CERTIFICATION

LIVE TRAINERS & TEACHING PRACTICUM

Can you really learn to teach English at a professional level, by taking an online TEFL course? At Maximo Nivel… yes you can! The online TEFL program at Maximo Nivel is not your ordinary online certification. Other online TEFL courses simply concentrate on ESL theory—they are automated, online courses. This is known as one-way learning, because you miss the class interaction and the practical teaching component that the best TEFL courses offer.

Maximo Nivel’s online TEFL course, gives you the theory, the opportunity to discuss theory and practice with your TEFL Trainer, and you teach 6 one hour lesson with a live English student! The online TEFL course includes 15 hours of tutoring and coaching by Skype with your TEFL Trainer. The Online TEFL is a thorough introduction to Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL). During the online course, you become familiar with the principles of successful ESL teaching. The online program includes independent reading, in-book tasks, lesson plans, and focused written assignments. You submit your work via email and your TEFL Trainer provides written and verbal feedback through email and Skype meetings. During the practical teaching module, your trainer observes your online teaching and provides feedback and coaching to help you improve.

Online TEFL courses are more affordable and flexible than onsite TEFL courses. In addition to saving you money, online courses give you a great deal of independence and flexibility. You earn your TEFL certificate from the comfort of your home or your favorite coffee shop. Online courses are perfect for working professionals or full-time students who are unable to commit to a 4-week, onsite course. An online TEFL course is a simple and easy way to start your teaching adventure abroad, because you can dip your toes and determine if a full-time TEFL course and teaching in a foreign country is really what you are looking for.

Why I Maximo Nivel

Maximo Nivel rocks. When I first came across the opportunity to take the TEFL course I was skeptical of the overwhelmingly positive comments and almost didn’t take the opportunity. I am so glad I did. The TEFL course was everything I hoped it would be and more. If you have ever wanted to teach English abroad, Maximo Nivel is the place to do it.

ONLINE PRACTICAL TEACHING

It is important to note the Maximo Nivel online TEFL includes a practical teaching module—making the course completely distinct from all other online programs. Your practical teaching is done via Skype with a non-native learner, and your TEFL Trainer observes and coaches you on each lesson. Feedback is critical to improving your teaching and increasing your self-awareness as an ESL professional. Note, the Skype platform presents many of its own challenges including being animated while on camera, learning how to use eBooks, PDFs, and an electronic whiteboard.
