I am really enjoying the Course, and [almost] overwhelmed with the amount of valuable information given! Mind you, I am not just reading the text of your Course, but diving down all the suggested avenues of extra information gathering / learning processes so any 'overwhelming' is entirely self-imposed! Thank you(Alex) for the time you have taken to mark my Modules and for your valuable input. I notice you have taken extra time to suggest ways to expand on my ideas & I really appreciate that.
- Jane Howarth
Thanks so much for everything - you've been absolutely wonderful! Clare was a great, patient tutor, and I got all my feedback well within the turnaround time you gave. I have no complaints.

GLOBAL ENGLISH:  We’re proud of our online TESOL accreditation and of how we have helped thousands of people from all walks of life get started on their English teaching careers. Our innovative courses, whether it’s our most advanced 250 hr level 5 or a TESOL with specialism, are designed to help you stand out from the crowd.  Our message is: don’t settle for a generic TESOL; choose an externally accredited course from a reputable provider which offers you that extra ‘edge’ in employment. We’ve trained teachers from all corners of the world, from Mongolia to Mexico and Norway to the New Zealand!  Plus, since we have been around so long, we’ve got the TESOL job contacts and resume know-how to help you get where you want to go.  We’d love to help you get started too.

When complete, simply upload your modules via your student area and get feedback from your tutor.  Throughout the course you’ll be able to access live teaching segments, podcasts and links to some of the top EFL material on the web today to keep you interested & motivated.  This 4 module online course with full tutorial support, 24/7 access and a 30 hour how to teach young learner component.

Your 20 hour Teaching Practice can consist of any in-class help you give; from assisting a lead teacher to observing classes, as long as you lead a class for at least 6 hours.

Time log form – completed by you and signed by the sponsoring institution confirming your completion of 20 hours in-class time. 6 hours must be you leading a class teaching English. The remaining hours can consist of being a class assistant or observing a class (minimum of 2 students per class). Please note, home tutoring 1-1 cannot be included in this class since it is vital for the integrity of the programme that your TP experience is verifiable by a 3rd party.

Self-evaluation form - submit a guided reflection on a lesson you have delivered. You will be assigned a Global English personal tutor for advice, guidance and who will also mark your self-evaluation.

Where can I get teaching practice?

It is important that your teaching practice is classroom based and can be verified by a 3rd party ‘host’ of some description for the validity of your certificate. This is why tutoring 1-1 privately/online does not count towards TP under this scheme.

There is a huge demand to learn English and in most locations worldwide there are numerous opportunities to teach English in the paid or voluntary sector.

The documentation we need your sponsoring organization to provide for us is not onerous! Essentially, they will just need to allow you to help out (and allow you to lead a class for 6 hours of TP) and sign to verify your participation. 

Organizations offering TP options:

•    Faith-based organizations, churches and ‘international cafes’
•    Local government - often organizes or knows of volunteer schemes teaching English universities and colleges with or without specific ESL departments
•    Libraries
•    Community centres based around cultural groups (find these through the internet on local search engines) 
•    Language schools

  • Highly recommend using TEFL Source if you want to get certified to teach English as a foreign language. I'm currently travelling in SE Asia so I wanted a course that I could work on from my ipad. TEFL Source had lots of great options and the prices were more competitive than other places I looked. I can't wait to start teaching now!Jon Sobolewski
  • I stumbled upon TEFL Source while I was researching the EPIK teaching program in South Korea. I didn't realize there were so many course types and companies out there. TEFL Source made it easy to browse through the different programs, although many aspects of the programs are comparable, and find a suitable course that included teaching practice. I'd tell you I'd use them again but I doubt I'll need another TEFL certification. All in all, a happy customer. Jenny Bae
  • So far so good! Enrolled in a 120hr course last week and already completed the first 2 modules. Kudos to the TEFL Source staff for walking me through the different options and taking the time to explain what I needed, and what I didn't for that matter, in order to teach over in Korea.Rhea Csergei
