TESOL Certification Program
Get TESOL certified abroad and learn all the necessary skills to be a successful teacher and world traveler.
One of the many advantages of getting TESOL certified with Help! in a traditional Mexican town is that it provides you with the practical experience necessary to see what it is really like to teach in a foreign country and make a smooth transition from student to teacher.
Help!’s TESOL Internship is designed specifically for university students or recent graduates who want to add an incredible cultural experience and an internationally recognized teaching certification to their resumes. Help!’s TESOL Certification Program is actually much cheaper than a semester of school at most universitites – which can cost at least $6,000 USD (tuition, books, room and board, fees). With Heslington, you have the opportunity to invest one semester in gaining both an international TESOL credential and accrue hundreds of hours of teaching experience in a foreign country.
