As Asia contains the largest markets for English language teachers, there are plenty of TESOL training centers to choose from throughout the region. We have three training centers in Thailand, a popular destination for teaching English abroad. Our other popular Asian options include Cambodia, Indonesia, Japan, Nepal, South Korea, and Vietnam.
Our European destinations for gaining a TESOL certification include three of the most popular teaching locations in the region: France, Italy, and Spain. We also offer our in-class TESOL course in the Czech Republic and Germany, both of which have a strong market for overseas English teachers.
In North America we have a TESOL training center right in the heart of New York City, USA. If you would prefer to study in Central or South America, you can choose from our training centers in Argentina, Colombia, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Mexico and Peru.
Outside of the above regions, we have one other top-class TESOL training center in Alexandria, Egypt. Like all our other training centers across the world, our center in Alexandria provides the highest quality training under the expert guidance of highly experienced teacher trainers.
1) Overall cost
It is important to take into account other incidental costs when choosing your location for a four-week course. Perhaps the most expensive additional cost will be accommodation. Four weeks in Tokyo city center will obviously be vastly more expensive than four weeks in a small city in Cambodia.
2) Travel requirement (visas etc)
Many countries will have entry, length of stay and exit restrictions. You should familiarize yourself with all these before paying for a course. Some countries only give a 30 day visa, which if you intend staying after your four-week course is finished, would need extending. Make sure you know all the regulations and keep your passport and visa status current and legal.
3) Getting a job
If you know which country you would like to work in once certified, then it would make sense to do a certification course in that country (if possible). This will give you a clear advantage when looking for your first teaching job. Firstly, your teaching practice experience will be with speakers of that country, which will give you a head start. Secondly, you will be able to monitor job vacancies and apply for them in country, which is always an advantage.
