TEFL Course Aims
Our 60-hour course will provide you with a solid introduction to the wide world of Teaching English as a Foreign Language. The course has been specifically designed to provide you with all the essential skills and knowledge you will need to embark on a career in the TEFL industry.
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 it is an entry level course, the materials for the 60-hour course mainly concentrate on the teaching skills that you will need in order to present an effective lesson in the classroom. The subjects that are covered include teaching theories and methodologies, classroom management, lesson planning and how to test and evaluate your students’ progress. The short format of the course means it does not cover language awareness and certain other important components that are included in our 120-hour course.
The course is designed around ten individual units that will gradually build up your knowledge of each subject, without overwhelming you with too much information at once. Due to this design you should be able to work through the materials at whatever pace suits your learning style and personal circumstances.
