If you have the desire to teach English to speakers of other languages, enhance your career with Global TESOL Certificate program
The Global TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) Certificate is a training program designed for individuals who want to teach English in a non-public school setting within or outside of the United States. Unlike basic TESOL courses available online, this is an in-depth program that includes observing TESOL classrooms and practicing with other students.
The course modules in this classroom program will give you a solid theoretical foundation for teaching English, as well as hands-on classroom experience and job-searching skills. You will learn about intercultural communication, linguistics, and curriculum and lesson plan development. Successful completion of the program will prepare you to work as a teacher, trainer, tutor or cross-cultural communicator both at home and abroad.
Many au pairs have used the TESOL certificate to enhance their future careers or to begin a career once returning home.

Kennesaw College has a classroom format that is taught on 16 Saturdays from 9am to 4pm
This is what au pair Danni has said about her experience earning her TESOL Certificate:
“I have been taking the TESOL course from the UGA university since last November and it has been wonderful for me. I think the program encourages students to think about practical application of learning not just about understanding of course materials by doing case studies or analysis on target subjects. Throughout the program the assignments involve both individual and group study so that it prepares the students not only work alone but also work together. I also appreciate the fact that the program teaches technical aspects of teaching English as a second language but also ethical aspects which cannot be ignored. The program is well organized with all requirements made clear from the start and it is evident that a great deal of thought and energy are put into the instruction of each course. I really recommend this course to all girls that wish to have more knowledge in the teaching field.
Besides, the professors within the TESOL program are extremely knowledgeable professionals within the field who offer students a well-rounded education through their various areas of interest. Currently, I am taking my last module on Saturdays and I have found the TESOL course to be both informative and fun. This course gives you all the tools needed to become an effective teacher plus you’ll have a lot of fun at the same time.”
