Introduction to ESOL 70-hour Course
Designed by qualified and experienced ESOL practitioners, this short 70-hour course focuses on the practical elements of teaching English to speakers of other languages in the UK and how to deliver relevant, functional English lessons.
Why this course?
This online course contains ESOL-specific training, materials and videos. these give you a comprehensive introduction to teaching English to second language learners. You’ll benefit from continuous assessment as you work through set tasks and receive consistent, supportive feedback from an experienced Christian tutor. You have the options of joining our online TESOL forum for ESOL, in addition to optional grammar and TESOL groups in our Facebook family.
The course looks at the needs of refugees and asylum seekers in the UK, and addresses how we can best support them as they seek to learn or improve their English.

We work alongside six mission partners, who reach out with the gospel through teaching English: Cambodia Action, ReachAcross, TeachBeyond, WEC International, People International, and Interserve. All profits from each course sale to support these organisations, or you can choose to support us through ESOL outreach, as we work with churches supporting refugees and asylum seekers in the UK.
