From this system you will be able to access the course materials which you can choose to either study online or download to your own computer.

When you are sure that you have fully absorbed the materials for unit one, your understanding of its contents will be assessed after which you can move on to the following unit. Once you have worked through all the units you will then be required to complete a final essay writing task. The essay will be submitted online for assessment by an online tutor. On successful completion of the essay, you will graduate from the course.

TESOL course Aims

Our best-selling 120-hour course will give you a comprehensive introduction to the world of English language teaching. Once you have successfully completed the course, you should have developed a good working knowledge of English grammar, as well as a variety of skills and techniques that will help you to deliver interesting and productive lessons in the classroom.

TESOL course Content

The 120-hour course contains two main subject areas - teaching skills and language awareness. The sections dedicated to teaching skills cover the techniques and skills you will need in the classroom including teaching theories and methodologies, classroom management, lesson planning and how to test and evaluate your students’ progress. The sections dedicated to language awareness focus on grammar subjects including the parts of speech and the English tense system, as well as some other important subjects such as pronunciation.

The course is organized into 20 individual units that have been specifically designed to provide a gradual build up of knowledge, without overloading you with too much information at any one time. This convenient layout allows you to work through the course materials at whatever pace suits your own personal circumstances.

Option 1: You can find a school or language center of your choice (either in-class or online) and teach your lessons there. The school will sign off that you have completed these lessons and your documents will be sent to ITTT for verification.

Option 2: You can find your own student/s and teach the lessons independently at a location of your choice, either face-to-face or remotely. You will need to video one of these sessions (1 hour) and send it to ITTT with your other documentation for verification.
