Credit/debit card payments are the fastest and cheapest way to pay, but we also accept payments via Western Union, Pay Pal and bank transfer. While there are no deadlines for a deposit, courses can fill up quickly and your seat will only be reserved after the deposit has been paid. Once you make your deposit, you will receive an email with an informational packet that provides detailed information about the course and Alexandria itself.

    Please pay the balance of the course fees in Alexandria directly at the school on the first day of the course. Payment can be made in cash (US dollars or Egyptian pounds) or via Visa, Master Card, Maestro or JCB credit/debit cards. If paying by credit card you must have the actual card with your name on it for processing. Payment via bank transfers or checks should be arranged with the school prior to arrival.

    What travel documents will I need for egypt?

    You will be required to get a tourist visa (our course is registered as a seminar in Egypt, not as a school) from the nearest Egyptian Consulate or Embassy. This process takes about one week. You can also obtain your visa upon arrival in Cairo. However, we recommend getting your visa before you leave your home country so you do not have to waste time at the airport.*

    * As this information is subject to change at any time, we advise you to contact your local consulate for current travel regulations prior to planning your trip.

  • What is the course schedule?

    Close

    The first class will take place on Sunday morning at 9:30 a.m. Classes run from 9:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. There is a lunch break from 12:30 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. in addition to appropriate breaks between sessions. Classes run from Sunday through to Thursday, a typical school week in Egypt. The first two weeks are input sessions where trainees acquire skills related to teaching techniques, classroom management, grammar, phonology, Arabic language and culture and other components of the course.

  • What can I expect during teaching practice?

    Close

    We use local Egyptian students for the trainees’ teaching practice and all practice sessions are held in real classrooms.

    Teaching practice starts in the last two weeks of the course. It includes live teaching observation, shared teaching practice and six teaching practice classes. In a typical day our trainees go to the teaching practice school to give their lesson in the morning (transport is provided) and in the afternoon they prepare for the next teaching practice class with the assistance of the trainers at the center.

    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?

    Close

    We average eight trainees on each course. The majority of trainees are native English speakers but we also get some fluent English speakers from the local region training with us. Trainees must be 18 years of age or older and the age range varies greatly depending on the course.

  • Is there a dress code?

    Close

    During trainees’ lessons, casual attire is allowed. Egypt can get rather hot so this means sandals, shorts, t-shirts and other loose fitting clothing, cotton attire is best. During teaching practice you will need to dress in trousers/skirts and closed-toe shoes. Men need collared shirts, while women need to wear conservative tops that will cover their shoulders. Men also need to shave or keep facial hair neatly trimmed. No visible tattoos or facial piercings are allowed while teaching local students.

  • What should I bring for course studies?

    Close

    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.
