Q2. How many people will there be in the Cardiff TEFL classroom course?
A: There is a maximum class capacity of 20 and a minimum of 5 people per classroom.

How long do I have to complete my TEFL course?

This is dependent on which type of TEFL Org certification you wish to gain, for example, a 140 hour combined TEFL course (one of our Premier TEFL courses). The 20-hour weekend course will take two days over a weekend.

For the 120-hour online part of the course, it normally takes about 16 to 20 weeks to complete, however, you do have up to a full six months to complete your online learning. If you can spend a lot of time working through the online courses it is possible to complete the course with a month.

Do I need any additional qualifications to do TEFL?
A: TEFL courses are open to everyone; you do not need any qualifications or teaching experience. The only requirement is to be a native English speaker or to have a fluent level of spoken and written English. If you do not have any previous teaching experience, we recommend at least 120 hours of training to ensure you are as confident and well versed in TEFL as possible for when you step into your first lesson. A minimum of 120 hours of training also makes you eligible for the widest range of TEFL jobs as this is a requirement for many employers.

Certain countries request a BA degree for work visa purposes, but if you don’t hold a degree there are still plenty of TEFL opportunities out there.

Our approach

It’s hands on!   During our TEFL Cardiff courses, our experienced trainers explain and demonstrate where appropriate, but we make sure our students get involved as much as possible. The best way to learn to TEFL is to TEFL, so look forward to lesson planning, games, and taking part in activities created by other people on the course.

You will create your very own lessons and have the chance to teach your peers. The course will enable you to fully understand how to adapt your lessons to suit different age groups and English levels.
