Spending a weekend immersed in the world of TEFL will give you a clear insight into what TEFL is all about. You will focus on some of the key issues surrounding teaching English: being in a classroom with a group of non-native speaker students, motivating them, encouraging them, and planning lessons for them. A weekend TEFL course is an intensive TEFL learning experience!
You will find a weekend TEFL course is a lot of fun, a chance to meet like-minded people. You will also have the opportunity to teach short slots on a couple of occasions. What you will get in abundance is enthusiasm, teaching tips and inside knowledge from respected TEFL trainers.
In order to get the most out of your course and to become a more rounded teacher it is advisable to back up your face-to-face weekend course with an online TEFL course.

See the 120 and 140 hour course pages for more information.
