Is there TEFL certification near me?

ITTT offers in-class TEFL certification courses in numerous locations worldwide, and there could be one conveniently located near you. This format is highly sought after, as many participants prefer the interactive, face-to-face instruction provided by experienced teacher trainers over self-paced study.

In-class TEFL course basics

ITTT's in-class TEFL courses have a duration of four weeks, and participants are usually expected to attend from Monday to Friday. Each day encompasses a mix of instructional sessions, with some days also dedicated to practice teaching. Weekends are typically free, allowing participants to explore the local area, engage with classmates, or simply unwind and prepare for the upcoming week of study. The chance to form new connections is a significant advantage of this learning format, as many individuals find that the camaraderie within the study group enhances the learning experience compared to self-directed study.
