Being able to speak English does not mean knowing how to teach it. A comprehensive and practical 9-Week Online Training course in Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) teaching methodology is offered from mid May through mid July at no extra cost. The on-line TEFL training course will provide participants with concrete solutions, practical usable ideas and sample lesson plans that can be used soon after their arrival in China. Participants who successfully complete the course will be provided with a "Teach in China TEFL Certificate".
This course is required by AATC program even if you already have a TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) or TEFL certificate or teaching related experience. You do not need to be on computer at a set time to take the course. This online course can be accessed anytime from your home computer or from anywhere where you have access to the Internet.
