Why TESOL Certification from CCELT?
TESL (Teaching English as a Second Language) or TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) courses teach the methods and best practices of ESL instruction. Teachers who have completed TESL or TESOL courses are prepared to lead classes at home and abroad.
Why TESL/TESOL certification?
Imagine you are standing in front of 30 people and you have been asked to teach them about using the present progressive tense for an hour. Where do you start?
TESOL certification gives you the tools to create an interactive and engaging classroom environment, along with the knowledge to effectively teach English to non-native speakers with appropriate behavior management strategies.
The international teaching field has changed dramatically over the past 10 years, with an increasing number of countries aspiring to improve English proficiency. The demand for ESL teachers has risen accordingly, and as a result, the expectations of public and private institutions hiring ESL teachers have increased.
TESL/TESOL certification provides new ESL teachers the foundation for becoming a successful teacher, and helps create realistic expectations with regards to teaching abroad, job prospects, and life in the classroom. For experienced ESL teachers, obtaining certification enhances any resume, introduces aspects of technology integration in the classroom, and builds on the teacher’s current ESL teaching pedagogy.
