Question
Hi, I'm 29, and 3 credits from graduating with BA, but last class isn't offered til 2004! I am interested in an online ad for the school TEFL International. I'm from the US and have taken a cert from New World Teachers (anyone remember them? They vanished). The former is offering an Oct class in Alexandria, Egypt.
1. How's the school's rep? I want REAL training, not just games
2. Anyone's opinion on a US person (female obvi) in Alexandria? I'm not paranoid at all, but don't want to be reckless either.
3. Anyones opinion on Via Lingua? Wanted to go to Crete, but it's filled!
Evil or Very Mad
Many thanks,
La Ondine

I havne't heard very good things about TEFL International. I think that it's a Certificate mill. Go do a real intensive course, on-site rather than online.

Hi Naturegirl,
you are the only reply I've gotten. I restated my question more clearly in an above mssge, but no one seems to be answering it. It's a certified training course in Alexandria, Egypt which follows the international standards, I only saw the web page on line. It is not an online course. Do you know why I seem to be getting no replies? Is it just an Egypt thing or what?
Thanks, Naturegirl, I just wanted someone to share their experiences esp as a woman, with me Confused

Maybe you'll get more replies if you post directly in the Egypt forum.
