TESOL Certifications in Granada | TESOL in Spain

The Granada TESOL course is in the perfect place to enjoy the present and discover the past. History is all around you here. Granada's rich cultural history and architecture is fervently kept alive. The sumptuous cuisine, the sound of Flamenco music played late into the night, and the coming together of Christianity and Islam is truly amazing—Grenada is a one-of-a-kind place.

Granada has one of the last fortresses of the Moorish empire to be built in Western Europe. The world renowned Alhambra and the Generalifé are examples of the magnificence of this intriguing civilization.

Here in 1492, Christopher Columbus gained the support he required and a charter from Queen Isabella to explore a new trade route to India, which eventually resulted in discovering the Americas.

Granada Cathedral is the tomb of the Catholic monarchs Ferdinand and Isabella. Visit The Medina, the Moroccan market of shops and tetarías (tea shops), in the shadow of Granada Cathedral, located in an intricate maze of narrow alleyways.

You can also visit the fascinating Sacromonté 'gipsy barrio', home of the "Flamenco puro", meet a totally unique people, with their ardour for dance and music, and see their intriguing cave homes.

Granada has a remarkable geography, being located in a magical valley between the relatively warm Mediterranean Sea and the mountains: only a 45-minute car ride to beaches, 75 minutes to Malaga, and 30 minutes to a ski resorts in the Sierra Nevada, 3,400 metres (11,050 feet) high.

Encounter the essence of Andalucían Spain during the Pasos of Semana Santa (Easter week), first enacted in medieval times and portraying the Passion of Christ. Costaleros carry massive, heavy statues of the Virgin Mary, Christ, and saints on their shoulders and process from the many churches in Granada, winding through the streets and into the Cathedral, finally returning to their own churches. Some of these journeys take 14 hours! The ancient brotherhood of the Cofradía, dedicated to the preservation of this and other celebrations throughout the year, takes part in the processions and decorates the statues, particularly those of the Virgin Mary.

Don't miss the Andalucían food, while visiting here. This cuisine is characterized by simple, yet delicious flavours. Favourites include Pescado Frito: fish delicately coated with flour and sautéed in olive oil; Gazpacho: the famous cold tomato soup, a vegetable cream made with cucumber, garlic, paprika, olive-oil, vinegar and served with bread; Patatas Pobre: a hot pot of vegetables and potatoes; Huevos a la Flamenca: a fried egg in tomato sauce with Chorizo, a spicy spanish sausage; and of course the delectable Paella!

Enjoy the social experience of "tapas", a famous daily Andalucian tradition, at one of the very many bars in the city; a favourite way to snack and get to know some people.

  • What is the course schedule?

    Expand

    The first session starts on Monday at 9:00 a.m. sharp.

    You will receive a course timetable on the first day of the course. The timetable is subject to change depending on holidays and other considerations.

    Trainees must attend all sessions included on the timetable unless they are sick and require medical treatment. This is particularly important for Teaching Practice (TP) as it is very difficult to arrange alternate TP times. You will normally have roughly three hours of input for each day of the course schedule.

    Teaching practice is usually held in the evenings and each lesson lasts for 60 minutes. Trainees either team-teach or observe these classes. When teaching, trainees are observed by qualified staff; feedback is given after each class, usually on the following day.

  • What can I expect during teaching practice?

    Expand

    Lessons are delivered to students aged 16 years and older. The vast majority of students are Spanish but other nationalities do attend some classes. Class size varies from one-to-one lessons up to 16 students. 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 receive the aid of your course trainer throughout lesson planning and receive 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

    We average 24 trainees on each course. The majority of trainees are British or American, while many others come from Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Ireland, South Africa and the Philippines. Occasionally, we do get fluent non-native English speakers from Western Europe, Scandinavia, India, China, Thailand, etc. Trainees must be 18 years of age or older and the age range varies greatly depending on the course.

  • Is there a dress code?

    Expand

    During trainees’ lessons, casual attire is allowed. There are specific dress requirements that adhere to the local Spanish culture and basic ideas of professionalism. All trainees are expected to dress ‘casually smart’. Visible tattoos and piercings are not acceptable. ‘Office standard’ hairstyles and coloring are also required.

  • 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. You may also want to bring a recording device, a digital Dictaphone or a smart phone would be ideal. We encourage you to bring a laptop as we have Wi-Fi at the training center. It is also a good idea to bring a thumb drive (data stick). We will provide all course materials for you so there is no need to bring anything else for the course itself.
