Ideal if:

  • you’re new to the profession and seek all-round capability to teach both general and business English
  • you wish to start a new life and teach English abroad
  • you’d like to gain an ‘edge’ in employment, particularly if considering teaching in countries where Business English is growing in importance

 Why this course

English is the language needed to do business – to participate in meetings, negotiate and write emails. You will gain the methodology to create bespoke tailor-made lessons which will help you succeed in this growing and more lucrative area of TESOL.

Since most business people learn in a 1-1 or small group environment, this form of teaching is an attractive alternative to large classes of children or teenagers. The good news with this course is that you gain expertise in both areas and wider appeal to employers, so it is a unique option for today’s TESOL market. 

Our guided, interactive programme gives you the chance to practice the essential things you will need to do on your own as a teacher, such as create lesson plans and source materials. Many other online courses rely much more heavily on self assessment/multi choice – this one doesn’t. More personalised support means we can help you develop better teaching skills.

Since Global English is accredited by ACTDEC, employers can be sure this course has met strict, independent criteria for TESOL provision. You will have a strong foundation to give you the confidence and skills necessary to succeed in the classroom.
