I don't know quite where to post this but I was scammed by TEFL institute that is based out of Chicago. Does anyone know anything about this? Did anyone take the course? I took my course in San Jose Costa Rica. Also please take this as a warning to do your research and do NOT take a course with them. They are not accredited and will not give you any kind of certificate. I paid over 2000 dollars for the course. I am now going to take a CELTA course instead because I currently have no credentials due to this scam.

Hi,
Can you tell me the exact name of that org. in Chicago? I ask because a TEFL candidate was observing my college ESL reading classes and told me he was taking a TEFL course based in Chicago yet he had no bachelor's degree and I had to tell him he would not have many job choices without a degree. I wonder why they took his money, knowing is. Confidential, of course
Thank you from a veteran ESL/EFL teacher devoted to helping newbies
