What Students Say

The Selkirk TESOL Program was an amazing experience, and I cannot imagine going to teach without having such a great platform to start from. Not only did I gain so much knowledge from all our wonderful instructors, but sharing our experiences and perspectives with the other TESOL students added immensely to this program. I cannot wait to apply what I have learned in my future opportunities!

Ryan Sesto, TESOL Alumni 2017
The TESOL program was an incredibly comprehensive and rewarding experience. I could not recommend it enough for anyone who would like to enter the teaching profession or spend a few years working outside of Canada. I am so happy to have been a part of this program.

TESOL student Marie's Testimonial
I thoroughly enjoyed the TESOL course at Selkirk College. It was much more than I expected, covering everything from philosophy of teaching and building curriculum, to basic grammar refreshers that I needed more than I would have believed!
