General » Final Exams
The final exam is now 90 minutes long with 80 questions for the Foundation Course if you are doing it online! The specializations are 60 minutes and 50 questions.

You have 3 months per course to complete your course. So for example if you are taking 2 specializations online, you have 6 months to complete those.

I hope that clears up those questions! :)

Good luck!
General » Announcing Fall 2010 Glimpse Correspondents Program
This came in on Friday! What a cool opportunity!!

Subject: Announcing Fall 2010 Glimpse Correspondents Program

I'm writing in hopes that you'll encourage program participants at Global Tesol to apply for the Fall 2010 Glimpse Correspondents Program. This is a chance for students, volunteers, teachers, and other young travelers who are going abroad next semester to get their stories published at high-profile publications--and to get paid for it.

Powered by Matador, and supported in part by the National Geographic Society, the Glimpse Correspondents Program provides talented writers and photographers between the ages of 18-36 with a $600 stipend as well as one on one editorial training and support to complete an independent journalistic work based on their experience abroad.

I hope to work with Global Tesol participants this Fall! Please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions.

More and more schools and agents are using Skype for interviews, so if you can't message from your account, ask them if you can Skype to ask questions, etc.
