TEFL Courses in Rome | Italy

Our teacher training facility in Rome offers so much more than just a certificate for teaching.

Rome is at the center of European history and Italian culture. For thousands of years, the city has played an integral part of European religion, history and culture. Attending our course in Italy’s capital is a once in a lifetime opportunity to absorb Rome in ways that an average tourist can only envy.

‘The Eternal City’ as it’s known, is breathtaking. Travelers can inundate their senses with leisurely strolls down cobblestone streets or by sitting in one of Italy’s famous city squares (piazzas). From touring sites that have witnessed a turbulent past, to a simple afternoon spent relaxing with a cooling portion of gelato (Italian ice cream), our trainees love it here.

Rome is as cosmopolitan as it is modern. It’s one of the few cities that escaped the bombing raids of WWII, so centuries-old buildings and architecture remain unscathed. It has retained its Renaissance and baroque character as well, and the city center of Rome is rightfully listed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.

Rome hosts many festivals as well. Exhibitions, concerts and other shows take place throughout the year and themes include everything from fashion and modern art to theater, music and dance from all over Europe.

Live and work in italy with a tefl certificate

With our internationally accredited certificate in-hand, trainees are witnesses to all of Rome’s rich history, culture and beauty. Teaching English here is the best way to acquaint oneself with this truly magnificent city. We’ll also do everything we can to ensure trainees get the most they possibly can from living and working here.

Rome is on the West coast, midway between Italy’s northern and southern borders. While the city is expansive, the historic center is compact and very tourist-friendly. Only 12 miles from the coast, Rome is perfectly located to combine the aspects of a major city with the relaxed nature of Mediterranean life and its beaches.

In addition to certifying trainees as tefl teachers, we also offer worldwide lifetime job support so we can help course graduates find teaching work in italy or anywhere else there is demand for qualified efl teachers.

The School

Our TEFL training center in Rome is housed in a modern building with comfortable, well-furnished classrooms. It’s a lovely setting, equipped with video facilities, the Internet and a wide range of other teaching resources.

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 provide a supportive environment in which to learn the skills needed to become an effective teacher. In addition to the trainers and students, our office staff are helpful, diligent and will make every effort to help you throughout your training.

The school is located very near the Vatican and a nearby subway line that provides easy and convenient access to all areas of interest within Rome. Surrounding the center is an array of cafes, shops, bars and restaurants.

An additional course is also available to trainees who wish to study Italian language. It is exclusive to our center’s trainees and cannot be taken as a course on its own. Each course starts with four intensive weeks of Italian language learning. Classes are conducted in small groups and students come from cities around the world. The course is fully accredited and facilitated by one of the most acclaimed language schools in Italy.

If you wish to participate in the Italian language course, please note this in the "additional comments" section of the application form.

Accommodation

The TEFL training course in Rome offers very comfortably furnished accommodation. All options are affordable, clean and located in safe neighborhoods.

Both our main choices consist of a private bedroom within a local apartment. The most popular choice is to share an apartment with an Italian landlord/landlady. You will share the kitchen and other living quarters but some apartments also come with a private bathroom. Our second choice is to share your apartment with other trainees from your training course.

The apartments are located just a short journey from the training center on the outskirts of central Rome. Nearby cafés and eateries are plentiful and nightlife abounds. Despite all these creature comforts, prices are much more reasonable than you would expect for housing near the center of this world-class city.

    Once you make your deposit, you will receive an email with an informational packet that provides detailed information about the course and Rome itself.

    The balance of course fees are payable on the first day of class and can be made with a credit/debit card or in cash. Alternatively, you can pay the balance via Pay Pal or bank transfer before the first day of class.

    Course fees are all-inclusive so you won’t be asked to pay additional costs for course related materials or services. This also includes course moderation and accreditation fees, airport pick-ups* and lifetime job assistance.

    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.

  • What should I bring for course studies?

    Expand thin line on white background

    Just like the first day of any other school, you will need some supplies. We will give you your course material and notebook, but you will need to have your own pens and pencils. You may also want scotch tape, a stapler, highlighters, colored pencils and markers, glue, scissors and white-out. You will also need to buy your own paper for the photocopier. All of these materials can be purchased from a store near the school if you do not wish to bring them from home.

    Please note that we have wireless internet available at the school for hooking up a laptop but normally there are no phone lines in the accommodation. There are numerous internet facilities all over Rome and should you require a computer for coursework at the school, we have a computer with internet access available in your classroom.
