Refutation of allegations made by our business competitors

TEFL Online Pro statement in response to malicious, misleading and untrue statements published online by TEFL program competitors.

Three of our business competitors have published malicious, misleading and untrue assertions online with regards to the TEFL Online Pro international TEFL/TESOL certification course program.

The assertions:

  1. TEFL Online Pro is not accredited.
  2. TEFL Online Pro is not a legitimate company.
  3. TEFL Online Pro is a fraud/scam.
  4. TEFL Online Pro is the owner of trustedteflreviews.com.
  5. TEFL Online Pro customer video reviews are fake.

None of the assertions hold up under scrutiny. All five of the assertions are untrue and defamatory.

Our response to the assertions:

  1. TEFL Online Pro is fully accredited by ACTEFLC – Accreditation Council for Teaching English as a Foreign Language Courses. Our acteflc.com accreditation identification number: T21-1325910.
  2. TEFL Online Pro is a legitimate company, providing international Online TEFL/TESOL certification courses. TEFL Online Pro has been a verified business member with Paypal since 2019. Our course graduates teach English online and overseas with their TEFL Online Pro certification, and this is backed up by our verified customer reviews.
  3. TEFL Online Pro is not a fraud or scam. If TEFL Online Pro were a fraud or scam, there would be multiple verified customer complaints made online and Paypal would not have continued to partner with us.
  4. TEFL Online Pro is currently the top-rated TEFL program listed on trustedteflreviews.com. We won the prestigious Teachers’ Choice Award in 2019 and 2020, and we have verified customer reviews published on Trusted TEFL Reviews. Any valid similarity between teflonlinepro.com and trustedteflreviews.com ends there. In addition, the TEFL Online Pro Facebook page was created an entire year before the Facebook page of Trusted TEFL Reviews.
  5. TEFL Online Pro currently has eleven customer video reviews uploaded, with two graduates having recorded a post-course and follow-up video – describing their course experience and how their TEFL Online Pro certificate has enabled them to secure online and overseas teaching English employment. 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 taken a TEFL Online Pro Online TEFL/TESOL certification course. The majority of our customers that have recorded a video testimonial for us, have also left a customer review on the TEFL Online Pro Facebook page.

The intention of the assertions.

All five assertions have been published by business competitors. None of the assertions come from a reputable source.

The intention of the assertions is to seed doubt and reduce the credibility of TEFL Online Pro in the eyes of potential customers. It is also the intention of the assertions to divert business from TEFL Online Pro to the competitors making the assertions.

The assertions have been published by ESLinsider TEFL/Ian Patrick Leahy, MyTEFL, The TEFL Academy/Caitriona (Maria) McTiernan.

All three are business competitors, providing Online TEFL/TESOL certification courses of their own.

Proof that links Caitriona (Maria) McTiernan and Ian Patrick Leahy to a TEFL competitor is listed below this rebuttal statement.

TEFL Online Pro is seeking legal advice and we will be acting accordingly in due course.

Verified TEFL Online Pro customer feedback can be viewed on the TEFL Online Pro Facebook page, on the TEFL Online Pro YouTube page, on the teflonlinepro.com Reviews page, and on the independent TEFL reviews website Trusted TEFL Reviews:

One of our August 2020 graduates, who took the TEFL Online Pro 140-Hour Hybrid Online TEFL/TESOL certification course, recently provided us with a follow-up video testimonial. Noor describes 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 in South Korea.

Here is Noor’s follow-up video testimonial:

TEFL Online Pro review: Teaching English online and in South Korea.

Noor’s experience is representative of all of our customers who take a TEFL Online Pro Online TEFL/TESOL certification course.

TEFL Online Pro runs three award-winning, fully accredited and internationally recognized Online TEFL/TESOL certification courses:

60-Hour Fast-Track – the perfect solution for people with TEFL experience. 

120-Hour Professional – the perfect solution for people with little or no TEFL experience.

140-Hour Hybrid – the perfect solution for people with little or no TEFL experience who are wanting in-class teaching practice.

All three Level 5 and CELTA-equivalent courses lead to the awarding of the international TEFL/TESOL certificate.

With a TEFL Online Pro TEFL/TESOL certificate, you are guaranteed a teaching English job online or overseas.

We thought it was important to issue a statement because those of you who are new to TEFL may not realize that it is a small number of our TEFL competitors that are writing that TEFL Online Pro is not a legitimate company, not our TEFL customers. 

The overwhelming majority of our TEFL customers have a very positive TEFL Online Pro course and post-course experience.

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

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.
