Connect with the World

Become a TEFL certified English Teacher with ConnecTEFL

We certify English language teachers so they can connect in international communities and build cross-cultural relationships.

Why ConnecTEFL?

ConnecTEFL's Teaching English as a Foreign Language certificates meet TESOL International Association’s standards for short-term, adult certification programs.

Our teacher trainers have 50+ years of combined experience, have lived and taught overseas, have advanced degrees in TESL, and teach at the university level.

Our curriculum tackles common myths about teaching the English language and deconstructs them according to the best practices and theories in TEFL.

The cost for a ConnecTEFL certificate is half the price of many certification programs of the same value which include practicum.

Testimonials

"The ConnecTEFL class was both challenging and enjoyable. The material, class dicussions, projects and practicum prepared me as I began my first classes. Additionally, the direct and useful comments offered by the instructors as they observed my class helped me continue to improve for both my students' and my benefit. ConnecTEFL is completely worth the time and the money spent. While I am not a master, ConnecTEFL helped me feel confident as I move into the arena of TEFL/ESL."
