SI QUIERES....PUEDES Since 1989
Our TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) certificate program is an intensive four-week, 140-hour course that prepares you for an entry-level teaching position worldwide.
One of the main advantages of learning TEFL abroad is the opportunity to gain first-hand experience of living in a different country and learning about its culture.
Additionally, if you are planning to stay in the country where you train, doing a course there will give you valuable experience of teaching monolingual groups very similar to those that you will teach after qualifying.
Murcia was founded by the Moors in the ninth century . It is a city full of life and culture with a large population of students of the 3rd oldest University in Spain.
Murcia is known to the rest of Europe as the 'Europe's orchard' due to its long agricultural tradition and fertile soils. It is a very Spanish city, which prizes highly the much-valued customs of traditional life. http://www.turismodemurcia.es/en/town/history.

Our TEFL program includes a minimum of 20 hours of the teaching and observation practice: observation of experienced teachers, peer observation and all trainees will be asked to teach between 8 to 10 practice lessons depending on the size of the group. Class size varies from one-to-one classes, through small groups of three or four, to groups of six to fifteen learners. The assessment of teaching practice is continuous, meaning that, above all, the final grade will reflect your progress in teaching. This grade is also based on your ability to reflect on your own teaching and that of others.
The course includes how to teach grammar, pronunciation and phonology as well as the four main skills : Reading, Writing, Speaking and Listening.
Those having difficulties with any particular task will be given help during private tutorials and an opportunity to re-submit their work. Written and oral feedback will be given after each observed practice lesson. Trainees will be expected to have achieved a satisfactory standard in all areas, including teaching, by the end of the course.
