This is a question that many new ESL teachers ask themselves and it is a very reasonable question because moving to a different country without speaking the local language creates a lot of anxiety. Learning a foreign language is an important part of the wonderful teaching English abroad experience, but it is not necessary to find a job or teach English effectively.
Yes! Now, anyone who meets the following requirements qualifies for TESL Canada certification:
-Native speaker or valid proficiency score.
-University degree from Canada or equivalent.
-TESOL certificate from a recognized TESL Canada centre.
Ontesol’s online 250-hour TESOL Diploma is recognized as TESL Canada Professional Standard 2 certification once a supervised 50-hour Practicum is completed. Take the course from the comfort of your home and then complete the Practicum at any ESL school in the world.
TESL Canada is necessary for teaching English in Canada and is highly recognized in some of the strictest countries when it comes to certification. These countries include Australia, Saudi Arabia, UAE, Vietnam, and anywhere in Europe. An EU passport is also required to teach in Europe.
TESL Canada Professional Standard 1 is equivalent to CELTA and Trinity CertTESOL, while TESL Canada Professional Standard 2 courses provide over 270 hours of advanced TESOL training.
TEYL is a specialization course that covers how to Teach English to Young Learners (TEYL) and is not enough to qualify for teaching positions worldwide. Schools look at the TESOL certificate first and foremost and if the position is for teaching English to children, as many positions are, then a TEYL certificate comes in very handy. For this reason, Ontesol offers a 50% on the TEYL course when you enrol in one of our internationally recognized online TESOL courses.

120-hour TESOL Certificate: This online TESOL course is the best of its kind. Few online TESOL/TEFL schools have experience delivering advanced courses such as Trinity CertTESOL, TESL Canada, or CELTA. Coventry House International-Ontesol offers more than 10 years of experience delivering the top TESOL courses in the world. We’ve taken the elements from our advanced Trinity CertTESOL and TESL Canada courses and compiled a standard 120-hour TESOL course that truly teaches trainees how to create professional lesson plans.
The price of an expensive on-site course is not indicative of quality. Online TESOL courses can be offered for a much lower tuition fee because the need to rent expensive downtown classrooms is eliminated. Furthermore, online education provides great economies of scale because schools have a global reach. While online courses provide a private tutor to every trainee, quality on-site TESOL courses cannot accept more than 15 students. As TESL Canada and CELTA recognize some online TESOL courses, this method of instruction is the way of the future.
The Practicum is a very important module for trainees with little or no prior teaching experience, but it comes after the TESOL course for a very good reason: You cannot stand in front of a classroom if you do not know what to do on each stage of the lesson.
During Methodology, the trainee learns about different methods for effective teaching and the structure for delivering a professional lesson. A plan is crucial as each stage of a lesson requires the use of different tools and activities depending on the type of lesson, aims, assumptions, and anticipated problems and solutions. Once you know how to create a professional lesson plan, you can stand in front of a classroom with confidence. In general, the Practicum is not required for an entry-level position, so deciding to complete the Practicum depends on your desire to obtain supervised teaching experience as well as the requirements for jobs and accreditation.
Good TESOL / TEFL / TESL courses are standard across the world. They cover grammar, phonology, and methodology. Some courses include a Practicum module, others offer the option to take it after the TESOL course, and others do not offer this module at all.
The Practicum is a separate module and is not required for OnTESOL’s 100-hour TESOL certificate or 250-hour TESOL Diploma. The Practicum, however, is necessary for applying to TESL Canada Professional Standard 2 certification (250-hour + Practicum). There isn’t a deadline for completing the Practicum after the online TESOL course, so trainees can wait until they get a job to take it free of charge at their employer’s premises. Although the Practicum is not required by many employers, it is highly recommended because the 10 hours of class observation and 10 hours of teaching experience provide confidence and feedback to new teachers.
