TESOL Certifications in Sydney | Australia

Our Australian TESOL training facility is based in the lively metropolis of Sydney, home to 4.5 million people. Sydney has become one of the most vibrant, popular cities in the entire southern hemisphere, and looking at some of its landmarks and monuments, it is easy to see why. The iconic Sydney harbor bridge is joined by the world-famous Opera House and by the old fashioned, historic area of The Rocks. A short walk into the city centre will also bring you past the stylish Sydney tower, with its breathtaking rooftop walks, and to the beautiful Darling Harbor. These are just the tip of the iceberg in a city that has so many things to do and see. The urban area of Sydney’s centre is in contrast to the number of stunning beaches and national parks that surround it. The clean air and brilliantly blue sky above makes it easy to understand why Sydney attracts 10 million tourists each year.

Perhaps the most world-renowned beach in Sydney is Bondi Beach, which has a huge collection of shops, international restaurants, scenic views and bars. Bondi is hugely popular with tourists from all over the world, so it is the perfect place to come for an international experience with a real Aussie flavor. Alternatively you can take the short ferry across to Manly Beach, with its frequent sighting of whales and dolphins, or head to the beautiful Cronulla or Balmoral beaches, popular with the locals.

Animal lovers can visit Taronga Zoo and Sydney Wildlife World to see a whole host of species living contentedly in a happy environment. Visitors who appreciate their culture are also well provided for with a number of museums covering the broad areas of art and history to science and discovery. Highlights include The National Art Gallery and Australian Museum, which will both take a lengthy trip to fully appreciate. Sydney also has many buildings and areas of historical interest. 18th and 19th century buildings can be seen throughout the city, the most memorable being perhaps the Queen Victoria Building, which was completed in 1898. Nowadays it is home to a number of shops and cafes spread over several floors. The old-world style is a very refreshing and welcome retreat from the hustle and bustle of city life. If this relaxed, old-fashioned style is to your taste, you should discover the area know as The Rocks. Some of the bars and shops here are reminiscent of 200 years ago, making this quaint little area a must see.

Throughout the year, Sydney hosts a number of colorful, multi cultural festivals. It seems that not a month passes without a festival taking place, from Chinese New Year to the Royal Easter show; there is always something to see. The most popular event of the year takes place in February in the form of The Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras Festival and Parade. This attracts over half a million people on the day of the festival, so be sure to book accommodation well in advance!

Sydney really is a multicultural place. Ethnic diversity all over the city adds to its vibrancy and intrigue. Nearly every nation on the planet seems to be represented here, from the areas reminiscent of London and Tokyo to Shanghai Town in Ashfield and Little Italy in Leichhardt. There are also neighborhoods with Korean and Spanish influences amongst many more.

Sydney’s nightlife is an experience you won’t want to miss! It has hundreds of options within the same area, all guaranteed to provide a good time. There are an abundance of bars, restaurants and nightspots, many of which remain open 24 hours! You can crawl the bars and try to keep up with the legendary Aussie drinking, enter a pool competition, or just relax with a quiet beer in a Bavarian style bar. Whatever it is you are after, it will be near by.

Transport options in Sydney make it extremely easy to get around. The train network is quick, cheap and connects the entire city, with new stations and lines being added all the time. If the train system isn’t for you, there is also a reliable bus service available. Special bus tickets are available that can also be used for the ferry trips from the Circular Quay to Manly Bay. You may also want to rent a car, as driving through the city is very easy. There is also no feeling like driving across the Harbor Bridge and taking in the panoramic views.

    Expand white line

    Course deposits must be paid to our administrative center. Credit/debit card payments are the fastest and cheapest way to pay, but we also accept payments via Western Union, Pay Pal and bank transfer. While there are no deadlines for a deposit, courses can fill up quickly and your seat will only be reserved after the deposit has been paid.

    Once you make your deposit, you will receive an email with an informational packet that provides detailed information about the course and Sydney itself.

    The balance of the course fee is payable online before the course (credit/debit card, Pay Pal). We also accept cash payments on the first day of the course.

    Course fees are all-inclusive so you won’t be asked to pay additional costs for course related materials or services. This also includes course moderation, accreditation fees and lifetime job assistance.

  • What are my accommodation options?

    Expand white line

    We have partnered with a hostel in the neighborhood that will provide trainees with the most affordable accommodation available (AU$ 2,200 for 4 weeks). Other options are also available and we are happy to provide you with the details of these. If you would like to book accommodation directly through us, please note that you will be charged a service fee.

  • What travel documents will I need for australia?

    Expand white line

    This information is specific to your country of origin. For the most accurate and current information regarding travel documents for Australia, please contact your nearest consulate. There is also a very good chance that all the information you require (application documents, application fees, duration of processing documents), is available on the embassy’s webpage.

  • What is the course schedule?

    Expand white line

    From Monday to Friday, there are input sessions every morning from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. when trainees learn classroom management, grammar, language and culture and other practical aspects of the course. The lunch break is from 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. In the afternoon, trainees prepare their lessons with assistance from their trainer. They may either be teaching their lessons to international students in a classroom situation or be involved in one of the other unique and exciting aspects of our course, such as observing teachers, getting advice on starting your own tutoring business, learning about IELTS or teaching private students. These lessons are followed by feedback from the trainer. We aim to provide six to ten hours of observed teaching practice over the 4-week course. On three of the Fridays from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. there is a special language acquisition module where you learn a foreign language so that you can understand what it is like for a non-native speaker to learn English.

  • What can I expect during teaching practice?

    Expand white line

    We use international students for the trainees’ classroom teaching practice. These students are very keen and enthusiastic and because we only charge a nominal fee for them to attend, all students come to classes purely because they want to! We also use international students for the private tuition sessions. The private students do not pay for these one hour lessons so they are very excited to be part of it!

  • Who usually attends the course?

    Expand white line

    On average we have around six trainees enrolled on each course, although this number does vary throughout the year. Most of our participants are from English speaking countries such as America, The United Kingdom, Canada or Australia, although we do accept non-native speakers of English who have a high proficiency in the language.

  • Is there a dress code?

    Expand white line

    Please check the weather for the time of year that you are staying with us as it can vary considerably. Australians generally wear layers as the weather can change from hour to hour.

    Input Sessions and Lesson Planning:

    Attire is casual and relaxed. While there is air conditioning available, please dress comfortably.

    Practice Teaching Sessions at the Training Centre:

    Attire is smart and conservative. Your shoulders must be covered and skirts or trousers must cover your knees when you are sitting down. For women, be careful that your shirts are not too low cut or show your stomach as you may need to lean over to help a student sitting at a desk. Jeans and shorts are not acceptable. Shoes or sandals should be smart in appearance.

  • What should I bring for course studies?

    Expand white line

    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 we have Wi-Fi at the training center. We will provide all course materials for you so there is no need to bring anything else for the course itself.
