Doing a 120-hour TEFL course online is a guaranteed way to bring some excitement into your life. A 120-hour online TEFL course is your key to starting afresh and doing something you’ve probably never thought about doing, possible never even thought you could do. If you are willing to give up 5 days of your life – just 5 days – to embark on an outrageously awesome adventure then a 120-hour online TEFL course is just what you’ve been looking for.
Of course, we don’t expect you to sit still and finish the entire course in 5 days. That would be insane – impressive, but insane. No, you have plenty of time to complete the course, but in total the amount of time you spend on it will add up to 120 hours. Reading, thinking, writing, doing lesson plans, assignments, tests: we expect a lot from you in those 120 hours, but that’s all we ask for.
Why 120 hours? Because that’s the magic number. Online TEFL courses vary wildly but employers are mostly interested in how long your course was, with 120 hours being the perfect amount. Any less than that and employers won’t look at your job application for very long; any more than that and there is not real extra advantage. 120 Hours is the perfect number because, if you think about it, there is actually no way that you will be able to cover so much material and ingest so much information in less than that amount of time.
If you decide to sign up for our 120 hour online TEFL course, then you can be prepared for 120 hours of information overload. Theories of language learning, approaches to teaching English as a Foreign Language, English grammar, teaching language skills, lesson planning, classroom management – these are all terms you will become very familiar with during those 120 hours. Trust us, by the time you have finished the 120 hours, you will be dreaming about these things.
When you are done, if you have put in the effort and the work and done all the assignments and assessments, you will be awarded with a shiny, new 120-hour online TEFL certificate, which you will use to wow employers and impress your friends. After that, who knows? You could end up on a beach in Phuket teaching English to hotel employees, or in a village in Malaysia teaching English to local teachers. With a 120-hour online TEFL certificate under your belt, you could end up anywhere.
