Welcome to Christian TEFL

Open up a world of Opportunities

We offer accredited online TEFL courses for people looking to teach English as a foreign language either in a Christian service environment or in paid English teaching jobs worldwide.  No teaching experience is necessary; we’ll take you step-by-step through the English teaching essentials with the support of a Christian personal tutor. You’ll train through our sister site Global English – one of the most established online TESOL course providers in the UK with over 24 years’ experience and a top provider rating on TrustPilot.

If you are looking to get started in church-based ESOL outreach, we offer a 70 hour teaching ESOL course – an ideal qualification to give you the skills and confidence to teach English right where you are and reach out to internationals, asylum seekers and migrants in your own locality. We also support UK churches who want to set up ESOL projects locally through our church-based teaching ESOL packages.

As a  registered charity, we’re unique in the TEFL world as we share 100% of our profits between our mission partners and UK Christian ESOL projects. Why not get started with Christian TEFL today?

Online church-based English classes in London

Interview with Mary Girma from Inspire Saint James church, Clerkenwell, London, on TEFL training with Christian TEFL and English language teaching outreach to second language speakers in London, UK, 2021 throughout lockdown. It’s been a joy leading live English teacher training sessions with a group of six dedicated Christians from Inspire St James church Clerkenwell, London.  With their Zoom courses now complete, we caught up with their Ministry worker Mary to see how they’ve been using this training in local outreach and how their online English classes are progressing.

Hands up for Hands-on Training!

What is one of the most exciting things about working for Christian TEFL? I think it’s the opportunity to train church members seeking to reach out to marginalised communities around them through teaching English. In doing this, these committed Christian trainees provide a fantastic community service. They seek to build up community cohesiveness and offer practical support with everyday functional English lessons. This helps those who are disenfranchised and give them the opportunity to build community relationships.

Teaching mixed ability groups doesn’t have to be this hard

If you are teaching groups, it’s likely you’ve faced the conundrum of teaching mixed abilities within the same group. How to select material at right level for everyone, stretching the more able while supporting the weaker class members?  There’s a risk of pleasing no-body and the mixed ability issue is a common teacher headache. So, if you teach groups and this sounds familiar, we’ve got some suggestions to help.
