“A great course for the price. I’m too busy for going to a class and need a recognized TESOL certificate for my online teaching work. The company I work for started to require a TESOL recently so I enrolled in one course online but the certificate wasn’t accepted. So after I enrolled here and the certificate was accepted because it has the unique ID number and other details needed.” Victoria Stimpson
