    COURSE CURRICULUM

    The course features three short sessions during which the TEFL course participants learn a little of an unknown language. This will help them to become familiar with the following:
    a) How to start a lesson when nobody speaks each other’s language.
    b) Understand what their prospective EFL students feel when they start learning English.
    c) Practice another method they can use when teaching difficult language. This method will help their students to better understand the concept.

    TEFL students learn particulars of organizing a classroom, teacher-student rapport development, maintaining discipline in class, techniques to turning around an unruly class, and creating a high-energy class. <

    TEFL course participants learn techniques to test the fluency level of their EFL students. The test results help them write a student evaluation in which they suggest to their practice students ways to improve their proficiency in the various areas of English.

    While reviewing English grammar, the TEFL course participants observe sample grammar classes that later on help them prepare interesting grammar classes for their own EFL students.

    Starting with a journey throughout centuries of language teaching till the present time, our TEFL course students will familiarize themselves with the beginnings of teaching languages. They learn how to gradually help their own students to develop language skills and how to effectively teach grammar and vocabulary. Most importantly, they will learn how to structure their individual classes, so they lead their students to recognizing their actual progress. Our TEFL graduates will also be familiar with assessment strategies and the different benchmark systems in the world.

    The introduction to Phonology includes stress, intonation, the sounds, sound linking and other aspects of the English language. Our trainees also learn how to create interesting phonology classes during which their own EFL students are captured by the context and learning about phonology next to it. The time of boring phonology classes is finally over with our graduates.

    By the end of the TEFL program, course participants will be thoroughly familiar with the elements of a lesson plan, and the different sequences when planning skill development or vocabulary/grammar segments. They will be able to design lesson plans that have students successfully learn the focus of the lessons. Our course emphasizes the design of classes. It is here where the true skills of a teacher come alive. An excellent lesson plan is, most often, a prerequisite to getting hired at high-paying schools.

    In order to help our TEFL trainees to quickly acquire indispensable teaching knowledge, they have to observe and evaluate the classes of their peers. Learning by observing other teachers will ultimately help them to critically look at their own classes.

    During our TEFL certification in Paris, the trainees teach English to either French locals or immigrants to France. They come to the school daily to be taught. The teaching sessions are observed by an experience TEFL instructor. There is a daily feedback session that analyses the lesson plan and the class and incorporates additional practice for our TEFL trainees.
    During their teaching practice, TEFL students have to create their own materials (worksheets, pictures, flash cards, power point presentations) for their classes. They will learn to help themselves in situations when resources are scarce. Such moments could potentially occur when teaching in Africa, in poor Asian countries, or in remote locations in South America.
    Our Career Support is a very important aspect of the TEFL certification. We take it seriously. Our support does not only cover the resume/CV preparation and school lists of the country of their destination, we also refer our students to worldwide recruiters and schools of our iTTi network which comprises locations in many countries.

    If our graduates wish to become more experienced in teaching, we offer a free teaching internship at the school. They will get proof of the internship and can add it to their application paperwork.

    We also help our graduates open their own English school online and provide them with a school solution that consists of the platform, the courses, the books, and the lesson preparations. All they need to do is add students and start teaching.

    For those who want to reach for the stars, they can take up a TEFL trainer certification and then apply to our worldwide schools. TEFL trainer certification requires three years of active teaching and a BA as a minimum education besides 120-Hour TEFL Certification.

    The training environment allows me to progress every day. Everything is there for me to study and learn properly.

    The training is useful so far. I have learned a lot regarding the methodology, the knowledge I was lacking. I am in the process of learning the tools which will allow me to organize a lesson properly.
  • Do you feel as though you have ample opportunities to participate?
    As we are only a few students, I have no other choice than to participate actively in the course. This gives me some opportunities to develop some of my skills and to gain trust.
