a Foreign Language

Course Description:



The 120-hour Certificate in TEFL offered by the Centro Cultural Colombo Americano aims to provide the highest standard in the teaching of the English language. It is designed for those who have little or no experience teaching English as a Foreign Language, or for those who are experienced, but lack the academic background and credentials necessary to advance. The certificate aims to equip students with a strong foundation of language rules, language learning theories, teaching techniques, and materials development with strong emphasis on communicative methodologies.


The assestment of participant progress in this course will be based on group work and individual work that includes lesson planning and materials development among other activities. In addition, many readings and reflections will be assigned. Observations and completion of a research project will reflect a large percentage of the grade. If you have successfully completed all of the required assignments, have attended at least 85% of the classes, and have actively and thoughtfully participated in the program, you will exit with a certificate of Teaching English as a Foreign Language from the Centro Cultural Colombo Americano.
