Advanced TEFL Weekend

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 upon their current teaching practices.

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 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 tools to add to their "teacher toolbox" while gaining additional knowledge and valuable insight for 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.

Course Reviews



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.
