PIA Press Release

Benguet SU, AILA launch TESOL course

by SC Aro

LA TRINIDAD, Benguet (29 October) -- The Benguet State University is now accredited in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages or TESOL as it has launched its international full course last week.

BSU together with the Australian International Language Academy and in partnership with the Southern Cross International Learning Institution, an internationally accredited institution, will offer TESOL course accredited by the Commonwealth of Australia after the training of its trainors.

Currently undergoing a 10-day training, representatives from the academe and private institutions in the region who underwent rigid screening will soon serve as trainors for the course.

TESOL is an internationally recognized qualification that allows one to teach English language in countries where the native language is not English.

BSU President Rogelio Colting said the partnership with AILA started two years ago which was then a member of the Queensland Language Academy now replaced by SCILI.

AILA through SCILI authorized BSU to offer TESOL and other international program not only in the Philippines but in Asia as well. However, BSU alone could not undertake training without AILA's representation according to Colting.

Colting said this has reaffirmed BSU's vision as the premiere state university in Southeast Asia.

The course normally takes around two to three months according Colting. The course provides fundamental tools for teaching English to people who speak other languages and diverse teaching methods based on dissimilar student needs and profiles.

Co-owner of AILA Keith Wright acknowledged the efforts of BSU Legal Officer Atty. Mathias Angiwan who was instrumental in bringing the TESOL program to the university which will foster partnership and unity with AILA. (PIA-Benguet) [top]
