New to the field of Teaching English as a Foreign Language and dream of a career teaching English overseas or in the U.S? Our foundation courses provide a 120-hours of TEFL instruction and the essential skills to become an English teacher anywhere in the world. These teacher-trainer courses will focus on the theory of TEFL, pronunciation and fluency, writing, and oral presentations.

Teaching English is an option for those who just graduated and would like to explore the world, for those looking for a mid-career change, or for those who are retired and would like to volunteer teach in the community. A TEFL award of completion can open doors to numerous opportunities and adventures.
