TEFL/TESOL Courses in Rome

Rome is Italy’s largest and most populated city and you will find it a cosmopolitan and modern place, although it still manages to maintain its essential Baroque and Renaissance character. Rome was one of only a small number of European cities that was left comparatively unmarked by World War II, a fact that was acknowledged when the centre of the city was awarded the status of a UNESCO World Heritage Site during the 1980’s.

One of the most famous features in Rome is the Coliseum. It was the largest amphitheatre to be built during the Roman Empire and was originally used for gladiatorial combat. Rome is home to many other important monuments, such as the Pantheon, the Catacombs of Rome, the Circus Maximus, the Bocca della Verità and the Roman Forum.

Rome is a cultural important city and the location for many of the events, exhibitions, shows and concerts that take place in Italy. The city has many festivals going on throughout the year which include fashion, modern art, theatre, dance and music, with artists appearing from all over Europe.

By studying one of our courses and then teaching English in Italy you have the opportunity to familiarise yourself with this wonderful country and its people. At ITTT we will gladly assist you in any way possible to ensure that your time in Rome is so much more than you imagined it to be. Rome is located just twelve miles from the coast and therefore well situated to unite the lively city with beautiful Mediterranean beaches, providing a great opportunity for some relaxation in your spare time. There are always a large number of teaching positions available in Italy, especially in Rome. This explains why Rome is such a great location for studying an ITTT course.

Italian Language Courses in Rome – An Optional Extra

We also offer an optional extra language course which can only be taken in conjunction with our main TEFL/TESOL course. At the beginning of the program is a 4-week intensive Italian language course studied in small numbers with students from all over the world. This course is supplied by one of Italy’s best Italian language schools and is a fully accredited course. The school has been providing first class Italian tuition for a number of years and is recognised by the Italian Ministry of Education. A large number of the students who participate in this course are from the USA and Western Europe, however, many students also come from a variety of other countries and this benefits our students by providing an interesting multi-cultural class to learn from.

Our Italian training course is open to all ability levels. Before the start of your course your Italian language skills will be evaluated to ensure that you are placed in a class of students with similar language abilities. It can be arranged for you to lengthen the period of your Italian course past the 4 weeks, but this needs to be discussed and agreed with our staff before the start of your course.

Our exclusive 8 week training program provides a unique opportunity to really experience Italy’s culture, while also developing your Italian language skills and living in one of the world’s most important historical and cultural cities. Your Italian experience starts with the 4-week Italian language course before progressing on to the world renowned, 4-week ITTT TEFL/TESOL certification course.

Please be advised that the 4-week intensive Italian language course can only be studied in conjunction with the ITTT TEFL/TESOL course. The complete cost for the two courses together (8 week program) is 2290 euro, plus accommodation.
