Phonology: The Trinity Dip TESOL has an emphasis on phonology, including using the phonetic chart, features of connected speech, vowels, consonants and stress.

World class teachers and tutors: Our team of tutors, including Lindsay Clandfield, are experts in the field of Teaching English as a Foreign Language and give you all the support you need to complete the Diploma in TESOL successfully.

Highly Practical:  The Trinity Dip. TESOL will transform your teaching and open doors into other areas of the ELT profession. Our graduates have gone on to become Directors of Studies, course book writers, teacher trainers and even opening their own schools.

On successful completion of a diploma course, graduates can expect to have more professional doors opened for them. Many of our graduates have gone on to become teacher trainers, Directors of Studies, managers at ELT publishers and course book writers.

The online Trinity Diploma gave me the flexibility I needed to work and study. I was able to focus on YL’s which made the course particularly appealing to me. The tutors were supportive in helping me recognise my strengths and develop new approaches to teaching.
