TESOL Training International gave me the structure and direction to start a new profession where I could combine my love of travel with my education. When I completed the course, I left for Dubai – with a job arranged by TTI that included accommodation and a plane ticket. When I arrived, there were few surprises thanks to the information and preparation I’d been given. The TTI staff will give you the training and the techniques, then they use their years of experience and contacts to help you find the job that suits you best. All that provides a formula for success that is rare.

“I took the TESOL program at TESOL Training International and it was just fantastic! The teacher was extremely knowledgeable and experienced; well prepared and ready to give students the a ton of information and personal help and feedback. I am originally from Columbia, and plan to teach English when I return home. Now I feel confident in teaching and finding a job.”

I don’t have any previous teaching experience. The Los Angeles 5 day course moved at a good pace. I didn’t feel rushed. Overall definitely recommend to others!
