The in-class TEFL course has many benefits and the most important is probably the real life teaching practice that is a large part of the overall course schedule. During the in-class course you will have many opportunities to practice the skills that you are taught in the input sessions by teaching actual lessons of your own with individual students or groups of genuine English language learners. There is no better preparation for a teaching career than having multiple practice sessions in a real classroom under the guidance of a professional teacher trainer.
Before you set foot in the classroom for your practice lessons you will undertake extensive lesson planning with the help of your trainer. Once the lesson is complete you will also receive a thorough debrief where the trainer will go over the areas that you excelled in and any that need a bit more work for future lessons. By the end of the course these practice sessions should mean you are confident in your teaching abilities and fully prepared to start a new job in your very own classroom, wherever you choose to live and work.
