• Small Class Sizes:
We ensure that our training groups are kept small, with an average of 10 students. This allows you to get the individual attention and feedback that you need to succeed.

• Highly-Experienced & Qualified TEFL Instructors:
Our instructors are training professionals, many of whom hold an MA TESOL (even a PhD). With extensive experience in teaching English to adults, they will equip you with the skills and knowledge you need for a successful career as an English language teacher.

• Teaching Practice with Real Students:
Our trainees quickly progress from initial theory classes to teaching practice with real students. You will have daily classes teaching immigrants to the U.S. who are working professionals. Many of them are from Central America or South America and speak little or no English. Advanced English classes are also available for teaching practice.

• Make New Friends:
Our students come from all continents, united by the common goal of obtaining TEFL certification. They become friends during the course. They study together and meet outside course hours to spend their free time together in exploring the places tourists visit.

Student Testimonials:

Photos of International TEFL Training Institute, New York"The TESOL course has helped me grow professionally and personally. I took the four-week, intensive 120-hour program in New York...It is a demanding course, but it is really worth it.

The staff at the Institute is fully committed and works hard towards helping their students (future teachers) with their daily assignments and lesson plans, observation of their classes and professional advice on where to focus their attention as well as how to handle the classroom by acquiring classroom management knowledge that the teacher needs to have before he/she enters the classroom. They focus on helping their students in learning how to teach communication skills and how to evaluate their students continuously."

- Katerina

"Even as time passes, I still use what I learned in our TEFL certification course almost daily in my classroom. I haven’t left the country yet, I am teaching ESL in New York. I registered for the TEFL course in order to be a better teacher to all those immigrants whose life I personally impact with my work as a teacher. And I understand that this is only possible if I have the proper qualification."

The best thing about this course was its practical approach to teaching. I believe that the focus on meaningful context and the objectives we set for each class distinguishes me now from teachers I met later on who did not have a comparable training. The number of practice teaching hours for each participating trainee also set this course apart from other similar certificate courses. 

The amount of teaching hours had me feel extremely comfortable with EFL students as I walked into the classroom towards the end of the course.  The daily feedback of my peers and the trainers helped me advance rapidly towards higher levels of performance during my instructional practices.

The trainers, by the way, were excellent coaches.  Their support, dedication to teaching, and true interest in my personal progress deserve my deepest respect."
