Gain both knowledge + teaching experience
We asked English as a Second Language (ESL) schools what they look for when hiring teacher - their answer was practical placement with real teaching experience. It is so important that when you finish your TESOL Course, you actually know how to teach.
We start with using guided tasks and case studies to teach you the theory around lesson planning, classroom management strategies, English language and teaching techniques, resource selection and so much more. We then work with you to develop your skills as a teacher through the practical placement program. This combination of theory and practical is the perfect balance to give you the knowledge, skills and real experience to teach English to speakers of other languages anywhere in the world, regardless of what language is spoken.
