ITA Chicago TEFL course - 5 stars!

I highly recommend the International TEFL Academy if you are looking to get certified to teach English abroad. I met some AMAZING people, learned a lot, and ended up landing great jobs once I moved to my desired country. I travel, I teach, and I am so happy where ITA has brought me.

100% recommend this course

I genuinely loved my ITA experience. Everyone who helped me was so kind and patient, always willing to answer all of my questions. The course that I took was a lot of work but none of it was useless. I learned a lot more about the English language and how to accurately explain it to other people. I felt prepared for the teaching experience I would have in the future. This course taught me the necessary skills and also showed me that I was fully capable. It has also provided me with a lot of opportunities. I know that I have many options around the world and a trusted network of people from all different cultures and backgrounds that are available to me because of ITA. Enrolling in the Chicago course was one of the best and most fruitful choices I’ve made! Thanks ITA!!
