Q:

Your programs are not accredited by TESL Canada and they don't contain a practicum which must employers are looking for. Can you let me know where your graduates are working? When I look at job ads most insist on an accredited certificate with a practicum, and at least an undergraduate degree.

A:

Thank you for your query. TESOLS is not a school in the traditional sense; as is noted on our website our business is mainly providing online curriculum for existing brick and mortar schools. That being said, where we saw the need for TESOL we acted, first in developing the materials, posting them on our incredibly stable Course Management System, and delivering the course to teachers at home and all around the world. In the year that we have been offering TESOL we have been unable to seek recognition in Canada just yet list but we are Institutional members of IATEFL (http://www.iatefl.org/ Membership# 23323) and are on the list of applicant members for accreditation at ACTDEC (http://www.actdec.org.uk/members.shtml). Though we cannot guarantee every employer would accept this, (some might be looking for one focus more than another-they might be looking for country/culture specific training or work experience for instance) we are certain the curriculum follows a standard that would generally be accepted by employers worldwide; any in class experience will suffice. You should be fine where ever you go. I hope this addresses your concerns.

Q:

As per the previous question how does one know if they meet the english proficiency? Also, is there any practicum? And if so where?

Earl M.  asked on  Jan 31, 2013

A:

Based on your phrasing of the question you have just posted I can tell you meet the level of English proficiency needed. You can start the course whenever you want but you have 12 months from the date of activation to complete it. The course is 100% online (no need to leave the comfort of your home) and entirely self-directed meaning it is to be done at you own pace and on your own time.
