With a smile. Really!
The 60-hour course is the foundation of the 120-hour course. It is, in fact, the first half of the course. The 120-hour course adds three modules for Business English, Teaching Standardized Examinations (TOEFL, IELTS, TOEIC and more) and Hospitality English.
This course focuses on teaching methodology and lesson planning as providing the structure for TEFL.
Special modules/sections help you understand the best ways to teach reading, writing, listening and pronunciation and more (see the list below).
Ten audio podcasts make learning easy and provide a more informal look at different topics ranging from student motivation and discipline to reading, writing, listening, pronunciation, methodology, lesson planning and more.
The podcasts are usually about 5-6 minutes long, though two approach 18 minutes.
In-the-classroom videos from the University of Oregon help illustrate teaching methods as they are applied in a real classroom. The videos are usually about 7-14 minutes long.
Topics of the course include:
EFL Teaching Methodology
EFL Lesson Planning
Teaching Reading Skills
Teaching Writing Skills
Teaching with Gestures
Discipline in the Classroom
Using Games in the EFL Classroom
This core curriculum will help you understand WHAT to teach your students, WHEN to teach it and HOW to teach it.

Most people complete the TEFL Professional course in three to six weeks. In theory, 120 hours is the amount of study and work time the course takes. If you are efficient and disciplined, you can probably finish it more quickly. Experienced teachers often do it in a few days.
Family and work responsibilities also affect how quickly you can complete the course.
If you pay through PayPal, you can start almost immediately. An automated email with a link to your resource page is sent you within minutes after you pay. If you do not receive it be sure to check your SPAM folder as email with links are sometimes assumed to be SPAM, especially by the Yahoo spam filter.
Certificates are usually printed within three business days after you complete your course. As soon as it is printed a scan of it is made and emailed to you. The hard copy is usually placed in the mail to you within a further 3-5 business days. How quickly it reaches you depends on where you are. For the USA you will usually receive the certificate within 1-2 weeks after it is mailed. International delivery usually takes about 3-4 weeks after it is mailed.
Most people don't have any trouble at all as the examination is an "open book" exam and you may even use it as a study guide. For the lesson plans we give you several examples of each area to review, so you have a good idea of what what are looking for.
All that said, if there is an issue with your work, we simple tell you what it is, tell you how to fix or where to find the solution and ask you to resubmit that part of your work. Our goal is your success and we will do our best to support you in learning and understanding the material for your course.
