Shanghai Classroom TEFL Course

“The program pairs teaching foundation and theory with practical classroom experience. Without a doubt, this program has prepared me for teaching. In a span of 4 weeks, I learned so much about teaching, different ways to teach, as well as classroom management techniques. Not only do you get to monitor yourself and your own progression, but you also learn from other trainees in your cohort too. Overall, this was a very enriching and valuable learning experience. I would absolutely recommend this program for anyone with no teaching experience who wants to teach abroad.”

"The 120 hour in-class TEFL provided by Teaching Nomad in Shanghai, was the most amazing experience. Coming to China can be quite an overwhelming experience but with this team behind you, you cannot help but succeed. "

Shanghai Classroom TEFL

"I have never seen an organization that performs nearly as well as Teaching Nomad. How any organization can perform at this level is beyond me. Teaching Nomad in my opinion is a benchmark for any organization in any industry. The TEFL training was beyond what I expected. There was an in-class training with several excellent teachers and trainers. Not only was I provided with books, lectures, videos, websites and demos; I had the opportunity to actually teach classes of various sizes and age groups. Teaching Nomad made sure I was prepared for teaching. They made sure I had the confidence and skills to teach and do it well."

"The experience of obtaining my TEFL was very unique and something I’d never really imagined myself doing. All the instructors were more than helpful with every aspect. Ginger provided a lot of help in the lead up to me moving to China with visa assistance etc. Olivia, Nick, and Doug provided very valuable teaching skills and shared their expertise. It was great to meet new people, get some teaching experience in a different area of Shanghai, and learn a lot about English that it turns out I didn’t know!"
