E/ MORE ABOUT THE COURSE
First of all this Advanced TEFL Course comprises a complete Grammar Course, Methodology Units, Language and Levels Units, and Classroom Management Units. The study programme focuses on the most essential TEFL skills and is considered a complete and advanced course.
Secondly you can always apply to the practical course (in Barcelona, Madrid, or Valencia) when you feel ready. This course lasts 140 hours when spending 40 to 60 minutes on each grammar point and an average of 60 minutes on each of the other chapters contained in the other units (Language and Levels, Methodology, and Classroom Management). We would not recommend completing this course in less time!
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. You will learn everything you need to know to Teach English Grammar (Teaching English as a Foreign Language – TEFL). The videos are supplemented by interactive exercises and text you can read online.
UNDERSTANDING LANGUAGE AND LEVELS
So this is a great course for learners of English and for future TEFL professionals (teachers and coordinators) as it comes with units on Methodology and Lesson Planning (ideal for self-study and teaching). You will learn about a system of methods you can use or mistakes to avoid in the classroom. Language and Level units are designed to give you a better understanding of the CEFR (Common European Framework of Reference for Language Learning, Teaching, and Assessment) and help you identify and address common mistakes made by learners of English. The Classroom Management units will give you some insight into disciplinary problems, motivation and organisation in the classroom. This course can take between anything between 50 and 140 hours, depending on your prior knowledge of English, on whether you have taught before or not*, as well as your level of perfectionism.
