*** 20 HOUR ONLINE TEACHING PRACTICE ***

The online teaching practice is taken with the largest online English school in the world. You will teach one to one and small groups and you will be mentored by an experienced teacher.

Here is an example of a lesson you may be asked to prepare and teach:
•    Level: Elementary
•    Topic: Where I live
•    Target Structures: There is/are; prepositions of place; quantifiers- some, any, a few, a lot
•    Vocabulary: Relevant adjectives to describe a town/city; places/buildings in a town/city

The INTESOL Online Teaching Practice is a totally flexible, convenient method of earning a combined TEFL qualification COMPLETELY ONLINE.

Every session you teach must be treated as if you are teaching a regular class. Therefore, audio and visual distractions must not interfere with the quality of the session. No phones, televisions, radios, loud fans, people, cars on the street, pets, or any noise should be audible in the room when you are teaching.

Also, your background must be a plain background. Most teachers will arrange their desks so their backs are facing plain walls - no doors, pictures, windows. Other teachers put up a white curtain or sheet to create a plain background. This is very important as this will facilitate a professional image of you and also allow the clients to focus on your teaching.

Refer to the 'How it Works' tab for complete Teaching Practice details and requirements.

Amazing! Our trainer was extremely knowledgeable and passionate about all aspects of ESOL teaching. Always calm and able to answer any questions put to her Support was excellent even when our trainer was very busy she would stop and help. I will highly recommend both the course and the hotel to anyone interested in a TESOL course.

Tutor was exceptional! Extremely knowledgeable and able to convey material in a simple manner. Extremely patient as well. Course content was diverse. The range of topics covered was perfect. From what to teach, how to teach, to what we do when we leave here.

I’ve enjoyed working with my tutor, Vince Ferrer, and I greatly appreciate his comments and suggestions. I hope I can be the effective teacher that he has nurtured me to be! There is hopefully a teaching job in South Korea for me so my TESOL certificate will be of great use to me. Many thanks.

Testimonials

  • Highly recommend using TEFL Source if you want to get certified to teach English as a foreign language. I'm currently travelling in SE Asia so I wanted a course that I could work on from my ipad. TEFL Source had lots of great options and the prices were more competitive than other places I looked. I can't wait to start teaching now!Jon Sobolewski
  • Overall I'm quite satisfied with my experience with TEFL Source. They're not the end providers of the courses but they do offer lots of useful information, more than other sites I was checking, and their staff was quick to respond to my onslaught of questions! Also saved some money on the course I wanted which was good for my wallet :) Anton G.
  • So far so good! Enrolled in a 120hr course last week and already completed the first 2 modules. Kudos to the TEFL Source staff for walking me through the different options and taking the time to explain what I needed, and what I didn't for that matter, in order to teach over in Korea.Rhea Csergei
