Course Aims

Our 150-hour online TEFL course gives a full introduction to the world of Teaching English as a Foreign Language. Once the course is completed, the learner will have developed a competent working knowledge of English grammar and a variety of teaching skills and techniques that will assist each student to present interesting, relevant and well-constructed lessons in the EFL classroom.

Course Content

The 150-hour online TEFL course covers the teaching of English in all essential aspects. One part of the course focuses on the world of TEFL which covers teachers, learners and essential elements of the language such as teaching approaches, methodologies and lexicon. Another part deals with subjects related to teaching competences that are essential in the EFL classroom; these include the four skills (writing, speaking, listening and reading), classroom management, lesson planning and grammar, for instance, sentence structure, parts of speech, the tense system among others. The final part of the course is based on language teaching skills; these cover the main areas of classroom discipline, classroom dynamics, phonology and effective evaluation techniques on how to assess the progress of EFL students.

These subject areas are divided into twelve separate modules that are designed to gradually develop and achieve teaching knowledge. Due to its design, each learner will find that the course is created to comfortably work through the program at his or her own pace without the learner being overwhelmed with too much information.
