Known to many people as the birthplace of democracy and to others as the home of iconic landmarks such as the Acropolis and the Parthenon, Athens is anything but anonymous. This great European capital boasts an array of fascinating attractions both old and new, as well as easy access to some of the best beaches and coastline on the Mediterranean.
To add to its worldwide attraction, Athens is also known for the warm welcome that it offers to visitors no matter where they come from. If you also consider the superb climate, extensive cultural highlights, and the countless outdoor cafes, restaurants and taverns serving authentic Greek dishes, then it is easy to see why the city maintains its wide popularity year after year.
Many course trainees take the opportunity to visit one or more of the region’s stunning islands during their stay. The beautiful islands of Santorini and Mykonos can be reached via a 30 minute flight from the capital, while Hydra and Spetses are a two hour cruise away by hydrofoil.Apply now & get certified to teach english abroad!
The Athens training center could not be better situated as it is right in the midst of the downtown area. Getting around is easy as we have many transport options right on our doorstep. Buses, trolley-buses, and the Metro are all easily accessible for exploring all parts of the city. Our central location is certainly convenient, but it doesn’t mean it is noisy or congested. In fact, the local area is home to several of the city’s more peaceful landmarks including the House of Parliament, the National Library and the Academy of Letters.
For over 30 years the center has been training new teachers. At the last count it had graduated in excess of 3000 trainees who have gone on to teach in classrooms all over the world. Our popularity is due to the following commitments:
- High quality tutoring and extensive support during and after your course
- An outstanding track record of results
- A strong social media presence which is used for the benefit of our trainees and alumni
- Our international PLN (Personal Learning Network), a resource that is available to our alumni for life
- Our experience working with thousands of teachers from around the globe
The Athens center is happy to offer great value accommodation to all trainees in the form of a private room in an apartment shared with fellow course participants.
