What do you get from completing TEFL?

Most of our TEFL graduates are hired to teach English for our language school.

Spěváček is the third biggest language school in the Czech Republic and offers quality in-company courses as well as courses for the public. Many graduates get offered a job at our language school straight after the course. Pass 1 students get a job offer automatically, with a Pass 2 you will be invited to an informal job interview. 

During the course you will have a job guidance session that will prepare you for what comes after you finish your TEFL course. Whether you plan to pursue your teaching career in the Czech Republic or somewhere else in the world, we are always ready to write recommendations and assist you with the process of getting an English teaching job.

We are externally validated and moderated by IATQuO.

We meet international standards of CELTA and Trinity TESOL. IATQuO inspectors come annualy to check the standards are maintained.

Course Modules

Language Awareness

This module focuses on how the English language works (grammar, phonology). For native speakers of English this is important as they often didn’t learn this at school because they learnt the language naturally. For non-natives it serves as a refresher of what they learnt at school. The module also looks at how to structure, prepare and teach a grammar lesson.

Teaching Skills

This module focuses on providing effective tools for EFL teachers to help students improve their communicative competence in the following skills: reading, listening, writing, and speaking. This module concentrates on each of the four skills separately because different methods, principles and approaches should be used to present, reinforce, improve, and practice each skill.

Methodology

This module introduces the basic terminology related to EFL and focuses on various methods and techniques you can use to teach different types of classes and students. It also looks at different resources and technology you can use in the classroom to make lesson more fun, engaging and interactive.

Lesson Planning

This Module focuses on how to plan effective lessons. You will look at how to structure different types of lessons and all of the things you need to consider during the planning stage to make the lesson as effective as possible. By the end of this module you will be able to set clear and precise objectives and write detailed and concise lesson plans. This will mean you can step into the classroom with confidence knowing you are fully prepared.

Teaching Practice

This is where you get to put everything you’ve learnt in the input sessions into practice. During the course you will teach 7 – 9 lessons with real students of various levels. After the lesson you will get feedback from one of the trainers; helping you to recognise your strengths and weaknesses and come up with clear practical steps to improve.

Teaching Young Learners

The TEFL course focuses mainly on teaching adults. Although a lot of the methodology and techniques can be applied to teaching children additional methodology is needed for this (especially for teaching very young children). Therefore, for anyone interested in teaching children, we offer a 3 day extension course for an additional fee. Live TEFL graduates get a discount on the course fee.
