TEFL Materials

TEFL Trainees who are based at one of our in-class course locations will be provided with a course manual covering the following areas:

  • Language Awareness/Grammar
  • Teaching Skills
  • Classroom Management
  • Phonetics

Our course materials are both comprehensive and unique. They are of an unparalleled quality and are used throughout the course during interactive discussion sessions. Students should also find these materials to be an invaluable resource when teaching in the future.

We also provide a course book and a range of materials that include an A4 folder which should be organised in the following manner:

  • The TEFL Course Log
  • Teaching practice lesson plan, materials & assessment
  • Unknown language journal
  • Lesson observation journal

This log is designed to record the individual progress of each trainee throughout the course. It should be maintained in a neat, well organised manner and be professional in appearance.

Input sessions will take place throughout the duration of the course. During these sessions many handouts will be provided and you will take your own personal notes. It is suggested that such materials be filed under the following headings:

  • Timetable
  • Teaching skills
  • Classroom management
  • Grammar
  • Phonology
