TEFL in Alexandria | TEFL Egypt | ITTT

Our center in Alexandria, Egypt offers you one of the most fascinating locations in which to complete a teacher training course. Egypt is home to the Valley of Kings, the fertile Nile basin and the Pyramids at Giza, while Alexandria hosts a perfect mixture of ancient culture and progressive urban life.

Egypt’s two largest cities, Cairo and Alexandria, are rich in modern infrastructure so most creature comforts are readily available. Outside of these two urban areas, the country has managed to hold on to an agricultural society that hasn’t changed much in over two thousand years.

Situated near the coastal waters of the Mediterranean Sea, Alexandria itself is Egypt’s second-largest city and sits as an oasis of cosmopolitan life. Before modern development, the city served as one of the most advanced port cities of its time. If scuba diving, remnants of the port can still be seen at the Lighthouse of Alexandria—one of the Seven Wonders of the World!

In addition to Alexandria, Cairo is a mere two-hour bus journey away. Besides the Pyramids of Giza, Cairo offers a plethora of great museums and other attractions. Between the ancient artifacts and modern museums, Egypt is where culture vultures come to feast.

Accommodation for this teacher training center is located in the coastal neighborhood of al-Agami—a relaxing seafront suburb of Alexandria. Your rooms will be private and your apartment will be shared with a fellow trainee. For the first two weeks of your course, this facility will double as an office in which you’ll be trained and plan your lessons.

Every one of our apartments is adequately furnished and cleaned on a weekly basis. While bedrooms are private, you and a fellow trainee will share a sitting room and bathroom with hot water and a fully-equipped kitchenette—including supplies for daily cleaning. We do ask that you bring your own bath towels and queen-sized bed sheets.

While staying in coastal Al-Agami, you’ll live comfortably amongst the city’s many restaurants, cafes and supermarkets that remain open even through the quieter low season (October to May). Better yet, Paradise Beach sits within 100 yards of the campus. While this is a private beach, TEFL International course trainees are able to take full advantage of exclusive access.

Al-Agami is situated 30 minutes from Alexandria’s city center. We offer free trips into the city twice a week. Public transport to the city center will run you about 5 Egyptians pounds, or taxis are available for around 20 Egyptian pounds. Of course, free transport is also provided to all schools in which you’ll be teaching.

    What travel documents will I need for egypt?

    You will be required to get a tourist visa (our course is registered as a seminar in Egypt, not as a school) from the nearest Egyptian Consulate or Embassy. This process takes about one week. You can also obtain your visa upon arrival in Cairo. However, we recommend getting your visa before you leave your home country so you do not have to waste time at the airport.*

    * As this information is subject to change at any time, we advise you to contact your local consulate for current travel regulations prior to planning your trip.

  • What is the course schedule?


    The first class will take place on Sunday morning at 9:30 a.m. Classes run from 9:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. There is a lunch break from 12:30 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. in addition to appropriate breaks between sessions. Classes run from Sunday through to Thursday, a typical school week in Egypt. The first two weeks are input sessions where trainees acquire skills related to teaching techniques, classroom management, grammar, phonology, Arabic language and culture and other components of the course.

  • What can I expect during teaching practice?


    We use local Egyptian students for the trainees’ teaching practice and all practice sessions are held in real classrooms.

    Teaching practice starts in the last two weeks of the course. It includes live teaching observation, shared teaching practice and six teaching practice classes. In a typical day our trainees go to the teaching practice school to give their lesson in the morning (transport is provided) and in the afternoon they prepare for the next teaching practice class with the assistance of the trainers at the center.

    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 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?


    We average eight trainees on each course. The majority of trainees are native English speakers but we also get some fluent English speakers from the local region training with us. Trainees must be 18 years of age or older and the age range varies greatly depending on the course.

  • Is there a dress code?


    During trainees’ lessons, casual attire is allowed. Egypt can get rather hot so this means sandals, shorts, t-shirts and other loose fitting clothing, cotton attire is best. During teaching practice you will need to dress in trousers/skirts and closed-toe shoes. Men need collared shirts, while women need to wear conservative tops that will cover their shoulders. Men also need to shave or keep facial hair neatly trimmed. No visible tattoos or facial piercings are allowed while teaching local students.

  • 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.
