Get qualified to teach English with our TEFL course on the beautiful island of Gran Canaria in the Canary Islands located just 62 miles from the coast of Morocco.

You will find so much to entertain you in Gran Canaria, that whenever you are not working towards your TEFL certificate, you will feel like you are on vacation. When you cross the island’s sand dunes by camel or dune buggy you can be forgiven for thinking you are crossing the Sahara Desert. Alternatively, you’ll be transported to countries such as Peru as you explore the rainforest. Gran Canaria’s environment is so diverse the island is known as “The Little Continent”. Naturally, the beach is a major draw on this island and you will find plenty of exciting activities to take part in. Windsurfing and surfing are popular here and each year the windsurfing world cup is held in Pozo Izquierdo. Diving is also popular and those wishing to explore life beneath the waves can do so at one of the hundreds of fascinating dive spots with hundreds of marine species to see, some of which are unique to the Canary Islands.
For a more relaxed way to enjoy the island you could play a round of golf on one of the numerous championship golf courses on the island or you can simply enjoy a packed lunch next to a calm lake nestled in the island’s spectacular mountain ranges, which offer spectacular views comparable to a mini Grand Canyon or the Rocky Mountains.
Gran Canaria was chosen as the site of one NASA’s tracking stations for the manned space program in the 1960s. The site is now run by the European Space Agency but at the time of the Apollo 11 moon landing it was the first to receive Neil Armstrong’s famous message “That´s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind”. To this day, the atmospheric conditions on Gran Canaria make it a popular destination for amateur astronomers from all over the world.
