To meet the growing demand for quality courses, we're offering our well-known TEFL course online, so that you can become an English teacher and make use of the opportunity to earn a good living online.


Unlike so many recorded online courses (also known as self-paced courses), the bli online TEFL teaches you the real techniques and tools you need to teach English. We don't sit you down in front of a screen for hours to listen to lectures; we make you practice the skills you learn in our online practice teaching sessions, deliver presentations to your peers and discuss and debate classroom management questions and guidelines - for both physical and virtual classrooms. 


Our course is fun, interactive, practical and effective. When you've completed a bli TEFL, you'll know that you can deliver in the classroom.

There are three elements to our online, blended teacher training course:

Virtual classroom

Spend 60 hours per course in a virtual classroom with one of our expert TEFL instructors, discussing and brainstorming ideas around teaching, planning, classroom management and more.
