The School

During our years of operating a TEFL training course in Beijing, we have helped countless trainees become confident and effective teachers. We have also built and maintained wonderful working relationships with local schools and language centers. It is because of this proven success that we are able to guarantee job placement for our trainees after the course.

With the help of our experienced training staff, you will deliver lessons to real EFL students who do not speak English as their native language. Students are enthusiastic and come to class voluntarily, so you will have a friendly and supportive environment in which to learn the skills needed to become an effective teacher.

The center has spacious classrooms and every resource you need to successfully complete the course is provided. Computers are available for lesson planning and we work very hard to ensure you are able to benefit from a comfortable learning environment.

Our TEFL training center is surrounded by plenty of facilities such as bars, restaurants and shops, and is only a 30-minute taxi ride away from the famous Sanlitun area, where both foreigners and locals gather to unwind after a hard day of work or study.

We also offer professionally run, affordable Mandarin language classes that can be set up individually or in a small-class format.

You will also receive the aid of your course trainer throughout lesson planning and receive immediate feedback on your lesson after it’s been delivered. Practicum is assessed and a satisfactory assessment is required to earn your TEFL/TESOL certificate.

  • Is there a dress code?

    Expand thin line on white background

    For all input and tutorial sessions at the training location, there is only one specific dress requirement: Both men and women should have a shirt covering their shoulders. The course operates from within a school so we ask you to be mindful of this, as well as being mindful of your peers and to respect the fact that you are a visitor in another country.

    During teaching practice there are specific requirements that adhere to the local dress code. All trainees are expected to dress professionally according to the following guidelines:

    Women: Shoulders should be covered, blouses with sleeves are suggested. No low-cut necklines, very short skirts or bare midriffs. Open-toed shoes are acceptable, but not hiking or flip-flop sandals.

    Men: Long pants, slacks or trousers are required, jeans are not acceptable. Short or long-sleeved shirts with a collar are necessary, although a tie is not required. Loafers or dress shoes are both fine, sandals are not acceptable. Long hair should always be tied back.

  • What should I bring for course studies?
