TESOL Course Overview
The NHC Diploma in the Theory and Methodology of TESOL is a research-based programme, designed for teachers who wish to achieve a higher, more advanced qualification level in the theory & methodology of teaching English to speakers of other languages. The NHC Diploma in TESOL helps those who are serious about language teaching and seek excellence in their field. Enhancing professional competence and career opportunities are only two of many benefits associated with higher level credentials.
Structure & Duration
The progamme has 4 modules forming the basic theoretical framework for TESOL practice. Each module contains two assignments, which must be completed and uploaded on NHC Learning Portal. While you are ultimately in command of the time you take to finish the course, we estimate that each module, including assignments, will require approximately 75 hours of study, 300 hours in total.
Since this is a distance learning course, there is no specific start date; you may start when convenient for you. As far as course duration is concerned, this is totally dependent on your individual learning pace; however, we can advise you that it takes an average of 2 months to finish the four modules, plus eight 1000 to 1500 word assignments.
