TESOL Certifications in Corinth | Greece

The ancient city of Corinth is home to our Greek TESOL international training facility. Here we can offer an internationally recognized certificate for successful students, which is for 120 hours over a four week course with 10 hours of teaching practice. Our course is run by fully qualified, experienced trainers in an environment conducive to successful learning. Your course fees will cover the course, all materials required to plan and produce your lessons, accommodation and a ‘meet and greet’ at Corinth railway station. Once you have successfully completed the course, we will offer assistance in gaining employment.

Known as the gateway of the Peloponnese, Corinth is the second largest city in the Peloponnese region and is situated 50 miles from the Greek capital, Athens. Typically for greece, Corinth is seeped in ancient mythology and history and has numerous sites of interest for any visitor. These include the ancient fortress of Acrocorinth and the Temples of Apollo and Aphrodite. Corinth and the surrounding area are typically Greek and you will have the opportunity to sample their authentic way of life.

Corinth, it can be said, is a city of contrasts. The ‘ancient’ Corinth was one of the main powers of ancient Greece, large and wealthy. Today remnants of this time can be seen in the famous ruins, archeological sites and museums. There is also however a modern side to Corinth, and all the requirements, facilities and entertainment you may need will be provided for. All this combines to makes Corinth a fantastic location for your tesol course.

Some other points of interest, or must see locations if we are being honest, can be found in Corinth. St Paul wrote his two letters to the Corinthians from here and his tribune from which he spoke can be seen, as well as the St Paul’s Metropolitan Church.

The Acrocorinth is a dominating fortress structure, 575 m high, with walls spanning a total of 2000m in length. This fortress was developed and built upon throughout the Byznatine, Roman, Turkish and Ventian eras.

The Corinth Canal was started in 67AD. Amazingly it wasn’t fully completed until 1893! The maritime short cut traces a line straight across the Isthmus of Corinth and links the Corinthian and Saronic Gulfs. The Canal is a 6,343m gorge and has walls 90m tall.

    Expand white line

    Teaching practice takes place in the afternoon, generally between five and eight o’clock. The majority of our teaching practice is with young teenagers at a small private school near Vrahati. At certain times of the year we also have additional practice at the training center.

    Each trainee usually teaches once per day to make up the total of ten hours during the course. Trainers provide extensive help with planning each lesson and give written feedback which forms the basis of the feedback discussion after each lesson.

    Lessons are based upon real teaching resources found all over the world and you will have the chance to create your own materials as well. You will also receive the aid of your course trainer throughout lesson planning and receive immediate feedback on your lesson after it’s been delivered. Practicum is assessed and a satisfactory assessment is required to earn your TEFL/TESOL certificate.

  • Who usually attends the course?

    Expand white line

    The maximum class size in Corinth is 16. Most of the participants are American, British, Canadian or Australian, 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

    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?

    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.
