TEFL International’s center in Corinth is a four-week, 120-hour course that includes teaching practice, trainers with extensive expertise in the field and results in a certification that is internationally recognized. On top of this, the school is associated with a local recruitment company and we’ll provide employment assistance for any location in which you wish to teach. Our facilities and accommodation are comfortable and clean. All course materials and an airport pick-up are included in the course fees.
Located on the Peloponnese Peninsula and very near pristine beaches, Corinth is rich with archeological sites. Outside Athens, Corinth is the most visited site on Greece’s mainland. This course represents a unique opportunity to absorb Greek history and culture. We’re only 50 miles from Athens and we have a beautiful countryside with fantastic ruins to explore nearby. Towering above the ancient town is the Acrocorith: a fortress used by Byzantine, Venetian and Turkish forces occupying the area during the Middle Ages.
The city has all the amenities you’ll need in order to enjoy your stay. We have charming cafes and bars, delicious restaurants, banks, shops and public transport for exploring the surrounding area.
A few of the interesting places to go during your TEFL course in Corinth are: Ancient Corinth – 3 miles from Corinth itself, this is the main attraction of the area. It houses the Temple of Apollo and acts as a great, on-site museum.
St. Paul’s Metropolitan Church – St. Paul himself spoke to the people of Corinth here and it’s a must-see.
Acrocorinthos – Conquering forces left these ruins that date back to medieval times and the Temple of Aphrodite sits atop the 200-foot hill, providing spectacular views.
Corinth Canal – Began just 67 years after Christ’s death and not completed until 1893, this three-mile-long canal was built so boats didn’t have to go around the peninsula.
Corinth is easy to get to from the Athens Int’l Airport. There’s a train station that offers a busy schedule running to and from Athens. As well, three different bus stations serve Corinth.
TEFL International’s training center in Corinth is perfectly located near your accommodation and is only a ten-minute walk from the beach. Facilities are air conditioned and roomy. We have a large classroom that is well equipped with audio devices, visual aids and an overhead projector.
Our center has a large resource library with a huge selection of materials and books. We’ve also got community space where trainees can gather to chat, relax, grab refreshments and unwind. We have plenty of computers but feel free to bring your laptop for connecting to our Wi-fi network.
Our lead trainer has over 25 years of experience. He’s published in local ESL journals on a regular basis and has also been published in international professional journals. He’s been a guest lecturer in both Athens and London and is more than capable of providing all his trainees with the tools and skills they need to go on and become great ESL teachers.
Corinth is reached by a direct rail service from the station inside Athens Airport. We offer a free transfer service from the railway station to your accommodation.
Accommodation is nearly a stone’s throw from the beach and located just across the road from the training center. The main house holds nine people between one single room, one double room and three twin rooms. Rooms are clean and bedding is changed weekly.
The house also has two bathrooms, a washroom, a lounge and fully equipped kitchen. Wi-fi runs through the house and it also has balconies surrounding the house as well as a large yard with sun beds and a barbeque grill.
After a two-minute walk from the house you’ll be in the heart of the village where you’ll find banks, shops, a post office, taxi stands and the bus station. The neighborhood beaches are excellent and have earned the European Union’s Blue Flag. Nightlife is lively with restaurants, cafes, clubs and bars throughout the village—yet the neighborhood remains true to Greek traditions.
Rooms in the main house are allocated on a first-come, first-served basis and once you make your deposit payment, you’ll be able to request your room. We have other accommodation options nearby and those who stay in these apartments can still use the facilities in the main house.
