This specialist 30-hour Teaching English to Young Learners course is a great addition to your list of credentials. It’s one that we, at the TEFL Institute, highly recommended that you do if you ever want to teach children learn how to speak English. If you do, then this is the qualification that you need.
By adding this to your TEFL CV, you are giving yourself more job opportunities and your flexibility of being able to teach both adults and children makes you a more attractive employer to any employee.
Teaching Young Learners is one of the most rewarding specialist areas in the TEFL world. This course is your key to opening doors in this fulfilling career path. This course looks at educational theories, teaching methodologies and specific activities that can be drawn upon to keep your students interested and motivated in the classroom.
Many teaching English jobs and internships are based in schools teaching children between the ages of 4 and 16. You could land a role as a lead TEFL teacher in a primary school in Colombia or become an after school tutor teaching English as a foreign language for young learners eager to learn from you. The opportunities are endless so don’t limit them by not taking this opportunity.

30 hour Teaching Young Learners Course

Module One: How to Make Sense of Teacher/Learner Needs

Understanding your students’ language abilities and why they want to learn English. Get to know the basic principles behind teaching younger learners and teens. 

Module Two: Understand Your Responsibilities as a Young Learners Teacher

Classroom routines are important in any good classroom but for younger learners it is vital to have structure and consistency. Learn classroom management techniques that will eliminate the chaos and make your lessons run smoothly.

Module Three: How to Teach Grammar and Vocabulary

Did you know that we say about 7,500 words on an average day? Don’t worry you will only be asked to teach your young learners a few hundred of these. From beginner vocab like HELLO and GOODBYE you’ll study the tools to teach vocabulary and use them effectively so that your students can use it in the right context.

By the end of this module, you’ll also know your present continuous from your present simple tense. Most of all, you’ll be familiar and confident with grammatical terms.

Module Four: How to Teach Reaching & Listening Skills

These are called ‘Receptive skills’ because the student is receiving language. By the end of this lesson, you’ll know the most effective ways to engage students in reading English and how to write it. This includes setting listening tasks to music, audio stories and recordings, to reading articles, emails, facebook posts both inside and outside the classroom.

Module Five: How to Teach Writing & Speaking Skills

These are called ‘Productive skills’ because students produce language. You’ll learn plenty of  useful ideas about how to get your students up on their feet and chatting to you about favorite superheroes, games or pets. You’ll also get help with how to teach your students to write English – at all levels, from favorite foods, to their hobbies.

  • What is TEFL?

    TEFL stands for Teaching English as a Foreign Language. It is primarily teaching non-native speakers English without the use of translation. This means you won’t need to know their first language. TEFL teachers will need the knowledge and know-how of the methodologies to teach in this way. This is why teachers will first need to complete a TEFL course and gain the qualification. TEFL is widely used to either teach English online in one-to-one or small group scenarios or to teach English abroad and sometimes even used as an easier way to travel. 

  • Who can do a TEFL course?

    First and foremost, an aspiring TEFL teacher must be outgoing and confident, and not afraid to make themselves look a little silly, especially when teaching children. Expression is a huge part of the methodologies to be able to get your point across. You’ll warm up to this in time and it all takes practice. 

    We suggest people to be at least 16 with a C1 level of English or higher. If you’re not sure, we have a free English test. We also would recommend people who work on their own initiative as it is an online course and you will need to be your own motivation. 

  • What do I need to teach online?

    If you have no experience in teaching online, a good idea is to get some teaching practice in as they may ask for “experience” hours, which are unpaid. You can alternatively complete our 10 hour Methodologies course, which has a section focused on teaching English online. 

    Most online companies will ask for your TEFL certificate, teaching practice, to have accessibility to good WiFi, a laptop or other computer devices, and headphones. Some online companies may ask their teachers to also have a Bachelor’s Degree. This is evident in Chinese online companies, as it is a government regulation (no matter where you are currently living).

  • How are the courses laid out?

    Our courses are filled with course content, videos, podcasts, reflective tasks, and tests. They are online courses and can be completed in your own time and from home. 

