Course breakdown

Each section covers essential TEFL training including grammar and vocabulary teaching guides, classroom confidence building, lesson planning and employment advice.

The course is packed full of practical knowledge and tips to help you become a great TEFL teacher. It has 3 main sections, guiding you through the core elements of successful teaching in turn. Each section includes:

  • Knowledge modules, combining clearly presented theory with short films,
    activities, quizzes and practical ideas to make your learning come alive.
  • Putting it into Practice, providing brilliant real life examples and ideas to help
    turn your knowledge into really effective teaching practice.
  • Check Your Knowledge, structured self-check quizzes to help
    you review what you have been taught.


Planning is an essential part of teaching. If you invest time in structuring and developing a lesson, you are well on the way to making it work once you step into the classroom (not to mention having something concrete to help you overcome those first day nerves!).

The first part of the course focuses on how to create a successful lesson plan. You will be guided through the process of creating a great plan and will learn about teaching methodologies, what to include in a lesson plan, how to set out a lesson plan and adapting your lesson for different types of classes you might teach.


A fantastic lesson plan needs to have some language content. This section examines the 3 main topics you will teach, namely: vocabulary, grammar and the 4 skills (reading, writing, listening and speaking).

You will refresh your own knowledge of each topic, and learn about how to turn this knowledge into great material for your class.


Planning your lesson and knowing your topic are brilliant foun dations for teaching. However, you still need to deliver your lesson to real students.

This section of the course explores how to give yourself the best possible chance of delivering your lesson successfully. You will learn about creating a good teaching environment for your students, approaches to helping your students to learn and how to deal with problems that arise.

Course Assessment

Once you have completed Section 3, you will be ready to take the course assessment. This has 3 parts: first you will take a test to check your knowledge, then you will need to create a lesson plan and finally produce a piece of written work to demonstrate your understanding of effective teaching.

Your work will be marked within 7 days, and you will receive detailed feedback. Your certificate will then follow within 28 days (although as a small and nimble business we always try to beat this!)

taking it further

Completing the course is just your first step to an amazing TEFL adventure. To help you on your way, we end the course with an additional section setting out listings for further reading and resources, practical hints for finding work (including links to useful recruitment sites), and finally some tips to help you with that crucial first day in the classroom.

Support and Advice

Trainees have access to support and advice throughout the course, through our support desk team and course tutors.
