St. Paul’s Cathedral is as spectacular now as it was 300 years ago and Westminster hasn’t lost any of its luster. You really must come and see it for yourself—words alone will never do London justice.
The River Thames flows through the city just as it did during the time of Londinium and its Roman settlements. Big Ben, the Tower of London, Buckingham Palace, Hyde Park and more all await anyone who takes our certificate course in this magnificent, majestic city.
London also boasts the entertainment district of the West End as well as shopping districts such as Oxford Street, Leicester Square, Covent Garden and Piccadilly Circus.

Students who pass our TEFL course in London will have one of the highest valued TEFL certificates throughout the world. Our teaching facility is located in Tower Hamlets which is close to the city centre and the most attractive boroughs in the city. There are a wide variety of restaurants, cafes, bars, universities, colleges and shops located just a short walk from our school. For the braver of you, why not try an excursion to the nearby London Dungeon or Southwark which has many alluring things to see and do both day and night.
Other famous attractions in the City include the London Eye, the Houses of Parliament, the exciting nightlife of Leicester Square and Soho, shops, museums and theatres. Modes of transport such as the tube, mainline trains, taxis and buses can also be used for those who don’t like to walk.
The practical part of our course involves teaching non-English speaking students who are in London mainly for the purpose of learning English. They are therefore willing and enthusiastic students who have the best motivation to learn the language.

What travel documents will I need for england?Expand
This information is specific to your country of origin. For the most accurate and current information regarding travel documents for the UK, please contact your nearest British consulate. There is also a very good chance that all the information you require (application documents, application fees, duration of processing documents) is available on the embassy’s webpage.
What is the course schedule?Expand
From Monday to Friday there are input sessions every morning from 9:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. during which trainees learn classroom management, grammar and other practical aspects of the course. Lunch is from 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. From 2:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. trainees prepare their lessons (with the assistance of their instructors) and then teach them to real ESL students. These lessons are followed by feedback from the instructors. Our goal is to provide six to ten hours of observed teaching practice over the four-week course. These lessons are taught from Monday to Thursday. On Friday, trainees are free after 1:00 p.m. and the weekend is also free. In addition to these hours, there is also time that must be spent preparing materials and completing various assignments.
What can I expect during teaching practice?Expand
We use local non-English-speaking students for the trainees’ teaching practice. Our students are very keen and enthusiastic and come to classes purely because they want to!
Lessons are based upon real teaching resources found all over the world and you will have the chance to create your own materials as well. You will 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.
Who usually attends the course?Expand
On average, we have around 20 trainees enrolled on each course. Most of our participants are from English-speaking countries such as: the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada or Australia. We do accept non-native speakers of English who have a high proficiency in the language.
Is there a dress code?Expand
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?Expand
The only thing you will really need for the course is a notepad and something to write with. If you have a laptop and would like to bring it, you are welcome to do so as the center offers free Wi-Fi.
