Course Outline

English is the preferred medium of instruction in many schools, so it is important for teachers to learn practical usage of the language. Doing so means being able to speak and write in English comfortably, and correctly. Our courses in  TESL and TEFL will help hone teachers’ English communication skills so that they can face the class with confidence. At the same time, the course will also help make creating curriculum designs easier and more credible.
