Online Grammar Review included in 2017 Courses

An online grammar terminology review and intro will be included with all 4-week TEFL courses beginning in 2017. This has been something our trainees have requested. Grammar will still be reviewed in our course, in a standard classroom setting. However, an introductory refresh of grammar terminology, as well as an overview of the teaching process will help with preparation for the course. There will also be a video review of EFL classroom methodology. The grammar and teaching methodology review will be emailed to trainees approximately 4 weeks before the start of their training course.

Advance payment discount for all 2017 Courses
Additional $ 100 USD off full/balance payments made by 31 Dec 2016

Our course prices are at or below most of our competitors, and those who do offer a grammar refresher course charge an additional $130-150 for it. SEE TEFL offers a high quality, comprehensive teacher training course which is also great value.