    Our specialist courses are much shorter than the main TEFL qualifications. They are all completed online and in your own time. All tests are done online and corrected instantly. They have course content and tests throughout the course. They can be completed before or after the main TEFL qualification. 

  • Are the courses accredited?

    The TEFL Institute is fully accredited by the TQUK (center number: C000854) and ACDL. Our 180 hour Level 5 TEFL course is regulated by OFQUAL. 

  • Is this course completely online? How flexible is this course?

    All courses are all done online and no travelling is required for the tests. Except for the 10 hour Virtual training, you can log on at any time. This is to ensure our TEFL courses can be done while working or other studies. There is a 6 month deadline to the courses, but you can contact us for extensions.

I have signed up for the TEFL course back in December and can say the staff at the Institute are super approachable, very friendly and professional, especially Kate. The course (Teaching English Online) has been very informative, easy to navigate and is a great platform for continuous learning, especially for those who wanted to get language certified and a new perspective on how to put that knowledge to use in the digital era.

I have recently completed the 10 Hour Advanced Certificate in TEFL Classroom Methodologies Course which was held via Zoom with Kate Popova. Kate was really engaging, kept us all interested throughout the two sessions, we learned a lot and also had a laugh! I have thoroughly enjoyed it. This course also includes a Teaching Practice. It was great to get to talk and present in front of other students and get the hands-on experience of teaching! Kate was also ready to answer any questions we might have had and you have support also after completing the course. To summarise, although there was a lot to cover in this course, it wasn’t boring for a second, it didn’t feel rushed and we all felt the positive, relaxed vibes from the tutor! Highly recommended!

I have found the courses challenging but doable, and I have learned so much already. I was contacted by a member of the team following my sign-up and was offered very friendly and swift support. I feel very positive that this course will benefit me as a teacher.My classroom methodology course hosted by Kate Popova was great and gave me and the other students great practice and confidence with tefl.

I've found the TEFL customer service very satisfactory. Upon signing up for a course you are immediately sent an email of welcome with a point of contact and therefore someone to go to with any questions or queries. My point of contact is Kate and has been very helpful getting back to me on any questions/queries I have gone yo her with! I would highly recommend signing up for a TEFL course as they are very rewarding and the customer/student support is great.

In early 2020 I purchased the 120 hour course, however, throughout the past year, I was kept busy with work and unable to complete the course in the allowed time frame and the course expired. Since I have more time, I reached out to TEFL helpline and got through to Emma who was very quick to reply and listen to me. I explained my situation and without hesitation, Emma applied an extension to help me complete the course.Emma is a credit to the TEFL institute and I cannot thank her enough for her incredible customer service and support!

As an experienced TEFL teacher I think it is important to keeping refreshing and expanding my portfolio of skills.I have just finished the 30 Hour TOEIC Preparation Course. I found it really well organised and informative. It clearly lays out the structure of the TOEIC Exams and the marking criteria. The reflective tasks are a great way of delving into your 'back catalogue' of teaching methods and applying them to the relevant questions. Also there are many links to resources that can be used in your teaching of TOEIC.I can't wait to start teaching a TOEIC focused course.Thank you.

As I study Spanish in university, I was excited to begin this course to enhance my global language skills. I've heard great things about these courses from classmates and family friends. When purchasing the 120 Hour Premier TEFL Course, I received a free 30 Hour Grammar Course as well. The modules are easy to follow, and the website is very easy to navigate. TEFL customer service is extremely accommodating and helpful. They are very approachable; when I had a situation I needed assistance with regarding the course, Katie from Customer Service was extremely helpful! I highly recommend the programs TEFL has to offer, and I look forward to completing my complimentary 30 hours.

