Our 5-day combined TESOL course is a convenient short-format option that might be a good choice if you are currently in North America and are looking to teach English at home or abroad. The course kicks off with an online study section that covers all of the theory side of ESL teaching. Once the online part of the course is complete you then attend one of our training centers for an additional five days of in-class study. The big attraction of this particular course option is it includes additional face to face instruction from a professional teacher trainer that will build on all the things you learned during the initial online study phase.
The in-class study section of the 5-day combined TESOL course can be completed at one of our 15 great locations spread across 13 different US states, or you can attend our center in Toronto, Canada. Many of our training centers are located in major cities, such as Atlanta, Los Angeles, New York, Orlando, San Diego, and San Francisco. However, we also have several centers in smaller locations, including Ann Arbor, Columbus, and Madison. Whichever center you choose to attend, you will receive the same high-quality instruction from our professional teacher trainers in a comfortable and welcoming environment. If you want to get teaching as quickly as possible, but also want the benefit of in-class instruction, the 5-day combined TESOL course might be just what you are looking for.
