Welcome to Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL)

Certificate Program

This program is certified (accredited) by TESL Ontario

As the world becomes increasingly internationalized, the need for facility in English is growing. One result of this growth is an increase in the demand for qualified ESL/EFL (English as a Second Language/ English as a Foreign Language) teachers. The demand is apparent both overseas and here in Canada. Job postings now frequently specify that applicants must have a TESL or TESOL Certificate from a certified (accredited) institution.

In response to this demand for accredited English language teachers, the Department of Languages, Literatures, and Linguistics at York University, Keele Campus, offers a Certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL).
