The China ESL TESOL program provides a solid grounding in both the theoretical and practical aspects of teaching English as a second language to kids and adults. The first four week courses present an overview of the theories and emphasize practical hands-on training in a collaborative setting.
The practical aspects of language teaching are of prime importance, so TESOL students engage in classroom observations and practice teaching in a wide range of English programs at China ESL. A strength of the TESOL program is its practical orientation, which is due to its being an integral part of China ESL's large, vibrant, innovative department.
The Certificate in the Teaching of English to Speakers of Other Languages is awarded by China ESL . This qualification is accredited in England by the Qualifications and Curriculum Authority at Level 4 of the National Qualifications Framework. It is accepted by the British Council as an initial TESOL qualification for teachers in its accredited teaching organisations in the UK and in its own teaching operations overseas. To be a part of China ESL TESOL Program, no knowledge of foreign languages or teaching experience required, the only requirement is a good command of the English language
