Why take the Teaching English Online course?

You want to travel and make some money while you do it. Of course you do! While this may seem like a far-off dream to some, thanks to the abundance of online English teaching jobs, it’s now closer than ever for many.

But don’t get stuck thinking you can just connect via Skype with an eager student and be able to actually help them improve their language proficiency. It doesn’t quite work like that. You need to learn how to succeed at developing and delivering effective English lessons online, and it probably wouldn’t hurt to learn some tips for getting hired as an online English teacher. That’s where our 30 hour Teaching English Online course comes in!

Designed for participants who are studying or graduated from a comprehensive TEFL course or who have experience teaching English to second language learners. It’s geared to help you when connecting digitally with your students, as you’ll more likely have awareness of the key differences in teaching online versus teaching in real life or in a classroom.

If an exciting, flexible and rewarding career is what you’re looking for then this is definitely the course for you. The dream of continual profitable travel, both experience and wallet wise, is for you then read on, sign up, and don’t miss out! Equally, for the entrepreneurial spirited among you, who plan teach ESL from home, this is the perfect way to be the master of your own schedule.
