Below are some comments from people who've taken our business courses previously:

I found the course work challenging and very interesting. I feel I learned a great deal about teaching Business English with an EFL focus. The materials that I accessed and those I created will be of immense value to me with my students.

I really enjoyed this course. The content was interesting and challenging, plus it was easy to follow. I found the tutor’s comments very useful and encouraging!

Thank you for putting together a coherent and educational course.  It really made me think about a variety of elements and characteristics that an EFL teacher should have.

Course Description

 

Our interactive courses are innovative and take a fresh approach to training to teach English. 

With shorter modules that you can take on a computer (notebook/laptop or PC/Mac) or on a tablet device (ipad/android/windows etc.), this course offers full flexibility for training on the go. After watching an initial welcome video, you can dive straight in to the course or pick and choose the order of the modules that you work through.

There is access to a personal tutor who will mark your work and the opportunity to share teaching ideas on the Global English forum, all via your own student area.

There is easy access to the further research section in each module all in one place, as you explore the hundreds of TEFL website links we have found for you to take your knowledge further.

Built in HTML5, you can take this course from anywhere with a good internet connection.  You will also need to be able to access YouTube videos from where you are located. 

This course is for you if you are looking to add a business qualification to any Global English TEFL/TESOL course, or are already trained (with either weekend, online or CELTA course) and want to add a business specialism.
