the teaching knowledge test (the tkt) is a test developed by cambridge esol for
teachers of english to speakers of other languages. it is designed to test candidates’
knowledge of concepts related to language and language use, and the background to

the tkt consists of seven modules: tkt module 1, tkt module 2, tkt module 3,
tkt: kal (knowledge about language), tkt: clil (content and language integrated
learning), tkt: yl (young learners) and tkt: practical. the modules can be taken
