TESOL Course Aims
Our convenient, short format 60-hour TESOL course aims to provide you with a solid foundation in the world of English language teaching. The course contents are designed to cover a wide range of essential skills and knowledge that will help you to confidently begin your own personal TESOL journey.
Please note that many employers will insist on their teachers having a certificate of 120 hours or more (see our 120-hour certificate course here).
TESOL Course Content
The instruction materials for our 60-hour course mainly focus on the fundamental teaching skills that are required to prepare and deliver an effective lesson in the classroom. Some of the areas covered include teaching theories and methodologies, classroom management, lesson planning and how to test and evaluate your students’ progress. As this is a short format style course it does not have sufficient time to cover language awareness and some other important components that are included in our more comprehensive 120-hour TESOL course.
The course is organized into 10 individual units that have been carefully selected to ensure they 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 you feel comfortable with.
