What Is CTESS?

The CTESS course is a comprehensive English teacher training program that is based on the needs of Spanish-speaking students. It is designed for those who are new to teaching English as well as those who are already teaching but who want to gain a more well-rounded understanding of teaching in a Spanish-speaking environment. With CTESS, you will learn the skills and knowledge you need to become a good English teacher as well as live, work and be successful in any Spanish-speaking country.

First, you will build a solid foundation that will allow you to effectively teach English as a Foreign Language to students at every proficiency level and stage of life. You will learn about the cultural and linguistic influences that make Spanish-speaking students both a joy and a challenge to teach. Finally, we will guide you through the process of finding, applying for and interviewing for the teaching jobs you want, as well as the process of moving to and becoming truly comfortable in the location you choose.

What Is STESS?

The STESS course was designed for experienced English teachers who want to start working with Spanish speakers or move to a Spanish-speaking country and hit the ground running. It is a shorter, more targeted version of our flagship program and assumes that you already have the teaching basics down, but want to live, work and have a more fulfilling life in a Spanish-speaking country.
