Our Trinity College London Cert. TESOL course is both intensive and practical.

Emphasis is made on hands-on teaching experience, alongside tutorials on modern English teaching techniques & methodology which can be put into practice in the classroom.

Teaching Methods, Language Awareness & Phonetics:
The theoretical part of the TEFL course, taught through a series of daily lectures and seminars. These modules are internally assessed and externally moderated.

Learning a New Foreign Language:
This part of the TEFL course introduces an unfamiliar language to trainees, as well as introducing a variety of teaching methodologies.

It is essential that our trainees gain an invaluable insight into the many difficulties of learning a foreign language from the learner’s viewpoint.

Trainees must complete a reflective journal which includes an analysis ESL classroom management techniques and methodologies.

Individual Student Profile:
Each TESOL trainee is assigned a foreign student of English to profile. The aim here, through an in-depth analysis, is to discover the various factors, such as cultural background and/or mother tongue language, which affect the learning situation in the EFL classroom.

This essential part is a microcosm of the whole Cert. TESOL course, and is again internally assessed & externally moderated.
