A description of the blended online TEFL course with teaching practice

Blended TEFL course online learning

You begin the EBC blended TEFL course by taking the EBC online TEFL course.

Blended TEFL course teaching practice

After passing the EBC online TEFL course you will take the 80 hour teaching practice course to learn the practical skills you will need to teach effectively.

The course is intensive and includes 16 hours of teaching practice, 4 hours observing experienced teachers and the completion of 6 written assignments.

Teaching practice is observed and critiqued. You will deliver lessons that you will create to non-native English speakers. You will get feedback so that you know how you are progressing and help you prepare for the moment when you go solo in your teaching career.

You will be taught how to communicate effectively using different methods and media. The EBC training style demands active and pro-active student participation. Your ability to work in a team is essential.

An essential part of our TEFL TESOL teaching method is the ability to explain and teach in English supported by classroom aids, body language etc. For this reason you are not allowed to use the local language when you are teaching.

Your final grade is based on 3 key areas:

  • Teaching practice performance
  • Successfully completed written assignments and lesson plans
  • Professional development
