Students should expect a professional-level TEFL certification class to run from 9 am - 6 pm daily (5 days a week) with 10 -14 students in a class. Student teaching (practicum) is often completed in the evening hours with local ESL students. The majority of TEFL certification classes are held at language schools that provide a perfect venue for gaining live teaching experience. All TEFL certification classes incorporate a minimum of 100 hours of academic course work and at least 6 hours of observed student teaching with ESL students.
These are more than "full-time" classes with 2-3 hours of homework every day in additional to class time.
