About The Course

The changing landscape of education is seeing more and more training moving online. However, Teaching English as a Foreign Language is an extremely nuanced and practical skill-set that is far easier to learn in the classroom, where you can practice everything from giving instruction to students effectively, to doing the right things to manage student’s behaviour, and get feedback on it from an experienced trainer. Creating an online course that can mimic this kind of learning is a challenging endeavor but is one we have taken on with the Ninja Teacher Academy Online TEFL course.
