TEFL Certification Paris | TEFL France

paris, france. An incredible destination for a TEFL course. What can be said about Paris that you don’t already know? Paris assaults the senses, demanding to be seen, heard, touched, tasted and smelt. From romance along the Seine to landscapes on bus-sized canvases to lounging in cafés discussing the finer points on the use of garlic, Paris is the essence of all things French.

TEFL trainees can gaze longingly at its breezy boulevards, impressive monuments, great works of art and magic lights. Savour its gourmet pastiche of cheese, chocolate, wine and seafood. Feel the wind in your face as you rollerblade through Bastille, or a soupçon of fear and pleasure at the top the Eiffel Tower.

Paris is a city to discover before, during and after your TEFL course. So see the sights, visit the museums - they're part of the experience. But then jump on the metro or a bus and get off at a place you've never heard of, wander through a quartier where French mixes with Arabic or Vietnamese, poke your head into mysterious shops, have lunch in a local restaurant, or just perch on a cafe terrace with a vin blanc and let yourself fall in love with your very own Paris.

Blessed with enchanting and beautiful landscapes, Paris is one of the most popular tourist destinations in europe. Paris has something to offer everyone and attracts people from all wakes of life irrespective of age, culture, milieu, gender, or nationality.

If your soul is seeking the right place to express its identity, your heart looking for love, then Paris may be the TEFL course location you are searching for.
