We offer a world-renowned TEFL / TESOL certification course in China that equips you for the professional task of teaching English overseas, or in your home country. Our TEFL certification courses last for four weeks and have a very practical emphasis. There is no need to speak any language other than English, as our courses concentrate on training you to teach English with the international standard communicative approach – where English is the only language used in the classroom.

Our TEFL certification courses

Our TEFL certification courses are certainly demanding; however, we do everything within our power to encourage TEFL students to pass the course and to promptly acquire a teaching job abroad.

The TEFL course in China is divided into six main areas

1) Teaching Practice

This is the most practical and fundamental area of any TEFL training course. During the teaching practice sessions, trainees have the opportunity to teach real students of English and put into practice the skills learnt during the theoretical parts of the course.

2) Foreign Language Experience

During the course, trainees receive instruction in an unknown foreign language to help them reflect on the experience of being a learner. This session is extremely useful in creating empathy between the teacher and student and should help trainees to direct their own teaching.

3) Language Awareness

a) This area focuses on grammar and covers subjects such as parts of speech, the structure of tenses, conditionals and modals and other common grammar points. During these sessions trainees learn about these subjects as well as ways to teach them to their future students in the classroom.

b) This area also looks at the subject of phonology and covers phonemics, word and sentence stress, intonation and connected speech.

4) Student Profile

For this part of the course, each trainee is required to work with an individual student in order to work on things such as rapport building, error analysis, correction techniques and addressing individual student needs. Three meetings with the student are required to complete the profile, after which the trainee completes a one-to-one lesson with their student. The final stage is the completion of a written report regarding the lesson.

5) Teaching Techniques

This component of the course covers areas such as:

  • Lesson planning
  • Classroom management
  • Establishing rapport
  • Discipline in the classroom
  • Managing equipment and teaching aids
  • Creating materials
  • Correction techniques
  • Evaluation and testing
  • Teaching vocabulary
  • Teaching grammar
  • Teaching receptive skills (reading and listening)
  • Teaching productive skills (speaking and writing)
  • Games in the classroom
  • Songs in the classroom
  • Teaching beginner students
  • Teaching individual students

6) Materials Project

All trainees are required to create their own set of materials to be used during the teaching practice. These materials will be useful in future teaching environments and will help to instill the benefits of creativity and resourcefulness in relation to your lesson planning. The materials should be easily portable, durable and adaptable for different lesson points.

Once you have created your materials project you will present it to a course trainer and demonstrate how it will be used in the classroom. Your trainer will then provide advice and suggestions on how they can be improved and how they could be used in another context.

Apply Today

All applications from candidates aged 18 (younger ages may be considered in exceptional circumstances) and above will be considered for our English teaching courses. Our in-class TEFL courses are intensive, four-week programs; however, all trainees should still have sufficient time to explore the local area, experience the culture and to meet new people.

    TEFL Chongqing | TEFL China

    Our Chongqing TEFL training center gives you the opportunity to complete an in-class TEFL course in just three weeks and is the ideal choice for trainees who want to attend a classroom based course but are limited by time.

    Chongqing is a thriving city in southwest China which straddles the Yangzi River. The city is home to over 18 million people and is an important industrial center. Chongqing is famous for its spicy cuisine with Sichuan pepper used extensively. The most famous dish is Chongqing hot pot available in many hot pot restaurants around the city. There is even a yearly hot pot festival with more than 10,000 hot pot restaurants offering discounts to diners as well as interesting activities and ceremonies.

    The city has a fascinating history dating back to its founding 3,000 years ago. It served as the provisional capital of the country during the Second World War becoming known as “the City of Heroes”. Today the city is a major economic center and transport hub and is an increasingly popular destination for Chinese tourists due in part to its role as the gateway to the Three Gorges. Although Chongqing has a smaller western ex-pat population than might be expected for a city of this size, it does have a number of bars, restaurants and clubs catering to western tastes.

    Chongqing is well connected to the rest of the country through its air, rail and road transport network and the international airport connects the city to several international destinations including Los Angeles, London, Moscow and Bangkok. Travelling around the city is easy with underground, bus and monorail services forming the city’s transport infrastructure.
