How can you tell if a TESOL course is high quality?

What to check when comparing TESOL Courses:
- Beware of providers that claim they offer "Internationally accredited courses". There is no international body that accredits courses. Ask who the Course is accredited by. Has the Course got Government accreditation? If no, think twice.
- Be careful! A cheap course may not always be worth something at the end.
- Beware of providers who claim to give you a job at the end - is it actually a job or just an interview? If it is a job, ask a lot about what sort of job it is, where it is and what payment you will get (and whether it is even enough to cover living costs in that country).
- Add up the costs - some courses advertise a low fee, but then hit you with enrolment fees, practical placement fees, resource fees etc. and it ends up more expensive in the end.
