What is TEFL?

This acronym stands for “Teaching English as a Foreign Language”. This term is used when English is being taught in a country where it isn’t the native language, such as in Spain. Similarly, another term is used, TESOL – Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages.

Course Content

The course is divided into three areas: observed teaching practice, input sessions and project work.

Teaching Practice: You will be divided into teaching practice groups on the first day, and begin teaching practice on the second or third day. Classes are followed by feedback with your tutor and teaching practice group. Our experienced tutors understand your needs and will give you support and valuable advice.

Input sessions: These are designed to cover language awareness, lesson planning, methods and techniques for teaching as well as the grammar and phonology of the English language.

Project work: You will need to complete three projects which will be examined by Trinity.

Who is the course for?
