The Language HouseThe Language House is an organization that provides teacher training to facilitate teaching English abroad. With an ever increasing demand and a variety of English teaching jobs, we focus on Mediterranean countries.
We offer our TEFL/TESOL Course which meets international standards and follows The British Council criteria with over 120 hours of class time and observed teacher practice. Our fully accredited program is a recognized member of the International Association of Teachers of English as a Foreign Language (IATEFL).
We provide the unique opportunity to experience evolving from "student" to "teacher". This hands-on program is designed to engage the trainee with active participation. We maintain small class sizes to promote a more intense environment and whenever possible trainers will model teaching techniques and activities which trainees will use in the classroom.
Unlike many certificate programs, we provide the opportunity to teach both children and adults which is important when looking for work abroad.
The TESOL Certificate- Teachers of English to Students of Other Languages- provides training for those who have little or no teaching experience who wish to enter the English teaching profession.
Our course is externally moderated with all major segments graded before successful completion of the course.
The course is four weeks which entails 120 hours of classroom time. The first two weeks are mostly classroom sessions. The main components included are:
Teaching of an unknown language
In the first two weeks, our trainees are students and while moving into the second two weeks, they assume the role of teacher by participating in Observed Teacher Practice. After all, the best way to learn anything is to actually do it.
