TESOL Certifications in London | TESOL in England

Take your TESOL Course in London, england and experience the excitement, culture and history of England's capital and most famous city.

London is an ancient city whose history greets you at every turn. To gain a sense of its continuity, stand on Waterloo Bridge at sunset. To the east, the great globe of St. Paul's Cathedral glows golden in the fading sunlight as it has since the 17th century, still majestic amid the modern towers of glass and steel that hem it in. To the west stand the mock-medieval ramparts of Westminster, home to the "Mother of Parliaments," which has met here or hereabouts since the 1250s. Past them both snakes the swift, dark Thames, following the same course as when it flowed past the Roman settlement of Londinium nearly 2,000 years ago. If the city contained only its famous landmarks -- the Tower of London, Big Ben, Westminster Abbey, Buckingham Palace -- it would still rank as one of the world's top cities.

But London is so much more. It is one of the world's three largest financial centers (alongside New York and Tokyo) with a dominant role in several international financial markets.

The city is also famous for its West End entertainment and shopping district, with locations such as Oxford Street, Leicester Square, Covent Garden and Piccadilly Circus attracting tourists.

The School

Our TESOL course in London is internationally accredited, and your TESOL certificate will enable you to work in the UK or elsewhere around the world. Our London TESOL course training centre is centrally located in the borough of Tower Hamlets, just a step away from everything that makes London so famous.

The London TESOL School is situated in close proximity to a range of public transport options, with Whitechapel and Stepney Green train stations only a five-minute walk away. The centre is also located very close to a variety of thriving restaurants, cafe bars, universities, colleges and shops.

Nearby are the London Eye, the Houses of Parliament, the busy nightlife of Leicester Square, shopping, museums, the theatre district – all this and more easily reached by bus, tube, or taxi if you prefer. Canary Wharf (a major business, office and shopping centre), the City Airport, and Greenwich Park are only a short distance by DLR line, the automated light rail system in London.

We use local non-English-speaking students for the trainees’ teaching practice. Our students are extremely keen and enthusiastic and come to classes purely because they want to. Perfect students for a TESOL teacher training course!

Accommodation

We can offer you several different options for accommodation during your TESOL course in London. You may want to choose a hotel or hostel, where you may stay in a single room or in a dorm together with other London tourists. Alternatively, you may prefer private accommodation: either a room or a shared flat, which is usually the most inexpensive accommodation option in the city. Please bear in mind that some apartments may require a refundable security deposit.

You may want to find accommodation in the city independently, or we can arrange it for you. Should you not be familiar with London, the latter option would certainly be easier, safer, more reliable and would save you a lot of time.

Once you’ve confirmed your place on a TESOL course in London, you can contact the TESOL school direct with your housing requirement as soon as you can. They will take your preferences and requirements into consideration and do all they can to find the accommodation you’d prefer.

    Course deposits must be paid to our administrative center. Credit/debit card payments are the fastest and cheapest way to pay, but we also accept payments via Western Union, Pay Pal and bank transfer. While there are no deadlines for a deposit, courses can fill up quickly and your seat will only be reserved after the deposit has been paid.

    Once you make your deposit, you will receive an email with an informational packet that provides detailed information about the course and London itself.

    Course fees are all-inclusive so you won’t be asked to pay additional costs for course related materials or services. This also includes course moderation and accreditation fees, airport/bus station pick-ups* and lifetime job assistance.

    * Pick-ups are available from 8:00 a.m. - 6:30 p.m. on the WED, THUR, FRI and SAT before the course begins.

  • What travel documents will I need for england?

    Expand

    This information is specific to your country of origin. For the most accurate and current information regarding travel documents for the UK, please contact your nearest British consulate. There is also a very good chance that all the information you require (application documents, application fees, duration of processing documents) is available on the embassy’s webpage.

  • What is the course schedule?

    Expand

    From Monday to Friday there are input sessions every morning from 9:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. during which trainees learn classroom management, grammar and other practical aspects of the course. Lunch is from 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. From 2:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. trainees prepare their lessons (with the assistance of their instructors) and then teach them to real ESL students. These lessons are followed by feedback from the instructors. Our goal is to provide six to ten hours of observed teaching practice over the four-week course. These lessons are taught from Monday to Thursday. On Friday, trainees are free after 1:00 p.m. and the weekend is also free. In addition to these hours, there is also time that must be spent preparing materials and completing various assignments.

  • What can I expect during teaching practice?

    Expand

    We use local non-English-speaking students for the trainees’ teaching practice. Our students are very keen and enthusiastic and come to classes purely because they want to!

    Lessons are based upon real teaching resources found all over the world and you will have the chance to create your own materials as well. You will receive the aid of your course trainer throughout lesson planning and receive immediate feedback on your lesson after it’s been delivered. Practicum is assessed and a satisfactory assessment is required to earn your TEFL/TESOL certificate.

  • Who usually attends the course?

    Expand

    On average, we have around 20 trainees enrolled on each course. Most of our participants are from English-speaking countries such as: the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada or Australia. We do accept non-native speakers of English who have a high proficiency in the language.

  • Is there a dress code?

    Expand

    For all input and tutorial sessions at the training location, there is only one specific dress requirement: Both men and women should have a shirt covering their shoulders. The course operates from within a school so we ask you to be mindful of this, as well as being mindful of your peers and to respect the fact that you are a visitor in another country.

    During teaching practice there are specific requirements that adhere to the local dress code. All trainees are expected to dress professionally according to the following guidelines:

    Women: Shoulders should be covered, blouses with sleeves are suggested. No low-cut necklines, very short skirts or bare midriffs. Open-toed shoes are acceptable, but not hiking or flip-flop sandals.

    Men: Long pants, slacks or trousers are required, jeans are not acceptable. Short or long-sleeved shirts with a collar are necessary, although a tie is not required. Loafers or dress shoes are both fine, sandals are not acceptable. Long hair should always be tied back.

  • What should I bring for course studies?

    Expand

    The only thing you will really need for the course is a notepad and something to write with. If you have a laptop and would like to bring it, you are welcome to do so as the center offers free Wi-Fi.
