TESOL Community and Events

You will join a global community. TESOL is both practical field and one with academic research. There are many directions you can follow.



Introduction of the Diploma in TESOL (Asia Specialisation), Certificate in English Pronunciation, Certificate in Teaching IELTS and the Introduction to TESOL Certificate.

We attended the four-day 52nd Annual International IATEFL Conference and Exhibition, held in April in Brighton, SE England.


The Certificate in Teaching Observation introduced for distance learners, using video support. Our partner school in Singapore, British Education Centre, tops all other LTTC approved schools in Singapore and SE Asia for numbers of graduating students on LTTC courses.

Nearby Glasgow was the venue for the 51st Annual International IATEFL Conference and Exhibition in April 2017. With other delegates from around the world, we enjoyed presentations by speakers over four days. Everything from ‘Are you a 21st century Teacher?’, through ‘Self-publishing ELT materials’, to ‘The native speaker fallacy, Canadian and Emirati higher education perspectives’ – just three examples from hundreds of interesting presentations which combined with pop-up sessions, poster sessions, the exhibition and evening hospitality.

Enrolments open in the UK.
The Advanced Certificate in Teaching IELTS (Asia) introduced, both by online and classroom delivery. The London Teacher Training College Diploma in TESOL delivery commences by online learning.


We moved from our first home in Singapore to Scotland, to build on our years of experience training TESOL teachers in Asia. We became an institutional member of SATEFL, the Scottish Association of Teaching English as a Foreign Language.


The contestants on ‘Say the Word’, a pronunciation game show launched on Channel 5 Singapore television for
Mediacorp in November, were judged by British Education Centre, our partner school in Singapore. Filming took place in August and there was sometimes a fine dividing line between ‘Correct!’ and ‘Incorrect!’ for what was aimed at General British English pronunciation of words. Eight episodes had themes ranging through Business, Medicine, Sport, Fashion, Education, Food and others; contestants were in panels of four; four bloggers, four teachers, four pageant winners, four fitness trainers, four airline cabin attendants…..
