The history of this ancient city will greet you around every corner. To get a great impression of London, stand on Waterloo Bridge at Sunset. Look westward and see the medieval walls of Westminster, home to the ‘Mother of Parliaments’ which dates back to 1250. See the winding River Thames flow past using the same path it has done since the Roman settlement of Londinium, 2,000 years ago. Look eastward and see the great globe of St. Paul’s Cathedral, built in the 17th century, which still glows golden in the last of the sunlight, still glorious amongst the modern glass and steel towers.
Even with just its famous landmarks such as the Tower of London, Westminster Abbey, Big Ben and Buckingham Palace, London would be rated as one of the top cities in the world. However, there is so much more that London has to offer. It plays a leading role in international financial markets and is one of the three largest financial centres in the world. London is also well known for its West End entertainment and shopping area, with places such as Leicester Square, Covent Garden, Piccadilly Circus and Oxford Street attracting visitors all year round.Apply now & get certified to teach english abroad!

What is the course schedule?Expand
From Monday to Friday there are input sessions every morning from 9:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. during which trainees learn classroom management, grammar and other practical aspects of the course. Lunch is from 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. From 2:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. trainees prepare their lessons (with the assistance of their instructors) and then teach them to real ESL students. These lessons are followed by feedback from the instructors. Our goal is to provide six to ten hours of observed teaching practice over the four-week course. These lessons are taught from Monday to Thursday. On Friday, trainees are free after 1:00 p.m. and the weekend is also free. In addition to these hours, there is also time that must be spent preparing materials and completing various assignments.
What can I expect during teaching practice?Expand
We use local non-English-speaking students for the trainees’ teaching practice. Our students are very keen and enthusiastic and come to classes purely because they want to!
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?Expand
On average, we have around 20 trainees enrolled on each course. Most of our participants are from English-speaking countries such as: the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada or Australia. We do accept non-native speakers of English who have a high proficiency in the language.
Is there a dress code?Expand
For all input and tutorial sessions at the training location, there is only one specific dress requirement: Both men and women should have a shirt covering their shoulders. The course operates from within a school so we ask you to be mindful of this, as well as being mindful of your peers and to respect the fact that you are a visitor in another country.
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?Expand
The only thing you will really need for the course is a notepad and something to write with. If you have a laptop and would like to bring it, you are welcome to do so as the center offers free Wi-Fi.
