How to pass the Trinity CertTESOL – a step by step guide

How to pass the Trinity CertTESOL

“How to pass the Trinity CertTESOL”, is an EBC exclusive publication published to do what it says, help you pass the Trinity CertTESOL course. The publication covers all Trinity CertTESOL courses including our online Trinity CertTESOL course and our Madrid Trinity CertTESOL course.

EBC is proud to announce its first Kindle publication called “How to pass the Trinity CertTESOL”. The Trinity CertTESOL is not like white-label TEFL courses. Instead, it is a highly structured course that ensures a standard that is quality controlled and audited. In addition, the course teaches you both TESOL and TEFL skills.

The Trinity CertTESOL course is solid, structured and unique. In addition, it is one of two internationally recognised, internationally accepted and independently accredited courses that is, no questions asked, recognised and accepted by the British Council.

You may have heard that the Trinity CertTESOL course is very intense. It is very intensive, but it should not put you off from taking the course. One of the reasons the course is so rewarding is because it challenges you. Everyone performs differently on a Trinity CertTESOL, and some have to retake units. The EBC team has written “How to pass the Trinity CertTESOL” to prepare you for the course and increase your chances of success. The book contains descriptions, advice and tips to bring you success on your Trinity CertTESOL course.

“How to pass the Trinity CertTESOL” is available on Amazon. There is a Kindle version (ASIN: B09BFHZJHY) and a print version (ISBN: 9798451203613). In addition, you get free access to the book from your Kindle Unlimited subscription.

Four key points to get psyched for your Trinity CertTESOL

  1. Focus: Adjust your mindset to put your social life on hold for four weeks. We recommend you let people know that you are not available while you are taking the course. The Trinity CertTESOL course has a total study time of 200 hours over four weeks. Simple arithmetic shows that this is 50 hours a week. Spend some quality time with your friends and family before the course starts, then dedicate your time to passing the course.
  2. Grammar: Your English language awareness will need tuning up. Teaching English involves understanding and teaching grammar. You don’t have to be a grammar wiz to take the Trinity CertTESOL. However, you will teach real students verb tenses (perfect, continuous, simple etc.), noun types (countable, uncountable etc.), verb types (phrasal, auxiliary etc.), and more. We give you a lot of material about grammar before you start the course. We recommend you familiarise yourself with the key concepts.
  3. Relaxation: You will work almost non-stop during your waking hours for four weeks. It is a challenge, and you must stay relaxed. Everyone has their way of relaxation, so do whatever works to build up some inner peace.
  4. Health: If you get sick, you may have to drop out of the course. Falling ill is not something you want to do. To avoid getting sick, eat well, don’t neglect your vitamins, keep up your water intake, make sure you get 8 hours sleep and get out in the fresh air when you can. If you feel tense, stressed and overwhelmed, talk to your trainers because they are there to help you.
