Taste of TEFL - English Language Teaching Taste of TEFL

The TEFL International Taste of TEFL is a great introduction to English Language Teaching and ideal if you are unsure about committing to a full TEFL course. Covering twice the hours and twice the content of shorter weekend courses, the Taste of TEFL will introduce you to the world of teaching English and provide you with the skills and knowledge you need to teach your first lesson.

Key Features

  • 40 hours of training over a week or 2 weekends
  • Affordable & flexible
  • Option to extend to the PELT Cert. TESOL

Your course includes 40 hours of training with one of our teacher trainers where you will be introduced to the concepts and context of teaching English. During this time you will learn about:

  • Foreign Language Acquisition

  • Materials Development
  • Lesson Planning & Preparation
  • Vocabulary Expansion
  • Communicative Activities
  • Theatre Techniques
  • Peer & Observed Teaching Skills

During the course you will be guided through the process of planning, preparation, delivery and reflection of a lesson and be given feedback on your performance at each stage.

Course Materials

Throughout your course you will be given materials and resources that will provide the basis of your input sessions as well as supporting you in your individual studies. Key resources will include the following:

  • Practical Teaching Skills & Concepts
  • Language Awareness & Grammar
  • Phonetics

The Taste of TEFL programme covers the same course content as the first 40 hours of the PELT Cert. TESOL. This means that once you have completed the Taste of TEFL you can extend your studies to the full PELT Certificate TESOL if you decide that English teaching is for you.

All you have to do to earn the full PELT Cert. TESOL is complete 40 hours of the teaching practice and complete the required assignments. Once you have done this you will have the qualification and experience needed to get your first teaching job.
