At ITTT we provide a range of course options that lead to TEFL certification, however, our 120-hour online TEFL certification course is our most popular as it offers convenience, flexibility, and great value for money. If you like the idea of studying independently from home or while traveling from place to place, this could be the perfect course for you. International employers of English language teachers are also fans of this option as it involves a depth of study that comfortably covers all the basic skills they expect from a first-time EFL teacher. As it is such a popular course, there are several different ways of completing it, whether individually or alongside other courses.
