The San Francisco training center is ideally located near to the historic Union Square, which is the main hub in the North East of the city. The training center is a fully operating English language teaching school, which gives you the opportunity to teach real English Language Learners (ELL’s) and this is a very important part of any TEFL/TESOL training course.
Typical numbers of trainees on a course are between 10 and 12, which is small enough to get individual attention when needed, but also large enough for group interaction. The school itself has six modern, well equipped classrooms and a resource library which is also well stocked. An in-house refreshments area supplies tea and coffee and a small shop sells a range of snacks. The school also has Wi-Fi and photocopiers for trainee use.
Teaching times for your TEFL/TESOL course are usually in the first week of the month running Wednesday to Friday between 5:30 p.m. and 10:30 p.m., then over the weekend between 9:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. on both Saturday and Sunday.
