    Course summary120-hr, in-class TESOL certification course. Teaching is a lot like surgery in that it's all about 'doing'. Do you want to let someone operate on you who has only studied how to do surgery? Or, do you want someone who has done it before? If you're sane, then the latter is your better option. We show you how to do it (teach), and then give you plenty of opportunities to show us that you know how to do it. What does this mean? In the end, you'll leave our course confident and prepared for the first day of your new job. Guaranteed!

    I truly cannot think of a better way to see the world and save money than what I did for the last two years teaching English in Thailand. Before I came out here I was basically stuck in a going nowhere fast job, getting hassled by the same day to day people, and being unappreciated by my thick, undermining boss. I was a college drop-out and didnít have much hope for a better future. Then I found California Teachers College. They believed in me, even when I didnít. I got trained and within 1 month I was making a great salary, had a respected job, and was loving the laid-back style of Thailand. No worries. No stress. This place has everything you would need back home, but at much cheaper prices. I was actually able to save $7500 in 1 year and was able to pay back my student loans. Yeah, they make you pay them back even if you dropout. Oh well, worrying about those things is long gone. Iím now married, have a home of my own, and Iíve never been happier. Thanks California Teachers College!
