Our 60-hour course provides a solid introduction to the world of Teaching English as a Foreign Language. The course has been designed to give you the essential skills and knowledge you will need to take your first steps in the classroom.
Please note that many employers will insist on their teachers having a certificate of 120 hours or more (see our 120-hour certificate course here).
As an introductory level course, the materials for the 60-hour course focus solely on the teaching skills that are required to deliver a successful lesson in the classroom. The areas that are covered include teaching theories and methodologies, classroom management, lesson planning and how to test and evaluate your students’ progress. This short format course does not cover language awareness and certain other important components that are included in our 120-hour course.
The course is divided into ten separate units that have been designed to gradually build up your knowledge, without overwhelming you with information. Thanks to this design you should be able to comfortably work your way through the materials at a pace that suits your learning style and personal circumstances.
The course is designed to be as flexible as possible. You are given up to six months to complete all the units, and within this time frame you are free to work at whatever pace you want.
The tutored version of this course also includes access to a selection of videos featuring our highly experienced trainers presenting stimulating and relevant lectures on some of the most important topics that are covered in the written materials. This interesting mix of written and video instruction is designed to help you fully absorb the information for each unit before you move on to the next. The subjects covered in the videos for this course include:
