TESOL Certification Chile

Teach English in Chile with an Accredited TESOL Certification

The minimum TESOL certification requirement in Chile is 120 hours. If your plan is to teach English in Santiago, where there is a larger number of private language institutes and the possibility to teach Business English, OnTESOL recommends a combination of the Advanced 120-hour TESOL Certificate with a 20-hour specialist (TEYL or Business English).



The first 120 hours will give you everything you need to teach English in Chile. This course will take you through different learning styles, the Communicative Approach, Lesson Planning, Teaching Grammar and Vocabulary Communicatively, and Teaching Integrated Language Skills. By the end of this course, you will know how to teach English using a variety of lesson plan formats such as PPP, TBL, and ESA. Instead of posting grammar rules on the board, you will know how to integrate the language point with fun speaking activities so your students learn faster. When you teach English using the Communicative Approach, your students have more fun and learn better.


Each add-on specialist is $299, but you can add a TEYL, TBEC, and/or TEO specialist for only $100 when you register in an online TESOL course with OnTESOL.
