Online TESOL Certificate Training

Distance learning is an alternative option for trainee teachers and uses the Internet, post and telephone. These institutions offer a range of courses to gain a certificate before you start teaching (pre-experience). See also the section on post-experience Diplomas.

When selecting a distance-learning course, ask if the school provides live teacher sessions (either using the net or in a ‘real’ location) where you can meet to discuss topics with the teacher. Note: all School telephone/fax numbers show the full international dialling code.
