I am thinking of enrolling with London Teacher Training College for some courses. May I know if its distance learning course it helpful by its content and recognized worldwide?

I don't really think that any online teacher training is viewed as being equal to doing the teacher training in person. I don't recruit teachers but if I did, I would dream of employing one that had trained online. Sorry if that offends anybody but that is my perception.
I am a teacher currently teaching both GCE O' Level and Cambridge ESOL programmes. Will it make up to the absence of in-class training of such online certification.
Students: We have free audio pronunciation exercises.
I couldn't tell you. The best thing to do is contact English Schools in the area of where you want to work and ask them. I have the CELTA, where I work a normal TEFL isn't enough, but it would be fine for teaching in lots of places outside of the UK. Good Luck.
How aggressive your reply is ,I think!

Sorry it wasn't what you wanted to hear. It isn't aggressive at all, as I didn't attack the poster, I simply gave my honest opinion. There are voucher companies offering online TESL courses for next to nothing. Where I work they are worth nothing. You need CELTA or Trinity as a min requirement. If you think that is agressive, you must have a qualification that lots of people don't value and didn't ask the same question as the poster before you took the qualification!
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
Thanks Dave, I do agree with you. CELTA is twice the price of a Dip in TESOL in both M'sia & SG. So, i m wondering if it is worth the money to take a CELTA instead of a DIp in TESOL offered by local colleges affiliated with LTTC.

No it isn't.....both are accredited at EDI level 5.

Anon is correct they are the both level, but just a couple of thoughts that may make it worth it. A Dip TESOL sometimes get mixed up with a Cert TESOL which is lower. CELTA is known by everyone in the TEFl/TESOL world. Finally if you were having to advertise/market yourself as a teacher, with CELTA your certificate comes from Cambridge University rather than the local college where you attended the course.

You know the difference in cost and what that money means to you. The quality in difference of the courses I couldn't comment on.
