The online TEFL course by ATI is extremely elaborate. The students can chat with the instructor if they have any problem. There are e-books and reading materials which are provided in the website, which the candidates can refer to while writing their assignments. In the 'Travel and Teach Project' by American TESOL Institute the online trainees will be given reading material for twenty hours. A cultural orientation is also done after the teachers reach the country where they are given a job placement. There are also other facilities like chat and message boards which helps in interacting with the instructor and the fellow students.
