Upgrade to our most advanced TESOL qualification with this 100 hour TESOL course upgrade. Designed to take you from the 120 hour Premier or 150 hour Premier Plus TESOL courses, it is ideal if you want a prestigious qualification and better worldwide job opportunities. 

Delve into the fascinating areas of linguistics and phonology; concepts few other TESOL courses cover. Master the concepts that enable you to go further with your learners and impress employers at the same time.

You’ll learn phonemic script, understand why different nationalities struggle with English pronunciation, how sounds are produced in the vocal tract, approaches to teaching language, the importance of intonation and stress and plenty more. We link to some of the best audio and video to bring the course to life and illustrate key concepts.

Why this course?

Our guided, tutor-supported programme gives you the chance to build on the essential components of English language teaching covered in your initial TESOL course. This 100 hour upgrade element then goes deeper into the Phonetics, Phonology and Linguistics to give you a fuller appreciation of your students’ needs, equipping you to help them improve their English while giving you a unique, high-level qualification to help you stand out in the TESOL world.

''The course was brilliantly thorough and informative without overloading me with unnecessary information. The website is always being updated with news of careers and improvements. Everything was absolutely balanced to perfection and I wouldn't change a thing.''
Tatiana Parshina, GE TESOL Master course graduate

How the course works

You can complete this course via our interactive website, where you’ll need a good broadband connection, or offline in PDF and Word. Both methods come with access to a personal student area where you can meet your tutor, work through your material and view the latest TESOL jobs worldwide via our jobs feed.

For the offline course, after downloading your first module (there are 2 in total before a final more in-depth written assignment) you can work offline/online as you wish. There are short tasks and in-depth activities throughout the course. You upload each module when finished for full marking and feedback from your tutor. Access recorded teaching segments, podcasts and explore some of the top EFL material on the web today to keep you interested & motivated. We've made this course as flexible and easy for you to access as possible.

Student Comments

This is the 5th online course that I have done with Global English. I completed the Cert.(ES)TESOL course in February 2008, and have since done the Business English course, the English Grammar course, TEYL and now the Cert.(TM)TESOL up-grade course. 

I thought about it for some time, but decided to do the up-grade course for two reasons - interest in the subjects, and to continue my professional development. I found the upgrade course very thought provoking. The background knowledge of phonetics and phonology in Module 1 was very interesting, as was the introduction to linguistics covered in Module 2. 

The Final Assignment was the most challenging part of the course. Researching the distinction between language acquisition and language learning is relevant for English language teachers, and evaluating my own experience of language learning and teaching helped to make it more personal and memorable. 

I've learned so much, and look forward to putting some of that knowledge to good use. 

I have found all the tutors at GE to be very professional, and the service is outstanding. Course work is marked quickly, and queries are often answered the same day. My tutor was very supportive, and she always gave very helpful comments on my work. Thank you, Clare, for all your help and encouragement. 

I'm a bit sad that I have finished with GE, but am happy with the time that I was a GE trainee. Many thanks to everyone at Global English.

Great clarity: the reader knows what is being presented, why, and what is expected from them, and where they are in relation to everything else in the course - clear well-thought out progression

There is continual encouragement for 'Further Research' for those wishing to go a bit deeper / build up their teaching material/examples, as well as many original teaching ideas.

There is continual support and reassurance and students are always clear how many points are awarded for a certain tasks.

Level 4 has been a great investment and my new Head wrote to congratulate me and has earmarked me for a payrise in September. I loved the study booklets and the clear practical explanations and suggestions.

I am due to teach at summer school again so there is a possibility of starting the Advanced course at the end of August. I am going to do it - I am just deciding when.

Does the Advanced course have nice study booklets too?
