    Our most popular course!

    Immerse yourself in the land of lakes and volcanoes

    while gaining real experience teaching in our school

    How

    This intensive course is composed of two focuses: lecture & practice

    • The lectures consist of widely accepted teaching methodologies, techniques to help you in the day-to-day classroom, as well as insights into the English language such as phonology and pronunciation. Both theory sessions and workshops are designed so that you take part in dynamic activities and discussions where you are encouraged to actively participate and learn ‘through doing’. We can guarantee you won’t be bored!

     

    • During your time here, you will also take part in foreign language classes to give you the opportunity to see things from a students’ perspective, enabling you to identify a number of needs you will need to cater to when teaching your lessons.

     

    • The majority of the course will focus on the invaluable teaching practices. Each lesson will have a specific topic, either grammar or vocabulary, and be taught to English students ranging from beginner to the intermediate level. Throughout the planning process, your instructor will provide detailed analysis and insight into each aspect of the lesson. This, followed with multiple test-runs, ensures your lesson will be ready to go.

     

    • After each teaching practice, a critique session is held where both trainees and trainer sit together, exchange constructive feedback and reflect on the different lessons they observed. Through reflection of your classes and other classes you observe, you’ll acquire your own personal style and philosophy for your future teaching career.

    Why

     

    • This is the highest quality TEFL course you can take without going to University. Right from day one you’ll be gaining hands-on experience. It isn’t just a lecture and theory, you’ll be having plenty of dry runs practicing, designing and creating activities with your fellow students. By the time it comes to your first teaching practice you’ll be more than ready to deliver a fun, dynamic and effective lesson. It’s a tough course, packing a lot of information into just 4 weeks, but it’s also one of the most enriching, fun and worthwhile learning experiences you’ll ever have!

     

    • Employers worldwide prefer that their teachers have this type of certification and without it you may be limited to which jobs you can apply for.

     

    • Over 4 weeks, you’ll combine theory study and practical experience to become a TESOL certified teacher! You’ll observe our qualified teachers and other students to see how theory is put into practice before developing your own lessons. During the planning stages, your instructor will assist you every step of the way, providing detailed and insightful feedback so you’ll feel fully confident when preforming your lessons. All of our students have remarked that this is the most challenging but most rewarding portion of the course and gave them immense confidence when applying for jobs around the world.

    Study at home for part of the course, then come to Nicaragua to finish

    How

    • During the online portion of the course, students will study different theories on various teaching methodologies and topics such as phonetics, student motivation, classroom management and how to teach grammar and vocabulary.

     

    • As a general guideline, most students complete the course within 2-5 months, however it can be completed in as little as 2 – 4 weeks.

     

    • For the finale of the program, you will spend two weeks in Nicaragua, committed solely to observation, lesson preparation and completing 6 teaching practices. You will observe experienced English teachers so you can see how the theory is put into practice, as well as other trainees, both of which offer valuable learner experience.

     

    • You own lessons will be either vocabulary or grammar focused with English students ranging from beginner to the intermediate level. Throughout the planning process, your instructor will provide detailed analysis and insight into each aspect of the lesson and help you build the confidence to successfully teach in front of a class. After each lesson, you will take part in a reflective feedback session, where you and your instructor will discuss your lesson and help you develop your own teaching style.

    Why

    • Everyone learns differently and some prefer to study at their own pace from the comfort of their own home. This option is perfect for those students who have a busy schedule and need more flexibility in order to take their TEFL training.

     

    • Quality schools may consider teaching applicants with solely online certificates as inferior to those who have a certificate that includes actual classroom teaching practice. This course gives you the best of both worlds! Cheaper than the 4 week course but covering all the same material, you’ll also have an invaluable 2 weeks of teaching practice in country.

     

    • This 140-hour program is designed so that you can study the basic mechanics of ESL teaching, classroom management, and phonetics from your home then travel to Nicaragua to complete 6 individual teaching practices over a two-week period. Before preforming your classes, every lesson will be developed with the help of your on-site instructor. They’ll guide you along every part of the lesson-planning process and give you detailed feedback through reflective sessions following each class.
