Teaching English as a Second or Other Language (TESOL) Diploma
The Teaching English as a Second or Other Language (TESOL) Diploma is an 8 week program designed for intermediate to advanced ESL learners interested in teaching ESL to adult learners in their own countries. It may also be suitable for teachers with some previous experience.
Note: Short term teacher training programs are also available to groups by request. These can be customized to run for two weeks or longer and can include activities and excursions, depending on the needs of the group. Please contact GV Calgary for details.
The program includes interactive methodology sessions and weekly peer teaching lessons, including the opportunity to teach one low-level adult ESL class.
The program also includes preparation and entry for the University of Cambridge Teachers' Knowledge Test (TKT).
"TKT offers candidates a step in their professional development as teachers and enables them to move onto higher-level teaching qualifications and access professional support materials, such as journals about English language teaching (ELT)", according to TKT.
