Course Description

The Advanced TEFL Weekend course is a follow up course to the Weekend TEFL and includes all new materials and activities. It has been created for English or other language teachers who are seeking to improve their current teaching practices.  This course can be booked at anytime during the year by private language schools or groups of teachers for a maximum of 10 course participants. Contact: sheila@teachingenglishinitaly.com to organize your specific course dates.

During this three day weekend, course participants will engage in the implementation of warm-up activities, student-centered learning, communication through interaction, pair and group work review, Task Based Learning (TBL), ideas for teaching pronunciation, Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL), Content Based Instruction (CBI), contextualized grammar teaching, classroom management solutions to individual difficulties, and learn more about providing feedback to their learners through assessment, rubric development, and peer observation. 

This course will provide participants with professional development, inspiration, and new ideas. It will also give participants an opportunity to meet other practicing teachers who are looking for more tools to add to their "teacher toolbox" while gaining additional knowledge and valuable insight into teaching both young learners and adults. This course is useful for all language teachers (both native and near native speakers of English) and is held in English. If you're a Weekend TEFL graduate or a certified and already practicing teacher who has been teaching the English (or another) language, the Advanced TEFL Weekend course has been tailor made just for you!

Course Reviews



"I have had the pleasure of doing both the TEFL and advanced TEFL courses in beautiful Florence with the fabulous Sheila Corwin. Both courses were not only informative but fun and I met some really interesting people whilst doing them. Sheila really knows what she's doing and uses engaging teaching techniques so you can see what she is talking about in action. You will not passively sit and be lectured as this is a brilliant, dynamic and active classroom. 10/10 would recommend."



"I took the Advanced TEFL Weekend course as an already practicing teacher, after getting my first TEFL certificate a few years ago with Sheila. She is inspiring as usual! We should always be challenging ourselves on doing better and this was a great opportunity, sharing experience with other teachers and getting new ideas. And another good aspect is that you put yourself back on the "other" side and remember what YOUR students feel. That helps to understand them even more. Thanks again!"



"Thank you very much for your support and valuable teachings over the weekend.  I found the Advanced TEFL extremely useful and it was great to look into some aspects of language teaching in more detail. It was great to share views and ideas with fellow-teachers and look forward to using some of the activities in my class over the next months."



"Sheila, you and your course are great : highly motivating and intense and I now feel so much more confident,  enthusiastic and excited about teaching!"



"During the Advanced TEFL course Sheila talked about and had us reflect on a lot of very useful aspects of teaching. I came home with dozens of great new teaching ideas which I can't wait to put into practice. It was also a wonderful opportunity to meet other English teachers from around the world who willingly shared their experience and expertise. This course is perfect for already practicing TEFL teachers who wish to further their professional training, pick up new teaching tools and refresh their enthusiasm for their great yet ever challenging job. Thank you Sheila..You're tops! Hope to meet again soon!"



"I really liked the course because I shared opinions with my collegues and I had a lot of suggestions on how to improve certain areas I am not very good at. I particularly loved to see new resources on the net I didn't know about. Thank you!"



"Your Advanced TEFL course was a terrific experience.  It provided me with tons of valuable, useful input and info which I will exploit and draw inspiration from for my classes! It was also highly enjoyable and gave me a sense of achievement.  Thanks to your constant and cheerful encouragement! Thank you a thousand times!"



"I really enjoyed joining this advanced TEFL course because I received very clear explanations, useful material for my professional growth and very good suggestions which will improve my teaching style. Last, but not least, I had the opportunity to practice English with native speakers and near native speakers with whom I shared lots of important information."



"An enriching experience: Sheila is the perfect coach you need in order to improve your skills!"



"Sheila, I want to thank YOU for being such a wonderful Teacher, Trainer, Mentor and Guide. It is hard to describe you and your ways to people who don't know you, because our words never seem enough. But whenever I talk to someone who has already worked with you and attended one of your courses, we end up looking at each smiling, saying:"Sheila is Sheila. Unique!".  During your classes, when we talk, you never ever said once "it's wrong, it's not like that, etc..", you have this incredible ability of finding Positive everywhere. "Constructive, passionate, humble, inspiring, deep and thorough is your way of coaching and teaching. Open, full, encouraging are your smiles and your words. Thank you Sheila, because anytime I arrive there I feel doubtful and overwhelmed. Anytime I then leave and complete your courses, I feel full of resources and new energy, ideas, hope, techniques, suggestions and solutions to put into action! This TEFL ADVANCED course was amazing. You helped me clear all my doubts and gave me a new professional insight. I am grateful and I am looking forward to attending your next course soon."
