- WHERE WE WORK
Welcome Message from Carol Jenkins
For more than 90 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.

What We Do > Program Area
TESOL | English Teacher Training
English is increasingly vital to success in higher education and the 21st-century workplace. It is the de facto language of global business, academia, and travel. It accounts for about 85 percent of internet content and 90 percent of peer-reviewed science research journals. Simply put, English opens doors to better opportunities, new possibilities, and diverse cultures.
World Learning helps open those doors through our TESOL teacher training. We believe that when teachers are better educated and better equipped, they are better positioned to motivate and empower their students in their language learning. Our comprehensive array of programming includes intensive and customized training courses, leadership building, professional development for teachers, and educational system strengthening.
Read on to see how we incorporate the five signature elements of World Learning’s approach to change into our TESOL programming or check out our Theory of Change for an even more detailed look at what sets us apart.
