TEFL Course Content

This updated and expanded course, a revision of the 2011 version, comprises 19 content units. While covering topics akin to those in a standard 120-hour online EFL course on teaching English as a foreign language, it is uniquely tailored to equip individuals for teaching in China. Participants have the flexibility to progress at their own pace, with a recommended allocation of 5-10 hours per unit.
Each unit, except Unit 19, includes a brief quiz that must be completed before advancing to the next unit.
