Groupon TEFL courses

Has anyone done a TEFL course more specifically the Groupon 120 hour online course. Its advertises at a good price at the moment so I'm wondering if its worth doing .I keep getting asked to teach neighbours children and friends of my husband's children but I know nothing about teaching .I don't know the structure of how to teach and basically where to start .They only want 1 hour a week but even so I would prefer some sort of basic training myself .

I did the qualification some years ago for the same reason. I don't know that particular course provider, but they are ranked, with top ones allowing you to walk into a job anywhere in the World; I recall that the Cambridge course did that, for example. I don't think you need such a long course for what you want.

It does help you to structure your lessons, but remember that they are geared up for teaching teachers, so can be quite intense.

I did some voluntary classroom work in a nearby language school until the risk of 'work' became apparent and I had to stop for their sake as well as mine.

I qualified 15 years or so ago but it's no use in Turkey as you now have to have a degree.

I think this is to teach in a school Shash. She would probably be able to work in a language school.

I merely want some guidance on teaching privately.
I have no intention of working in a school or even a language school but I would prefer to have some sort of training .

I found the course very good and it enabled me to teach in my local college in the UK. Best thing is to just go for it and enjoy it. The structure was very easy to relate to. I thoroughly liked it and went on to do a follow-up course but I can't remember what it was called now. . But yep I'd recommend it.
