1 credit and a TESOL Certificate Of Completion from YWAM's University of the Nations (except for Course Introduction)
This course leads to an internationally recognized Professional Certificate (Cert IV in TESOL) from the Australian College of Career Development
Andy and Cortnie Brooks are the TESOL Directors at YWAM Montana and have trained hundreds of teachers in the United States, Asia, and Pacific Islands
If you want to be a teacher who inspires students in your community or around the world, then this course is for you! This course is for training and certifying professional English teachers, specifically, but the skills practiced in this course transfer to all kinds of teaching, ministry, and leadership. If you are looking for a way to support yourself overseas so you can travel, then this course is for you too! Many of our graduates support themselves with paid teaching positions in schools and universities, while others have become ‘digital nomads’ teaching English online. And many other graduates use their skills as volunteers who are making a difference every day in whatever classroom or space they find themselves in.
You get to decide! There is a lot of flexibility when it comes to interacting with the course and completing assignments. This course is self-paced in many ways, and this means you can access the course platform at any time during the week that suits your needs. If you prefer to do your work in the morning with a nice cup of coffee, go for it! At night with some cozy lighting and your favorite study music? That works too!
That depends on your situation and how much time you can commit each week. This course is designed with working or part-time students in mind, and our goal is to make it accessible to students who volunteer their time elsewhere, have jobs, have families, or have other responsibilities. Students can choose to complete the course in a few weeks or several months. In order to finish the course in 12 weeks, you should anticipate at least 10-15 hours of coursework each week. Students who need to take additional time to complete the course may do so, and they can finish the course in 12 months by working an average of 3 hours per week.
There are many different kinds of online courses, but we have strived to make this particular course as engaging and interactive as possible. Together, our staff team has decades of experience with traditional face-to-face courses and online courses at the professional and university level. Whenever possible, we’ve included the same kind of interactive activities in this course that students enjoy in our more traditional face-to-face TESOL courses.
Each module consists of a wide variety of content that includes: short videos and reading assignments on each topic, interactive discussions, ungraded exercises to help you check your own understanding, and graded projects to apply what you're learning and put it into practice.
Anyone wishing to take the course must be 17 years of age and have completed year ten of secondary school. There are no other academic requirements for attending TESOL. (Students who do not yet meet these requirements can still access the course and complete the modules, but may not receive full credit until they have met the age and academic requirements.)
We have an extensive network of partner locations around the world that are in need of teachers. To learn more about these locations, explore the Partner Locations pages on our website where we’ve made it easy for you to connect with each location by email. And you can find classmates who are interested in those locations by going to the Communities pages in your Student Dashboard (available after you sign up for a course).
No. We feel that some of the best teachers are those who speak multiple languages, and if that’s you, we know that you are going to make an excellent teacher. If you can speak and write in English and be understood by others, then you should be able to do well in the course.
