TEFL in Kolkata | TEFL India | ITTT

Kolkata, is famous for its literary, artistic and cultural heritage. It was once India’s capital city and is still home to exquisite buildings, museums and galleries. Held in high esteem by locals and known as the ‘City of Joy’, Kolkata offers an unforgettable experience for anyone who takes our TEFL International certification course here.

Along with Mumbai, Delhi and Chennai, Kolkata is one of the four main cities in India. It was once the headquarters for the British Raj during colonial rule in India and therefore, Victorian architecture can be seen from many points in the city. It is also commonly referred to as the nation’s intellectual capital.

Kolkata offers plenty of activities for trainees during their downtime. You can take a morning stroll over Howrah Bridge—the busiest in the world, or you can tour the worldwide headquarters of the Ramakrishna Mission. As well, you can marvel at the British-built, Victoria Monument, with its complex waterways and vibrant gardens. While you’re there, you can even visit one of the largest trees in the entire world: a 200-year-old Banyan tree with its canopy spreading well over 30,000 feet and its trunk’s circumference of nearly 1,000 ft.

Combine the city’s rich history with its wonderful attractions and delectable cuisine, and you’ll conclude that you’ve made the right decision to take your tefl certification course with TEFL International in Kolkata.

    For all input and tutorial sessions at the training location, there is only one specific dress requirement: Both men and women should have a shirt covering their shoulders. The course operates from within a school so we ask you to be mindful of this, as well as being mindful of your peers and to respect the fact that you are a visitor in another country.

    During teaching practice there are specific requirements that adhere to the local dress code. All trainees are expected to dress professionally according to the following guidelines:

    Women: Shoulders should be covered, blouses with sleeves are suggested. No low-cut necklines, very short skirts or bare midriffs. Open-toed shoes are acceptable, but not hiking or flip-flop sandals.

    Men: Long pants, slacks or trousers are required, jeans are not acceptable. Short or long-sleeved shirts with a collar are necessary, although a tie is not required. Loafers or dress shoes are both fine, sandals are not acceptable. Long hair should always be tied back.

  • 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 well. We will provide all course materials for you so there is no need to bring anything else for the course itself.
