TEFL (Teach English as a Foreign Language) Certificate and Diploma Courses:

Trinity College London CertTESOL (Certificate in TESOL)
4 week intensive on-site course

The Trinity College London CertTESOL is a preliminary TEFL qualification which is recognised globally and fully accredited by the British Council. TLI runs 4 week intensive courses leading to the award of the Certificate at our premises in the centre of Edinburgh, Scotland.

When you are here you will learn how to teach English to speakers of other languages.

Naturally this will involve learning about the different methodologies involved in teaching EFL / ESL but you will also learn about grammar, phonetics and a range of issues surrounding the EFL industry.

Many trainees assume that much of the course will be about grammar and indeed many are put off doing the course because they feel their grammar is poor.

In reality, the course focuses on a communicative approach to teaching so classroom teaching techniques and the Teaching Practice you do will be considered more important.

TEFL Diploma (Trinity LTCL Diploma in TESOL)
12 - 24 month distance learning course (including a 2 week residential component at the end of the course)

If you are already an experienced teacher, have an existing teaching certificate or want to gain a high level qualification that enables you to teach at University level then the Trinity Diploma is a very good option. Course features include:

• The main features of modern English as used communicatively, both in speech and print or writing, and the most usual ways in which people express common attitudes, feelings and relationships in English;

• Ways of teaching English as a foreign, second or international language in a variety of learning/teaching circumstances, at various age-levels and stages of achievement, for various purposes, and to various types of learner and class;

• The development of major approaches to language learning and teaching and important factors which have influenced this development;

• The roles and status of English in the contemporary world; the major differences between English and candidates' L1 (if applicable).

Eight mandatory assignments will be set at regular intervals during the course. Candidates must complete all of these and submit them for marking and comment.

In setting these assignments and other study topics, particular attention will be paid to questions set in Trinity LTCL past examination papers.
