Module 1: Planning a Lesson The key to a great lesson is watertight planning, and through your TEFL career lesson plans will help you massively. Learning to plan properly will mean you're well on the way to great teaching from the second you step in the classroom - and you'll have something concrete to help with those first day nerves!
It makes sense to start at the beginning, so in the first module you'll learn about teaching methods, what to include in a lesson plan, how to set out a lesson plan and adapting your lesson for the different types of learner you might encounter.

In this section, you'll learn all about how to structure your lessons and how to present topics in a digestible way.  You'll also get a refresher on the 3 main topics you'll teach: vocabulary, grammar and the 4 skills (reading, writing, listening and speaking), so you're totally equipped for teaching your students in lessons they'll always remember.

You'll also learn how to support individual students' needs, and deal with any problems that come up (unfortunately, some are inevitable!).

  • Creating a good teaching environment
  • Helping students learn
  • Making it work in practice
  • Check your knowledge: making it work
  • Section 3 test

Once you've submitted, we won't keep you hanging around: our expert tutors will give you detailed feedback within 7 days, and we'll send you out your certificate within 28 days (though as a small and nimble business we always try to beat this!).

20 hour classroom course Now it's time to get physical!
