Welcome to TESOL Planet!
Get TEFL/TESOL qualified with ITTT and start your adventure of teaching English abroad! We have been in the teacher training industry since 1997 and offer a variety of TEFL/TESOL certification course formats, including online, in-class and combined. Our online courses range from 60 to 470 hours and we have training centers in over 45 locations worldwide for in-class TEFL/TESOL training. All of our courses come with tutor support and lifetime job support. Each graduate receives a hard-copy internationally recognized certificated after completing their course.
We offer a world-renowned TEFL/TESOL certification course that equips you for the professional task of teaching English overseas, or in your home country.
Our TEFL certification courses last for four weeks in a variety of exciting sites around the world and have a very practical emphasis. There is no need to speak any language other than English, as our courses concentrate on training you to teach English with the international standard communicative approach - where English is the only language used in the classroom.
At ITTT we are proud of our in-class TEFL certification courses and what we are able to achieve in four short weeks of training. The majority of our trainees arrive with no prior knowledge or experience of teaching English, yet by the end of the course, they leave us feeling confident in their ability to take on teaching positions in countries all over the world.
At the end of the course, trainees are asked to complete an extensive feedback form so they can evaluate their overall experience, our services and their own level of confidence in their teaching ability. In this way, we are able to continually assess ourselves and the quality of service that we provide. The comments that we receive the most include “fantastic experience”, “I feel ready to teach” and others relating to the improvement of self-confidence and self-awareness.
Comments such as these encourage our team of trainers to provide the best possible standards so we can continue to produce skilled, confident teachers who are able to use their newfound knowledge to benefit the lives of others through teaching and education. We hope you choose to join us on one of our 4-week TEFL certification courses soon.
TEFL certification courses have traditionally been offered either as 4-week, classroom-based courses or as 100% online or distance learning. We understand the benefits and drawbacks to both types of study. In order to offer greater variety and flexibility for course participants, we combined the best of both methods of study and training into one unique course. The course comprises of two elements of study: the first being online and the second being in-class study, training, and teaching at one of our training centers. The course offers the opportunity to study the theories of teaching from the comfort of your own home or office, at your own pace, from anywhere in the world, through the online component of the course and then the opportunity to put theory into practice through further training and teaching at one of our training locations.
The great advantage of this TEFL course is flexibility. The online component of the course allows you the time to absorb the theories of TEFL teaching. Attendance at one of our training centers then gives you the opportunity to put this theory into practice. The Combined TEFL course is ideal for those that do not cope well with or do not perform to their full potential in intensive study programs. The Combined TEFL course requires only one or two weeks' attendance at one of our locations rather than the traditional four weeks.
You can complete the online component of the course over a period that is suitable for you. The online component can be completed in any period from two weeks to six months - depending on how quickly, or slowly you wish, or are able to work through the course. The online component of the course comes with full online tutor support.
There are three options for combined course attendance: five, eight and ten days. The eight-day and ten-day options include at least six hours of observed teaching practice (OTP) with feedback from the teacher trainer who has watched your class. The five-day combined course does not include OTP, but you are offered the option of completing some unobserved teaching practice at a later date.
Completion of both components of the combined TEFL course results in full TEFL certification. The in-class teaching practice component is available in two-week periods at our Phuket (Thailand), Barcelona (Spain), Seoul (South Korea), Shanghai (China), Rome (Italy) and Bangkok (Thailand) training centers. It is also available in one-week periods at our centers in New York City (USA) and Paris (France) and in five-day periods at our centers in: Las Vegas, San Diego, San Francisco, Columbus, New York (#2), Orange County, Phoenix, Salt Lake City, Los Angeles and Toronto in Canada.
