If you decide to complete your TESOL certification course online you don’t need to worry that you are compromising on the theory of ESL teaching as our courses cover all of the most vital subjects you will need to be familiar with. The 120-hour TESOL course is our most popular online course option and it includes 20 in-depth units that walk you through all the main subjects that are necessary if you want to enter the classroom on your first day feeling confident in your teaching knowledge. A large part of the materials look into English grammar subjects and how you can teach them effectively. Within this part of the course you will study topics such as the tense system, conditionals, modals, passive voice and much more. Initially you might feel a little wary of these subjects, but with the help of our clear and informative materials you should soon get a solid grasp on them.
Although English grammar subjects take up a large percentage of the course, the materials also provide extensive coverage of classroom management issues. Wherever you happen to be in the world and whoever you happen to be teaching, if you are unfamiliar with the basics of organising and controlling a classroom your life could be much tougher than it needs to be. The course also includes several other very important areas of study, such as teaching methodologies, how to use classroom materials effectively, the use of technology in the classroom, and how to test and evaluate your students.
