A variety of courses and services were provided including one-to-one language tuition; adult language classes; English home stays for foreign learners and weekend introductory courses in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages. Among all these courses, TESOL became the most popular one and it experienced huge demand within small time duration. The participants wanted to take this course as it would make them eligible to teach ESOL. But usually it was tough for many people to manage time for the course regularly maintaining their current profession and other engagements. SO Lynda decided to develop course materials for home study or online study which soon developed into the internationally recognized INTESOL Certificate in TEFL/TESOL. Later the course achieved accreditation and became an effective qualification for global career.
