TESOL Certifications in Corinth | TESOL in Greece

The Greek TEFL International TESOL training centre is located in the ancient city of Corinth. The centre offers an internationally recognized certified 120-hour, four-week TESOL course with up to 10 hours of teaching practice. The TESOL course is conducted by internationally experienced trainers in an educationally well-equipped centre. The TESOL course fees include the course itself, all course materials, certification, and a ‘meet and greet' at the railway station in Corinth, if required. At the completion of the course, graduates are also offered employment assistance.

Located 50 miles from Athens, Corinth is the gateway to the Peloponnese. Rich in history and mythology and a place of natural beauty, Corinth, the second largest city in the Peloponnese, has a multitude of sites of interest to visitors including the Temple of Apollo, the temple of Aphrodite, and the ancient fortress of Acrocorinth. Corinth and its surrounding areas offer visitors the opportunity to sample traditional Greek life. The modern city has all the facilities to make your stay enjoyable and memorable. The city is well equipped to meet the needs of visitors, and is an ideal location for your TESOL course.

So, what else is there to see in Corinth? There's the ‘ancient' Corinth, for starters. Corinth was one of the largest, wealthiest, most powerful and oldest cities of ancient Greece. Today, you can visit famous ruins, archeological sites and museums.

St. Paul's Metropolitan Church - It was in Corinth that St. Paul preached and wrote his two letters to the Corinthians. A visit to St. Paul's Metropolitan Church and the tribune from which St. Paul spoke to the people of Corinth is a must.

Acrocorinthos - the fortress is 575m high and its walls are a total of approximately 2,000m in length. The fortress was developed and maintained during the Byzantine, Roman, Turkish, and Venetian periods.

The Corinth Canal is a 6,343m gorge with 90m high walls linking the Corinthian and Saronic Gulfs. It is a maritime short cut that traces a straight line across the Isthmus of Corinth. Work on the canal began in 67AD but wasn't completed until 1893.

The School

The Corinth TEFL International training centre is ideally in the seaside village of Vrahati, eight miles from the modern city of Corinth. The TESOL center has a large classroom which is where TESOL course participants complete their teaching practice in the afternoons. The classroom is well-equipped with an overhead projector, modern audio-visual equipment and whiteboards. Another classroom with a round table is used for training and teaching smaller classes.

The Corinth TESOL training center has a resource library with a wide array of helpful materials. We also have lots of space to relax, in a friendly and pleasant atmosphere. TESOL course trainees can freely use all the facilities here. We have computers available for you to use, or you can bring your laptop and use the WiFi network.

Accommodation

We provide accommodation right across the road from the training centre. The main house has three twin rooms, one double and one single, accommodating a total of nine people. There are two bathrooms, a fully equipped kitchen with a washing machine, and a communal lounge. The whole house has wireless internet access. In addition to the balconies surrounding the house, there's also a large garden furnished with chairs and sun beds and a barbeque. The rooms are cleaned and sheets are changed weekly.

The house is two minutes' walk from the center of the village, with all the facilities you're likely to need, such as shops, post office, banks, bus station and a taxi rank. It’s a ten-minute walk from the beach. Vrahati has some excellent beaches, awarded with the European Union's Blue Flag, and is a busy resort in the summer. It's a center for nightlife, with plenty of cafes, restaurants, bars and night clubs, but still relatively unspoilt.

Other apartments in the area are rented according to demand, enabling all TESOL course trainees to make use of the facilities at the main house. Rooms in the main house are allocated on a first-come, first-served basis, so we recommend you reserve your place as early as possible.

Corinth is easy to reach using the direct suburban rail link from the airport railway station. Regardless of your accommodation choice, we’ll pick you up at the Corinth railway station and take you back there once the course is over — free of charge.

    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.
