In this article, we highlight a few of the main sources for verified feedback of the award-winning TEFL/TESOL certification courses program.
Every online marketplace has its fair share of scams, and its fair share of bad-apple companies, and the Online TEFL/TESOL industry is no different in this respect. Locating trustworthy reviews, written by real customers, should be at the top of your list when considering which Online TEFL/TESOL certification course to take.
Quite a lot of mudslinging takes place within the Online TEFL/TESOL community, perpetuated predominantly by competing Online TEFL/TESOL schools, so it is important to try to differentiate between what has been written by a competing program, with a specific agenda in mind, and what has been written by a real customer, that is leaving genuine feedback of their course experience.
Where are the main sources for verified reviews of the tefl online pro international TEFL/TESOL certification program?
Facebook remains a trusted source for reviews because it is possible to check the footprint of the review. By ‘footprint’ we mean that, within a couple of clicks, it’s possible to see whether the individual behind the account is a real person.
TEFL Online Pro is currently review-rated 5 out of 5 on Facebook.
In addition to this, some of our recent graduates have provided us with their tefl online pro video testimonials:

TEFL Online Pro statement in response to misleading/untrue statements published online by TEFL program competitors.
Two of our business competitors have published malicious, misleading, untrue assertions online regarding the Fully Accredited TEFL Online Pro international TEFL/TESOL certification course program.
TEFL Online Pro is not a legitimate company.
TEFL Online Pro is a fraud/scam.
TEFL Online Pro is the owner of trustedteflreviews.com.
TEFL Online Pro only has reviews on trustedteflreviews.com.
TEFL Online Pro is the owner of acteflc.com.
TEFL Online Pro customer video reviews have been recorded by paid actors.
None of these assertions hold up under scrutiny.
All six assertions are intentionally misleading and untrue, and can easily be disproved.
B.Our response to the assertions.
1.TEFL Online Pro is a legitimate company.
TEFL Online Pro has been a verified business member with Paypal since 2019.
All three TEFL Online Pro certification courses are Fully Accredited and lead to the awarding of the international TEFL/TESOL certificate.
TEFL Online Pro certificates are authenticated worldwide and can be apostilled, legalized, and notarized for all online and overseas teaching jobs and visa applications.
If TEFL Online Pro were not legitimate there would be multiple (verified) complaints made online by our graduates, Paypal would not continue to partner with us, and ACTEFLC would have revoked our Fully Accredited status.
2.TEFL Online Pro is not a fraud/scam.
None of our graduates or worldwide education partners consider us a fraud or scam.
Our graduates teach online and on-site in every country in the world where there is a teaching English job market. Our verified customer reviews back up these facts.
Paypal would not continue to partner with us if we were a fraud or scam, there would be multiple (verified) complaints made online by our graduates, and ACTEFLC would have revoked our Fully Accredited status.
3.TEFL Online Pro does not own trustedteflreviews.com.
TEFL Online Pro is currently the top-rated TEFL program listed on trustedteflreviews.com.
We won the prestigious Teachers’ Choice Award in 2019, 2020, and 2021, and we have verified customer reviews published on trustedteflreviews.com.
teflonlinepro.com and trustedteflreviews.com both run on WordPress – as do 455 million other websites. Automattic is the default hosting for all WordPress.com sites and this means that all WordPress.com hosted sites share the same server names and server ip addresses.
teflonlinepro.com and trustedteflreviews.com are both domain names registered with Namecheap. Namecheap has 11 million registered users and 10 million domains. The default domain privacy settings for Namecheap registered domains – the publicly available address and telephone number associated with the domain – are the same for all Namecheap domains.
The similarity between teflonlinepro.com and trustedteflreviews.com ends there.
TEFL Online Pro is Fully Accredited by the Accreditation Council for Teaching English as a Foreign Language Courses (ACTEFLC).
acteflc.com accredits online distance learning and in-class international TEFL/TESL/TESOL certification course programs and is recognized internationally as a reliable authority on educational quality.
As a Fully Accredited course provider, we have the authorization to display the ACTEFLC logo on our school website and on our international TEFL/TESOL certificates.
Our Fully Accredited certification status provides our graduates with a significant advantage when applying for teaching jobs online and abroad, and we maintain a 100% success rate in helping to find our graduates teaching work upon completion of their TEFL Online Pro certification course.
The claim that TEFL Online Pro owns acteflc.com is just as intentionally false and intentionally misleading as is the claim that TEFL Online Pro owns trustedteflreviews.com.
6. TEFL Online Pro customer video reviews are not fake.
We currently have eleven customer video reviews published online.
All eleven videos were recorded by graduates of a TEFL Online Pro Online TEFL/TESOL certification course.
None of the reviews were recorded by a person who has not paid for and completed a TEFL Online Pro international TEFL/TESOL certification course.
Each person who has recorded a video review has also left a verified customer review on our company’s Facebook page.
C.The intention of the assertions.
The intention of the assertions is simply to try and reduce the credibility of TEFL Online Pro in the eyes of potential TEFL student customers and to tempt potential TEFL student customers into purchasing an alternative TEFL course option.
None of the assertions come from a reputable source.
All six assertions have been published by business competitors.
