It should go without saying that our in-class TESOL course provides a very high level of practical training. However, we also do all we can to include as much practical content as possible in our online TESOL courses. Whichever type of course study you choose, you will cover a wide range of theory subjects throughout your training. This will include all the main topics that new teachers need to be aware of before they set foot in their first real classroom. Wherever possible, we make each subject as realistic and relevant to real life teaching as we can. Subjects that are covered in this manner include fundamental areas of teaching such as lesson planning, classroom management, and testing procedures. We cover all these vital areas in some depth to ensure you receive comprehensive coverage of both the theory and the practicalities of English language teaching.
Another way that we add extra depth to our written course materials is by also including access to an extensive video library with many of our online TESOL courses. This wide selection of videos should really help your understanding of how to plan and deliver top quality lessons in the classroom. If you want to take the practical element of your course to the next level you can also add a teaching practice element. Our 150-hour TESOL course with teaching practice starts with the standard 120-hour online course and then concludes with several hours of real teaching practice in a school or language center of your choice. The teaching practice elements will be evaluated remotely and a TESOL certificate that references your practical teaching hours will be issued upon successful completion of both parts of the course.
What Should I Ask in a TESOL Interview?
Whichever route to TESOL certification you decide is best for you, you will probably have to have at least one job interview before you get to teach for real. Depending on the circumstances, the interview could take place face to face or it might be conducted via a video messaging app or even a standard telephone. For ideas on some of the more important questions you should ask in an interview, take a look at our FAQ: What questions should I ask a TESOL employer?
What Will I Be Asked in a TESOL Interview
Although it is a good idea to have a list of questions to ask in an interview, it is also important to be prepared to answer the questions that the employer is likely to ask. Unfortunately, every interview is different so it is impossible to predict exactly what they will want to know. However, there are a few common questions that usually come up.
