This 60-hour introductory TEFL Course is especially popular among trainees who are interested in gaining an insight into the English teaching world and those looking for their first teaching position. One of the biggest advantages of this online course is its high level of flexibility as it can be completed from anywhere in the world at a pace you set for yourself. Course graduates also have access to our helpful post-course services for one year after graduation. Please bear in mind that many employers worldwide require their teachers to possess a certification of 120 hours or more (see our 120-hour certificate course).
When logged into our online course system you will have access to all the course materials. You can study these materials online or download them onto your computer, tablet, or even your smartphone.
After completing each unit, you then complete a short evaluation of your understanding of the material before you move on to the next unit. Upon successful completion of all the course units, you then start work on your final summative task. When completed, the essay will be submitted to one of our online tutors who will assess your work. Once it has been accepted by the tutor, you will receive your TEFL certificate and graduate from the course.
Please note: As this is an introductory-level TEFL Course you will receive a PDF certificate via email upon completion, rather than a high-quality paper certificate that is awarded with all our other courses.
TEFL Course Aims
This 60-hour course offers you the perfect introduction to the exciting world of teaching English as a foreign language. The course units have been specifically designed and put together to provide you with all the necessary skills and knowledge you need to start your TEFL career.
TEFL Course Content
This entry-level course covers 60 hours of the most important teaching skills you will need to present lessons in an effective manner in classrooms around the globe. The units covered in the course include classroom management, teaching theories and methodologies, lesson planning, and student evaluation and testing. However, due to the course being an introduction to TEFL, it does not cover subjects such as language awareness and other important components that are included in our 120-hour course.
The course consists of 10 units that gradually build up your knowledge of English language teaching. This gradual learning process allows you to work comfortably without overwhelming you with too much content at once.
