Question from Anonymous
Hello. I"d like to take the TESOL course so I've been searching it and I wonder if this class has the same value as general English academy has. I do need I-20 and I have to transfer.
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi there! The certificate programs are all approved by the US Dept of Education by means of Accreditation. No, you do not need to transfer your i-20 to take the foundation class if however, you are going to take the 12 week International TESOL Program you will need to get permission from your current school to take the course or simply transfer.
