120 hour Advanced TEFL Course

Modules One-Three:

Module One: How to Make Sense of Teacher/Learner Needs

Understanding your students’ language abilities and why they want to learn English. Get to know the basic principles behind TEFL teaching.

Module Two: How to Understand and Use Grammatical & Teaching Terminology

By the end of this module, you’ll know your present continuous from your present simple tense no problem. Most of all, you’ll be familiar and confident with grammatical terms. We know that grammar can be intimidating for new teachers – it won’t be at the end of module 2!

Module Three: How to Plan Your Syllabus & Lessons

Being the best teacher you can be is down to planning. On this course you’ll get the planning techniques that will not only save you time but will ensure that your lessons run smoothly. You’ll gain students’ respect which of course is great for reviews (especially if you are teaching online).

Modules Four-Six:

Module Four: How to Teach Grammar

Now that you know grammatical terms, you’ll fly through this module on how to teach it. Breaking down your students’ English levels, you’ll know which grammatical term to teach and how to teach it. You’ll get so much useful information about how to prepare engaging grammatical building block lessons which work. Watching your students progress will be so exciting!

Module Five: How to Teach Vocabulary

Did you know that there are around 171,000 words in the English language? Don’t worry, you’ll only be asked to teach a few hundred of those! From beginner restaurant vocab like, MENU, PLATE, GLASS, MAINS to advanced business such as, INCOME, EXPENDITURE, RECRUITMENT. You’ll study the tools to teach vocabulary and use them effectively so that your students can use it in the right context.

Module Six: How to Teach Pronunciation 

Help your students speak English confidently by practicing pronunciation. This is the primary reason that they want to learn English from you. As a native speaker pronouncing a word like ‘enough’ is simple for you, not so with many other nationalities. On this course you’ll learn modern techniques to help your students sound as fluent as possible.

Modules Seven-Ten:

Module Seven: How to Teach Reading & Listening Skills

These are called ‘Receptive skills’ because the student is receiving language. By the end of this lesson, you’ll know the most effective ways to engage students in reading English and how to write it. This includes setting listening tasks to music, radio and recordings, to reading letters, emails, Facebook posts both inside and outside the classroom. Oh yes, you’ll be setting a lot of homework for your students!

Module Eight:  How to teach Writing & Speaking Skills

These are called ‘Productive skills’ because students produce language. You’ll learn plenty of useful ideas about how to get your students up on their feet and chatting to you about hobbies, politics or story telling. You’ll also get help with how to teach your students to write English – at all levels, from favorite foods, to the economy in Spain.

Module Nine: How to Teach English for Specific Purposes

Your students have a reason why they want to learn English. You’ll learn how to differentiate these different types of students and how to tackle their lessons. For example, how to teach teenagers, or business people or exam classes to help students get into universities in the US or UK. You’ll end lesson 9 armed with a breadth of knowledge about who you are teaching, why you are teaching them and what you should teach them.

Module Ten: How to Move from Learning to Earning

Here you’ll get up-to-date tips on the current employment market. Once you’ve secured your first job, in this module you’ll receive details about how to get the best career ‘teachers toolkit’ ready to jump into any job online or abroad.

I chose 168 hours course initially but it was too hard for me so I contacted one of the staffs and asked if I can change the course. They... were very helpful and quickly responded to my request. With the 120 hours course I learned lots of new practical skills that I will be able to use when I teach English :)read more

I'd definitely recommend Premier to others, everything is very organized and the curriculum is perfectly paced for self-studying.There's a... quiz after every module and most of the questions are open-ended, so it's quite a lot of work, but it's worth it, because since it's required to pass all of the assessments to get the certificate it means that the certificate itself is of high quality.And aside from the certificate, the material was very helpful and got me to improve on my teaching skills by applying what I learn in class.Upon reflecting on it I realize that the teaching techniques I'd developed on my own through time and experience were already mentioned in the course, so I'd imagine that the new things I learned in a few hours just by taking the course would've taken me years to learn on my own from experience.But there's one problem.. They don't mention at the begining that you have to pay 53$ for the digital certificate, just to get the PDF. It's really annoying finiding out like that at the end of the course, but if you already know before purcahsing the course then it's not as bad, so make sure you add 53$ to the price of every course you might consider when you're browsing, just generally add an extra 53$ to your budget before getting into anything.read more
