Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages

Quick Facts

The TESOL program provides a sound theoretical basis for second language learning and teaching, drawing on the most current research in linguistics, second language acquisition, and teaching methodology.

The University of Toronto Certificate Program in Teaching English as a Second Language was first offered in 1972 and is one of the finest TESOL programs in Canada.

Praise for the program has been enthusiastic and consistent. The program provides a theoretical and practical base in linguistics, language acquisition and pedagogy designed to prepare graduates to be effective instructors of English as a Second language to adult learners, either in Canada or abroad. Please select Current or Prospective students from the left-hand menu for more information.

The deadline to apply has been extended until AUGUST 12, 2014. As long as online applications are submitted by the deadline, required documents (transcripts etc.) can be submitted later in August.  Classes begin in early September.
