In-class certification for TESOL

We take great pride in presenting our popular in-class TESOL certification course across a range of international locations. This mode of instruction enjoys significant popularity for its inherent benefits. Specifically, many students find face-to-face engagement with experienced teacher trainers to be more impactful than navigating course content on their own.

In-class TESOL course basics

ITTT's in-class TESOL courses are structured to last four weeks, generally requiring attendance from Monday to Friday. Each day is packed with a variety of input sessions, and some days feature hands-on teaching practice. Weekends are usually set aside for leisure, offering you the opportunity to discover the local area, socialize with classmates, or simply relax and recharge for the week ahead. One of the standout advantages of this in-person format is the community aspect; many students find that the friendships and professional connections formed within the study group significantly enrich the overall learning experience.

TEFL In-class Courses

In-class TESOL course trainers

At ITTT, our trainer recruitment process is meticulously designed to enlist only those with significant qualifications and extensive experience from diverse ESL classrooms worldwide. The invaluable advantage of learning from professionals who not only have a deep reservoir of knowledge but also the ability to resolve questions and explain complex subjects is immeasurable. By choosing one of our in-class TESOL certification courses, you are assured of receiving guidance from industry-leading trainers, enriching your educational experience.

In-class TESOL course teaching practice

In our classroom-based TESOL courses, a significant focus is placed on practical teaching experience, enabling you to put into action the insights gained from the input sessions. These input sessions cover a broad range of ESL subjects, from teaching methodologies to strategies for effective classroom management. Following these sessions, you will transition into real-world ESL classrooms to test your newly-acquired teaching skills. Each practice lesson is carefully planned under the watchful eye of a course trainer, who will also observe your teaching and provide detailed feedback in a comprehensive debriefing session afterward. This hands-on approach allows you to hone your teaching abilities in a supportive and constructive setting, ensuring you are well-prepared before taking on your first teaching role.
