TEFL stands for Teaching English as a Foreign Language, while TESOL stands for Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages. The subtle difference here is that TEFL is aimed for teachers seeking to teach to students in a country where the primary language is not English, while TESOL is more focused on teaching English to students who are non-native English speakers living in an English speaking country.

After successful completion of this course, your certificate from TEFL HERO will state that you are certified in TEFL and TESOL. This means you can apply to jobs seeking TEFL or TESOL certified teachers!

In the unfortunate event that you are not happy with your course, we do offer a 7-day money back guarantee if you meet the following conditions: the purchase was made directly from our site within 7 days of emailing us at hello@teflhero.com for a refund and your TEFL certificate had not been issued in your account.

We also offer a 15-day money back guarantee if the following conditions are met: the purchase was made directly from our site within 15 days of emailing us for a refund, your TEFL certificate had not been issued in your account, and less than 20% of the course has been completed. 

Definitely not! This TEFL certificate remains valid for life. Pretty good investment, huh? 

This only TEFL certification is recognized and certified worldwide. Do note, however, that a TEFL certification is just one of the requirements often specified for employment. Some schools may ask for a bachelor’s degree or teaching experience. 

This happens from time-to-time and is no reason to panic, as there is a simple solution. Every student who passes the TEFL Hero 120-Hour TEFL Course has the option to purchase an ACCREDITAT Confirmation Document for a fee of £20. This document is provided by ACCREDITAT, a leading independent and internationally-recognized accrediting body, and simply confirms that you completed the TEFL Hero course on a specific date. Many students apply for this additional certificate, but it’s not compulsory. You can find information about this additional ACCREDITAT Confirmation Document at https://www.accreditat.com/tefl-tesol-students/register-with-us.html.

Once you pass your final examination, you will receive a digital copy of your TEFL certificate immediately. From there, you may print out your TEFL certificate from anywhere in the world! For a more formal touch, we recommend printing onto a quality cardstock paper. 

This certificate will always be accessible via your account page.

At the moment, none of the TEFL Hero courses offer a job guarantee.  In our 120-hour TEFL/TESOL course, we do our best to prepare you for your job search and interviews, but the responsibility of finding a job rests on the student.

This is an in-depth course that offers both theory as well as practical aspects of TEFL. That said, most students complete the full course + examinations within 2-4 weeks. Some students finish in less than 1 week by dedicating at least an hour per day to the lessons. Everyone learns at their own pace, but rest assured, there is no time limit to finish the course and you will have lifetime access to this course and any course updates. 

Students retain lifetime access to all TEFL Hero courses – you’re welcome to come back and review a lesson anytime in the future!

The TEFL industry is a growing and changing environment, so you will also have access to any course updates that we make after you completed it. 

In order to gauge progress, students must pass a quiz at the end of each course section to move onto new content.  Each quiz has 15 multiple choice questions and you must earn at least 70% to pass.  You have as many opportunities as needed to pass this quiz. 

At the end of the course, students must pass a 50-question multiple-choice examination with at least 70% in order to earn a certificate.

The only requirements are that students (1) are older than 16 years of age and (2) have a reasonable competence in English language reading, writing and speaking skills.
