Free 120 hour TEFL (teaching English as a foreign language) course @ thetefluniversity

Found 24th Feb 2014
I took a combined TEFL course (20 contact hours and 120 online hours) a while ago, and while I wouldn't want to miss the face-to-face aspect of the lessons, as well as getting online feedback on my work, this might be a good alternative or add-on.

You can download the course in different formats, including pdf and mobi (for Kindle) here: thetefluniversity.com/dow…tml

After the online course, if you want to take a certificate, that will set you back 49 USD = £30.

Have some heat. This is a great freebie.

I have a TEFL cert, but this is great to brush up on the important bits. heat!!!

Great, thank you

Thanks

Heat added, great as a confidence builder, however, from experience these online TEFL course are not really accepted anywhere worth working. Good to do for free, but forget buying the certificate.

How can u save it on kindle?

i have studied to teach English as a foreign language and never graduated (didn't fail my English exams)
this might be the perfect chance for me to do something when my toddler is ready for school.

This looks like it might be just the thing for people who would like to volunteer in their community helping others to learn English - great find!

Really? So what is accepted (Internationally)?

In my experience, they are accepted outside of Europe in most Asian countries. Quite a few of my friends have spent a year or two teaching English abroad, and the usual prerequisites were a degree in something and a TEFL certificate.

That's what I heard too. I re-read it and I think he meant as an actual teacher here in the UK.

CELTA This is the real standard for working in a place that is worth working in... you can check out this link on the British Council's website. I worked for Berlitz.. TEFL was accepted there.. however, the salaries are awful, the same can be said for many places that will accept TEFL

Not really, most countries outside of Europe don't recognise CELTA and it has nothing to do with being a place 'worth' working in. As stated by Gannet, most Asian countries accept a TESOL/TEFL certificate. However, I've heard of some certificates not being recognised due to the academy they were issued by. So while this would be good as a free course, it probably isn't worth paying for the certificate.

I was thinking of doing this qualification but a paid for one that is hopefully recognized properly, Just curious how many people have taken it here? and what sort of success they have had with it? I have a foundation degree in creative Media but only city and guilds qualifications in English and maths, is that enough to be able to take this? Thanks in advance for any help

You don't need any qualifications to do a TEFL course, only money Although many TEFL jobs later require you to have a degree besides the actual course. Check this website for some general info on where a degree may be required: globaltefl.uk.com/tea…sia
