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.

Experiential Learning: For over 90 years, World Learning has encouraged people to learn by doing, reflecting on what they’ve done, and continuing to do even better. We weave the experiential learning cycle into all our TESOL training, encouraging participants to reflect on their own learning experiences and incorporate those reflections into their teaching.
