Some people prefer the traditional classroom courses in order to get familiar with the place they would like to teach and be able to interact face to face with their teachers and peers.
Teaching English as a foreign language (TEFL) is a constantly growing field with opportunities for both new and experienced teachers. If you need initial teaching certification or you are already certified and would like to enhance your skills, a world of training options is available.
Choose from classroom-based training, university-level online training, or self-study online TEFL courses.
For those interested in qualifying for the very best and highest paying jobs, the Bridge IDELTOnline course offers the academic rigor of a traditional, classroom-based TEFL course 100% online. This interactive, instructor-led course also includes an optional teaching practicum.
