Advanced TESOL: Comprehensive TESOL courses that carry an international TESOL accreditation such as TESL Canada, Trinity CertTESOL, or CELTA. 120+ hours of advanced TESOL training covers topics in a very comprehensive manner and assignments are more difficult. A Practicum takes place at the end of the course. If on-site, the Pracitcum is generally included and happens right after the TESOL course. If the course is online, the Practicum is a separate module and the starting date is more flexible. Tuition fee $1,000+
Those who take an advanced course are usually experienced teachers who want to upgrade their qualifications. New teachers can take an advanced TESOL course and get the best training from the very beginning.
