Online TEFL Course Overview
Designed by top academic experts in the first of TEFL, this 4-week intensive online TEFL class is specifically designed for those who are looking to get TEFL certified from the safety and comfort of home in just 4-weeks. All successful graduates will receive an internationally recognized qualification to professionally teach English as a foreign language (TEFL) abroad, domestically or online.
Working with our highly experienced university-level instructors, students will learn how to create activities, lesson plans, and assessments that address the language skills of reading, writing, listening, and speaking. They will also gain skills in areas like classroom management, error correction & understanding how to bridge cultural differences. Subsequently, they will directly apply those skills via our online practice teaching, which will be monitored and supervised by the instructors. Read more about course content here.
While this class is taken entirely online through the platforms of Zoom and Moodle, it incorporates the extensive face-to-face interaction with instructors and classmates that you can expect from an intensive in-person TEFL class.
The course is accredited at "Level 5" TEFL course by Ofqual, Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulation (United Kingdom's education regulation body), which is the same level of accreditation enjoyed by our ITA operated 4-week classes, including CELTA.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Please be prepared for the intensive nature of this course. Unlike ITA's award-winning 11-week part-time online TEFL class, this class is a live full-time university-level course. You will be logged into class full-time 5 days a week (6-8 hours a day typically) & there is homework as well. Classes begin daily at 9:30 am (Central Time USA). There are breaks built into the schedule and students will also spend some of their class day working on individual or group projects. In addition, approximately twice a week, students will stay until 8 pm (Central Time - U.S.) to complete practice teaching (other class days wrap up around 5:30 pm Central Time - U.S.). Please check out a sample course calendar here.
If you are unable to make a full-time commitment to take this course, please consider our 11-Week Part-time Online TEFL Course, which provides an identical certification and is specifically designed to accommodate people who are working or going to school full-time.
