CertTESOL: Certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other LanguagesCertTESOL is an internationally recognised professional teaching qualification that is common in the field of teaching English as a foreign or second language. The course is designed for potential teachers with little or no classroom experience and is therefore considered an entry level qualification in English language teaching. CertTESOL courses can be taken in a variety of locations as they are individually organised and designed by different language institutes worldwide. Each of these course providers is regulated and certified by Trinity College, London. The CertTESOL certificate is seen as equal to the CELTA certificate due to the similarity in the course syllabus.

This unit offers a clear review of past tenses. As for the present tenses, the way past tenses are explained is very schematic and helped me better understand how they are formed, all the grammar rules involved and when to use them. It made clear all the differences between the tenses, both present and past. Typical students error/mistakes and teaching ideas are of a great help.This unit outlines methodologies of teaching, the structure of ESA lessons and activities a teacher can do during class for each stage. I learned a streamlined approach to each of these structures, some tools for each methodology and many ideas for activities for each stage in the ESA lessons. I learned the proper order to correction for students and great ways to give feedback.
