What is TESOL? TESOL is the acronym – Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages.

English is the most widely spoken and common second language in the world. It is the language used for global business, trade, research, science, technology, and the Internet. This means learning to speak English is a necessity for people in non-English speaking countries in order for them to get a good job, trade, do business, travel, study abroad, and fully use the Internet.

The need for TESOL teachers has exploded and continues to rise as global demand continues to increase. Native English speakers and non-native fluent English speakers are constantly sought after to work in Asian, European, South American, and Middle Eastern countries in fact, almost everywhere in non-English speaking parts of the world.

Teaching your native English language to others is a rewarding experience both financially and personally. Through teaching English as a Second Language (ESL) you can travel to exotic countries, learn about new and exciting cultures, make new international friends, change your lifestyle and so much more.

Experience the freedom to live and work in exotic locations around the world, work from home, the beach, or even on the road while you’re travelling. Enjoy the flexibility of choosing your own work hours and schedule to fit in with your lifestyle.

Teaching English as a second language online or overseas is easy. Lessons are conversational with fun topics and dialogues. Overseas and online ESL schools have their own prepared lessons for you to teach, so no need for time-consuming lesson planning.

Whether you teach overseas, privately tutor in Australia, or teach online you get to choose the place and the time.

Our International TESOL Certificate will give you all the knowledge and practical skills to fully prepare you for the international TESOL industry with the most up-to-date teaching resources, training and teaching observation videos, and teaching methodology.

Testimonials

"Thank you for all of the practical instruction throughout the course. The videos are so great and very clear. They ensured I knew how to study the course properly. I'm now teaching in Japan and loving it!" - Meg Y

 

"I am still in China, having taught English here at a University for one year and am now settled into my second year with an offer to extend another year. I am so grateful for your assistance and so pleased I did your course. It has enabled me to hit the ground running, making it easy to prepare lessons and delivering them at the right level. It seems I am quite popular with my classes being over-subscribed each Semester. So to come here was a very good move for me. I am enjoying China. I work only 4 afternoons each week so I travel each 'long weekend' and holidays. I love my students. They are motivated, bright and respectful." - Ross C

 

"The course was invaluable, covering the fundamentals of teaching English as a second language. The course itself was well-designed, practical, informative, and fun!! Lynette Kim, the course instructor, was professional, attentive, and made the learning process a breeze. In a very short time, I had secured a permanent online teaching job with a global company and this has been my sole income for nearly three years." - Justin M
