5-Day Teaching Program – Invaluable Experience & Helpful Feedback:
Many people opt to take our online training course as opposed to our in-person course due to time and other constraints. We have worked hard to make our online training effective and in-depth, emulating our in-person, immersion course to every extent possible. However, one area where the course simply cannot replace the in-person training course is in the teaching practices, where trainees teach to actual EFL students in front of our seasoned trainers who provide feedback and grade the trainees every step of the way. Now, the option to come to our school to take part in this vital step of your learning process is available to all of our students.

More Practice Hours With Real EFL Students:
If you are thinking about enrolling in our online TEFL TESOL training course, we highly recommend that you take the 5-Day Teaching Practice Program. Live teaching practice in a real classroom environment is one of the final and most important steps to becoming an effective, successful instructor. We believe it is so essential that our teaching practices are 10 hours minimum, greatly surpassing the international standard, which recommends 6 hours. Also, we cannot emphasize more how important it is to have these teaching practices in as realistic an environment as possible. Teaching practice for some providers means teaching your peers or some providers count team teaching as formal teaching practices. We do not. You will teach real students individually and be observed and critiqued for ten full classes by your personal tutor. We do not promote team teaching, as it is not a realistic EFL setting. Other providers will offer 6 hours of observed teaching practice per trainee group and not per individual trainee. You are individually observed by several professional trainers.
Excellent Training in a Beautiful Setting – Guadalajara, Mexico:
Our teaching practices run over one long weekend (Thursday through Tuesday with an off day on Sunday) each month in our school in the beautiful and historic downtown area of Guadalajara – Mexico’s second largest city, located 300 km from the Pacific coast in Central Western Mexico. Guadalajara is known for its enchanting beauty, historic architecture and very affordable and excellent amenities and accommodations. While attending our school you will not only receive top notch training, you will also receive it in this beautiful city, which has a fantastic flavor of local culture as well as excellent restaurants and an exciting nightlife.
