  5. You are ready to start! Just go through the materials and e-mail your tutor your work when you are ready.

Course Contents

This course consists of ten separate units (twelve if you enroll on the Endorsed TEFL Certificate) that explore the theoretical and methodological aspects of teaching English as a foreign or second language, plus an end-of-course teacher observation project. You will develop the skills of teaching by working your way through a number of practical tasks. As part of your training you will be asked to reflect on how you would apply these theories and methods in an actual classroom setting. A regular assignment is to give you real life situations and require you to plan unique lessons for a specific group of learners at varying levels of skill and understanding.

The Certificate is offered in two versions:

A- The Certificate in TEFL (150 hrs)

B - The Certificate in TEFL with an Endorsement in Teaching English for Business and English to Young Learners (190 hrs)

The Endorsed Certificate can be particularly useful to those candidates who aspire to work in organisations that run young learners courses and/or provide in-company training.

Learning styles and multiple intelligence theory
Classroom management
Planning and executing lessons
Teaching speaking and writing
Teaching listening and reading

If you dedicate yourself to the course fully, for example an average of 3 hours a day, you can finish in less than four weeks.
