TESOL Teacher Education programme

The TESOL Teacher Education programme is a one-semester programme specially designed for undergraduates, M.A. level students and recent graduates interested in gaining valuable experience in teaching English to speakers of other languages (TESOL) in a cross-cultural environment.

The TESOL TE course opens in the spring semester of each academic year only. Students who successfully complete the course of study earn the Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults (CELTA) – an internationally-recognised qualification in the field of teaching English.

CELTA Certificate

The Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults is a training course provided by the Masaryk University CELTA Centre CZ025 certified by the University of Cambridge to train teachers of English to speakers of other languages. CELTA is an internationally recognised certification in the field of teaching English and is designed for present and future teachers of English who wish to gain an internationally-acclaimed teaching certificate.

The CELTA course at Masaryk University is specific in being spread over a fifteen-week period, which is directly linked with semesters at MU, offering its participants the unique experience of teaching both native English-speakers and Czech students at the same time.

CELTA at MU offers training in a communicative teaching approach, which can be easily adapted to different age groups and cultures, and hence is widely recognised by employers around the world. What is more, MU does not require previous teaching experience or Czech language skills in order to take the course.
