Who is TESOL for?
TESOL is not only for native speakers. Many trainees are speakers of other languages with a high level of proficiency in English. All participants must have a good command of the English language.
This is an entry level course, designed for anyone who would like to teach English and has little to no experience teaching. TESOL is recognized throughout the world by companies and organisations that employ English language teachers. Candidates come from all walks of life. Whether a younger university graduate or a professional looking for a change of career, TESOL allows successful graduates the opportunity to teach English as a foreign language in any country, short or long term. Candidates should be at least 18 years old.
Course hours and workload
The course is very intensive. It runs over fours weeks, from Monday to Friday. Teaching practice takes place in the late afternoon, followed by a feedback session.
You can expect to be in the training center from 9:00 until 15:00 on most days, until 17:30 when there is teaching practice and, on a few occasions, until 19:30 for classroom observation of experienced teachers.
You will receive a list of recommended accommodations upon registration.
Lingua Leipzig will provide any participant with job seeking assistance. However, we can’t guarantee that you’ll find a job right after the completion of the course. We will help you look for and choose the right offers and will give you advice on how to present yourself correctly in order to get your dream job. All of our experienced teachers will support you throughout your stay.
Health and travel insurance
It is the responsibility of each trainee to insure that they have adequate insurance to cover the duration of their stay in Germany before leaving their country of residence.
