TEFL Rome | TEFL Italy

The ancient Romans called Rome “The Eternal City” as they believed it would go on forever and indeed this seems to be the case. Even if you have never visited Rome before you have probably seen the city in films and are familiar with some of its monuments and landmarks such as the Colosseum, the Roman Forum, the Pantheon, the Trevi Fountain, the Spanish Steps and of course the Vatican City. In fact, the entire centre of Rome is a UNESCO world heritage site.

Rome hosts many festivals as well. Exhibitions, concerts, Expo and other shows and events take place throughout the year and themes include everything from technology, fashion and modern art to theatre, music and dance from all over the world. The city is brimming with history, arts and culture. From the opera to pop culture, from pizzerias to nightclubs, Rome has it all.

Once was the heart of Western civilization, Rome is now the soul of the European Union. Above and beyond all the sightseeing you can do, you can also enjoy a leisurely stroll down the narrow cobbled streets of Trastevere or Monti, enjoy delicious pizza, pasta and ice-cream and wash it down with some top quality wine. You can escape city life in one of Rome’s large green parks, relax by the Tevere river or hop on a train and go to the coast in 30 minutes. Best of all, you can become more than a tourist and get to know the vibrant Italian lifestyle and friendly locals. You can experience Rome!

The Rome TEFL/TESOL certificate course is demanding, but if you are going to study somewhere, you may as well to do so in pleasant surroundings surrounded by culture and amazing views.

Another good reason to consider Rome for your TEFL/TESOL course is that Italy has a thriving English teacher job market; from the moment you arrive you can start building your future.

All roads lead to Rome, after all.

Our Rome TEFL training centre is located near one of Rome’s most typical and attractive neighborhoods, Trastevere. All around the building are plenty of shops, bars, supermarkets and restaurants, and the location is well-connected to all forms of public transport. There is a bus stop right outside the school, the metro is close by and Trastevere train station is just eight to ten minutes walk away.

The school itself is bright and friendly with well equipped classrooms. They have computers, internet connection and projectors in every classroom so you can be even more flexible and creative with your lesson planning. There is also plenty of space for you to stay and plan your lessons at the school where there will always be a teacher trainer on hand to help you if need be.

Partners and clients of our school are private individuals, state and commercial organizations. At the same time, half of our students are children and teenagers aged between five and fourteen years.

  • What travel documents will I need for italy?

    Close

    This information is specific to your country of origin and always subject to change. For the most accurate and current information regarding travel documents to Italy, please contact your nearest Italian consulate. There is also a very good chance that all the information you require (application documents, application fees, duration of processing documents) is available on the embassy’s webpage.

  • What is the course schedule?

    Close

    Classes generally begin at 9:30 a.m. and run until 1:30 p.m. during which grammar and theory are discussed. Afternoons are spent planning lessons with our trainers. Trainees then teach their lessons during the afternoons and evenings, possibly until 8:30 p.m.

  • What can I expect during teaching practice?

    Close

    Annually, our school has about 900 students of all ages and all levels, so our trainees will have the opportunity to experience all kinds of teaching situations. The students come from many backgrounds, countries (though typically Italy) and work places.

    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

    On average we have about twenty five students enrolled on each program, most of whom are American or British, but we also have students from Australia, New Zealand and South Africa amongst others. Ages range from 20 to 60 years old, although the majority of our students are between 22 and 30 years old.

  • Is there a dress code?

    Close

    During trainees’ lessons, casual attire is allowed. 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. No visible tattoos or facial piercings are allowed while teaching local students.

  • What should I bring for course studies?

    Close

    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.
