Where to take a TEFL course?

Once you have decided on attending an in-class course the next decision to make is which location is best for you. To ensure you have the widest choice possible, we have plenty of locations to consider.

Where to take a TEFL course in the Americas?

If you would like to complete your TEFL certification in North America we have many options across the US, as well as centers in Canada and Mexico. You might also want to consider South and Central America where we operate training centers in a range of exotic locations, including Argentina, Brazil, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Guatemala and Peru.

Where to take a TEFL course in Asia?

If you want to take advantage of the countless job opportunities in China, we have four great locations to pick from. Other popular options are Cambodia, Japan, Thailand, the Philippines, and Vietnam. Hong Kong, Indonesia, Nepal, and Singapore are also available.

Where to take a TEFL course in Europe?

If your dream is to teach in Europe you are in luck as we provide training center locations to suit most preferences. You can choose a destination in Western Europe, such as France, Ireland, Spain, or the UK, or somewhere further south or east, such as the Czech Republic, Germany, Greece or Italy.

Where else to take a TEFL course?

Outside of the above regions, we have a few other choices for you to consider. In North Africa we have a center in Alexandria, Egypt, while in the south of the continent we run a course in Cape Town, South Africa. To complete our worldwide portfolio of training centers, we offer a course in Sydney, Australia.

Things to consider when choosing a TEFL course location?

If you already know where you would like to work, it makes perfect sense to take your certification course in the same location. During the month of your course you are likely to meet many local contacts who can help you find the right job once you have graduated. Our teacher trainers at each location also have extensive local knowledge and are able to help you out with job leads and preparations for the interview process. Of course, it is not possible to provide our TEFL certification course in every city in every country worldwide. If we don't have a center in the exact location of your choice, it is highly likely that there is one within the same region. Regardless of the location you choose, you will receive the same high standard of training and our extensive job support program should help you find the right job wherever you want to live and work.

Financial points to consider when choosing a TEFL course location?

Another important factor to consider is overall cost. For obvious reasons, the course fee for our in-class TEFL certification varies depending on the location. The economic realities of putting on the course in cities such as New York and Tokyo mean the course fee is inevitably higher than in cities with a lower cost of living, such as Chiapas in Mexico or Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam. As well as the course fee, you should also consider the cost of accommodation. Although we endeavor to provide the best value for money accommodation possible, a one month stay in Rome is likely to cost more than the equivalent stay in Chiang Mai, Thailand.
