TEFL/TESOL School in Florence
Our school in Florence is situated in a traditional Italian area where our course students can meet, eat, converse and socialise with Italians who live and work in the immediate vicinity of the school. Therefore, our students gain exposure to the ‘real’ Florence and its people, rather than the Florence that is usually experienced by tourists. Of course, the main tourist centre of Florence is nearby so you will have plenty of opportunity to visit the many sights.
This is one of the main aims for our students on our courses in Florence; we want each of them to have the opportunity to interact with the traditional, unique and authentic Tuscan lifestyle. As many of our students decide to teach English in smaller Italian cities this is ideal preparation not only for teaching English in Italy but also to be able to adapt and feel comfortable wherever they decide to teach.
Our course students come from a wide variety of countries and backgrounds (although the majority are from native English speaking countries). Our teacher trainers are all highly experienced professionals and our Italian support team is also extremely helpful and happy to give you all the assistance that you need to ensure that your time in Florence is as varied and enjoyable as possible.
