Our Certification


Upon successful completion of our program, participants will be awarded a TESOL/TESL certificate document that formally recognizes their studies and training in applied linguistics, English for Specific Purposes (ESP) and Second Language Acquisition Methodology (SLAM). 

Over 1000 students have been trained in these methods with many currently working in the USA, Canada, Myanmar, Mozambique, Kenya, Columbia, Guatemala, Australia, Vietnam and Mexico. 

Currently there is no globally accepted standard for TESOL/TESL certification, as there is no international governing body for regulating TESOL/TESL programs. Accreditation in one country does not guarantee recognition in another country.  TESOL Instructors who have earned their certification through private institutes in Canada are generally very well received.

Our certified teachers are widely respected and are frequently offered long-term teaching positions because they are able to demonstrate superior teaching methods and results. They also become highly sought after online instructors, because our certification program gives them the practical skills they need to start teaching right away.

The TESOL/SLAM Certification Course presented by Pure Language Institute offers a highly practical, comprehensive training program that qualifies its participants to teach English in a classroom setting or online.
