The course is 12 weeks long, and trainees must work through the course as a group, completing assignments weekly. However, the course provides flexibility during the week to access the course and complete assignments when it is convenient for you.
In order to take this course you must be at least 18 years old with a minimum of a high school diploma or the equivalent.
If you are not a native English speaker, you will be expected to show proof of English fluency at a C1 level or higher, according to the Common European Framework, upon enrollment. Your English level must be verified with the results of a recently taken English proficiency test (showing the equivalent to an IELTS test score of at least 7.0) or via an English proficiency test administered by Bridge.
You will also be required to purchase a textbook for the IDELT – Online: The Practice of English Language Teaching, by Jeremy Harmer (5th edition, with DVD). This textbook can be ordered online and shipped worldwide by most major book distribution companies.
