Teachers who go to the United Arab Emirates are highly qualified and have two or more years of teaching experience, but most of them lack experience and training in the ESL field. A professional TESOL certification that offers comprehensive training in grammar, phonology, and methodology is highly recommended.
The United Arab Emirates is a very challenging place for ESL teachers. Knowing how to create professional lesson plans using Communicative Language Teaching methods is very important for teachers who need to adapt the curriculum to a multi-level ESL class, find resources that are sensitive to the Emirati culture, use L1 (arabic) to build rapport with students, overcome grammatical interference, and teach writing skills effectively.
The 250-hour TESOL Diploma offered by Coventry House International-OnTESOL is one of the most comprehensive courses in the world. This program is perfect for teachers going to ADEC, ADVETI, or international language schools. Qualify for the most lucrative teaching jobs in the United Arab Emirates!
