What Will I Learn?

In short, the TEFL certificate equips you with all the tools and knowledge you need to become a fully qualified TEFL teacher.

Key aspects that the course covers include:


Needs analysis

Classroom management

and much, much more. In fact, there’s simply too much to list here.

Upon completion of the course, you will have gained a solid understanding of the principles behind teaching English as a second or foreign language, as well as a wealth of practical ideas on how to make your lessons fun, effective, and methodologically sound.

Alongside your own personal tutor, you will also have access to a huge number of online resources, featuring up-to-date information on a whole host of topics – in fact, on everything you could possibly need to know. And after you’ve completed each of the five downloadable modules, you’ll be able to keep them for your future reference.

How Long Will The Course Take?

That is entirely up to you! Since the course can be taken at your own pace, you can gain your TEFL certificate in as little as four weeks. If you’re not pressed for time, you can take all the time you need.

We don’t set time limits, or expect you to fit in with our schedule, we work around yours. So whether you’re at a university, finished with school, working full time, have children to care for, or are ready to hit your studying full steam ahead – this is the course for you.

We have had some students qualify in as little as 2 weeks (with a lot of hard work), and other students who have completed the course gradually over 3 months or more. We have also had part-time students who took years to complete their course. And that’s fine too!

Ideally you should submit at least one assignment a year. If this is not possible and the course is left inactive for over 12 months, then we will help you reactivate it. See here for details.

Who Is This Course For?

If you want to see the world and immerse yourself in a new culture, add to your current teaching skills, or kickstart a new career, then this course is perfect for you. And, thanks to its comprehensive content and simple structure, it is suitable for new and experienced teachers alike.

There are no course prerequisites, you don’t need any previous experience – just a determination to learn and an enthusiasm for teaching English. We provide the rest!

How Much Can I Earn?

The salary of a TEFL teacher can vary. Of course, when you consider the other benefits (travel, culture, and freedom) it can make for a very appealing career.

The exact amount you can earn will depend on where in the world you choose to teach, at which type of school or institution, and whether you decide to teach online or onsite. In most cases a first time TEFL teacher will earn enough to cover living expenses and a bit extra – enough to cover outings, additional travel, and some savings.

Additionally, in some countries teaching jobs may also include extra benefits such as free housing and/or flight reimbursement – making it an even more appealing career option.
