Just today, one of our New York graduates wrote the following e-mail to us:
Thank you for sending the letters so quickly. They were perfect. I have left you a review in kind.
One small order of business:
Our EPIK coordinator has informed us that we need to prove the 120 hour TEFL certification program was in class and not online. This is a new requirement. If the Certificate does not explicitly state "in class" then they will want this additional letter.
Could you please send each of us another signed letter confirming that all 120 hours were in-class hours?
EPIK is the public school program of South Korea. Teachers earn a TEFL salary that allows them to save $16,000 per year if they live modestly. In addition, they enjoy a free apartment and airfare together with a completion bonus payment, if they finish their TEFL contract.
We could go on and on. With those few examples, you are able now to see the incredible value of an on-site TEFL certification program. It changes people’s life for the better. It gives them a purpose in life. It’s a sure-fire road map to great TEFL employment opportunities. Yes, it’s not a $100 on-line TEFL certificate program which you can complete from your bed at home. You have to invest more. What you get, however, is so much more. It’s what everybody really wants: a well-paid job with benefits, vacation and health insurance, and, most importantly, time to enjoy the fruits of your work. And this all is so much that a program price of below $2,000 is actually a huge bargain.
And finally, if you would like to become certified to teach English, talk to us and let’s help you travel the road towards such an employment you really desire for you and your family (if you are married). There is not a single reason for fear of the unknown because the worst that could happen to you is that you will improve your current living standard. Wishing for it is not making a change in your life, doing is what actually matters. So go for it. Get started now. Our e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org.
