Our Programs to Teach English Abroad
LanguageCorps offers several different TEFL programs for adventurous people interested in living and working in a different culture. The programs vary by location, and an overview is given below. Please refer to the individual country pages for specific details on the International TEFL program(s) offered in that location.
Traditional programs in TEFL, TESOL, and CELTA certification are four-week, intensive courses that range from 120 hours to 150 hours—this is the international standard for certifying ESL teachers. TEFL certification courses are detailed and thorough. During the teaching certification program, you learn about ESL teaching methodologies and techniques and you hone the skills you need to be comfortable and competent teaching English abroad. Most people are somewhat surprised by how intense and hard-working the courses are designed to be. Throughout the TEFL course, you are supported by your TEFL Trainer who provides you with feedback, mentorship, and all the support you need to be successful. Our TEFL program comes with lifetime job-finding assistance. We make sure you leave the program ready to start your international teaching career and will always be available for support along the way!
Our Combined TEFL Certification Course is the perfect blend of our Online and the Onsite course. Participants of the Combined TEFL course complete the first half of the course online through self-study. You will receive support and feedback from your in-country TEFL trainer through email and 7 hours of Skype tutoring. This part of the course is very flexible and you can finish it on your own pace. For the actual teaching practice and completion of the course, you will either come to Costa Rica, Peru or Guatemala to join the traditional TEFL program in the third week of the course. As with all our programs, lifetime job-finding assistance is included!
Our Teaching Internship Program is a two-month program that includes the traditional four-week TEFL Certification course followed by a four-week Teaching Internship where you join the professional teaching team of a local educational institute. Our Teaching Internship Program is available in Costa Rica, Guatemala and Peru. Please refer to the individual country pages for specific details on what is included.
The LanguageCorps Online TEFL Certification Program is a flexible way to start your adventure in teaching English abroad. Perfect for working professionals or full-time students who are unable to commit to an onsite course, the online TEFL Certification allows you to log in and go to class whenever you please, and work at your own pace. Best of all, you earn your TEFL Certificate from the comfort of your own home or your favorite café.
LanguageCorps’ Online TEFL Certification program includes 150 hours of course work that is completed over a schedule of four to sixteen weeks. Throughout the Program you complete reading and writing assignments, take quizzes and exams on course content, and receive one-on-one tutoring from your TEFL Trainer by Skype. The online TEFL course is carefully designed to be the best online TEFL course available. The content perfectly mirrors our regular onsite TEFL programs and unlike any other online TEFL, the LanguageCorps online TEFL includes a teaching practicum where you teach 6 hours of online classes to a real English learner! We make sure you’re truly prepared and set-up for success.
