About the OnTESOL Method

Recognized by TESL Canada and ACTDEC UK

Integrated Skills

Attempts to communicate should be encouraged from the very beginning.  OnTESOL will teach you how to integrate grammar and vocabulary lessons with the development of the four macroskills — speaking, listening, reading and writing –.

Meaning is Paramount

Teaching grammar is a very important part of an ESL class, but writing grammar rules on the board for the students to memorize is ineffective. A grammatical structure may have different meanings and, more importantly, natural language acquisition processes require students to be exposed to memorable real life situations.  All our courses include a comprehensive grammar module and prepare trainees to write at least one communicative grammar lesson plan.

Teaching in Context

Contextualization is a basic premise of the OnTESOL method because meaning cannot be understood out of context. An accredited course by OnTESOL will teach you how to be creative when presenting a grammar point and it will teach you how to use communicative activities for students to practice the newly acquired language point.

What do your favourite movie and song have in common? Grammar! OnTESOL will teach you how to use songs, movies, TV shows, newspaper articles, games, and online media to integrate grammar and vocabulary lessons with speaking, reading, listening, and writing skills.

Lesson Planning

Lessons planning skills are at the core of an effective curriculum. ESL textbooks are usually ineffective because topics are outdated and activities do not relate to the context that students use when communicating in English. OnTESOL will teach you how to use various lesson planning formats and approaches so that you can create memorable lessons for your students.

What others say about us


I have been taught by a very dedicated and enthusiastic teacher whom I hope someday to become. I am taking with me a lot of ideas, sound knowledge of grammar and phonology for my future career as an ESL teacher

The tutor was so helpful and gave very useful comments on my work. The assignments were excellent and very practical because they gave me good practice in creating my own lesson plans. The TESOL course has definitely given me more confidence in planning lessons and conducting English classes.

I found this online course to be incredibly helpful. I liked the fact that it was so hands on and that it gave me so much practice with designing different kinds of lesson plans. I also liked the course’s emphasis on grammar and phonology, which are areas of teaching that many TEFL teachers don’t know much about but are extremely important nonetheless.
