The TEFL Practicum

During a 20-hour Practicum, trainees get to observe real classes for 10 hours and then practice their lesson planning skills in front of a controlled environment for another 10 hours.

The 10 hours of teaching practice are key for new teachers who need to gain confidence in front of a classroom because a supervising teacher with vast teaching experience and an internationally recognized TEFL certificate is there to provide feedback.

Trainees can take a professional TEFL course online, such as Ontesol’s 250-hour TESOL Diploma or the new online CELTA, and complete the 20-hour Practicum afterwards. Those who take Ontesol’s TESOL Diploma can complete the Practicum anywhere in the world, and there isn’t a deadline to complete this module.

Most language schools in Europe, UAE, Canada, and Australia prefer teachers who have completed a Practicum. It is not necessary to complete this module if you are pursuing entry-level positions in Asia or Latin America.

Teach English in Turkey, One-To-One Tutoring, and more!

On this week’s TESOL Expert blog, Ontesol shows us Cappadocia, a mystic ancient town built inside a network of chimney-shaped peaks on the Turkish region of Anatolia.

Our teacher trainers write about TEFL one-to-one, teaching ESL literacy, and using ‘Dictogloss’ to teach multiple-skills.

This week, EPIK recruitment opens for the term that starts on February 2013. As an approved recruiter, Ontesol provides free recruitment services to all its graduates who meet university, native-speaker, and age requirements.

Take an accredited TESOL course with Ontesol and teach English worldwide! The 100-hour TESOL course costs only $285! If you are looking for a CELTA-equivalent course that is offered online, the 250-hour TESOL Diploma offers more training in the Theory and Methodology of TESOL than a CELTA course.
