TEFL certification courses have traditionally been offered either as 4-week, classroom-based courses or as 100% online or distance learning. We understand the benefits and drawbacks to both types of study. In order to offer greater variety and flexibility for course participants, we combined the best of both methods of study and training into one unique course. The course comprises of two elements of study: the first being online and the second being in-class study, training and teaching at one of our training centers. The course offers the opportunity to study the theories of teaching from the comfort of your own home or office, at your own pace, from anywhere in the world, through the online component of the course and then the opportunity to put theory into practice through further training and teaching at one of our training locations.
The great advantage of this TEFL course is flexibility. The online component of the course allows you the time to absorb the theories of TEFL teaching. Attendance at one of our training centers then gives you the opportunity to put this theory into practice. The Combined TEFL course is ideal for those that do not cope well with or do not perform to their full potential in intensive study programs. The Combined TEFL course requires only one or two weeks’ attendance at one of our locations rather than the traditional four weeks.
You can complete the online component of the course over a period that is suitable for you. The online component can be completed in any period from two weeks to six months – depending on how quickly, or slowly you wish, or are able to work through the course. The online component of the course comes with full online tutor support.
