What We Do
- WHERE WE WORK
Welcome Message from Carol Jenkins
For more than 85 years, World Learning has equipped individuals and institutions to address the world’s most pressing problems. We believe that, working together with our partners, we can change this world for the better.
On my travels, I’ve had the opportunity to meet with many of those who have joined us in this mission. In Baghdad, we’ve trained more than 2,300 Iraqi youth who are already giving back at home. In London, our partners in the TAAP Initiative strongly believe that we are all responsible to practice inclusion. And in Vermont, our Experiment in International Living and School for International Training participants prove every day that they have the tools and the determination to change the world.
Please join us in our pursuit of a more peaceful and just world.

The SIT TESOL Certificate is a 130-hour teacher accreditation course for those looking to teach English as a second or foreign language, either in the U.S. or abroad.
Established in 1997, the SIT TESOL Certificate is accredited by SIT Graduate Institute and accepted at Level 5 of the European Qualifications Framework. Based on the principles of experiential learning, the certificate builds on SIT’s 50-year history as a leader in the fields of TESOL and teacher education.
Designed for both new and experienced teachers, the SIT TESOL Certificate is delivered by licensed trainers at centers around the world, including the U.S., Costa Rica, Ecuador, Guatemala, Mexico, Turkey, and South Africa.
By the end of the courses, participants will be able to:
- Effectively teach learning-centered, engaging lessons, which continually build on students’ growing knowledge and skills.
- Plan effective lessons to build students’ reading, writing, speaking, and listening skills, using frameworks and key TESOL terminology.
- Analyze language in terms of its meaning, form and use, and the challenges students may have with it.
- Plan and effectively teach lessons that encourage students to develop a greater understanding of the impact of culture and an awareness of cultural aspects of language, texts, and activities.
- Reflect on how planning and teaching decisions affect students’ individual and group learning using key TESOL planning terminology.
