We offer a 168 hour, combined level 5 TEFL Course in Chicago, which will qualify you to teach English as a foreign language in most countries around the world.
The course comes in 2 parts, online and in-classroom. Some students finish the online element in 4-6 weeks working on the course full time, but we give you 6 months access to the online course so you can fit your studies around your existing commitments. Your 6 months of online enrolment starts from the day you pay for the course.
The course is broken down in to 10 units, covering everything you need to know to start teaching English. The course is assessed with a mix of short tests and coursework and is equal to 168 hours of study. Every student is assigned an online tutor who you can contact throughout your course for any academic enquiries.
You will have 20-hours in the classroom as part of your TEFL course in Chicago. This covers all of the practical side of teaching, so there is lots of group work and the course is very interactive. You will also get the opportunity to practice teaching some short lessons and receive feedback from an experienced TEFL tutor.
The online course consists of ten mandatory units. All ten units are exam-assessed and for units 5, 7 and 10 there are also coursework-assessed assignments. You get 6-months access to the course, but some students complete their qualification within 4 – 6 weeks (when studied full time).
What’s more, all enrollments on our level 5 course include a free top-up course in Teaching Young Learners, Teaching Business English or Teaching Online & 1:1.
