COVID19 and TESOL Certification
With current restrictions due to COVID-19 and subsequent online learning acceleration, the Teach TESOL program provides educators and students alike the opportunity to engage with the process of leaning regardless of shifting circumstance.
Our 210-hour TESOL course is best for candidates who wish to build on a more specialised base of knowledge for international English language learning markets and handle a variety of English lessons and courses highly in demand today. There are many groups of English language learners to cater for and they have a range of different needs and objectives. Adequate preparation in general topics that correspond to those needs and objectives will empower the Teach educator to organize and execute optimized lesson plans effectively for a wide range of learners. The young learner English segment is projected to continue growing substantially as different countries integrate English language lessons into their curricula in the primary years. Similarly, the market segment for teaching English to adults continues to thrive because of the use of English as an international lingua franca in the major industries, particularly in education and business.
