The course is designed for both native and non-native speakers of English with little or no teaching experience, and is 100% online and 100% practical introduction to the theory and methodology of teaching the English language. You will gain experience by observing LSI’s online classes around the world, observing other trainees and also, of course, teaching online yourself for the 6 hours of teaching practice included in the course.

Part of the programme is also comprehensive advice on how to find employment as a teacher once you have qualified.
