Bridge TEFL - International Diploma in English Language Teaching TESOL ($1,000)

This international diploma is available for $1k. It will give you 9 graduate level ACE credits too!
I think this type of credential can be helpful if you want to travel abroad and work there.

The program is 100% online!

Tefl can be bought for around $40 for 160 hours course on groupon
And most of those TEFL groupons aren't worth the paper that they're (not) printed on. I'd rather have a TEFL certificate from a legit university, if possible.

And for a lot of schools and programmes, this is (unfortunately) sufficient. If you're only going to teach for a year or two, you won't have time to develop any real teaching skills anyway, so there's perhaps not much point in forking out 1000+ for a certificate or diploma course.

I still recommend the CELTA as the gold standard for teaching English if you value pedagogy and teaching as a profession, but outside of Europe and Australia, its not quite as well appreciated as it perhaps should be.
If you've not the time or inclination for the CELTA, this might be a decent alternative. Being able to use this towards a Master of TESOL later on so is a major plus.

What's with the fascination people have on here for Groupon? I ask because in the US, they are not highly thought of at all. So many scams come out of them.

Bridge TEFL is giving you a Diploma! not a certificate or just a course!
Diploma is a legit qualification.

Certificate < Diploma < Associate's Degree < Bachelor's Degree
