Our approach

It’s hands on! During our TEFL Newcastle courses our experienced trainers explain and demonstrate where appropriate but we make sure our students get involved as much as possible. The best way to learn to TEFL is to TEFL, so look forward to lesson planning, games and taking part in activities created by other people on the course.

You will create your very own lessons and have the chance to teach your peers. The course will enable you to fully understand how to adapt your lessons to suit different age groups and English levels.

The topics of classroom activities vary greatly from lesson to lesson, so no matter what your educational/professional background, you will have something interesting to bring to the course.
