ELS Language Centres’ TESOL Certificate Programme is now offered in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Individuals who are interested in becoming English as Second Language (ESL) or English as Foreign Language (EFL) teachers will find that the course will equip them with the theories and practices to be effective English language teachers.
The TESOL Certificate Programme provides the participants with flexibility and variety which are essential to a good programme.
The programme is a combination of Online Learning, face-to-face classroom discussions and Authentic Practicum teaching sessions. The great advantage of such an arrangement is that the online component enables the participants to read about the theories of TESOL before they come to class to learn how to apply them in their teaching. In addition, participants find the classes less demanding because they can study the theories from the comfort of their homes. Having become familiar with the theories and the practical aspects of teaching, participants are then ready for the Authentic Practicum teaching sessions.
The programme is divided into three sections:
- 80 hours of on-line lessons
- 33 hours of face-to-face sessions, and
- 9 hours of practical teaching sessions
The total duration of the programme is 122 hours.
To enrol in the TESOL Certificate Programme, a participant must meet the following criteria:
a) must be above 21 years of age;
b) must have completed a minimum of a high school education with successful achievement of a high school certificate. Participants who have achieved a diploma or a degree are preferred
c) must have a good command of English. All candidates must sit the ELS English Language Proficiency test upon registration and obtain an equivalent of minimum IELTS Band 6.5;
d) No prior teaching experience is required.
A candidate needs a computer with an Internet connection and an email address. Once registered for the on-line course, participants are provided with a user name, password, and link to get started. The user name and password allows the participants to log in and log out of the course as they wish.
