What is a TEFL / TESL certificate?

A Teaching English as a Foreign / Second Language  certificate is an internationally recognized qualification that enables people/English teachers to Teach English as a Foreign or Second Language.


What qualifications do I need to do the TEFL course in Mexico?

  • While the TEFL course in Mexico is essentially practical, some evidence of study at a higher education level is necessary in order to cope with the academic side of the course. In some cases, work experience may be accepted in place of qualifications.
  • Have a positive attitude towards teamwork and experiential learning activities. This includes acknowledging the relevance of these in Teaching English as a Foreign Language and willingness to actively participate in the course.


Do I need to speak British English or North American English?

We regard English as a global language and therefore welcome applicants from all native speaking countries, as well as non-native speakers with a proficient level of English. There is no preferential treatment for, or discrimination against trainees because of origin, accent or pronounciation.                                           


Do I need knowledge of other languages?                

No. We use the universally accepted communicative approach to teaching, where English is the only language used in the classroom.


Is there an age limit?

You must be at least 18 years of age for your application to be considered. There is no official upper age limit. Some employers may have a preference for younger English teachers whilst others tend to prefer more ‘mature’ teachers. The majority of our trainees are in their 20’s, 30’s and 40’s, but we have successfully trained and found employment for graduates in their 50’s and 60’s and therefore welcome applications from all interested parties regardless of age, gender or religion.                                                       


Will I be a competent English teacher by the end of the TEFL course in Mexico? 

Due to the high practical content of the course, all graduates should have the necessary skills, confidence and ability to embark on their teaching careers and work in a professional manner anywhere in the world. All certificate courses for English teachers, however, serve as initial teacher training and those interested in pursuing teaching as a career often go on to take a diploma or MA after 2 years of teaching experience (minimum 2 yrs. for a diploma). 


Does the TEFL course in Mexico meet international guidelines?

Yes. Whilst there is no true international body for courses, internationally accepted guidelines state that the course must have 100 hours of input, 6 hours of teaching practice and is externally monitored. The TEFL course in Mexico has, in fact, 140 hours of input and a minimum of 10 hours teaching practice as well as being externally monitored.            


When is the best time to do the TEFL course in Mexico?  

There really is no best or worst time. Countries in different hemispheres have different academic years and tend to hire year round anyway, on and as needed basis.                                                        


What are the chances of finding a job after completing the course?

Excellent. At present, there is a shortage of certificate qualified English teachers in Mexico, Central / South America and worldwide. Consequently, the majority of our trainees will have found employment by the time they have completed the course. The only exceptions tend to be graduates who wish to work in a relatively difficult location (due to demand, timing or regulations). The demand for teachers is so high in many countries, that we are able to offer guaranteed employment on successful completion of the course.                                                


Is job placement assistance included?   

Yes. All graduates receive individual counseling and assistance with finding a teaching job. We have contacts with many schools worldwide and can often place graduates within its own network of language schools.will help with all aspects of job seeking from CV/resume construction and interview techniques to arranging job interviews.        


Is your paid job placement program really guaranteed?                     

Yes. We guarantee paid job placement in Mexico and provide direct employment contacts worldwide. Both our paid job placement and job guidance programs are lifetime services offered to trainees and graduates. When our students need our guaranteed job placement program, we ask them to provide us with 5 metropolitan areas or countries where they would like to be employed. Although our guarantee is within Mexico, our efforts are the same for those desiring to start their career in other countries. During the course, students will also receive personalized tutoring to know where, when and how to search for jobs; our trainees will discover how to assess which jobs offer the best benefits. Finally, our students are given tools to learn how to successfully apply to these positions.
