About the TKT Course

Teaching Knowledge Test / Modules 1, 2 and 3

"TKT is a series of modular teaching qualifications which test your knowledge in specific areas of English language teaching. It will help you build your confidence, and is a cost-effective way to get an internationally recognized qualification. Whether you are a new teacher or have years of experience, TKT is ideal for people who need to prove their teaching knowledge with a globally recognised certificate.” (Cambridge ESOL)

My tip

 

If you are aiming at the CELTA (Certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages), but don’t feel confident enough, I can assure you that the core modules of TKT will provide you with the kind of knowledge you will need to face it. As a plus, I intend to prepare lessons giving tips and also relating the topics to the way they are presented at the CELTA.


About Modules 1, 2 and 3

Each module refers to a different exam and, therefore, a separate certificate. They can be taken together, or separately, in any order and any number.
