TESOL Teacher Training

Macquarie University English Language Centre offers a new TESOL program ideal for both current English teachers and trainee English teachers with an overall IELTS test result of 5.5 - 6 (Academic Module) or equivalent. This program allows teachers to participate in TESOL Methodology Workshops and also to improve their English language skills.

The Workshops can be studied online or face-to-face, or a combination of both. Teachers can complete some workshops online in their own country and then come to Australia to complete the rest of the program, and participate in classroom observations. Workshops can be studied in any order and in any combination. As part of the program, participants will observe experienced English language teachers at the English Language Centre live in the classroom or on video. Visits to local Primary and High Schools may also be included in the face-to-face program if requested.

Flexible Learning

Classroom Observations

We offer a range of exciting local activities to choose from to complement the learning experience, including guided city tours, native Australian wildlife parks and learning to play cricket or how to surf. We can arrange accommodation for participants; there are a number of accommodation options for Study Tour groups to choose from, for example on-campus or homestay.
