It is always my pleasure to sponsor student teachers from your TESOL program. All of my student teachers were well prepared and conducted themselves in a very professional way. You guys certainly do a very good job teaching them!
Alla, Sponsor teacher, 2016
I waited a year for the VCC TESOL program because I heard good things about it, and I was certainly not disappointed. I learnt a lot in the 6 weeks, and I am using what I learnt in my own teaching. The teaching staff for the course were so caring and accomplished that I felt very well taken care of during that 6 weeks. So, thank you!

I took the VCC online program several years ago when I was still a part-time university English teacher in Japan. It was very practical and I really enjoyed the courses, as well as the enthusiastic feedback and encouragement from the various instructors. I have since completed an MA in TESOL and Applied Linguistics (in which some instructors were also very good), but overall I think I learned the most from the VCC Diploma program about how to actually help students learn English.

I have a BA in English Education and a Masters of Education in Second Language Acquisition. In spite of my previous education in the field,...my study experience at VCC is amazing—so intensive and practical.

I wish everyone who attends any school (from kindergarten to University) could experience the kind of interactive teaching techniques VCC's TESOL department uses with all subjects—it is the most effective and fun way to learn!

Teaching is incredibly rewarding. My students and co-workers are fantastic. Obtaining TESOL training at VCC has been a key factor in my success. Their reputation in Vancouver's ESL industry is top notch, and their ongoing support of TESOL graduates will most definitely help you land a great job.
