What is the absolute cheapest course you've seen out there? Have you seen one like in the 99 buck range? Some on line piece of Junk I assume, but still. The courses are getting so cheap I wonder if they'll start giving them out for free Rolling Eyes

Cheapest onsite course I've seen is Oxford Seminars in Canada at $700 something CDN. Cheapest online I've seen was $25 us, but it was a gag site that sent out diplomas printed on toilet paper. I think $195 us is the lowest online cert cost I've seen of late.

Some courses may as well be free for their value in the work place.

Some online courses are just cheap - you get what you pay for. On the other hand, some of the CELTA courses are really not worth the $1500 - $2000 which they charge. Yes, they give you "teaching practice", but 6 hours of supervised teaching practice in no way prepares you for being shoved into classroom with 45 Chinese 6 year olds, no syllabus and no taxtbook and being told "Teach them English". Whichever course you choose, examine the contents very very carefully. Look for a detailed explanation of the syllabus and what it will do for you.
