The Enjoy TEFL 120 and 180 Hour courses will cover the following units, which will be assessed in the form of self-marking activities and written assignments, which will be assessed by external tutors.
The sequence of sections is crucial for building knowledge and then applying knowledge to the learning environment.
Enjoy TEFL has designed the course so that you understand the basic principles of ESL, learn teaching skills, learn grammar, and learn how to plan and then apply all your knowledge to teach grammar, vocabulary, speaking, listening, reading and writing.
We feel positive that getting the knowledge first and then applying it will give you the most confidence on your first day of teaching.
The accredited Enjoy TEFL 120-hour and 180 Hour Online TEFL courses have the
following core aims for its learners.
A teacher will be able to assess the needs of learners within a cultural and social context. This applies to all levels of language learners.
A teacher will be able to use a number of teaching and learning strategies to meet these needs.
A teacher will be able to use affective skills and technology, where appropriate, to encourage lifelong learning.
A teacher will be able to reflect on their ability and, through reflection, develop strategies to improve their teaching and learning.
In order to achieve these aims, the learner will be assessed on the 120-hour and the 180 Hour Course using activities, tests and written assignments.
