Web Workshops 2023

A video version of the web workshop is now being rolled out. This means busy English teachers who cannot participate in the live session can watch a video presentation of the workshop in their own time. In these, an INTESOL Japan instructor explains TESOL skills in an easy-to-understand manner to support the content of both the 150-hour and 180-hour TESOL courses.

Programme Structure

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.

Note: This is an optional component of the course.
