In our workshop series, trainees are able to participate in a variety of tutor-led sessions that focus on various aspects of the 150 or 180 hour Certificate in TESOL courses. This is not only a great way to share your ideas with other students on the course, but also a great opportunity to receive expert guidance from tutors who have numerous years of TESOL experience in Japan and abroad. Sessions are 45 minutes in length and are limited to 4 trainees at any one time.
Note: This is an optional component of the course.