D. Which business competitors have made the assertions?
The assertions have been published by ESLinsider and MyTEFL.
Both are business competitors, providing Online TEFL/TESOL certification courses of their own.
Ian Leahy – owner of the ESLinsider TEFL online program – has been banned from Facebook (since 2017) for shilling, spamming, and spreading TEFL conspiracy theories.
Ian has targeted TEFL Online Pro on complaints websites, public discussion forums, on his ESLinsider blog, and on his YouTube channels.
Ian Leahy/ESLinsider dishes dirt on business competitors in his/its own name, and also anonymously.
ESLinsider is notorious in the TEFL world for writing fictitious, malicious content about its business competitors – on its school blog, its YouTube channels, on complaint websites, on discussion forums, etc.
Pick any TEFL program or TEFL accreditation body and ESLinsider will have written or recorded some conspiracy theory baloney about it at some time.
As an example, YouTube blocked from view one of Ian Leahy’s ESLinsider videos – a video in which Ian targeted TEFL Online Pro with fabricated claims of fraud and being a scam.
When you read or watch something published online by ESLinsider, this is the guy who is publishing it:
MyTEFL has targeted TEFL Online Pro on complaints websites, public discussion forums, and on a couple of websites that were created by MyTEFL for this sole purpose.
MyTEFL’s particularly M.O. is creating low-budget WordPress blogs that smear-campaign its business competitors.
MyTEFL has ad verbum replicated the conspiracy theories spread online by ESLinsider/Ian Leahy.
This company dishes dirt on its business competitors through anonymous content.
When you read or watch something published online by MyTEFL, this is the guy who is publishing it:
TEFL Online Pro is seeking legal advice and we will be acting accordingly in due course.
E.Why has TEFL Online Pro issued this rebuttal?
We chose to issue this rebuttal because it appears that not everyone is aware that the TEFL marketplace is highly competitive and that some TEFL programs do not follow better business practices.
It is, therefore, imperative that we defend ourselves against false and misleading accusations, and that we educate people who are new in TEFL about these poor business practices.
Content published online by ESLinsider/Ian Leahy and MyTEFLabout their TEFL program competitors and/or about TEFL accreditation organizations is not a reliable source of information.
F.TEFL Online Pro verified customer feedback.
Verified TEFL Online Pro customer feedback can be viewed on the TEFL Online Pro Facebook page, on the TEFL Online Pro YouTube channel, on the teflonlinepro.com Reviews page, and Trusted TEFL Reviews – the independent TEFL reviews website:
Three of our graduates, who recently graduated from a TEFL Online Pro international TEFL/TESOL course, recorded a post-course and TEFL employment follow-up video testimonial.
1a. Astrid Mendieta’s post-course video reviews her 120-Hour Professional certification course experience.
1b. Astrid Mendieta’s TEFL employment follow-up video describes how her TEFL Online Pro TEFL/TESOL certificate was instrumental in landing teaching English job interviews in Japan, South Korea, and Spain. This certification has also been an essential document for the purpose of teaching English online for a reputable training company. Astrid also describes how her TEFL Online Pro certification has been an essential document for successfully securing a TEFL position abroad at a high school in Valencia, Spain.
2a. Noor Yafaie’s post-course video reviews her 140-Hour Hybrid certification course experience.
2b. Noor Yafaie’s TEFL employment follow-up video reviews how her TEFL Online Pro TEFL/TESOL certificate was instrumental in finding teaching work online with PalFish and Preply and how it has been an essential document for successfully securing a teaching English position abroad at a government school in South Korea.
3a. Clara Vinthagen’s post-course video reviews her 120-Hour Professional certification course experience.
3b. Clara Vinthagen’s TEFL employment follow-up video reviews how her TEFL Online Pro TEFL/TESOL certificate was instrumental in finding teaching work online and how it has been an essential document for successfully securing a teaching English position abroad at an international language school in Spain.
Astrid’s, Clara’s, and Noor’s experiences are representative of all of our customers who take a TEFL Online Pro Online TEFL/TESOL certification course.
TEFL Online Pro accepts students from all native English-speaking countries, as well as students from non-native English-speaking countries.
After winning the Teachers’ Choice Award for the first time, in 2019, TEFL Online Pro veered onto the radar of the larger TEFL course providers and it was soon after that we noticed some online attacks by business competitors.
When we won the prestigious award for the second and then the third time, TEFL Online Pro increasingly became a target for online attacks.
None of the attacks were instigated by a TEFL Online Pro customer or a TEFL Online Pro education partner. Any attacks were instigated by a TEFL program business competitor.
The most important thing for us is that the vast majority of our customers provide overwhelmingly positive feedback on our courses and services and that they recommend us after taking one of our fully accredited and internationally recognized TEFL/TESOL certification courses.
We just thought that you should be made aware that there are an awful lot of people trying to make money from TEFL, and that some of them will go to extraordinary lengths in order to do so.
A large number of TEFL programs comply with strict codes of business practice and focus on developing their products and services.
A few TEFL programs, on the other hand, operate with limited reliance on codes of business practice and tend to focus solely on extracting as much money as they possibly can from their customers – by whichever means is possible.
