Students of the English language have a lot to contend with. Not only must they learn a grammar system with influences from Latin to Old Norse, but also an ever-expanding vocabulary that includes, according to the second edition of The Oxford English Dictionary, more than 600,000 words. To help students navigate this endless tide of language, TESOLS.com has constructed a standardized online course for those seeking TESOL certification, giving students around the world increased access to the learning tool they need most: well-trained English teachers.
TESOLS.com’s courses are divided into six modules, which teach aspiring educators effective ways of presenting the English language’s lexicon, grammatical nuances, and 13 different words for pizza. They also give future teachers an understanding of classroom dynamics and student interaction.
