The course is divided into two units, and focuses on video footage from two teaching scenarios. The videos are designed to enable you to practice turning the theory and knowledge you have gained during the course into practical teaching skills.

The first video shows the teacher in an elementary class. She is new to the classroom and you’ll look at some of the common errors new teachers make.

The second video will show the teacher a little later in the teaching year with a pre-intermediate class and will show you how she has progressed. You’ll also learn that, even with some experience, teachers still make mistakes and how best to learn from them.

Each video is broken into short clips for you to work on. After every section, there are practice activities to complete that will make sure you understand and are clear about what you’ve learnt. There are also downloads including reflection and action tasks, further practice tasks and knowledge reference sheets that you should print out to build a fantastic bank of training and teacher materials by the end of your TEFL training.

Each course unit contains 4-8 bite-sized sections. The sections will be a mix of video tuition where you’re guided by the course presenter, classroom footage and interviews with teachers and learners, reading sections with diagrams, illustrations and tables for you to study.

At the end of each unit you’ll watch real classroom footage of our teachers and students in action. They’ll give you a flavour of what life in the classroom is really like and the best practices of how to teach English.

After every section, there are practice activities to complete that will make sure you understand and are clear about what you’ve learnt. There are also downloads for every section including reflection and action tasks, further practice tasks and knowledge reference sheets that you should print out to build a fantastic bank of training and teacher materials by the end of your TEFL training.
