120hr Online TEFL


The Cape Town TEFL/TESOL Training Institute incl. TESOLSA is excited to present our new 120hr Online TEFL course!

As we were the first institute to offer TEFL in South Africa, opening our doors in 1991, we found it a little difficult to let go of some of the more traditional aspects of TEFL training. For years we hesitated to take our courses fully online and into the 21st Century, holding fast to the idea that one must do an in-class course to have any merit to their certification.

However, we understand that modern life is not slowing down, but rather getting increasingly faster, busier and more expensive. People who should be retiring, who should be focused on their careers or families, or people who should be fully engaged in their studies find themselves in need of supplementing their income – and what better way than by taking a few hours out of your week to teach English? Whether it’s in class locally, online, or taking a whole new step in life and beginning an overseas adventure.

So, we’ve taken the pulse of the people, we’ve listened to what you desire and we understand that many of you who want to do this course simply cannot take time out of your busy lives to commit to an in-class course – let alone those of you who don’t live in Cape Town.

And that’s why we’ve recreated our Online TEFL course to make it better, more accessible, more comprehensive and more affordable. We’ve made it 120hrs so you can meet the minimum requirements when applying for work. We’re moving it all online, so you can access the modules from the comfort of your own home. We’ve included introductory TEYLT and TBE modules, so you can be more prepared for diversity in your prospective students. And lastly, we’ve decreased the price to make it more accessible to everyone.
