It is easy to locate the Orange County training center as it is situated opposite the University of California. It is a fully operational language school located in Irvine, a short hop from the coast and Disneyland. Courses usually run in the second week of the month and your classes are scheduled Wednesday to Friday between 5:30 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. and on Saturday and Sunday between 9:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m.
As an operating language school you will have the benefit of applying your training to real English Language Learners (ELL’s) which is a huge benefit to any TEFL/TESOL course. Class sizes for trainees typically are around 10 to 12, so small enough for individual attention, yet large enough for good interaction opportunities within the group.
The local area is well served by a variety of public transport options, restaurants, cafés and bars. The school itself is also well equipped with Wi-Fi, photocopying facilities and 10 well stocked classrooms.
