General » question about length of time permitted for specialization courses
Hey Jim! I'm in the same boat as a few of the others on this thread. The online portion (including course material & exam) is still available to me.
Will I still have to pay the activation fee? If so, how much is it?

General » Kathy Ezard TESOL Course Montreal
Hi everyone,

I recently graduated from Global TESOL College in December 2014. I was taught by Kathy Ezard in Montreal, and I wanted to mention that she is an AWESOME teacher. She is very dedicated, honest, inspiring, and approachable. Once I signed up for the course, I wasn't sure to expect, but she really put me and the other students at ease. She provided me with everything I needed to teach and get a job abroad. Also, I should add that she will go the extra mile to really help you find a good job that you will be happy with. I'm on the verge of signing a contract in Thailand, and Kathy helped me with the more technical aspects.

If you're still hesitating about taking this course, I urge you to register for Kathy's class in Ottawa or Montreal. This course will bring you many opportunities!

General » Contracts from May - August 2015
Hello, I'm currently in university and I'm looking to work overseas between the period of May and August. I'm having trouble finding a contract that lasts between this time period and I would like to know if anyone can direct me to where I could find a contract that fits this condition.

Thank you

Hey there,

In January I recently passed my 240 TESOL Cert, and in 2 - 3 weeks, I have my ceremony for my Bachelors degree. I've had a few interviews for jobs in Japan and S.Korea - where I would like to go and teach - but haven't gotten anything yet.

I tried emailing the academic TESOL email address for assistance in Finding a job in S.Korea or Japan, but I never heard back. After contacting someone from the NZ branch, I was told to make a post here.

Thanks in advance for any help!
General » South America
Hello all,

I recently received my certificate and am getting ready to go to South America next year. I will most likely travel for 2-3 months before settling on a place, I'm not too picky about where.

I'm wondering if anyone has any good advice and or experiences about living, working and teaching anywhere in South America. I've heard that Ecuador is an easy place to feel at home. Two places I have been leaning towards are Colombia or Argentina. But again, I'm quite open. I'd also be interested in teaching english in places where I could also find other work such as being a UN observer or humanitarian work etc..

Any info would be much appreciated!
General » question about length of time permitted for specialization courses
Hi Diana!

Anyone who has not completed their specialization within 6 months of the start of the Foundation course needs to be re-activated and pays a re-activation fee. If the file has been non-active for over a year, then there is an additional file re-activation fee. If you took the course in Western Canada (i.e. Edmonton, Calgary, Winnipeg) then contact the Edmonton Office for assistance ( and Victor will process your re-activation and get you going into an amazing market place waiting for teachers. If you trained in Eastern Canada (i.e. Toronto, Newmarket, Ottawa, Montreal, Hamilton) then contact the Toronto Administration Office for assistance ( and Kat will process your re-activation. Please email me should you have any questions! Nest wishes, Jim

General » Kathy Ezard Montreal TESOL Course

I took the TESOL course in Montreal with Kathy Ezard in February 2015. I am moving to Tanzania for 8 months and was looking for a transferable skill. This course has given me the confidence to teach and has opened my eyes to the opportunities available.

Kathy was an inspirational teacher that made the course interesting, relevant and fun. I cannot express how wonderful she was!
