Online Specialized Courses

The practice of Teaching English as a Foreign Language often branches into specialized areas focusing on teaching specific groups of learners. Worldwide demand for EFL teachers qualified in these fields is increasing and ITTT is at the forefront in preparing teachers with the necessary skills to teach English to Young Learners (TEYL) and to Teach Business English (TBE).

The benefits of becoming certified to teach business or young learners are many and you will find that holding such qualifications not only improves your teaching ability but of course your employability.
