TEFL in China Online is an online only 120-hour EFL course developed in 2020.

Each unit’s content includes charts, tables, and diagrams to support the content. Also included are audios and videos from teachers who are working in China, sharing their own experiences. There are various activities (e.g. Try It, Write About It, Consider This, etc.) to help you reflect on what you are learning, to apply this knowledge, and to integrate information from other units to make sure you’re “getting it.”
The TEFL in China Online course has very clear goals. By the end of this course, you will be able to:
understand and utilize current TEFL methodology and practices in the Chinese TEFL classroom;
understand, describe, plan, and apply the key aspects of English Language Teaching (ELT) in a variety of Chinese contexts;

Candidates who attend the TEFL in China training will be awarded a TEFL in China certificate issued by the Foreign Talent Research Center, Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST). The certificate is officially recognized as a qualification for teaching English throughout China, and it provides an excellent credential for entering the TEFL profession.
