The Flying Teachers TEFL Course (Online)

An introduction to the teaching of English as a foreign language

This is a 15-hour course that prepares you to teach English at pre-intermediate and upper-intermediate levels. You learn how to plan and deliver effective vocabulary, reading, listening and grammar lessons. You also learn how to manage groups online and in face-to-face teaching.

This course is suitable for people who can speak English at level C1 and would like to understand how English Language Teaching works. The course could also be a refresher for people who have not had any training for a period of time.

The main advantage is that you learn all the basic lesson planning and teaching principles in a short period of time. This enables you to put what you have learned into practice in The Flying Teachers Supervised Teaching Practice Programme.

Reference of a teacher

I must say, I am so impressed with the courses and resources that Flying Teachers provides. My brother taught for many years as a teacher at another prominent language teaching company from Switzerland, and he had to create most of the material himself, whereas I open up the lesson plan, and there's even a quizlet study set to match the activities! Awesome!
