Program Overview

Program Description:
The Canterbury International TEFL Certificate course is an economical, time saving option for people who want to learn how to teach English as a second language as well as to immediately start work teaching in a foreign country. Unlike other TEFL programs, Canterbury devotes a significant amount of time concentrating on the techniques of teaching children. Every trainee participates in eight separate sessions of 2.5 hours each, or 20 hours total of children practice teaching. Considering that 50 % of the job offers around the world involve teaching children, this is another important point to consider when shopping for a TEFL program. Many TEFL programs, including the CELTA, cover this topic in passing, if at all. We feel this is an oversight. Moreover, Canterbury also dedicates a substantial amount of time directed toward the techniques of teaching business English to professionals. Again, all trainees participate in eight separate sessions of 2.5 hours each, or 20 hours total of business English practice teaching.

The course is a four week,given once a month that usually begins during the first week of the month. It consists of forty hours learning theory in the mornings; forty hours of lesson planning, role plays, presentations, peer teaching and critiques in the afternoons; twenty hours of observed practice classes; and twenty hours of paid internship practice teaching classes out in the field in the evenings to make sure students are prepared for ESL teaching.

The Canterbury International TEFL Certificate is an internationally recognized qualification to teach English abroad. The Canterbury International TEFL Certificate Course is fully accredited by the College of Teachers in London, England. Canterbury is a Centre of the College of Teachers that provides accredited courses and abides by its Code of Practice. In addition, Canterbury is a member of TESOL, The College of Teachers, as well as a member of the Madrid Chamber of Commerce, and has been awarded the Golden Laurel in 1999 from the Madrid City Hall and Radio Turismo, the Golden Medal from the Province of Madrid in 2000 and the National Merit Award of Spain in 2001 for the excellence of its programs. Canterbury professors currently teach abroad teaching in Asia, Europe, Africa, and Latin America with our internationally accredited TEFL Certificate.
