The TEYL Certificate
course is designed for teachers who plan to teach young children (up to 10 years). The course aims at providing both recent TESOL/TEFL graduates and practicing TESOL/TEFL trained English teachers with the necessary skills, confidence and ability to effectively plan lessons for Young Learners, supplementing their existing knowledge about teaching. Course participants will gain a basic foundation from which to start a career in teaching English to young children.
The course introduces a specific method of lesson planning used for young learners taking into consideration their characteristics, classroom management, and how multiple intelligences relate to teaching children. Participants will experience and examine lessons for different age groups ranging from under 5s to 10 year-olds, as well as a range of different activities they can use in their lessons. Course participants will complete a project; planning a one-week unit plan; writing specific lesson plans for an age group of their choice; and micro-teaching (teaching their classmates role playing as children) key parts of the lessons they planned, focusing specifically on how to incorporate songs, books and video in the classroom.
This course is designed as an extension to any TESOL/ TEFL certificate course. It is suitable for native and non-native speakers of English. However, due to the demanding nature of the course, potential students are required to have a TESOL/ TEFL Certificate and demonstrate at least a high intermediate level of English in a phone interview before they are accepted.
Fees and dates for the course are here.
2 weeks. Total 40 hours. 9:00am – 1:00pm, Monday – Friday
A highly recommended option is to combine your basic TESOL course with supplemental specialty courses to take the Total TESOL Package.

Opportunity to Interact with American School Children
Rennert is very happy to offer, through a partner program Global Classroom
, a wonderful opportunity for aspiring or existing non-native speaking teachers to visit school(s) here in New York. You will meet American school children and deliver one, or a series of, cultural workshop(s) to them. This is a rare chance to share your culture with American kids while learning more about them and about education here in the U.S. This is a fun and rewarding add-on to your TESOL course; and is completely free. It can be done before or after the TESOL course.
