Welcome to Berlitz Teacher Training TEFL/TESOL 240-lesssons (45 minutes each) Certification Course. This course is also available online through a series of 12 workshops. Our mission is to provide you with the highest quality of teacher training possible. This philosophy is rooted in the belief that flexible schedules, affordable instruction from the best instructors, and excellent staff support from registration to certification is what leads to every students’ success.

Berlitz is an accredited institute and you can be assured that you will receive quality teacher training. With our TEFL/TESOL course you get 200 lessons of coursework (face-to-face and self-study) and 40 lessons of practicum where you learn techniques and gain the confidence to handle classrooms of very young learners all the way up to third agers, from A1 to C1 CEFR levels.

Our TEFL/TESOL certification course is designed for candidates with little or no previous English language teaching experience. It is also taken by candidates with some teaching experience who have received little practical teacher training and by those who want to stay up to date with trends in the world of language teaching.

Our candidates must have English language skills equivalent to at least a B1 of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR). If you do not have valid proof of your level of English, you can take an internationally recognized exam at Berlitz. The teacher training course also includes English courses for further development. Although we also suggest having a Bachelor’s degree, it is not completely necessary.
