In-Class TESOL Certification Programs:
The in-class TESOL teacher training programs are designed for upper-intermediate to advanced level international students and Canadians who want to learn how to teach English to speakers of other languages. We offer:
- 4-week in-class TESOL certificate program (50 hours) - ideal for students who want to acheive an understanding of the fundamentals of ESL teaching and its practice.
- 8-week in-class TESOL diploma program (100 hours) - more suitable for students who wish to study for a longer period and in more depth.
These programs focus on the communicative approach and include methodology, teaching theories, teaching strategies, and practical techniques for teaching English grammar, speaking, reading, listening, and writing. The programs also highlight the use of various elements such as music, art, and drama in the classroom.
These are intensive and exciting programs that include an integrated practicum with a lot of student presentations and practice teaching to prepare students to teach in the real classroom!
Online TESOL Courses:
The online TESOL teacher training programs are distance education programs that can be completed from anywhere in the world and are designed for international students and Canadians who are unable to attend classes at the school. They are ideal for students who are self-motivated and give the students the advantage to work in the comfort of their own home at their own pace. We offer:
- Online TESOL certificate (50 hours). Students can start the program any Monday and choose to complete it in 4, 8 or 12 weeks.
- Online TESOL diploma (100 hours). Students can start the program any Monday and choose to complete it in 4, 8, 12 or 16 weeks.
The online programs focus on the communicative approach and cover the same topics as the in-class programs which include methodology, teaching theories, teaching strategies, and practical teaching techniques required for teaching in the real classroom.
Students receive the institute's study pack which includes the textbook, DVD, study schedule, as well as guidelines for completing the assignments for each unit of the program and communicate with their instructors through e-mail.
