The one-year Teachers of English as a Second/Foreign Language Ontario College Graduate Certificate program is designed to give you a theoretical and hands-on foundation to help you develop proficiency in English as a Second/Foreign Language methodology.
This program is officially recognized by TESL Ontario and TESL Canada and is available on campus or through synchronous online delivery.
Learn effective approaches to teaching, lesson planning, curriculum design and evaluation. Take courses such as Pedagogical Grammar, Educational Technology in Second Language Teaching, and Language Learning and Culture.
Apply your theoretical knowledge to real-life teaching. Begin the program by completing an Independent Learning Project that requires you to work one-on-one with an assigned English as a Second Language (ESL) student and complete a learner profile for them. Then, gain further practical experience by taking part in two practicum placements. You even have the option to pursue an overseas teaching internship.
Upon completion of this program, you receive an official TESL certification that enables you to pursue ESL teaching opportunities in Canada and abroad.
