TEFL/TESOL Certification Japan Course Outline

The Canadian College of Linguistics TEFL/TESOL Course is based on the small-group tutorial system.  This system keeps class sizes small and interactive, which means you get more individual attention and teaching from your instructor, tailored to your learning needs.

Our system also includes 3 real world practicums, which are in-class presentations designed to give you opportunities to put your newly acquired teaching skills into practice.

Most importantly, you get the chance to observe and teach real ESL classes, which include international students from all over the world.  This is what makes The Canadian College of Linguistics’ graduates some of the most well-prepared ESL teachers.

TEFL/TESOL Certification Japan Course Instructors

Our Japan TEFL/TESOL course instructors are highly qualified native English teachers from Canada who have extensive experience with learning and teaching languages. They are skilled in the ESL and the TEFL TESOL fields, and also have expertise in related fields as well.  Throughout their careers they have taught teachers and students from Canada, America, Japan, Korea, China, the Philippines, Vietnam, Taiwan, Russia, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Kazakhstan, Armenia, India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Bosnia, Serbia, Croatia, Belgium, the Netherlands, Italy, France, Burundi, South Africa, Nigeria, Mexico, Columbia, Brazil and more.

As a result, our instructors are able to pass their experiences on to our TEFL TESOL course students.  Our instructors thoroughly prepare students for not only the theoretical and academic aspects of teaching English as a second language, but for teaching English in the real world as well.  They can provide invaluable insights about English accents, classroom behaviour,  different nationalities, travel, and the benefits and pitfalls of teaching.  Their real life stories about teaching English abroad are sometimes funny, sometimes interesting, but most of all, they are something that no course textbook could ever teach.
