Why Study a TESOL Course with ILAC?

Imagine being able to travel the world, working as you go with never a thought as to how you'll find a job. Imagine having a skill always in demand, at home or abroad, even in uncertain times. As world economies change, at least one thing remains constant: the increasing need for English to communicate internationally. And that means a constant demand for English teachers. Gaining proficiency in the teaching of English as a Second Language (ESL) means doors will always be open to you; your expertise will always be needed.

ILAC has been shaping highly qualified TESOL-certified ESL teachers since 2001. Our graduates have found jobs both locally and abroad. Our one-month TESOL programme will give you the skills and the experience you need to feel at home in front of any class: from beginner students to advanced; from those wanting a brush-up to those hoping to achieve international standards through such long-standing, rigorous and highly regarded achievement tests as TOEFL or Cambridge exams.
