ABOUT THIS COURSE

Gain the freedom to work and travel the world at the same time by teaching English online or in the classroom


Do you want to teach English, either at home, online, or abroad, but you’re not sure where to start? Our  TESOL Certification course is fully accredited, internationally recognized, and will give you the tools you need to be successful as a teacher of English as a Second Language!

TESOL means Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages, and is sometimes referred to as a TEFL certificate - which means Teaching English as a Foreign Language. With a TESOL/TEFL certificate, you show the schools that you’re applying to that you know how to teach - from lesson planning and classroom management to theory and pedagogical techniques.

Throughout the course, you will get the opportunity to submit lesson plans to experienced TESOL teachers, gaining valuable feedback from experts who have been teaching abroad for years!

You can get your 120 hour TESOL certificate online through IOA, at your own pace, in the comfort of your own home!

Start your accredited TESOL certification online now - your first step to being an English teacher. Where will you go from there? You decide!

In this course, we’ll take you through learning modules that will prepare you for your new adventure. You’ll learn:

  • How to use a student’s primary language to teach them a new language.
  • The basics of linguistics, which will help bridge the gap between the students’ primary language and English.
  • All the reading, writing, speaking, and listening skills you will need to impart in your students.
  • Basic pedagogical techniques
  • Classroom management strategies

One of the best, and most consistently in demand, jobs to get while traveling overseas is TESOL instructor. BUT! Simply because you speak English does not mean that you can teach it, at least not without our help.
