TESOL Advanced

TESL Canada LogoComplete TESOL Advanced and you can become a TESL Canada certified teacher. TESOL Advanced requires a higher level of English ability as reflected in the more challenging entrance requirements. Much of the course's curriculum overlaps with regular TESOL and the textbook is the same as TESOL Adults, but assessments are different and the practicum requirement includes more teaching hours. Challenge yourself to see if you can be an advanced student.
