Students will also learn how to develop lesson plans and deliver effective instruction.

Those who receive a certificate in TESOL will walk away with a better understanding of the world. They will have value and sensitivity for other cultures and have increased job options.

How much does a certificate in TESOL program cost? This will depend on a variety of factors including the location of the school. Each school has different costs associated with its certificate programs.

The most popular career path for those who hold a certificate in TESOL is an English language teacher. These teachers find themselves in either domestic or international environments where they specialize in helping people learn English. This involves helping their students to speak, write, listen, and read English effectively. Another career option is an ESL program coordinator. This person sets up English language programs and often creates assessments and helps teachers.
