Welcome CA Institute of Languages’ Teacher Training TEFL/TESOL 180-hour Certification Course. 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. CA Institute of Languages is an accredited member of Eaquals and you can be assured that you will receive quality teacher training.

You will see many training courses advertised for English Language Training (ELT) to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) or Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL). Therefore when you are choosing a course which aims to prepare and qualify you for teaching English (or any other language for that matter), it is in your best interest to choose a course which will offer you a high standard of training accompanied by an internationally recognized certificate. Our TEFL/TESOL certification course can be taken full time or part time and 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 B2+ of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) and a Bachelor’s degree.

Why limit yourselves to a CELTA which is suited mainly for native speakers and is limited to only providing you with the skills necessary for teaching adults? With our TEFL/TESOL course you get 180 hours of coursework and 30 hours of practicum where you learn techniques for handling a classroom with very young learners all the way up to seniors from an A1-C1 according to the CEFR.
