TEFL Course Aims
The 120-hour online course provides a complete introduction to the world of TEFL. Upon completion of the course, graduates should have developed a good working knowledge of the English grammatical system as well as an awareness of the skills and techniques required for successful language teaching.
TEFL Course Content
The 120-hour course consists of two main areas - teaching skills and language awareness. The teaching skills components provide details of the techniques and skills required by teachers in the classroom, including teaching theories and methodologies, classroom management, lesson planning and how to test and evaluate the progress of your students. The language awareness components give a solid foundation in the English grammar system, as well as covering other important subjects such as pronunciation.
The course is divided into 20 individual units, carefully chosen and organized to ensure a gradual build up of knowledge, whilst not overloading students with too much information at any one time. The structure of this unit design allows you to work through the course at a pace that suits your requirements.
