FAQ 1: How Do I Choose The Best TESOL / TEFL Certification Course?

Knowing how to supplement the textbook with communicative activities and authentic material (Ei: songs, movies, news stories, podcasts, and other media) is a very important skill that you must have as an ESL teacher. Whether you are planning to teach English abroad or in an English immersion program at home, the textbook is often outdated and boring. In some countries, there isn’t even a textbook to follow because students cannot afford one. For this reason, learning to create professional lesson plans using the Communicative Language Teaching method is the most important reason for taking a TESOL / TEFL / TESL certification course.

FAQ 2: How Does OnTESOL Offer the Best Training?

Most courses out there offer an introduction to TESOL / TEFL / TESL methodology. This means that they introduce the topic of lesson planning but they do not assess their trainees via lesson planning assignments that follow the international formats (Ei: PPP, TBL, ESA, etc). Some courses do not even require trainees to create a single lesson plan and they assess via reflection essays and multiple-choice tests only.

After completing your advanced TESOL course with OnTESOL, you will be able to create fun and effective lesson plans using authentic materials, integrated skills activities, role-playing, simulations, drama in the classroom, storytelling, debating techniques, presentations, and many more strategies and techniques.

OnTESOL Reviews:

Teaching English in CanadaEven after completing a Bachelor of Education, Master’s Degree in Educational Psychology with a thesis on English Language Learner Achievement, two years teaching in South Korean international schools and five years teaching in Canadian public secondary schools, which includes international programming, I found OnTESOL’s program incredibly useful, relevant, theoretically sound and pedagogically inspiring. Not only is this program fundamental for those who wish to teach abroad, but it is also practical and helpful for teachers working with international students who need greater insight into linguistic development, language learner needs and adapted teaching strategies.

Geordy Reid - Teaching English in Canada

Teaching English in South KoreaI had a very accommodating tutor named Danielle. Though we didn’t get to see other, I felt very comfortable with her. I value and really appreciate her efforts and time on checking my assignments, especially when I was having trouble in making a lesson plan. I learned so much with my tutor. The ideas that she shared had been a great help in my class. Thank you for the great experience OnTESOL!

Teresa Legria - Teaching English in South Korea

Teaching English in ThailandThe course was really helpful and beneficial. I have been an ESL for 3 years but I still learned a lot and I am now a much more effective teacher. I finished the course feeling more confident because I am better equipped after in taking the 120-hour TEFL certificate course with OnTESOL. Furthermore, the tutors are great. They encourage you to ask questions and they also provide lots of comments and feedback. They are really committed in your learning. Choosing OnTESOL is a very good decision!

Teaching Abroad vs Teaching Immersion Programs at Home

Teaching abroad and teaching immersion programs

Teaching Abroad TESOL certification Teaching abroad is a great way to travel the world while doing a job that makes a difference in the lives of many people. Most people teach English abroad for a year or two, but there are plenty of highly paid job opportunities in native-English countries, so there are thousands of teachers who continue their TESOL career at home or keep traveling around the world. The advanced TESOL courses offered by OnTESOL provide great flexibility to native-English speakers from Canada, USA, UK, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa who want a credential that is accepted abroad and also at home.
