Seville is the capital and largest city of the region of Andalusia, in the South of spain. It is quite possibly one of europe's most beautiful and exuberant cities, and has captivated visitors for centuries with its rich history and folkloric tradition that continues to permeate daily Sevillano life.
Legend has it that Seville was founded by the famous Hercules, and this city also gave life to the legendary figure of Don Juan, offered a nearby port from which columbus sailed to discover the New World, and produced such notable characters as Carmen and Figaro.
Seville's biggest holiday, Holy Week (La Semana Santa), is during the March/April course, as is Seville's week long party, the Feria. From April 30 to May 4, everyone in Seville spends as much time as possible at the fairgrounds, dancing, eating and drinking with friends. People go directly after work and often stay until it's time to go back to work in the morning. This is another famous event which attracts tourists and would add to our trainees’ experience of Seville while on the course.
Rich in the traditions of flamenco, bullfighting, colorful fiestas, and typical Andalusian cuisine, one can literally soak in the Spanish culture while visiting Seville. The Sevillano people take tremendous pride in their history and traditions of the past, and keep such traditions alive through a very lively, socially-active and festive culture.
The captivating city center is a maze of narrow cobblestone streets leading into quaint plazas, lively tapas bars and bodegas, and fantastic architectural monuments demonstrating the heavy Moorish influence of the past. The enchanting river Guadalquivir runs through the city and provides an excellent spot for evening ""paseos"", river-front dining and exciting nightlife.
Just south of the city center lies Parque Maria Luisa, a beautiful park which houses the breathtaking Plaza de Espana, important museums and various other architectural delights, mostly built for the Ibero-American Exposition World Fair in 1929. Strolling through this park on foot or enjoying a ride in a horse-drawn carriage is a wonderful way to spend a sunny afternoon.
The next major event in Seville, World Expo 1992, allowed for many improvements to the city. No fewer than 70 kilometers of new streets were built, and the high-speed AVE train was constructed to connect Seville with Madrid in less than three hours.
Seville is well-located for exploring the southern region. Within a comfortable day trip you will find beautiful beaches, charming mountain pueblos, wonderful national parks and forests, and stunning historical sights including the world-famous Alhambra! The beaches of Portugal can be easily reached within four hours by bus, and the vibrant Costa del Sol is just three hours by train.
Seville is undoubtedly a city of breathtaking beauty, vibrant ambience and the most festive and lively of cultures. So whatever your purpose, just being out and about on a warm night in Seville will be a truly exciting and unforgettable experience!Apply now & get certified to teach english abroad!

Seville part-time program
We offer this option to those who are unable to take the full-time four-week program due to work, family situations or other commitments. If an applicant decides that they need to take the part-time program they must commit to and attend week 1 of the four-week program as this is when the entire course introduction is given. Once week 1 is completed the trainee sits down with the director and goes over his or her availability and a tailor-made schedule is created that fits in with the trainee’s availability in conjunction with the ongoing schedule of the full-time courses. The part-time course usually takes around two months to complete depending on what the trainee can commit to.
A common part-time schedule cannot be set as it will depend on the trainee’s availability. They will need to do some mornings and evenings and each individual case will look different.
An example of this could be as follows:
A student is unavailable Monday and Tuesday evenings as well as Wednesday and Thursday mornings.
They would need to make the necessary arrangements to attend the first full week of the full-time program. The director would then draft up a schedule for the following two months where the trainee would attend all of the pre-requisite classes either in the morning or afternoons. They would also do all of their afternoon teaching practices on Wednesdays and Thursdays.
Once all the requirements of a regular full-time course are successfully fulfilled, they would attend the graduation ceremony of the second full-time course and receive their certificate.
Regarding accommodation, trainees can stay in the lodgings provided during the part-time program, but the minimum stay is four weeks. The price is 16€/night in an individual room. The course balance is the same for full- and part-time students and both amounts are due no later than the first day of the program.
The TEFL course accommodation in Seville is in apartments with three or four bedrooms. The flats are comfortable and simply furnished.
