TEFL Kathmandu | TEFL Nepal

Nepal is a magical place and taking a TEFL course here will see you studying right in the heart of Kathmandu, Nepal’s most dynamic and sophisticated city. Upon completion of the course, we will help you find a job and you will be well on your way to beginning a wonderful new career teaching EFL.

The birthplace of the Buddha, Nepal is nestled among the awe inspiring peaks and foothills of the Himalayas. Its scenery is simply astonishing and offers some of the best hiking opportunities to be found anywhere in the world. Although Nepal is not a wealthy country monetarily, its friendly and welcoming people, its diverse and interesting religions, its cultural history and traditions, as well as its astounding scenery make it a very rich country indeed.

Suburban Kathmandu spills out primarily east of Kantipath, the principle north-south conduit that runs through the city, and is identifiable by two main landmarks: the Royal Palace and the Tundikhel parade ground. The majority of the more up-market hotels, restaurants and shops are grouped together along Durbar Marg, the wide thoroughfare that extends south from the palace gate. To the west of the Bishnumati River you will find the important religious complex of Swayambhunath perched on a hilltop overlooking the city. Also known as the Monkey Temple, this area is well worth a visit and is accessible by foot.

From the mesmerising Himalayan peaks to the verdant national parks, the myriad of pagodas and temples, the teeming markets, street vendors and the bars and clubs of Kathmandu, Nepal really does offer something for everyone.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What are my payment options?


    Course deposits must be paid to our administrative center. 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 Kathmandu itself.

    The balance of the course fees must be paid in cash in USD or Nepali currency in Kathmandu. All payments must be received by the end of lunch on the first day of the 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.

    * All the hotels we use for your accommodation provide free airport pick-up services. You will therefore be met by a driver at the airport and be taken directly to your hotel.

  • What are my accommodation options?


    We can book accommodation for you in our preferred hotels in Kathmandu. You are, of course, more than welcome to make your own accommodation arrangements. After you have secured your place on the course we will provide full accommodation details and ask you to fill in an accommodation preference form. All payments are made directly to the hotel by cash or credit card either on arrival or on departure.

    We can offer you a range of prices according to the standard of hotel and the type of room you would like to book. Prices for a basic hotel start at US$ 407 per month (for a single, non-AC room). Prices for a standard hotel start at US$ 559 per month (for a single, non-AC room).

    Typically, a room in either a basic or standard option hotel will have single, double or twin beds, a wardrobe, a small desk and a private bathroom with shower. Some rooms may have a TV. All rooms have hot water. The difference between the basic and standard options is predominantly the facilities the hotel offers and the general standard of the hotel; although we are happy with the cleanliness and standard of all hotels we accommodate you in.

  • What travel documents will I need for Nepal?


    At the time of writing, all visitors to Nepal (excluding Indian nationals), require a visa. Tourist visas can be obtained on arrival at the airport for every nationality other than Chinese, or at most overland borders. Please note your passport should have at least six months validity remaining on arrival in Nepal.*

    * 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. For more information on obtaining visas please check with your local Nepalese consulate or embassy.

  • What is the course schedule?


    We hold an orientation session at 9:00 a.m. on the first day of the course. We recommend that you arrive in Kathmandu at least one day before in order to familiarize yourself with your surroundings and at least un-pack your bags before orientation.

    Class-time is generally from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. five days a week (Monday to Friday) with breaks in between classes. A typical day in the classroom consists of four 1.5 hour ‘inputs’. Approximately six-eight days will be spent preparing and undertaking your teaching practice sessions. Course timetables will be distributed during the first input session on the first day of the course.

  • What can I expect during teaching practice?


    Your teaching practice will be conducted in a range of local governmental and private, primary and secondary schools and in some instances we may be teaching at orphanages, colleges and other institutions.

    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?


    We average eight trainees on each course. The majority of trainees are British or American, while many others come from Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Ireland, South Africa and the Philippines. Occasionally, we do get fluent non-native English speakers from Western Europe, Scandinavia, India, China, Thailand, etc. Trainees must be 18 years of age or older and the age range varies greatly depending on the course.

  • Is there a dress code?


    There are no specific dress requirements for the input sessions held at the training centre. We do, however, ask you to be respectful of the country that you are in and ask you to dress in a modest fashion (no miniskirts, short shorts, low-cut tops etc.).

    During teaching practice there are specific requirements that adhere to the local dress code. All trainees are expected to dress professionally according to the following guidelines:

    Women: Shoulders should be covered, blouses with sleeves are suggested. No low-cut necklines, very short skirts or bare midriffs. Open-toed shoes are acceptable, but not hiking or flip-flop sandals.

    Men: Long pants, slacks or trousers are required, jeans are not acceptable. Short or long-sleeved shirts with a collar are necessary, although a tie is not required. Loafers or dress shoes are both fine, sandals are not acceptable. Long hair should always be tied back.

  • What should I bring for course studies?


    Please be sure to arrive on the first day of the course with a notebook and a pen. We 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.
