TEFL TESOL Online Courses - TEFL TESOL In-class Courses - What is the difference?


Both the 120 hour TEFL/TESOL online course and the four week TEFL/TESOL in-class course cover the same academic content, i.e. grammar, phonology, teaching theories and methodologies. The difference between the two courses is the actual teaching practice component in the in- class course. During the in-class course trainees are given the opportunity to complete a number of observed teaching practice sessions. By having this practical teaching experience you are improving your job prospects.

This unit was about being prepared by way of a lesson play. It demonstrated how to do an ESA lesson about animals and was quite involved. It gave learning objectives, teacher objectives and evaluation of the class which was very valuable to a teacher. It highlighted the need to have a back up plan and that not all teachers will use the same format depending mostly on their experience.This unit is about understanding English grammar. It goes through different parts of speech and illustrates how they are correctly used in a sentence. What I ultimately learned from this lesson is that English grammar is complex and can be difficult to comprehend for non-English speakers. It is important for teachers to use different teaching methods to help with language acquisition.
