TESOL is an 8-week seminar that trains you to teach English as a second language.
Students can join us for onsite or online training. The emphasis of the TESOL course in Milan is to teach English in a Christian context.

As teachers, it is vital that we develop godly teaching characteristics.
It is a chance to have your perspectives on teaching altered and your view of God deepened.


You will learn to use internationally approved teaching methods. The course blends class time, intercessory prayer, worship, 20 hours of practice teaching, classroom observations, community living. The course provides a great foundation in grammar, phonology and methodology as well as teaching practice with real ESL students.


This course is a YWAM run seminar and if completed successfully, you will earn a UofN certificate and 6 UofN credits. In addition to our TESOL certificate for successful completion of the seminar, it is possible to obtain an Australian accredited certificate through an Australian Registered Training Organization (RTO) by a process called Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) and Recognition of Current Competence (RCC). The advantage of this certificate is that it would be widely recognized around the world.

A word from the school leader

I am Paola, born and raised in Milan and I have studied languages. I strongly believe that teaching a language must be done with the 5 senses, not just written texts, exercises and lectures.
A lot of students ask for my help because they know grammar but can’t speak. In most cases it is not their fault but how the language is taught. Here we are going to teach you to be a 360-degree teacher.
In this course, equity in learning will be also one of the main values. We recognize that different students need different resources to achieve the same goals as their peers.

You will learn to teach English by respecting the individual’s inclination, learning styles and personality.

The instructors for this course are very prepared and they have a lot of experience.
