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.

FAQs

How long does a TEFL course take?

The time taken to complete a TEFL course depends on how much study time you can dedicate each week and which duration of course or training

Can I go back to study in the same place where I left?

Yes absolutely, the easiest way to pick up right where you left off is to bookmark that page. Typically this is a star icon in your browser

Can I get help securing a TEFL job?

Questions and Answers

Do I need a degree to take a course?

You do not need a degree to enrol in a course. However, a degree is required in certain countries to get a work visa as a Tefl teacher. If you do not have a degree, there are plenty of schools across the world that are open to hiring you, as well as online teaching platforms.

To sign up for a course you should be fluent or native English speaking, have completed High School education to the age of 18, and have excellent written skills.

What certificate is best?

The best courses will match your personal needs. Knowing what you’re looking for will help narrow your options and allow you to choose faster.

  • Do you want self-study or in-class experience?
  • Want to study on an app?
  • Expect a personal study tutor?

All of these factors will impact your decision. Use our Course Picker Tool to narrow your course choice.

Employers seek 120 hours of training for entry-level teaching jobs. This is the industry standard and the minimum amount of TEFL training you should undertake.

At Premier, our most popular courses are our Level 5 qualifications which include certified teaching practice. They help you qualify for more jobs, and better pay and are trusted and respected globally by employers.

The best training providers will have:

  • A range of courses to pick from
  • Excellent customer reviews
  • Knowledgeable staff to advise you
  • Heaps of alumni testimonials
  • Quick response times
  • External accreditation
  • A clear path to employment for you to follow once you graduate

How quickly can I complete a 120 hour course?

Most learners complete 120 hours of training in around 3 – 6 weeks, depending on how much free time they have to study.

As a self-guided course, you do not have to wait for scheduled classes, classmates, or seminars. You can complete the 10 modules of coursework in your own time, at your preferred pace.

You will have 6 months of study time access from the day that you enrol and can add more time if you run out.

No matter which course you enrol on, unless you have teaching experience you might feel daunted by the idea of taking your first class. This is completely normal and it’s recommended to take an instructor-led teaching practice class to boost your confidence and presentation skills.

Do I need teaching experience?

You do not need any previous teaching experience to become a teacher. Expect an entry-level pay grade if you are a first-time teacher.

Many online platforms will supply full training for newly recruited teachers plus a comprehensive bank of lesson plans and resources to use. Experienced teachers can expect to earn higher hourly rates of pay.

Jump a pay grade by completing our instructor-led teaching practice class. You will get a certificate to attach to job applications.

How can I contact my online personal tutor?

If you need academic help or support you will be able to email your personal tutor. You can simply reply to the welcome email that you are sent a few days after signing up.

Additionally you can find support on the online community forum from fellow learners and our academic team. Our weekly drop-in live support sessions on Zoom are also popular.

Is a 120 hour certificate enough?

Yes, 120 hours of training is the industry standard for entry-level jobs. If you want to teach online, this is a popular course to take.

If you do not have any previous teaching experience, add our instructor-led teaching practice class to your training package to satisfy your future employers.

To further improve your employment chances and teaching skills you should study professional development courses in areas such as coaching IELTS students or business English.

In a competitive job market, we recommend taking a Level 5  course which will typically get you hired more quickly for better paying jobs.

How long do I get to complete the course?

You will have 6 months of study time access from the day that you enroll and can add more time if you run out.

Can the 120 hour course be completed entirely on a smartphone?

Yes! You can complete the 120-hour online course entirely on your smartphone.

You can either study the 120-hour course by downloading the Premier app to your smartphone or by logging into your Course Dashboard on your phone’s internet browser, we recommend using Chrome.

Is TEFL hard to pass?

Premier courses have a 99% pass rate, and 95% of our customers would recommend us.

120-hour fast track courses are pitched around the High School level and require a score of 80% to pass. The end-of-module tests can be retaken if you don’t pass the first time around. 

A Level 5 course has the same difficulty level of the first year of university and requires more commitment and effort to pass. The essay-style questions on a Level 5 course will be reassessed if the answers do not meet the required standard.

Before I even start - TEFL premium is by far the best organisation & academic institution you'll ever find! Studied through various other... but none come even close! As usual I've yet again managed to contact Premier TEFL with a query and as usual they've helped me out not withstanding my medical condition hindering my ongoing progress! In my case, SHAUNA HURLEY was not only super helpful but also very knowledgeable & professional! It makes such a difference to your self-esteem when someone fights for your academic progress! SHAUNA took great pride in helping me with my issue/problem efficiently & successfully! Sometimes both Medical & I.T. issues can/will hinder my positive & gradual progress in my selected courses. With agents like SHAUNA HURLEY, your problems will go bye-bye very quickly & efficiently! (This much I can promise you!) As usual & as stated before I'm very happy to say out loud that I am proud to be a member of the International TEFL family! I also appreciate every single member of this special group of people which make it an amazing international family of wonderful human beings to belong too! Thanks for fighting for me & showing me grace/mercy Shauna! You showed me divine help that no-one ever has! You helped me in ways I can't ever begin to describe & it's people like you that this world needs more off! What an absolute legend you are for helping me & what a wonderful human being you are too! Cheers! Thank You, God bless you & have a great week/weekend! 💯🙏😇👍✨read more

I was very pleased with the 10 Hour Classroom Methodology Course I took. The instructor, Michelle Kaufman, was exceptional. Michelle made... everyone feel comfortable right away. She was extremely knowledgeable about teaching English and her experience showed when answering questions and giving advice. Michelle taught us by "doing", meaning she had us do a typical lesson both in English and then in another language to show us the steps involved in an online lesson. We, the students, were given all the information and encouragement to create our own lessons and present them to our group. Thank you Michelle for creating an inclusive atmosphere and sharing your knowledge. I would highly recommend this course to anyone who is planning or thinking about teaching online.read more
