TESOL Certifications in Sydney | TESOL in Australia

Our Australian TESOL training centre is in Sydney, a city many believe to be the most popular multicultural city in the southern hemisphere. Many come to this vibrant metropolis of 4.5 million people to see the majestic Harbour Bridge, the fabled Opera House, the historic area of The Rocks, the stylish Sydney Tower, Darling Harbour and a number of other attractions. Sydney has many exciting opportunities for you during your stay.

The city of Sydney is very near a number of really beautiful beaches, national parks, and fun urban areas. With its clean air and bright, sunny blue sky, it's not hard to understand why over 10 million tourists visit Sydney yearly.

The most popular beach in Sydney is Bondi Beach, with its collection of shops and restaurants, beautiful scenic views and fun night spots. Most tourists gather here, so you can meet people from all around the world on the sand and in the pubs. Visit Cronulla Beach, if you want to experience a beach the locals frequent.

If you love animals, then you must visit Taronga Zoo and Sydney Wildlife World, which has a lot of Australia's wildlife living contentedly in replica sanctuaries. If you're into history, the city is full of 18th and 19th century buildings - each with their own story to tell. Finished in 1898, the Queen Victoria Building is one of Sydney's most memorable buildings. It has several levels of cafes and shops in an old-world style, making it an enjoyable retreat from the activity of the modern city. The Rocks district has been well preserved and modern shops are blended into areas that look like they did 200 years ago. There are over 15 museums in Sydney, featuring everything from science and discovery to art and history. The National Art Gallery and Australian Museum alone would take a couple of days to explore.

If festivals are your cup of tea, Sydney is certainly the place to be. From Chinese New Year and arts celebrations to the Royal Easter Show, there is at least one festival of some kind taking place every month in Sydney. The Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras Festival and Parade is the most popular festival of the year and takes place in February. The largest festival of its kind in the country, it attracts over 500,000 people on the day of the parade. If you're coming to Sydney in February, be sure to book your accommodation at least six months in advance!

Sydney is a very ethnically diverse city. People from almost every country in the world live here. Parts of Sydney look like London, while other parts look like Japan. Check out the suburbs such as Ashfield for Shanghai Town or Leichhardt for Little Italy, and visit the Korean and Spanish neighbourhoods as well.

Nightlife in Sydney is really dynamic. With hundreds of clubs, pubs, bars, restaurants and sporting venues, there is lots to do, with some places open 24 hours. Try a pub crawl tour, enter a pool competition, check out happy hour or visit a Bavarian bar. There's something for everyone at night in Sydney.

Sydney continues to build its huge train system, with new stations and networks appearing all the time. Trains will take you from the airport into the city. If there isn't a convenient train to take you where you want to go, you'll find a bus or taxi. If you're staying for a while, consider renting a car. Several main arteries throughout the town make navigating fairly quick and painless, and there's no beating a drive over the Sydney Harbour Bridge. Bus tickets are available throughout the city, with several options to choose from that can also make use of ferries from Circular Quay to Manly.

The TESOL course in Sydney has partnered with a local hostel that offers cheap, clean accommodation. You can choose to have a single room or you can share with others in a dormitory-style room, at a lower rate. The TESOL accommodation provides share and en suite bathroom facilities.

Should you be looking at premium accommodation, Sydney has a number of excellent hotels to choose from. We recommend you arrange this kind of accommodation yourself online. Prices generally begin at around AU$ 180 per day.

Accomodation Fees

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What are my payment options?


    Course deposits must be paid to our administrative center. Credit/debit card payments are the fastest and cheapest way to pay, but we also accept payments via Western Union, Pay Pal and bank transfer. While there are no deadlines for a deposit, courses can fill up quickly and your seat will only be reserved after the deposit has been paid.

    Once you make your deposit, you will receive an email with an informational packet that provides detailed information about the course and Sydney itself.

    The balance of the course fee is payable online before the course (credit/debit card, Pay Pal). We also accept cash payments on the first day of the course.

    Course fees are all-inclusive so you won’t be asked to pay additional costs for course related materials or services. This also includes course moderation, accreditation fees and lifetime job assistance.

  • What are my accommodation options?


    We have partnered with a hostel in the neighborhood that will provide trainees with the most affordable accommodation available (AU$ 2,200 for 4 weeks). Other options are also available and we are happy to provide you with the details of these. If you would like to book accommodation directly through us, please note that you will be charged a service fee.

  • What travel documents will I need for australia?


    This information is specific to your country of origin. For the most accurate and current information regarding travel documents for Australia, please contact your nearest consulate. There is also a very good chance that all the information you require (application documents, application fees, duration of processing documents), is available on the embassy’s webpage.

  • What is the course schedule?


    From Monday to Friday, there are input sessions every morning from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. when trainees learn classroom management, grammar, language and culture and other practical aspects of the course. The lunch break is from 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. In the afternoon, trainees prepare their lessons with assistance from their trainer. They may either be teaching their lessons to international students in a classroom situation or be involved in one of the other unique and exciting aspects of our course, such as observing teachers, getting advice on starting your own tutoring business, learning about IELTS or teaching private students. These lessons are followed by feedback from the trainer. We aim to provide six to ten hours of observed teaching practice over the 4-week course. On three of the Fridays from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. there is a special language acquisition module where you learn a foreign language so that you can understand what it is like for a non-native speaker to learn English.

  • What can I expect during teaching practice?


    We use international students for the trainees’ classroom teaching practice. These students are very keen and enthusiastic and because we only charge a nominal fee for them to attend, all students come to classes purely because they want to! We also use international students for the private tuition sessions. The private students do not pay for these one hour lessons so they are very excited to be part of it!

  • Who usually attends the course?


    On average we have around six trainees enrolled on each course, although this number does vary throughout the year. Most of our participants are from English speaking countries such as America, The United Kingdom, Canada or Australia, although we do accept non-native speakers of English who have a high proficiency in the language.

  • Is there a dress code?


    Please check the weather for the time of year that you are staying with us as it can vary considerably. Australians generally wear layers as the weather can change from hour to hour.

    Input Sessions and Lesson Planning:

    Attire is casual and relaxed. While there is air conditioning available, please dress comfortably.

    Practice Teaching Sessions at the Training Centre:

    Attire is smart and conservative. Your shoulders must be covered and skirts or trousers must cover your knees when you are sitting down. For women, be careful that your shirts are not too low cut or show your stomach as you may need to lean over to help a student sitting at a desk. Jeans and shorts are not acceptable. Shoes or sandals should be smart in appearance.

  • What should I bring for course studies?


    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.
