EF Indonesia TEFL course

What TEFL course should I take?

There are hundreds of TEFL course providers, options and locations to study, which means choosing a TEFL course can be quite confusing for a first time ESL teacher. Studying for a TEFL qualification is quite intensive, especially if you study full time at a language school and not online. If you choose to study full time at a language school, it is strongly suggested that you do not work or have other study commitments during the TEFL course. For online courses you can work through the content at your own pace.

 

Things to look out for when choosing a TEFL course.

  • The course should involve around 100 hours of tuition.
  • The course must include at least 6 hours of observed teaching.
  • At least level 5 on the National Qualification Framework.
  • The course should cover teaching methodologies, skills (reading, writing, listening & speaking), lesson planning, learner needs analysis and classroom management as a bare minimum.
  • If the course is taught online, make sure you can ask questions or that you have a set amount of time for tutorials with the instructors.
  • Ideally look for a course that offers observed classroom teaching and feedback on your teaching. This is sometimes offered as an add on to online courses.
  • Make sure the course offers a certificate (often required by immigration departments when applying for visas) and that the instructor will be happy to provide a report or answer reference requests.

EF Indonesia Working hours

I can’t speak Indonesian. Is that a problem?

At EF Indonesia, we teach using a full English immersive approach. This means that you do not have to be able to speak Indonesian to teach our EF students, as solely English is used in the classroom. Being able to speak or knowing a bit about Indonesian will definitely help with identifying some of the common problems Indonesian students have when learning English, so it is highly recommended that you join the free Indonesian lesson we offer to all our EF Indonesia ESL teachers.

EF Indonesia Teacher Career Paths

I did not study English or Education at university. Can I be a teacher?

Yes you can! Our EF Indonesia teachers come from a wide variety of backgrounds and having a degree in English or education is not necessary to become an ESL teacher at EF Indonesia.

For candidates whose degree was not in education, then you will need to take a TEFL course. This is a one month English teacher training course that prepares you on the basics of teaching English as a second language. There are many courses out there, of which CELTA from the University of Cambridge is the most popular.

When choosing a TEFL course, make sure there is a classroom teaching component included. You can study the theories, techniques and methodology online, however, it is very important that your course includes real teaching this is observed by the TEFL trainer.

Observations and evaluating your work

During the course of your contract, you will usually be formally observed by the Director of Studies or Head teacher three times. The first observation is done during your probation period and is a factor in deciding whether you pass the probation period. It is also used to see what training needs you have and how we can help to make you a better teacher. The second and third observations are used to see how you are progressing as a teacher. You will also receive regular feedback regarding your performance at EF not just regarding teaching, but also connected to customer satisfaction, your attitude in the teachers’ room and overall helpfulness. There are also informal observations, these could be by your peers or trainee teachers. Peer observations are a great way to learn new techniques and ideas and we strongly recommend you do this, especially if you are new to teaching.

 

As a part of your training, some of the assessments you mark will also be marked by a senior member of the academic team to ensure that you are following the EF standard for appraising students’ work. This will also include the observation of spoken assessments.

Once you have settled into teaching at EF Indonesia, you will start to do placement tests. When a new student joins EF Indonesia, they complete a written test and then are interviewed by a teacher. This helps determine their EF level. Towards the end of your probation period, you will be trained on how to conduct placement test interviews. You will be scheduled to do placement tests during your working hours.
