Studying Tips

When you sign up for an online course you choose to be your own tutor. You are usually assigned a time frame to complete all the modules; however, you work at the pace you set. This means you can finish before the allotted time, or you can ask to extend your studying period. Once you enroll, you can access Notting Hill College Learning Management System (NHC-LMS) where you will be able to download course materials, access your quizzes and exam section, and order your certificate. The length of time it takes to complete the course depends on your other commitments. The average duration to finish a Foundation TEFL Course is 1 month. Bearing in mind that it takes 5.5 or 6.5 hours usually to assimilate the materials and finish the task sheets, 10 hours to finish quizzes and 15 hours to finish the task-based exam. However, we recommend one module per day to give you time to effectively absorb the materials and get the maximum benefit from your course. At this pace, you can complete the course whilst giving you enough time to thoroughly learn the materials. But the choice is completely yours.
