The course (worth 120 hrs) is a serious, practical and comprehensive introduction to the essential elements of Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL).
Overall it will:
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 we use 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 and 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.

Plus of course you'll have full access to the ICAL Resources, a wealth of up-to-date information on every single aspect of TEFL that you can imagine.
Yes, it is.
You want to be sure the TEFL Certificate you get will help you find work. Here at ICAL TEFL we have graduates working all over the world with our qualifications, so this isn't an issue.
We've been running this course since 1998 and it was the very first fully online TEFL Certificate course.
We now have many thousands of graduates living and teaching in every corner of the globe and working in everything from small one-room schools to large university campuses.
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 - just like the ICAL TEFL Certificate is.
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.
Not with ICAL TEFL. As you will be distance learning online, our overheads are significantly reduced. ICAL TEFL passes this saving on to our valued students. What you will receive is a full course for a fraction of the normal price - saving you money with better training.
