TEFL / TESOL COURSE OVERVIEW
Please note: The New York City TEFL Course will be held online until further notice.
Offered in one of the top language learning centers in New York City, this internationally recognized TEFL/TESOL certification course provides 160 hours of training, including live practice teaching, and provides one of the most prestigious and recognized certifications for teaching English as a foreign language.
All students will be required to engage in at least six hours of live practice teaching with actual ESL students from the local community, providing the hands-on experience that is required to become a professional level English instructor. All practice teaching is closely monitored and observed by instructors, who provide extensive feedback and attention to the student not only during practice teaching sessions, but throughout the entire course.
While most International TEFL Academy graduates earn their TEFL certification for the purpose of teaching English abroad, professional-level opportunities for teaching English are available in the New York City metropolitan areas to those who earn an accredited TEFL/TESOL certification, including the SIT TEFL TESOL certification offered in New York.
As the largest city in the U.S. and home to one of the largest immigrant populations of any city in the world, including more than 2 million non-native English speakers, the New York metropolitan area boasts huge demand for English language instruction.
