Frequently Asked Questions

Which course is best for me?

Goldstart TEFL runs two courses; the CertTESOL and the CertTESOL Plus.

The core content of both courses is the same. The difference is that the CertTESOL Plus has trainer support, so you get assessed and receive feedback from your course trainer.

The CertTESOL is good if you already have some teaching experience because you will know how to manage a classroom. In addition, the CertTESOL will teach you the TESOL and TEFL skills you need to teach English as a foreign language (TEFL) or as a second language (TESOL).

The CertTESOL Plus is good if you have little or no teaching experience. The CertTESOL will teach you the TESOL and TEFL skills you need to teach English as a foreign language (TEFL) or as a second language (TESOL). You also get trainer support. This means that you write assignments for your trainer to assess and comment on. Part of your final course assessment is planning and teaching three practice classes, writing up a report for each, and submitting each report to your trainer for assessment and feedback.

 

 

Are your courses TEFL or TESOL?

You are in luck! Goldstart TEFL courses are dual certification in TESOL and TEFL.

All Goldstart TEFL courses give you dual certification in TESOL and TEFL, so you can apply for all English teaching jobs and work in any classroom.

Who accredits your courses?

Goldstart TEFL is accredited, externally checked and approved by the prestigious British American International TEFL Accreditation Council.

Do I need teaching experience to take a course?

No. Goldstart TEFL runs two courses, the CertTESOL and the CertTESOL Plus. If you have no teaching experience, we recommend the CertTESOL Plus course because it trains you to teach English and includes trainer support. If you have had some teaching experience, we recommend the CertTESOL course because it concentrates on improving your existing teaching skills.

You should be at least 18 years old, you should have completed secondary education up to the age of 18.

If you want a hard copy (printed version) of your certificate, you can buy it after passing the course.
