European Language Centres is an approved centre for the most prestigious Trinity College London teacher training qualification: the Trinity CertTESOL.

Has anybody had any dealings with them? I am considering applying to them for the course.

Hey Raf....that's a interesting handle by the way.

Anyway did you know that Trinity college is actually a music school? Do they really have any business teaching people how to teach english? Seems random to me...probably just an easy way for them to generate some revenue.

So think about that before you go take that course...would you take an english course from a mechanic? Probably not, right? Why would you take it from a music teacher then?

Stick that in your pipe and smoke it.

Goodnight

Hello,

I need to correct what was written by Thomas. Trinity College, London is not a music school. In fact it does not teach anything. It offers "assessments in the performing and communicative arts." Its examinations cover the fields of music, drama, ESOL and TESOL. It has been long established and is respected in both the UK and abroad. However, the confusion is understandable as there is a separate Trinity College of Music in London.

I don't know the European Language Centres personally but they are located in some wonderful cities and, if their courses are accredited by Trinity, then you would have a well-regarded qualification.

Hope this helps!
