This is what the education TEFL course industry is like: lies, half-truths and other tactics to get you to buy and not really teach you anything useful at all

This applies to TEFL, TESOL, and even CELTA to some extent.

About 80% of this was previously written as blog posts on this site. I also added a bit and updated it. It's mostly about TEFL courses, but it's also about education.

Some of the topics include:

  • lies about requirements
  • accreditation
  • affiliates
  • reviews
  • the 120 hour lie
  • grammar/theory
  • "internationally recognized" courses
  • beaches
