 TEFL Course Schedule

The students in the class meet five days a week, Monday through Friday, from 9:30 am to 12:00 noon, learning theoretical topics related to teaching English as a foreign language; and from 12:30pm to 3:00pm (15:00 hr.) in the afternoon, putting into practice the topics learned in the morning. The internship practice teaching of real-life students is done sometime between 5:30 pm (17:30 hr.) and 9:00 pm (21:00 hr.) in the evening.

The TEFL theory portion of the course is of forty hours duration. The theory class meets everyday, Monday to Thursday, for 2.5 hours a day from 9:30 am until 12:00 noon, for four weeks. The TEFL practice portion of the course is also of forty hours duration, but it is divided into two equal modules of twenty hours each. The Children practice module meets every Monday and Wednesday, for 2.5 hours a day from 12:30 pm until 3:00 pm, for four weeks; and the Business English practice module meets every Tuesday and Thursday, for 2.5 hours a day from 12:30 pm until 3:00 pm, also for four weeks.  The TEFL Practice Teaching portion of the course is again of forty hours duration, but it is divided into two equal modules of twenty hours each. The Observed Practice Teaching module meets every Friday for 5 hours a day from 10:00 am until 3:00 pm, for four weeks; and the Internship Practice Teaching module meets sometime between 5:30 pm (17:30 hr.) and 9:00 pm (21:00 hr.) in the evening on various days during the program.

Thus, the course consists of forty hours learning theory in the mornings; forty hours of lesson planning, role plays, presentations, peer teaching and critiques in the afternoons; twenty hours of observed practice classes; and twenty hours of paid internship practice teaching classes out in the field in the evenings to make sure students are prepared for ESL teaching.

 TEFL Course Outline
 The Teachers and the Students

The Teachers
All the teachers in the course have been involved in professional teaching and training for a number of years. They are still active teachers and therefore are fully aware of the classroom situations facing foreign language teachers, who teach abroad, today. Each group will have input from at least three teachers during the course.

The Students
Applications are welcomed from all interested parties, regardless of nationality. The only requirements are a proficient level of English, some study at the higher educational level and a willingness to adapt to the intensive nature of the course to teach English abroad.
