Can anyone reccommend a good company and any advice. I read that I should do the 100 hour course. I work full-time so I am looking to do this online.
Should I start the program prior to going to Japan or wait and get my TEFL Certificate in Japan?
I would appreciate any advice from people who have gotten their certificate already.
I did mine online with Bridge-Linguatec, but It was a few years ago, so I'm not sure how many hours it was, but I think it was a good program and I think it is reputable, but I'm not positive.
One thing to note, though, four years after I completed the program I contacted them to see if I could access the course information again and they searched and searched and had no record of me. Hopefully that was just a fluke and at least I have my certificate/diploma of completion. Just a heads up.
Hope this helps.
