TEFL - Course Materials

In-class TEFL trainees will be provided with a course manual for the following topics:

  • Language awareness/grammar
  • Teaching skills
  • TEFL methodology and theory
  • Classroom management
  • Phonetics

We base our input sessions on these high quality materials and you will be able to keep them after the course to use as a valuable reference in your future teaching career.

We also give trainees course handbooks and materials, including a three-ring folder which should be organized as follows:

The TEFL Course Log
  • Lesson plans and assessments
  • A journal for your unknown language inputs
  • A journal for your observations of experienced teachers

This course log will form a record of the progress you make through the course. The log will be inspected on a weekly basis and used for moderation purposes.

Personal Note File

You will receive numerous handouts throughout the course and will also take your own notes as well. Subjects should include:

  • Timetables
  • Teaching skills
  • Classroom management
  • Grammar
  • Phonology
