TEFL School in Florence
Our TEFL school in Florence is situated in a traditional Italian area where our TEFL course students can meet, eat, converse and socialise with Italians who live and work in the immediate vicinity of the school. Therefore, our students gain exposure to the real side of Florence and its people rather than the Florence that is usually experienced by tourists. Of course, the main tourist centre of the city is nearby so you will have plenty of opportunity to visit the many sights.
This is one of our main aims for our students taking a TEFL course in Florence; we want each of them to have the opportunity to interact with and to be exposed to the traditional, unique and authentic Tuscan lifestyle. As many of our students decide to teach English in smaller Italian cities this is ideal preparation not only for teaching English in Italy but also to be able to adapt and feel comfortable wherever they decide to teach.
Our TEFL course students come from a wide variety of countries and backgrounds (although most do come from native English speaking countries). Our teacher trainers are all highly qualified and experienced, while our Italian support staff are also extremely helpful and happy to provide you with any assistance that you need in order to ensure that your time in Florence is as varied and enjoyable as possible.
Complete our application form now and look forward to teaching and learning amidst the beauty and excitement of Florence and Tuscany.
The accredited course in Florence is operated by an independent organization that issues its own certificate on completion of the course.

If you will be staying in Borgo San Lorenzo, there are many options on Air Bnb or we can give you names to contact directly.
Private Accommodation in Florence, Italy
Our first option is a private room in an apartment in Florence. These rooms are located in various areas of the city for you to choose from, and you may or may not (according to your wishes and availability) be placed with other TEFL course students.
Several of our apartments are also rented by Italian students of the Universita degli Studi di Firenze who are happy to share their apartment (though you will, of course, have your own private room) with a visiting TEFL course student. As you will have your own room, you are guaranteed privacy but at the same time you will have the opportunity to get to know a genuine Florentine student and to practice your Italian skills with a native Italian speaker.
Shared Accommodation in Florence, Italy
Our second option is a shared room in Florence (limited availability so book early to avoid disappointment). This tends to be a very popular choice, particularly if you are attending the TEFL course in Florence with a friend or partner. You will be provided with a single bed (or double if you are with your partner) in a shared room situated in the city.
All of our shared rooms are comfortably furnished and are well located throughout the city. This can also be a very good way to get to know one of our other TEFL course students in the area. ITTT students will usually be rooming together with this option, so you will always have someone to discuss your teaching and studying ideas with, or just for company while taking a coffee break or going out for a meal.
Home Stay Accommodation in Florence Italy
Our third accommodation option is a home stay. Many of the students who attend our TEFL courses wish to experience staying with an Italian host family. This is a very popular option for those students who really want to fully experience the Italian lifestyle.
During the day you will normally be occupied with studying and teaching. However, you will also have the opportunity to go to your accommodation and eat an authentic Italian dinner with your host family. This is particularly suitable if you have some basic knowledge of Italian and wish to practice and improve your language skills. Please note that with the home stay option overnight guests are not permitted.
