Course Aims

The overall aim of this intensive TEFL-TESOL certificate course is to provide a good introduction to current methodology and trends in language teaching. The course can also be conceived as a refresher course to those practicing teachers who would like to appraise their practice in light of newer methods, approaches and attitudes in language teaching.

A subsidiary aim of this course is for teachers to network with other professionals, exchange ideas and build up their repertoire of resources and teaching techniques.

The course is divided into twelve practical workshops followed by a homework assignment. Although the language of instruction is meant to be English and some of the input pertains to the field of English Language Teaching, teachers of other languages can also benefit from taking part as the onus is on methodological principles that can be applied to the teaching of language in general.

The following are some of the more specific objectives of this TESOL-TEFL course:

  • The Preliminary TESOL Certificate is available to those speakers whose first or second language is English and is suitable for those who want to teach in the country of their choice.

  • The Preliminary TESOL Certificate gives candidates the basic skills and knowledge with a strong foundation in TESOL.

  • The Preliminary TESOL Certificate makes candidates aware of the importance of further professional development throughout their career.

  • The Preliminary TESOL Certificate reflects current approaches to TESOL-TEFL.

  • The Preliminary TESOL Certificate encourages candidates to experience what it is like to be a language learner.

  • The Preliminary TESOL Certificate encourages candidates to develop self-evaluation techniques and record progress throughout their course.
