Salt Lake City is a big city with plenty of small mountain town charm. Located at the southern end of the Great Salt Lake, it is the capital of the state of Utah and famously hosted the 2002 Winter Olympic Games. The Olympics brought increased investment in the city’s infrastructure and it has continued to develop into a thriving multicultural urban center in the heart of some of the most beautiful scenery in the country. With countless attractions and activities and a warm friendly local population, Salt Lake City is the ideal place to take a TEFL/TESOL teacher training course.
Salt Lake City was originally settled by Mormons in the middle of the 19th century. The city then grew with the influx of religious converts and those looking to get rich from gold mining. The arrival of the railroad in the latter half of the 19th century brought with it mass migration of various groups and the population of Salt Lake swelled further. The population of the city has diversified immensely since the early days of its founding by the Mormons and it is now an increasingly popular place to live, work and visit.
Salt Lake City is the ideal base for exploring the wider region and is known as the ‘Crossroads of the West’ due to its location in the middle of the western United States.
