EPIK now gives preference to applicants who complete a 20-hour Practicum on top of their TESOL online certification. OnTESOL is one of the few online TESOL institutes that provides professional teacher training in an online format and allows graduates to complete a 20-hour Practicum anywhere in the world.
Our graduates are able to complete a real 20-hour Practicum module thanks to the lesson planning skills they learn with us. Most online and weekend seminar courses consist of a short introduction to TESOL, where trainees are assessed solely via reflection essays and multiple-choice tests.
