The ELS TEFL Certification Program Has Begun!

May 1, 2015

ELS is pleased to announce that the new ELS TEFL Certification program has begun!


The ELS TEFL Certification program is a thorough and up-to-date 4-week TEFL program that includes an assessed practical teaching component. The course is delivered through a combination of workshops, seminars and demonstrations designed to give students an active role as an ESL or EFL teacher in training.

The program’s first session took place from February – March 2015 at ELS/St. Petersburg, and the program’s effectiveness is already apparent: just one month after the end of the course, one ELS TEFL Certification graduate from the first session is already on her way to a new teaching position in South Korea!

The next ELS TEFL Certification session at ELS/St. Petersburg will begin on May 4, 2015. The first session at ELS/Boston – Downtown will start on May 25, 2015. Housing is available at both locations for these upcoming sessions.

Other 2015 TEFL Certification start dates include:

  • ELS/St. Petersburg: June 29, August 24 and October 19
  • ELS/Boston – Downtown: July 20, September 14 and November 9
