This program is recognized by TESL Canada. Students who successfully complete this program and have a degree may apply for TESL Canada’s Professional Standard Level One certification.

The TESL/ TESOL Certification Course includes 100 hours of intensive and comprehensive instruction in ESL methodologies, lesson planning, resources and job search skills. Student teachers also complete a 10-hour classroom observation and a 10-hour teaching practicum with ESL students from around the world who are attending our English Language Courses in Victoria. The practicum component is for eligible students only, and takes place after the 110 hours have been completed.

Within the inlingua network, we use our exclusive inlingua teaching method. The method allows students to speak English, practice the language and progress very quickly. Our materials are researched and created by our Pedagogical Department in Bern, Switzerland. Over 500,000 students learn English and other languages with us every year at inlingua campuses worldwide. The materials are constantly updated to stay abreast of developments in the teaching field worldwide.
