A TEFL Certificate demonstrates an individual’s ability to teach English language to non-native speakers, and opens the door to countless teaching opportunities, both in the United States and abroad.
Most international educational institutions and countries require ESL teachers to possess TEFL Certification, as a minimum qualification. If you are interested in working in a specific country not available through Drake, we recommend researching the specific work visa policies in that country.
If you’re interested in obtaining a Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) Certificate, Drake International will be offering a 120-Hour TEFL Certification course throughout the months of April & May. Those 120 hours are a combination of independent and synchronous online instruction, as well as a practicum in a classroom (pending availability due to COVID-19). During this course, the students will learn broad educational theory, second language acquisition theory, classroom management techniques, and various formal and informal assessment strategies. Drake’s course is taught by a long-time local ESL teacher with significant TEFL experience.
