What is the ICAL TEFL Course?
This TEFL Certification course is a serious, practical and comprehensive introduction to all the essential elements of Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL).
Overall it will:
• prepare you for any English teaching situation
• give you a solid understanding of the principles behind Teaching English as a Foreign Language
• give you a wealth of practical ideas on how to make any lesson a fruitful and enjoyable experience for both yourself and your students
The course involves all aspects of TEFL including needs analysis, syllabus design, lesson planning, classroom management, strategies in language learning, teaching methods, testing & error correction and so on. In other words, it covers all you need to know…
The material used in our TEFL course is in line with the current linguistic theories and reflects common teaching practice amongst professional teachers. The course covers all areas a prospective teacher should be aware of.
Each module consists of reading material which includes plenty of examples and explanations, and spot checks to make sure important ideas and concepts are understood well. At the end of each module there is an assignment. This is written and sent to your personal tutor for grading and comments.
Our TEFL course has been created and developed by experienced TEFL teachers over the past 16 years. They combined their theoretical background in linguistics with their direct experience of teaching in the class to produce a practical, user-friendly, course for new teachers. Every year we thoroughly review the material and make sure it’s up-to-date so you receive the latest information, and best practices, for teaching English around the world.

Will I have a Personal Tutor?
Yes, you will.
ICAL TEFL was the first online TEFL provider to give personal tutors to every single student at no extra charge.
Your tutor is an integral part of the course and is there exactly to help you achieve the best results you can achieve.
They will not only help you with your coursework but they will also answer your questions about teaching and about English. And they will give you solid, practical advice on being an English teacher.
Our personal tutors have years of experience and are more than happy passing on that knowledge to new teachers when they need it.
Plus of course you’ll have full access to the ICAL TEFL Resources, a wealth of up-to-date information on every single aspect of TEFL that you can imagine.
Is this course internationally accepted?
Yes, it is.
ICAL has been providing quality online teacher training since 1998 and the positive feedback we get from our ICAL graduates who have found employment in language schools all over the world, not only in the private sector but also in public schools, confirms that our Certificate is extremely well accepted.
The many thousands of ICAL graduates who live and teach in every corner of the globe working in everything from small one-room schools to large university campuses are the best testament to the value of our TEFL certification programs.
If you are serious about TEFL and teaching abroad then it’s no use taking a short “weekend” course or a “taster” course because schools just won’t accept them as a proper qualification.
Instead you’ll find that when it comes to finding work, most schools ask for a Certificate that is worth 120 hours and they welcome the ICAL TEFL Certificate 120hr.
How long will it take me to complete the course?
Learning happens best when you – the student – set your own pace.
Because our course is 100% online you can work at your own pace – we follow your schedule, you don’t follow ours. This means you can take as long – or as little – as you need to complete the course.
If you have plenty of free time and can devote yourself to the course you can complete it in just a couple of weeks. We have had highly motivated students on a tight deadline who managed to finish the course and graduate in just over 2 weeks.
But if you’re working in another job… or you’re at college full time… or maybe you have a busy lifestyle… well in that case you can take all the time you need to complete the course.
Remember, we don’t set time limits and make you work to our timetable. You are in charge of your own schedule.
Why is this course cheaper than those I’ve seen around?
As you will be distance learning online, our overheads are significantly reduced. At ICAL TEFL we have made it our policy to pass this saving on to our valued students. What you will receive is a full course for a fraction of the normal price – we save you money without compromising on quality.
And in addition to the great savings you will enjoy, you will also receive for free:
• Your ICAL TEFL Certificate
• Your Reference Letter – written by your personal tutor
• Your Marksheet
