Which TESOL course should I choose?
We offer a wide variety of TESOL certification courses for teaching English as a foreign language that vary in study method, duration, and price, but all of our TESOL courses are founded around the same principles, which are to provide practical, high quality training. The same core materials and practices are used throughout our TESOL courses.
In-Class TESOL Certification Courses
Our in-class TESOL courses, in conjunction with TEFL International, are entirely classroom based. During the course you will have the opportunity to learn about teaching methods, phonology and grammar, while completing observed teaching practice to real students. In-class TESOL certification courses are intensive and are four weeks in duration.
You can choose from over 25 locations in which to complete an in-class course. We provide training facilities in a wide variety of exotic and interesting locations worldwide, with TESOL courses available on six continents.
In-class TESOL certification is suited to people that wish to learn the principles, theories and methodologies of TESOL and also want to gain practical classroom experience teaching English in a supervised environment. All teaching practice sessions are observed by our teacher training staff and you will therefore receive constructive feedback and reports on your strengths and weaknesses when teaching.
Online TESOL Certification Courses
Our online TESOL course is studied entirely online and can be taken with the support of a personal online tutor or without tutor support. Upon completion of the course, we’ll send you a watermarked, hardcopy of your certificate to anywhere in the world via registered post.
As it is an online TESOL course, there is no teaching practice component nor classroom time; however, you will be able to review actual teaching English as a foreign language lessons taking place via our online videos.
Our online TESOL courses are primarily designed for those who wish to study an internationally accredited TESOL certificate course but have neither the time and/or budget to attend one of our international training facilities.
The great advantages of this TESOL certification course is that it is competitively priced, you are able to take the course from anywhere in the world and can study at your own pace.
Combined TESOL Certification Courses
Combined TESOL courses are titled as such because they unite the best of the online and residential TESOL certification courses.
The principles and theories of TESOL are studied online and at your own pace. Once completed, this is followed by attendance at one of our combined course training locations where you will gain actual TESOL classroom practice.
These courses are designed for those who cannot attend our in-class training course for four weeks, but would still like to gain the English teaching practice that our in-class training courses offer. The combined TESOL course requires between five and ten days attendance at one of our training facilities.
The combined TESOL course features observed teaching practice and therefore results in full TESOL certification.
Advanced/Specialized TESOL courses
We offer a range of specialized and advanced-level qualifications for teaching English as a foreign language for teachers that have, or are studying for, TESOL certification.
We offer two specialized courses for those who already hold a TESOL certificate: Certification in Teaching English to Young Learners (CTEYL) and the Certification in Teaching Business English (CTBE). No classroom attendance is required as these are both 50-hour online courses.
The most advanced TESOL qualification we offer is the TESOL diploma. This is a 250-hr, advanced-level course that builds on the knowledge gained from the TESOL certification course. No classroom attendance is required as the TESOL diploma course is a 100% online course. You must already have gained an internationally accredited TESOL certificate in order to be eligible for the TESOL diploma course.