I recently just finished my 180 Hour Level 5 TEFL Certification through the TEFL Institute of Ireland and highly recommend this program for anyone interested in teaching English as a foreign language. Even though I have no previous teaching experience, I found the course easy to follow and full of valuable information - I actually feel prepared to teach now even though I have no in-classroom experience. I particularly appreciated the wealth of downloadable resources as well, meaning I can access them again when my time in classroom comes.What really made this program stand out to me though was the support of the staff. Having the ability to call free on WhatsApp, live chat on the website or email made getting in touch so easy - which I did. A LOT. - and every single person I encountered, particularly Kate, Ola, and Emma, were fast to reply and happy to answer any questions I had. The tutor support was amazing as well, and my sincerest thanks to both Rachel and Jacob for answering all of my questions during the assessment process.I enjoyed the course so much that I have since signed up for two more 30-hour courses, and am currently in the process of securing a teaching job abroad thanks to my TEFL certification!One note to people starting the course: make sure to use all of the academic support offerings available! When doing my course, I was unaware that there are information sessions every week and an ongoing discord chat for anyone who has questions. Thankfully I took advantage of these during the reassessment process, as they were incredibly helpful and my only regret in the course is not utilising this service sooner!

I have done a thorough search of the web on online TEFL courses and I eventually selected the TEFL Instite of Ireland; I am very happy with my choice as it is a rewarding experience. At the moment I am doing the 120 h Premium TEFL course and I extremely satisfied with the course platform, the methodology, the material, the videos,.. I am learning so many things!
I already look forward to my next course "Teaching English online", especially at these times online courses are the only choice teachers have to meet with their students and so it gets important to learn how to organise remote lessons and build a positive atmosphere with the virtual class.
I take this opportunity to thank the staff of the TEFL Institute of Ireland as they prove to be very professional, attentive, collaborative and sentitive persons.
Highly reccomend!

I signed up for the 10 hour Virtual Training course at the last minute, and I'm glad I did! Both tutors Michelle and Kate were very inspiring. They were extremely helpful and supportive. In fact, just watching how they handled the course itself gave me ideas to apply in the virtual classroom.

Having spent the last few months completing the 180 hour level 5 TEFL Certificate online, it was great to get that collaborative experience and added boost in confidence, while practicing teaching skills online. It was also brilliant to get feedback from tutors and other participants.

Well worth it!

The 120 hour Premier TEFL Qualification is a bargain! It is very thorough and relevant in its content. Being new to teaching, its brought me up to speed in a relatively short time.

At first I was not really sure if this was for me. I thought I may find it difficult to take on something totally new to me, as I am an elderly student. I also had some health issues at the beginning of my course. I need not have worried. From the very first contact I had with TEFL everything was absolutely wonderful. I had an absolutely brilliant experience. The staff helping me to do the 120 TEFL course were the most helpful and understanding people I could have wished for. All and any questions I had were answered and solved in no time at all. Every time. There seems to be someone available to help on the other end of a telephone at almost any time of day. The course itself is so very easy to follow and since I downloaded the app it makes it even easier to use and to access my course from anywhere, anytime on my phone. This was so helpful to me as I could not always access my computer.
On a scale of 1 to 10, Learning to teach English with TEFL is a robust 10, no doubt about it.
If you are considering a course with the TEFL Institute of Ireland, I say go ahead. Don't hesitate! You will not just learn to better use your own language. You will open up a whole new world of opportunities you never thought were possible.
Thank you TEFL . . .

I could not recommend this company enough. I signed up for the 5 month internship in Vietnam and headed off in January 2020. Unfortunately I didn’t get to teach for long due to coronavirus and schools closing, but the support I received from was invaluable. They kept in touch making sure I was ok and were only a phone call or email away if I needed anything. Unfortunately I’ve returned home early but will definitely be completing more courses with this company and recommending this internship to everyone ❤️

Each module is broken up into bite-size amounts so it didn’t feel overwhelming with information. The course included lots of links to books and videos and gave you all the materials you needed to progress quickly through the course.

I attended the TEFL 10 hour course today at the Radisson Blu Hotel in Cork . I cannot praise our teacher Michelle enough. She was an amazing teacher who with her ice breakers got us to relax, mix and most importantly enjoy the course. Michelle is a superb teacher who has a bubbly, friendly and enthusiastic personality and is passionate about teaching. It was also lovely to meet Emma and Roisin, 2 of the girls who worked in the TEFL office.They too were great fun. The group bonded well due to Michelle's attitude and we laughed our way through the day. We worked in pairs and also in small groups. Towards the end of the day all of the students took part in an exercise to show what teaching skills they had developed . I must say that the day flew by. I would highly recommend the 10 hour course as it gives you such an inside into what real teaching is like in a classroom. Thank you Michelle for a fabulous day.

