We are located in Nashville, a thriving, multicultural community--the "Athens of the South." Home to prestigious universities such as Vanderbilt and Fisk, Nashville affords many opportunities for cultural enrichment to its citizens.

ESL Program Introduction

The mission of the ESL program at TFLI is to provide quality and affordable English education, helping students become lifelong learners and productive members of their families, workplaces, and communities. Our institute has trained hundreds of teachers worldwide through our 135-hour Teaching English as a Second Language Certification. With new theories, practices, and resources being developed worldwide on a regular basis, the field of teaching English is a very dynamic one. By combining their respective strengths in past and current teaching methodologies and years of experience, our language teachers create effective lessons and learning environments for students at any level of English proficiency. Using the best practices, our teachers create a supportive learning environment for classes. Our motto is to “adapt, not adopt.” Our ESL classes in Nashville focus on proficiency in conversation, reading, writing, and listening skills.
