TEFL Columbus Ohio | TEFL USA

Named in honor of the legendary explorer Christopher Columbus, the city of Columbus is the capital and largest city in the state of Ohio. Home to one of the biggest universities in the whole country, the city has long been a center for education and therefore has all the facilities and amenities you would expect from a community with a large student population. Regularly achieving a high position in various polls and lists due to its low crime rate, thriving economy and general quality of life, Columbus is certainly a good choice of venue for a tefl/tesol training course.

Founded around 200 years ago as the purpose built state capital, Columbus has grown from an area of dense forestland into a thriving center of education, business, finance, science and increasingly tourism. This wide diversity has also meant the city has avoided much of the economic turmoil that has periodically affected many other cities throughout the country, resulting in its continued prosperity and growth. Today the city of Columbus has clearly emerged from the shadows of its arguably more famous neighbors such as Cleveland and Cincinnati to become a city that is both pleasant to live in and popular to visit.

In and around the city there are plenty of interesting things to see and do, both by day and in the evenings. There are many galleries and museums that are well worth a visit including the Columbus Museum of Art and the popular Center of Science and Industry. The city also has several parks and gardens that can provide a bit of tranquility after a busy day. Whetstone Park is well known for its stunning rose gardens, while Franklin Park Conservatory offers a wide array of gardens and other attractions. While interesting during the day, the city’s nightlife should not be overlooked. Columbus has a vibrant and varied offering of entertainment including theaters showing Broadway productions, music venues of all genres from Jazz to hip-hop, comedy clubs, nightclubs and a range of bars and restaurants.

The city’s long association with education, its clean and safe environment and a long list of attractions all ensure that Columbus remains a great choice of destination for taking a tefl/tesol training course. Our modern and comfortable facilities, hard working, highly qualified trainers and long standing commitment to every student also help to provide the best possible start to a career teaching the english language both at home and abroad.