I had completed a 300hr TEFL course and it was absolutely worth it. Staff are super helpful and do their best with any question queries during and after you finish your course.
Currently, I had applied for a TEFL teaching position and received a response from Emma, the recruitment manager within a couple of hours. She was extremely helpful and encouraging which made the application process easy. Emma had listed all documents required and once I had forwarded them to her, she had sent off my application within a few hours. I was very impressed with how helpful, positive, fast and eager she was to get my application to the client but also her prompt replies and dedication in getting me placed as a TEFL teacher.
I would recommend it to anyone who has an interest in becoming a TEFL teacher to take on a course with The TEFL Institute of Ireland as the courses are very interesting and set in a way to give you a clear understanding of each module. Staff are very friendly, dedicated and do their best to get you where you want to be.

I chose to do the 300 hour course and I found it really good. They give you tonnes of resources to help during and after your course and the support team are really helpful. I would recommend it to anyone looking to qualify to teach English abroad.

I've been a teacher for several years in Korea and when I came across the TEFL Institute of Ireland's Master Course, I had to do it! I decided to pick the 300 hour program to get the best results in my teaching. TEFL Institute of Ireland has a really good course and even though I've taught for so many years, I have learned a great deal. Whether you are experienced or inexperienced, I would recommend you do this course. And best of luck for those who are completing their courses.

I am so glad to have signed up to this TEFL course, I chose the 120 hour option and have found it to be fantastic! Everything is so clearly laid out for you and easy to understand. I was hesitant in the beginning as I had never undertaken an online course before but can say now that I could not be happier with my choice!

When I first started considering a tefl course I wasn’t sure which course was right for me and who to get my accreditation with. However with the consistent support and guidance of the Tefl institute of Ireland staff having chosen to do the 120 hour course with them I am confident I made the right choice. The course is jam packed but very well structured making the learning process both accessible and enjoyable!

Very impressed with the day course I attended in Cork! The teacher was very helpful, good sense of humour and brilliant at explaining concepts. Had a good group of people and felt like I learned a lot! Came as a beginner and it was a great introduction to the world of teaching English as a foreign language.

The 180 hr Advanced Level 5 TEFL suited me so well alongside my current university studies and at times complemented them in terms of critical thinking and resource management.
It encouraged high standards and focused on exploring the ways of improving class cohesion and suitability to plans for different students.
It also had some really insightful podcasts and interactive videos that round out learning, overall extremely helpful and flexible.

I have done the 120 hour online and then on 22 Sep I did the 10 hour practical workshop in Dublin. Was really concerned that it started at 9:30 and finished at 7pm that I would be bored and fall asleep.

From the outset Michelle (perma smile), Kate and Katie kept the pace going, engaged us all in a great day of practical learning and good fun. It flew and my goals were fully achieved as after the 120 hour I felt good about the content but needed practical help and some experience. There were 12 of us and it was really a good and and a great group of people. Made a show of myself a few times.

Thanks again ladies and and look forward to working with you in the future.

It is clear, accessible, flexible and engaging. I am so grateful to have found it as it has opened doors for me to find work, not only in Ireland, but in interesting and exciting places around the world! I recommend it to anyone who wishes to expand their skills in a practical and manageable way (and for those thirsty for adventure!)

So happy to have finished TEFL 120 course, it showed me how much can be done in a classroom to make teaching not only fun but more informative for everyone involved.

Yesterday, monday march the 12th, I completed my 120 h advanced TEFL courses. Those online courses are well designed and very useful. I've learnt a lot about the methodology, the materials ans the content ! I just hope that not being a native English speaker (french citizenship) won't be an obstacle to find a teaching job of English abroad.

Just completed the 120 hour TEFL component of a 240 Hour Master Class. Modules were informative; well structured and very educational. I learned a lot and have a greater appreciation of written and spoken languages and linguistics. The Great advantage of this system is one can do the training in your own time and start back into a module wherever you left/logged off. The browser, at least in my experience, was initially difficult to navigate. Compatibility was best by accessing the TEFL site using Google Chrome rather that Internet Explorer
