TOBB University of Economics and Technology has collaborated with World Learning and SIT Graduate Institute to offer the SIT TESOL Certificate Course in the Turkish capital. The SIT TESOL Certificate Course is designed by the US-based School for International Training (SIT) Graduate Institute, a renowned institution that has been preparing professionals in the field of language teacher education since 1964.
