Corinth, situated on the Peloponnese Peninsula, has some of the country’s most visited archaeological sites outside of Athens. Visiting this area offers a great opportunity to learn about traditional greek culture and history. You will find many historic ruins and endless countryside to explore; it is also situated just 50 miles from the capital city.

You will find that the area provides all the amenities you will require during your stay with us. There are a wide variety of cafes, bars, restaurants and beaches, as well as local services such as shops, banks, travel agencies and public transport to Athens and the surrounding areas.

Some interesting places to visit during your stay in Corinth include:

St. Paul’s Metropolitan Church: According to legend, St. Paul spoke to the Corinthians from the tribune here. Visiting this church is definitely an opportunity not to be missed. Acrocorinth: You will experience amazing views from the Temple of Aphrodite at the top of the 575 metre hill. The Venetians, Turks and Byzantines left these extensive ruins and the remarkable wall dates back to medieval times. Ancient Corinth: The main attraction in this area is the ancient town just 7 kilometres from Corinth. There are a number of remarkable sites, most notably the Temple of Apollo dating back to the 5th Century B.C. This site also has its own museum displaying fabulous mosaics and statues. Corinth Canal: The creation of this canal began in 67 A.D. but remained unfinished until 1893. The canal, which is six kilometres long, was blasted through the Peloponnese to avoid having to travel around it by boat. Train and bus routes from Corinth to Athens pass over it but you will appreciate this site’s 90 meter high walls most by seeing it from the water.

Athens International Airport is just 90 minutes away from Corinth. There are trains available from Demokratias which offer a good service running in both directions. There are also three bus stations which can take you to Corinth.

Our ITTT centre in Corinth has close connections with a local recruitment agency who can offer you support in securing a TEFL/TESOL position. Once you have completed your course, we will be there to help you secure a teaching job in Greece or anywhere else in the world you choose.

    Expand

    Teaching practice takes place in the afternoon, generally between five and eight o’clock. The majority of our teaching practice is with young teenagers at a small private school near Vrahati. At certain times of the year we also have additional practice at the training center.

    Each trainee usually teaches once per day to make up the total of ten hours during the course. Trainers provide extensive help with planning each lesson and give written feedback which forms the basis of the feedback discussion after each lesson.

    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 also 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

    The maximum class size in Corinth is 16. Most of the participants are American, British, Canadian or Australian, although 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

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