Five reasons why you should do an Online TEFL Course

online TEFL course

You can take Cactus TEFL’s online English Language Awareness course before or after your face-to-face TEFL training, or even when you are in the first year of your first teaching job. The purpose of this course is to give you a solid understanding of the uses, functions and meaning of grammar structures in the English language. Here are our top 5 reasons for why this course is so beneficial for anyone who wants to do well in English language teaching.

1. Reputation

The Cactus English Language Awareness course was designed and produced by Cactus Language and the much respected John Hughes. As an ELT teacher, teacher trainer and course book author, John is a highly influential figure within the TEFL industry, running ELT writing courses for Oxford University, consultation for language schools as well as his own popular ELT blogs and columns for The Guardian. The ELA course was also nominated for the British Council Innovation Award after it was launched.

2. Knowledge

Having a high level of language awareness is invaluable when it comes to being a good English language teacher and planning your lessons. Language awareness is not only about know the form of grammar structures, it’s about understanding the uses and meaning of these structures, understanding subtle differences between structures and being able to convey meaning and clarify meaning to your students.

3. Confidence

Making sure your language awareness is good before you start teaching will give you the confidence to deal with any confusion or lack of understanding that your students may experience. It will also help with any difficult questions that your students may ask. It’s important, for example, to have the skills necessary to clarify the difference in uses between the past simple and the present perfect – the ELA course can help you with that.

4. Employability

Taking the ELA course whether prior or post your CELTA or Trinity CertTESOL course will look impressive on your CV and will demonstrate that you are committed to becoming the best teacher you can be. Invariably new teachers struggle a great deal in their first year due to a lack of language awareness that they often have to learn on the job. Taking this course will give your future employers reassurance that you are one-step ahead of your counter-parts.

5. Value for Money

At only £95, ELA is great value for money. However, if you book your TEFL (CELTA or Trinity) course through Cactus you can take the course for just £45. You will also receive a FREE English Language Methodology course.
