Attending our course in Rome is a once in a lifetime opportunity to absorb the capital city in a way that an average tourist could only envy.
TEFL Course Rome
‘The Eternal City’ as it’s known, is breathtaking. You can inundate your senses with leisurely strolls down cobblestone streets or by sitting in one of Italy’s famous piazzas (city squares), from the thrill of touring sites that have witnessed a turbulent past to a simple afternoon spent relaxing with a cooling portion of gelato (Italian ice cream), you’ll love Rome.
Rome is Italy’s capital, as well as the country’s largest and most populous city. It’s cosmopolitan as well as modern. It’s one of the few cities that escaped the bombing raids of WWII, so centuries-old buildings and architecture remain unscathed. It has retained its Renaissance and baroque character as well. The city center of Rome is rightfully listed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.
Rome houses the Coliseum, the largest amphitheater built during the Roman Empire. It is also home to countless rare monuments including the Pantheon, the Catacombs of Rome, the Circus Maximus, as well as the Bocca della Verita and much, much more.
Rome hosts many festivals as well. Exhibitions, concerts and other shows take place throughout the year and themes include everything from fashion and modern art to theater, music and dance from all over Europe.

Rome is on the West coast--midway between Italy’s northern and southern borders. While the city is large, the historic center in compact and very tourist-friendly.

Optional extra: Italian Language Courses in Rome
An additional course is also available to trainees who wish to study Italian langauge. It is exclusive to TEFL International trainees and cannot be taken as a course on its own. Each course starts with four intensive weeks of Italian language learning. Classes are conducted in small groups and students are from around the world.
The course is fully accredited and facilitated by one of the most acclaimed language schools in Italy. It’s been running for quite some time now and is recognized by Italy’s Ministry of Education. In addition to learning Italian, you’ll learn an appreciation for that it’s like to be a student in one of your English classes as well as provide you with a wonderfully multicultural learning experience.
We offer classes for abilities of all levels and language skills will be assessed before you start the course. This will ensure you’re placed in the most appropriate class based upon your language ability. You can also extend your course but this should be arranged prior to the start of the course itself.
Together with your ESL certificate course, your program will be eight weeks long and offers a perfect opportunity to immerse yourself in Italian culture while living in one of the most historically significant cities in the entire world. First you’ll start with the langue classes and then move onto the TEFL certificate course.
