Specialized Courses

In recent years many employers in Korea have been looking for teachers with more specialist teaching skills in addition to standard TEFL/TESOL certificate training. We have realized that a lot of our teachers wish to specialize in teaching different types of students and get paid more to do so. As a result TEIK has developed additional online courses that target teachers wishing to teach English either to younger learners or business people.

Both the CTBE & CTEYL courses are available in 20/40/50 Hour courses ($129/$139/$149) that you can complete online at your own pace and both result in specialist certification which will make you more marketable and will earn you more money and will pay for themselves in a few hours of private classes. We offer these courses as a standalone certificate and also are a great addition to TEFL certified teachers looking to stand out in the super competitive job market in Korea.  Most other TEFL companies charge $250 for a 40 or 50 Hour specialist course, which is almost 40% more expensive than our certified courses.
