First of all, the Online part of our TEFL Course comprises a complete Grammar Course, Phonetics Course, Methodology Units, Language and Levels Units, as well as Classroom Management Units. The online TEFL course focuses on the most essential TEFL skills and is considered a complete and advanced course.

In short, our professional video tutorials, explaining TEFL essentials point by point, using plain English and lingo, enable you to gradually acquire the “metalanguage” (lingo of Grammar) and other jargon, as well as good subject knowledge. The videos are supplemented by interactive exercises and text you can read online.

The ideal way to complete the course would be:

  • 1 Skype session to run through the Student Handbook and receive general guidance for the course.
  • Complete the online course at your own pace (122 mini chapters with quizzes and 6 final exams when you are ready) – generally completed over a 1 to 6-month period > any support or extra guidance would be provided by email.
  • 1 Skype session to discuss your 12 topics (lesson plans and reflective diaries).
  • Complete the 20-hour weekend crash course in Madrid or Valencia, whilst drafting your 6 reflective diaries.
  • 1 Skype session to go over your teaching experience in Madrid or Valencia, and run through all your grades and run through your CV whilst discussing how to apply for a job in TEFL.
