Learn to supplement the textbook with authentic material and apply communicative and task-oriented activities in your every day lessons.

Testimonial “A TESOL certification will give you the confidence to walk into a classroom because you will feel that every part of the lesson has a clear objective. Before I completed my course with OnTESOL, I would play songs for fun to let the time pass by. Now every song or movie I play has a grammatical objective and I don’t have to rely on the textbook as much. I highly recommend OnTESOL!”
