What Is a Hybrid TEFL Course?
A hybrid TEFL course is a teacher training system that allows you to combine the theory of TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) and practical teaching practice. It’s the best choice for people who want feedback on their teaching practice sessions from a qualified ESL teacher whilst also enjoying the flexibility of self-paced online learning.
The 300 Hour Level 5 Hybrid Master TEFL Course with Teaching Practice is professionally structured and covers a broad range of essential teacher training techniques plus high-demand specialisms. It consists of 3 core elements; self-paced online learning, TEFL-Pro specialism modules plus real-time live virtual classes in the Teacher Studio.
The Teacher studio gives you highly sought after TEFL teaching practice. The course also includes four separate 30-hour specialization courses (Teaching Young Learners, Teaching Business English, Teaching IELTS, and Teaching TOEIC). You’ll also get a 3 pack of essential classroom resources for new teachers: the ultimate grammar guide, a lesson planning how-to guide, and a young learner’s online lesson pack.
How Does the Combined TEFL Course Work?
Hybrid TEFL courses combine the theory of teaching ESL and the practicality of learning in a virtual classroom. Among the 6 units in the 300-hour Hybrid TEFL course is 168 hours of Ofqual regulated teacher training divided over 11 modules. Topics range from the basic principles of teaching to essential grammar and vocabulary. You’ll also attend our virtual classroom for teacher training. This consists of two 3.5 hours sessions taught online in real-time to a small group of students in a friendly environment.
