Chalkboard is i-to-i's TEFL community.
It is currently still in testing phase which could mean you find the odd bug!

I'm very much considering doing a TEFL course but I had a couple of questions before I took the plunge. Firstly, my lack of teaching experience. I've not had a lot of experience with children generally- the biggest thing I've done is helping to organise a sport tournament for Primary School children when I was doing my A Levels. Is it adviseable to get some experience prior to completing TEFL and applying for jobs?
Secondly, I'm very interested in doing one of the combined courses but I'm torn between the 120 hour and the 140 hour. The 140 hour seems better value for money but I wondered if anyone knew how worthwhile the interactive videos were?
Thanks a lot for any info!

I'll be doing the 120hr course myself and have to admit, i haven't give the interactive videos much thought. When are you thinking of doing the course and by when would you like to go over?

Im wondering which course to do aswell!! Its so confusing! I think I will stick with the 120 hour like Essie said but I don't understand the TEFL courses that you can achieve whilst abroad? Which is better to do? Go abroad to complete it or complete it before you travel?

I am considering taking TEFL online certification. I have read some rewies on several websites but some say that if you are considering to enroll this course it might not be good for you because many schools don´t accept this certification. I´d like to ask for some info and advise what to do. I currently teach english in Slovakia I also have MA degree of British and American studies however I´d like to work abrout and try to get some other qualification that would help... Is Tefl online good option for me???
