Our unique TEFL course is designed to give you the confidence necessary to teach effectively.




The TESOL/TEFL course
The TESOL/TEFL course in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City comprises 150 hours of study over 4 weeks with a substantial component (20 hours) being actual teaching practice with ‘real’ English language students engaged in ongoing study programs. The course is suitable for professionally-minded people of all ages and backgrounds who aspire to teach ESL.
The first two days of each new TESOL/TEFL course in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City are dedicated to getting familiar with your surroundings and becoming acquainted with the people you will spend close to a month with doing the course. There is a Welcome Party (free) on the Saturday and a city tour (free) on the Sunday before the study component of the TESOL program commences on the Monday.
The Schedule & Assessment
The theory component of the TESOL/TEFL course largely takes place in weeks 1, 2 & 3, Monday to Friday 8.30am to 3.00pm. The practical component (observation and teaching practice classes – minimum 20 hours) is evenly spread across the 4 weeks and involves some evenings & part of each weekend. In the final week of the study program the focus is on providing support with completing the necessary assessment tasks and transitioning to employment. Course content includes, but isn’t limited to: learning styles, lesson structure, lesson planning, classroom interaction, teaching the language, motivation & interest, designing an entire course, local & international tests, music in the classroom and art & craft.

The assessment process starts on day one and continues through to the end of the 4 week course. Professional conduct, participation, preparation work and suchlike are all paramount. In addition to successfully completing the practical component of the course – observation & teaching practice classes – students are required to complete (and submit in most cases) 7 comprehensive lesson plans and related documentation, a course journal, two major writing tasks (1,500 words) and an English grammar task. The maximum number of students in a TESOL/TEFL class is 17. Students come from all corners of the world with around 30% having English as a second (or third) language.
