“More and more people are learning English as a second language, whether for social, study or work-related reasons. Indeed, recent reports suggest that the number of learners will reach a peak of about 2 billion in the next 10-15 years. It’s clear, the need for teachers with high quality internationally recognised English language teaching qualifications has never been greater.” Trinity College London
Overview EDENZ TESOL College has provided a specialised programme for teacher training since 1994, in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) and Teaching English to Child Speakers of Other Languages (TECSOL). It’s an exciting time to be an English Language teacher. In fact, increasing numbers of employers around the world are looking for teachers with recognised international qualifications. Demand is high, especially in China, Korea, Vietnam and Thailand. EDENZ Colleges already has existing employer relationships with these countries. For many, training to be a teacher is a great way to put valuable work experience on their CVs, whether they want to focus on teaching alone or use it as a stepping stone towards other careers. The short nature of our courses makes it ideal to do during a gap year or while you are seeking a new job. Unlike some online TESOL courses available today, at EDENZ you will learn the latest teaching techniques and theories, and how to apply them in a classroom setting through actual teaching practice, making you highly employable. TESOL qualifications provide you with the skills to teach English in the “Communicative Method” to students whose first language is not English.
EDENZ Colleges has been a validated Centre of Trinity College, London, since 1994, offering the Trinity Certificate in TESOL, and the Diploma in TESOL. Both courses are recognised and approved by the New Zealand Qualifications Authority (NZQA). Read on to see how our TESOL qualifications are related to your professional or academic goals and how they can help you structure a personalised study pathway. Our experienced staff look forward to answering your questions and helping you at every step of your journey.

TESTIMONIALS STUDENT NAME: Grant Duncan NATIONALITY: British COURSE: Trinity Diploma in TESOL The EDENZ Collegesâ€™ DipTESOL programme is a superb course. The thoroughness and professionalism of the on-line course tutor Tony Foster is first-class. The Unit 3 Phonology component was particularly valuable and provided a great deal of in-depth methodology that was highly beneficial to my teaching. I gained a great deal throughout the duration of the course and it provided an excellent platform initially for a foray into teacher training and subsequently for my current role as Director of Studies. I canâ€™t recommend the course more highly to those wishing to further their career in the ESL industry.

Questions and Answers Is New Zealand safe?
New Zealand is one of the safest countries in the world. Like every country, there is some crime, but if students are sensible, the risks are very low. There is no religious tension in New Zealand.
How safe are the fees that I pay to EDENZ?
EDENZ is registered with New Zealand government (NZQA), and is required to hold students fees in a Trust Account, so that they can be refunded if the student does not start the course for some reason.
Is New Zealand nice to live in? The 2011 Mercer Quality of Living Survey ranked Auckland 3rd equal place in the world on its list, while The Economist’s World’s Most Livable Cities index of 2011 ranked Auckland in 9th place.
Can EDENZ arrange accommodation for me?
Yes, in fact you can stay in one of our shared apartments on the top two levels of our Airedale Street Campus. It’s a great way to save on the cost of
public transport and you’ll never be late for class! Two hostel supervisors are in residence 24/7 to maintain student safety and monitor behaviour. Accommodation residents have access to public telephones (national and international calls) and the internet (Wi-Fi and Desktop PC internet data plans are available to purchase at reception). You can also stay with a real kiwi family and practice your English outside of class. Our Homestay department carefully selects suitable Homestays for our students. Their homes are regularly inspected to ensure quality and safety, and all students are placed in single bedrooms. Other facilities such as bathrooms, TV and phone/internet (if available) are more commonly shared with the host family. Many business students go to a Homestay for their first few weeks, before finding friends to share an apartment with.
Can I keep in contact easily? The internet is widespread, and students have plenty of access for email. Many students find it simple and cheap to get a new SIM card for their GSM phone while in New Zealand, rather than having to buy a new phone.
