online payment systems including Credit Card, PayPal and we also accept Western Union or Bank Wire Transfer.
Access to the course if paid by Credit Card would be within 12 hours. If by Western Union or Bank Wire Transfer, it would be upon receipt of payment. You must inform us via email that the payment has been dispatched.
It will be sent out to you via priority mail upon passing the Final Exam. It usually takes approximately 10 to 20 business days to arrive, depending on the country.
