The School

Our TEFL training center in Corinth is perfectly located near your accommodation and is only a ten-minute walk from the beach. Our center’s facilities are air conditioned and roomy. We have a large classroom that is well-equipped with audio devices, visual aids and an overhead projector.

Our center has a wonderful resource library with a large variety of books and materials. We also have community space where trainees can gather to chat, relax, grab refreshments and unwind. We have plenty of computers but feel free to bring your laptop so as to take advantage of our free Wi-Fi.

With the help of our experienced training staff, you’ll 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’ll have a friendly and supportive environment in which to learn the skills needed to become an effective teacher.

Our lead trainer has over 25 years’ experience. He’s been published in many local ESL journals and has also been published in larger, international professional journals. He’s been a guest lecturer in both Athens and London, and is more than capable of providing all his trainees with the tools and skills they need to go on and become great ESL teachers.

    Expand thin line on white background

    Teaching practice takes place in the afternoon, generally between five and eight o’clock. The majority of our teaching practice is with young teenagers at a small private school near Vrahati. At certain times of the year we also have additional practice at the training center.

    Each trainee usually teaches once per day to make up the total of ten hours during the course. Trainers provide extensive help with planning each lesson and give written feedback which forms the basis of the feedback discussion after each lesson.

    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 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.

  • Who usually attends the course?

    Expand thin line on white background

    The maximum class size in Corinth is 16. Most of the participants are American, British, Canadian or Australian, although we do accept non-native speakers of English who have a high proficiency in the language.

  • 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?

    Expand thin line on white background

    Please be sure to arrive on the first day of the course with a notebook and a pen. We also encourage you to bring a laptop as we have Wi-Fi at the training center. We will provide all course materials for you so there is no need to bring anything else for the course itself.
