Train to Teach English

"Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn."
Benjamin Franklin

The Trinity Certificate in TESOL courses are for people who want an internationally recognised qualification and a practical course of ELT teacher training given by a highly-qualified and experienced TESOL training team.

We run 5-week courses which can be taken online, face-to-face or blended as well as an 11-week fully online or blended course for you to obtain an accredited qualification in TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language). As a TEFL-qualified teacher you have the recognised qualification to teach English and pursue ELT jobs anywhere in the world.

At Active Language, we hope to pass on our love of teaching to our TESOL course trainees and to make this first foray into language teaching as fun and rewarding as possible.

Why choose the Trinity CertTESOL?

It is an internationally recognised and accredited qualification leading to quality teaching opportunities. 

Why choose our five-week course?

Graduate feedback shows the structure means a slightly less intense experience with more time and space to assimilate the information and, for those of you joining us in Cádiz, relax a little more.

Why choose Active Language?

Founded in 2004, Active Language is a team of experienced professionals who care deeply about your development.

Why choose Cádiz? 

Balance the intensity of the course with the uniquely relaxing atmosphere of Andalucia’s hidden gem, the real Spain.

And enhanced job prospects…

The Trinity CertTESOL is your passport to teaching success, it is highly regarded by employers worldwide and our careers service will support you throughout your journey. 

“I completed the five-week intensive Trinity CertTESOL. Intensive was definitely the word - but also fascinating, illuminating, challenging and a lot of fun.”

Laura Stuart, July 2018

“Active’s choice of a 5-week format (as opposed to the usual 4-week option) helps give trainees the time to learn in a more relaxed and thorough manner.”

Luke Peaker, January 2019 

 “Of course, the beautiful location on one of the most beautiful squares in Cadiz helps too, I can’t imagine a better place to have taken the course.”

Ciaran Kennedy, March 2019 

“The tutors and staff are fantastic and I felt welcomed and supported throughout.”

 Niall Farrell, January 2019 

“I have done various TEFL teaching roles including a year in Spain and everything I learnt with Active Language has held me in good stead - I still refer to my course notes for inspiration."

Philippa Martin, 2007
