SIT TESOL Certificate Course:
Photo of TESOL Certification in Santa Fe, New MexicoThe SIT TESOL Certificate course is a 130 hour course that provides practical training in all of the fundamental aspects of teaching the English language whether you’re considering teaching English abroad (EFL) or teaching ESL at home. These include: pronunciation, speaking, listening, reading, writing, grammar, and culture.

Participants also learn how to plan a lesson, evaluate its effectiveness, and develop strategies for continuous professional growth. In addition to these, participants learn all about finding overseas jobs and navigating through the plentiful resources related to teaching English overseas.

Focus of the TESOL Certificate course:

Learning:
Participants engage in a language-learning experience in order to explore the relationship between language learning, teaching, and aspects of second language acquisition from the point of view of the learner. This experience provides the foundation for the examination of ESOL teaching practices. By putting participants in the place of the language learner, it gives them the necessary sensitivity they will need for teaching English overseas.

Teaching:
Participants examine the theory & practice of planning, teaching, grammar, culture, and assessing lessons in the four skills (speaking, listening, reading, and writing) through experiential activities, teaching demonstrations, discussions, lesson planning, materials development, and readings. Fundamental principles of ESL/EFL language teaching and learning are covered in order to prepare participants for careers in teaching English overseas or in their communities.

Classroom practices:
Participants put their new knowledge and skills into practice through 18 teaching sessions with real learners. Trainers observe and facilitate feedback sessions after these lessons. Participants learn to reflect on and assess their own teaching as well as to examine the teaching of their peers. Through this process, participants develop reflective teaching skills that help them grow as ESL/EFL teachers long after the course is over and they’ve begun teaching English abroad.
