Gran Canaria is simply the best place to earn a TESOL certificate if you’re looking for beautiful beaches, awe inspiring scenery and a high-quality TESOL course. Gran Canaria is part of the Canary Islands located just 62 miles from the coast of Morocco.
Gran Canaria has so much to offer visitors that you will never find yourself wanting for something to do. The island’s beaches are of course a major attraction and you can find plenty to entertain yourself here surfing, body boarding or simply chilling out and sunbathing. Windsurfing is popular at Pozo Izquierdo where the world cup is held every year while the hundreds of dive sites allow you to experience unique life under the waves. Other ways to relax on your time off from earning your TESOL certificate include exploring the sand dunes by camel or beach buggy.
Avid golfers will be happy to make use of the many championship golf courses that call the island home. Nature lovers can explore the rainforest or relax beside one of the beautiful lakes found in the island’s mountain ranges. From these ranges you can witness some fantastic panoramas which have been compared to the Rocky Mountains or the Grand Canyon.
This island is also a haven for amateur astronomers due to its atmospheric conditions, which are perfect for star gazing. Gran Canaria was also the site of a NASA receiving station during the moon landings and was the first to receive Neil Armstrong’s historic message “That´s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind”.
Our TESOL training centre is located in Vecindario on the south-east Coast of the island. Vecindario is the second largest town in Gran Canaria and is the perfect location for you to study for your TESOL certificate. Just ten minutes away from Las Palmas and ten minutes away from the most popular tourist areas, we are well situated for you to make the most of what the island has to offer. The windsurfing beach of Pozo Izquierdo is just a quick two minute drive away and the diving cenre of Arinaga is only a five minute drive away.
