120 HOUR – FOUR WEEK INTENSIVE TEFL COURSE:
Our four week 120-hour Intensive program is designed to prepare any teacher for the classroom environment. Our experienced TEFL trainers are certified to teach proper teaching techniques and ensure that all trainees who complete the course are well rounded and informed before completion.
During the course, each trainee is required to complete 6 observed teaching practices and must be in attendance every day the TEFL course is scheduled. (Missing any information taught on any day is critical to the TEFL trainee’s success.)
The practice teachings are scheduled throughout the 4-week course allowing the trainee to reflect on any feedback they have received from their TEFL trainer and peers. During the last week, trainees will have ample opportunity to put all of the teaching theory they have learned into their final teaching practices so it is paramount that each trainee attends their scheduled classes.
