As a leading global financial hub, and with a long history shaped by people from all over the world, the city has a truly international air.

Our Hong Kong TEFL training center is located in the heart of Kwun Tong District. Nearby is the Ngau Tou Kok MTR station on the Kwun Tong Line, making it possible to reach the airport, Kowloon, Causeway Bay, Disneyland and many other attractions in less than hour and ferry rides to the outlying islands are readily accessible. Kwun Tong offers great choice for food lovers of all persuasions, whether it is local fare or international cuisine you are looking for, you will find it in the backstreets of Kwun Tong.
Our TEFL classroom is located on the 18th floor of a recently renovated office tower in the center of Kwun Tong. From the classroom there is a stunning 180-degree view of Victoria Harbour, stunning in the day time but even more spectacular as the skyscrapers light up when the sun goes down. Our location near to the harbour means that you can take full advantage of the seafood paradise that is Lei Yun Mun, an area of Kwun Tong famous for its markets and restaurants selling fresh crabs, lobster, jumbo shrimp and other seafood.
Our training center has a modern lounge with a coffee machine, refrigerator and microwave. We also provide the following services:
- Long-distance direct dial upon request;
- Printing and fax with service fees;
- Incoming and outgoing mail assistance.
We have several accommodation options available for our Hong Kong TEFL course attendees. Housing options are located in the Kowloon area and it takes approximately one hour from the accommodation sites to the TEFL school. We strongly advise that you get an ‘Octopus Card’ as soon as you arrive. This is a ‘master pass’ that allows you to travel to most parts of Hong Kong on the city’s extensive public transport network.
The price for reserving a monthly room starts at around $US450. Rooms are available on a ‘first come, first served’ basis so be sure to book your place ahead of time.
Accommodation options include:
- A local youth hostel: Rates for this option vary between $US15 to 60 per night. Lower rates are for a shared room. We recommend checking major hostel websites for details on reservation. We are more than happy to assist, should you require further help.
- Staying with a local family: Prices range from $US400 to 800. This is a great option for those wanting to experience the real Hong Kong, giving you the opportunity to really get to know the locals and make friendships that will last a lifetime. This option is subject to availability.
- You can also choose from hundreds of hotels and guesthouses in Hong Kong. The local Hong Kong Tourist Bureau can provide extensive information about the options available throughout the city or you can make a reservation through your usual booking website.
We will make every effort to assist you with your accommodation requirements while you are in Hong Kong and we recommend that you make your arrangements as soon as you book your flight. The sooner you start preparing, the more options you will have. However, please note that we cannot guarantee that all the options will be available. This is due to the availability of spaces, peak travel season, etc.
