From beginner vocab like HELLO and GOODBYE you’ll study the tools to teach vocabulary and use them effectively so that your students can use it in the right context.

By the end of this module, you’ll also know your present continuous from your present simple tense. Most of all, you’ll be familiar and confident with grammatical terms.

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, audio stories and recordings, to reading articles, emails, facebook posts both inside and outside the classroom.

The course modules are detailed, informative and easy to comprehend. My experience during the 240 hour Expert TEFL was amazing, I was reminded of what a teacher's role is and how to successfully create a positive learning environment. I learned loads of content in this course and I would love to recommend it to anyone interested in becoming a TEFL certified teacher. However, the only thing I did not like was the fact that upon completion of the course you have multiple certificates, which is not a train smash, but I wish it would just be one certificate for your 240 hour Expert course. Having said that, it's a course work taking, done at your own pace, at the comfort of your home.

I completed the 120 hour advanced TEFL course and I couldn't be more pleased with the result. I was a little hesitant before buying the course as I wasn't sure what it would be like to do this entirely online and how high the standard of teaching would be, but all of my concerns were totally unnecessary. I really enjoyed myself and my passion for teaching was reignited! I would encourage anyone who is considering the course to do it! I managed to complete it in 3 weeks and I don't at all feel like the course was rushed or dragged out. I'm very happy with my decision to go with PremierTEFL!
