TEFL stands for Teaching English as a Foreign Language. The TEFL certificate is a teaching qualification that is required by law to teach legally in China. TEFL certificates can come in many forms in China and can be issued by a number of different organisations. For your TEFL to be accepted in China it must be 120-hours or above and must not be labelled as an 'online only' certificate. As part of our course, we provide each of our applicants with a legal 120-hour TEFL certificate that is completed online (during the application process) and then completed in-person in Beijing during our August summer camp.
THE TEFL COURSE (PART A)
The TEFL course is broken down into two parts. Part 1 is an online course that needs to be completed by each applicant prior to departing to China. The course teaches applicants about the different teaching methodologies and cultural differences between teaching in China compared to the west. The course also teaches applicants some general cultural differences that applicants may experience on a day to day basis. At the end of each stage, applicants are required to complete a test around the materials of the course. Part 2 of the TEFL course is completed in Beijing at the summer camp in August (see below).
THE TEFL COURSE (PART B)
After completing the teaching portion of the summer camp our applicants will complete the second stage of the TEFL certificate. The second stage includes attending classes hosted by CEAIE where applicants will teach more theory and practice some of the theory with other teachers. At the end of the classes, there will be a final test from which a TEFL certificate will be awarded to each applicant. On completion of the TEFL teachers will then be placed on a high-speed train to depart for their intended city where the real adventure will begin.
