TEFL Teacher Training

Teaching English as a Foreign Language

bli trains future teachers!

We offer an excellent, 120-hour, full-time in-class TEFL course designed with the practicalities of teaching people from different cultures in mind.


The course covers all relevant aspects of teaching such as

  • lesson preparation
  • classroom management
  • grammar and phonology
  • teaching practice and observation
  • student profiles
  • teaching techniques
  • language awareness
  • course material
  • assessment and feedback
  • and many more.

We focus on ensuring that trainees  acquire the real skills they need to teach in the often difficult circumstances they may face in the EFL/ESL industry. Our school has developed a reputation for excellence in this field, with a course founded on interaction, creativity and elicitation rather than lecturing. Find out what our former students say about becoming and being an EFL teacher.
