SPECIALIZED TEFL
COURSES

ESL FOR BUSINESS, EXAMS, & ONLINE

Teaching English as a Second Language has a number of specialties that professional English teachers can choose to focus on in order to expand their teaching credentials and expertise. Maximo Nivel offers two specialized certificate programs in Teaching Business English and Teaching International Exam Preparation. Specialized TEFL Certifications help ESL teachers improve their career opportunities and earning potential. These programs are available as online add-on certifications and can usually be completed in 4-10 days.

Business English is an increasingly important part of ESL—it is one of the fastest growing and most lucrative areas of English teaching. Whereas you do not need a degree in Business to teach Business English, teachers do need to be hard working and creative, because each company and each business person has unique demands and very personalized objectives and needs for developing their business English skills.

International English exams are a very specialized area of ESL and teachers who know these exams, and the strategies for scoring high marks, are in high demand by both language schools and English learners. As an ESL teacher, you make an enormous impact helping students earn high scores on these international tests, because they are key steps to being accepted at universities in the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom, as well as many other programs around the world where English is the language of instruction. These international tests are also used for immigration purposes. Success on exams such as the TOEFL or IELTS can literally change the lives of your students!

Why I Maximo Nivel

This course has been amazing. I learned more in 4 weeks than I ever thought possible and feel like I am on my way to becoming an actual teacher now. The practical teaching experience was invaluable here and I am so thankful for the experience. Audra is pretty great too and makes even grammar week pretty fun.
