• Comparing/contrasting the learning process with the teaching process
• Noting observations of teaching techniques, materials used and classroom management
• A 200 word conclusion on what was learned and how to use it in future
II. Profile of an Individual English student
This profile allows Trainees to experience what it is like to learn a foreign/second language and
enables them to reflect this experience directly into their own teaching. Trainees need to observe a
student learning English in order to assimilate how to find student needs, create course objectives
and to develop a lesson plan. This profile must include the following:
• A clear profile of the student and their English level
• Analyze the students learning needs in the future
• Analyze the students short-term learning needs and create a two week lesson plan
III. Three lesson Plans
Trainees will be able to develop the necessary teaching skills during the course in order to create a
specific lesson plan per learning level (Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced English). These three
lesson plans should have to be done some days prior to the end of the course, during the last
week of the course.
Two TEFL Tests
Trainees should have to successfully complete a total of two TEFL tests in order to make progress
throughout the course. These exams are periodic progress tests and will contain exercises on
methodological issues and language awareness. These are tutor- marked assignments..
IV. Classroom observation
Trainees will be given ten hours of classroom observation sessions with experienced Foreign
Language or English Tutors before teaching a real ESL/EFL student. Therefore, trainees will need
to take into account certain aspects of their future teachings and observe the following:
• if the instructions in the observed class were clear/if the academic goals are set from the
beginning of the class,
• if the teacher writes clearly on the whiteboard,
• if the teacher pronounces the language clearly and if classroom language is appropriate,
• if the class is engaging and all students are involved,
• if the teacher makes sure all students understood and are making progress, • if classroom setting
is positive and pacing of the lesson is accurate,
• if there is a good balance between student talk and teacher talk,
• and if all materials are appropriate to the learning level of students.
V. Teaching Practice
Trainees will be given ten hours of in-classroom practice with real English students. This will
enable Trainees to teach real students and gain in-class experience and also receive mentor/tutor
feedback. It is expected that all trainees during the teaching practice could demonstrate:
• Good potential
• Good awareness of the levels of their students
• Devise a variety of activities to match the interests of their students • A variety of techniques to
• Good classroom management
• An awareness of the need for thorough lesson planning

TEFL Graduates can start working after the TEFL course but it will take one month or a little bit more taking into account the interview process. Some companies and language schools would like to try the graduates and offer them
less hours in the beginning and if they get good or great feedback they get their teaching schedule full very soon. There is a shortage of TEFL qualified Teachers in Buenos Aires so they will all have a guaranteed Teaching Job right
after the TEFL course if they would like to considering the interview process as well. What our TEFL graduates normally do in order to benefit of the USD difference and to fight inflation here is teaching English online part time,
therefore getting paid in USD and the rest of the time to work for an Argentinian employer because of the challenge as well as for the experience average salary for a TEFL-certified, degree-holding, native English speaker is around $20 USD per hour. This is often higher depending on your experience and qualifications.
