TEFL Course Aims
The 60-hour course aims to give you a solid introduction to the world of Teaching English as a Foreign Language. The materials have been designed to give you all the essential skills and knowledge you will need to start out on your TEFL journey.
Please note that many employers will insist on their teachers having a certificate of 120 hours or more (see our 120-hour certificate course here).
TEFL Course Content
As this is an introductory level course, the written materials included only focus on the teaching skills that you will need to plan and present a successful lesson in the classroom. The subjects covered include teaching theories and methodologies, classroom management, lesson planning and how to test and evaluate your students’ progress. The shortened format of the course does not allow time to cover language awareness and certain other important components that are included in our 120-hour course.
The course materials are divided into ten units that have been designed to gradually build your knowledge, without overwhelming you with an excessive amount of information in one go. Thanks to this convenient structure you should find that you are able to comfortably work through the course at a pace that suits your circumstances and learning style.
