TEFL Courses Canada

Explore our range of TEFL courses

You can enrol on any of the following TEFL courses: Online Level 3 TEFL Certificate, Online Level 5 TEFL Diploma or Combined Level 5 TEFL Diploma, depending on how you intend to use your TEFL qualification. So, which option from our TEFL courses is right for you?

Our Level 3 TEFL certificate course will introduce you to TEFL (teaching English as a foreign language). It is an online-only course and leads to a 120hr TEFL certificate. It is the best option if you want to find casual work teaching English, such as volunteer teaching, teaching whilst backpacking, plus some online roles. 

Our Level 5 TEFL diploma course goes into more detail. It can be studied online or online with classroom learning (combined) and leads to a 168hr TEFL diploma. Our classroom learning is delivered face-to-face at one of our Canadian Campuses. A Level 5 TEFL course is the best option if you want to find formal work teaching English, such as the contracted roles from our TEFL Jobs Board, or government teaching programmes, which usually include accommodation, flight reimbursement and help to get your work visa.

TEFL Course FAQ

The TEFL Academy is recognized in Canada and all around the globe as one of the best accredited TEFL course providers. Our Level 3, combined Level 5 and online-only Level 5 courses equip you to teach English as a foreign language both in the classroom and online, even if you have no previous experience teaching (which not many new teachers have). The TEFL Academy has seen over 200,000 of our graduates find teaching jobs in countries all over the world and online. We have advertised more than 8,000 jobs on our jobs board. We have placed more than 15,000 teaching interns and volunteers through our programmes. Most importantly, is the experience of our students. The TEFL Academy has the highest average reviews of any TEFL course provider on all the major review aggregator websites.

We do! Our Level 3 TEFL course is a 120-hour online TEFL course, while our online-only Level 5 TEFL course is a 168-hour online TEFL course.Already TEFL-qualified? Sign up for one of our online Top-Up Courses:

Yes. Our Level 5 168-hour Combined TEFL course offers 10 hours of face-to-face instruction. In Canada, these courses can be done in Vancouver and Toronto. This component of the course allows you to put the theory of teaching into practice in a real classroom situation.

With a TEFL certification, the world is your oyster. With a reputable TEFL qualification you can teach in any country around the world and online. Some countries may require you to have a degree (in any subject) in addition to your TEFL for visa purposes. What else can I do with a TEFL certificate besides teaching English, travelling the world and earning money? With a TEFL qualification you can become a blogger, a writer, a principal, and a teacher trainer.

A TEFL certificate is an investment of your time and money. After all, it’s a qualification in further education. In Canada, a TEFL course with The TEFL Academy costs from $500 to $1200. This gives you access to your course and our team of dedicated tutors for 6 months.

A Level 3 TEFL course is a good option if you want to volunteer teach or work in more informal teaching positions like on summer camps. A Level 5 TEFL course is a better option if you want higher-paid jobs and long-term teaching positions. With a combined Level 5 TEFL course, or an online-only Level 5 TEFL you are eligible for the TEFL job of your choice.

On the whole, a TEFL course is not hard to pass. Some TEFL trainees find it challenging if they haven’t been a student for a while or if they are not academically inclined. A TEFL certificate is a teaching qualification. It involves extensive reading, studying, assignments and tests. If you don’t have the time or motivation to dedicate yourself to the course, then it can be difficult. The TEFL Academy has a team of experienced and professional tutors who are available to you should you have any troubles with the course - be it academic or technical issues. The feedback you receive from your tutors will enable you to improve on any areas of difficulty. Plus, you will have an entire community of other TEFL Academy students who are on the exact same journey as you are!

A TEFL course is vital to be able to teach English as a foreign language effectively. It teaches you the foundations of teaching English, from grammar to teaching pronunciation to classroom management and assessment. Even if you already have a teaching qualification, a TEFL course is necessary to prepare you for the EFL classroom. Teaching English to students who cannot speak the language is not the same as, say, teaching History to English first-language speakers. There is a different skill set involved, which is where a TEFL course comes in. Besides the fact that a TEFL course will prepare you for the classroom, it shows your potential employer that you are serious about your teaching. In other words, a TEFL qualification is your ticket to a good TEFL job.

TEFL courses can be taken in many different countries around the world. The TEFL Academy offers both online and combined courses, so you can choose to study completely online or you can combine online study with a practical in-class training session. We even offer an Observed Teaching Practice course which is 100% online - the first of its kind. In Canada, the face-to-face components of the Level 5 course are held in Toronto and Vancouver.

Doing a TEFL course and getting TEFL qualified is the first step towards a whole world of adventures. A TEFL qualification gives you the opportunity to travel the world and earn money. Or, if you decide to teach English online, being a TEFL teacher gives you the flexibility to live wherever you want. If you’re familiar with the concept of being a digital nomad, a TEFL certificate is one way you can enjoy this lifestyle. You can move around as often as you like, while having the comfort of earning money no matter where you are. A TEFL course is not just a course, it’s the key to opening doors you might not even know exist yet.

To do a TEFL course all you need is to be a fluent English speaker and at least 16 years of age. Having a degree is not a requirement to do a TEFL course, nor is it a requirement to get a job as a TEFL teacher.

“It turns out this was one of the best decisions I have ever made. My only regret is not doing it sooner!”
