4-week TEFL Certificate Course:
Photo of TEFL / TESOL Courses in Florence, ItalyOur intensive courses meet all international standards and are externally validated and moderated by the BOAA (Board of Academic Advisors). 

ITTT courses have a very practical emphasis and deal primarily with the real skills and knowledge needed by teachers in the classroom. Whilst the course timetable may vary slightly from location to location, the content will always remain the same.

The TEFL course is divided into six main areas:

1. Teaching Practice
The most practical and fundamental area of any TEFL/TESOL course. Course trainees teach real students of English and put into practice the skills learnt on the course.

2. Teaching Techniques
This component of the course covers areas such as:

- Evaluation and testing

- Teaching receptive skills (reading and listening)
- Teaching productive skills (speaking and writing)
- Games in the classroom

- Teaching beginner students
- Teaching individual students
- Teaching business English
- Teaching young learners

3. Language Awareness
a) Grammar. Covers word classes, simple sentence elements, complex sentences and clauses, verb time and tense, aspect and conditionals and modals, phrasals and voice. 
b) Phonology. Covers phonemics, word stress and intonation, sentence stress and intonation, rhythm and intonation, and connected speech.

4. Foreign Language Experience
The trainees receive training in an unknown foreign language to reflect on the experience of being a learner, and how this might direct their own teaching.

5. Student Profile
Trainees work with individual students on rapport-building, error analysis and correction and addressing individual student needs. Three meetings with the student are required including transcription and error analysis of audio and written samples, culminating in a 60-minute session observed by a trainer.

6. Materials Project
All trainees must develop two sets of materials used during the teaching practice. Each set must be durable, capable of being used for more than one lesson context and easily portable. The materials may include visuals, audio or video tape, cue cards and class handouts, but may not be photocopied from published sources. Trainees are required to adapt from commercial sources, or develop original materials. The summation of this project is a presentation to the trainers on how the materials were used, how they could be improved and how they might be used in another context.

Optional Italian Language Course:
If you would like to learn some Italian during your time in Italy, you could attend an Italian language program either before or after your TEFL course. Language courses start most Mondays, and are available for two, four and eight weeks.

We offer the University of Cambridge ESOL CELTA (Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults); DELTA (Diploma in English Language Teaching to Adults) and CELTYL (Extension Certificate in English Language Teaching to Young Learners).

CELTA is the most widely recognised initial professional qualification accredited level 5 on the UK National Qualification Framework (NQF). Our CELTA course provides initial training in TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language), but will also suit students who are already in the profession but who have no formal or practical qualification.

The DELTA qualification is designed for practising and experienced English language teachers. The course is delivered in 2 basic ways around the world: online and face to face. These methods combined give a third format of delivery: blended learning.

"I really enjoyed the course, although it was intense and sometimes stressful. I feel the support from the trainers was great, they were very encouraging and provided very constructive feedback. They also acted as good role models in terms of their attitudes and teaching styles. Thank you! - Sarah F.
