Become a TESOL teacher | Take the right TESOL courses.

Online TESOL Certification

Starting from Taichung, we are providing top-notch TESOL courses for two main pursuits. First, we aim to regulate the teaching quality discrepancies among teachers to enhance ESL education in Taiwan and Asia. Second, we aim to equip talents with global mobility with the knowledge and skills to travel and work anywhere as a teacher.

Internationally Accredited & Certified Trainers

We partner with the International TEFL Training Institute (iTTi) from the United States to offer a 120-hour online TESOL certification course in Taiwan. Our instructors have extensive international teaching experience to ensure valuable learning. Unlike other centers prioritizing profit over quality, we focus on top-notch training, evaluation, and support, providing you with a standout certificate.

Project Background

Having gained expertise in ESL education in Taiwan for decades, we have noticed…

1. Inconsistent quality of TESOL certificates:

Some training centers prioritize selling certification courses over assessing students’ English skills, leading to a surplus of certified individuals lacking international teaching abilities.

2. Mixed qualifications among TESOL instructors:

Many training centers have both qualified and unqualified instructors. For TESOL to be a credible international certification, instructors need not only knowledge and skills but also actual experience teaching students of diverse cultural backgrounds.

3. Certification is unable to realize its employment potential: 

Due to the abundance of certificate holders and the varying qualifications of instructors, many certificate holders have simply purchased their certification without the necessary teaching abilities, leaving them disadvantaged in the international job market for teachers.

4. English teaching standards in Taiwan need improvement:

In most cram schools, the focus on exam-oriented teaching and teacher-centered instruction means that even certified English instructors are not effectively teaching the language. Despite the abundance of English instructors, students still struggle to fluently use English.

Her focus on reinventing ESL classrooms in Taiwan has led to an exceptional quality in TESOL courses provided in Taiwan.
