Is there TEFL certification near me?

Our in-class TEFL certification courses are available in a variety of locations around the world, and there might even be one near you. This type of course is very popular as many trainees find it more productive to be taught in person by an experienced teacher trainer rather than having to work through the course materials alone.

In-class TEFL course basics

ITTT in-class TEFL courses run for a period of four weeks and attendance is typically required from Monday to Friday. Each day will include a variety of input lessons and on some days you will also teach your practice lessons. Weekends are usually free so you can take the time to explore the local area, socialize with your classmates, or simply relax and prepare for the following week's study. The opportunity to meet new people is a big attraction of this method of study and many people find the camaraderie created among the study group makes the learning process easier and more enjoyable than independent study.

TEFL In-class Courses

In-class TEFL course trainers

At ITTT we only hire highly-qualified teachers who have many years of experience in different types of EFL classrooms in different international environments. Being able to ask questions and to get clarification on individual points from someone you know has the answers can make a huge difference to the learning process. If you join one of our in-class TEFL certification courses you can rest assured that your training will be led by some of the best trainers in the business.

In-class TEFL course teaching practice

Our classroom based TEFL course includes several hours of real teaching practice where you get to use all you have learned during your input classes. The input classes cover a wide range of EFL subjects, from teaching methodologies to classroom management. You can then practice your new teaching skills in an authentic EFL classroom containing genuine English language learners. You will plan each practice lesson under the watchful eye of a course trainer who will then observe your lesson and conduct a full debrief upon its conclusion. This approach allows you to develop your teaching skills in a safe and supportive environment before you head off to your first teaching job.

In-class TEFL course accommodation

If you are lucky you might find we have a TEFL training center near you, however, in most cases our trainees travel to a center of their choice and then stay in local accommodation. At every training center we can recommend a variety of accommodation options, many at discounted rates. We fully inspect every option to ensure your stay is both safe and comfortable. Our accommodation options vary with each location, but are generally one of the following:

  • Hotel
  • Bed & breakfast
  • Homestay
  • Shared apartment
  • Budget hostel

In-class TEFL course locations

Unfortunately, we are unable to operate our training centers in every country, but we do have a wide range of locations to choose from. We currently have over twenty international centers running in Africa, Asia, Europe and the Americas. Most are located in areas where there is a particularly high demand for TEFL qualified teachers and with the help of our staff you should be able to find a suitable job if you want to stay on after the course concludes. This can be an excellent way to get your teaching career started and once you have got some practical teaching experience to go with your TEFL certificate there should be nothing to stand in your way.
