TESOL Trainers - Our Tutors

Our TEFL course in Hong Kong complies with strict internationally-recognised criteria in training at this level. We are proud to offer one of the best TESOL Course in Hong Kong, helping you to start your teaching career in HK or anywhere in the world.

Individual Trainee Focus

The flexible approach brings out the best of trainees' experience and knowledge in their teaching. We respect the fact that every teacher has their own strengths to work from.

Reflective Approach

Time is given to trainees to reflect on what they are doing. After every lesson, teachers, observers and tutors gather to discuss what happened in the class and identify improvements.

Focus on Language

Many of our TEFL trainees have little to no experience with language analysis, so pre-course tasks help to upgrade your knowledge of grammar so that you can follow the course input in a clear and graded way.

Structured Assignments

The assignment load is integral to your development as a teacher. The four written assignments cover every aspect of teaching and learning that you require to start your teaching career in a well-informed way.

Unknown Language Lessons

This component requires you to become a beginner-level learner of a totally unfamiliar language. Trained and experienced teachers of Urdu, Dutch, Portuguese, Arabic and many other languages are invited to the centre to deliver real lessons to you.

Focused Teaching Practice

Each of the observed teaching practice lessons are designed to ease you into the methods and approaches that you learn. We provide a clear framework for you to work from lesson planning and preparation.
