Chiang Mai University Online Tefl Course

Online TEFL Essentials Course

The Language Institute of Chiang Mai University is offering a self-administered TEFL certificate through our virtual school.  This course has been entirely authored by the experts at the Language Institute.  The content is similar to that of the 120-hour, in-house course, but the online curriculum delves deeper into the theory, philosophy, and psychology of effective language teaching.
