Selling TEFL Concept

Unread postby rickmarj » 14 Nov 2010, 14:32

Thank you for your help.
I have recently moved to Beira Mozambique. Portuguese is the spoken language.

I need to present the TEFL concept to various companies. TEFL is a new idea here and I don't really know where to begin. I have been to various companies who like the idea, but have asked for a presentation. I thought of advertising for beginners, intermediate and advanced. Need to keep it simple as am recently qualified. I did the 140hr course.

How many hours should the beginner group need, I thought of 15 - 20hrs
The same for intermediate and advanced levels.

Any ideas and advice would be greatly appreciated, I really need to make it work.

Thank you

Marj

I think you need more levels than this. Will you be using a book? If so study the book. You will need much more than 20 hours of study for most books/levels. One course may be 3 or 4 hours a week for 3 months - for example. Usually it takes an academic year to complete one level. However, it really depends on how often the students have class, and how much opportunity they have to practice.
