TESOL Certifications in Granada | Spain

For a perfect place to take in the wonders of the past while experiencing the pleasures of the present, Granada is the ideal location to take your tesol course. It is a one-of-a-kind place where things just seem to mix. Whether it is Islam and Christianity, or the cultural history of the past and the excitement of the modern day, Granada brings everything together perfectly.

Here you will be able to see how the area’s rich heritage of culture and architectural beauty is kept alive, and how the sumptuous Spanish cuisine is prepared and served. You will also be able to enjoy the sounds of Flamenco music being played deep into the warm evening.

Wonders of this interesting civilization can be found here, including the world famous Alhambra and the Generalife. Granada is also home to one of the last fortresses to be built by the Moorish empire in western europe.

In 1492, Granada was important in the discovering of the Americas. It was here that Columbus gained the support and charter from Queen Isabella in order to explore a trade route to India; it was on this voyage he made his famous find.

The tombs of Queen Isabella and fellow Catholic monarch, King Ferdinand, can be found in the Granada Cathedral. In the shadows of this great structure, you will be able to visit The Medina, the Moroccan markets and many tetarias (tea shops), all in an intricate maze of winding alleyways.

You must also take the opportunity to visit the Sacromonte ‘gypsy barrio’, the fascinating home of the “Flamenco Puro”. Here, in intriguing cave homes, live a truly remarkable people with an unquenchable thirst for dance and music.

Geographically, Granada is remarkably located. It is situated in a valley between the mountains and the warm waters of the Mediterranean. A 45-minute trip by car will take you to the beach, while the ski resorts of the Sierra nevada, with heights of 3,400 meters, can be reached in 30 minutes. You can also travel to Malaga in around 75 minutes.

Those of you lucky enough to visit during the Pasos of Semana Santa (Easter week) will be able to experience the true essence of Andalucian spain. Costaleros carry heavy statues of Christ, saints and the Virgin Mary from their local churches through the winding streets of the city to the Cathedral. This portrays the Passion of Christ and was first enacted in medieval times. Some journeys take up to 14 hours! This and other celebrations are preserved by the The Ancient Brotherhood of the Cofradia, who take part in these processions and decorate the statues.

The food found in Granada is incredible and can not be missed. You simply have to experience the authentic Andalucian food while you are here. Simple ingredients and recipes become favorites such as Pescado Frito (fish coated in flour and sautéed in olive oil), the famous cold soup Gazpacho, Patatas Pobre (vegetable and potato hotpot), and Huevos a la Flamenca (fried egg in tomato sauce, with spicy Spanish Chorizo sausage). All these delicious meals are before we even mention the delectable Paella and the delicious treat that becomes a real social experience, tapas. This famous Andalucian tradition is the perfect way to enjoy a snack while getting to know the friendly locals.

  • What is the course schedule?

    Expand

    The first session starts on Monday at 9:00 a.m. sharp.

    You will receive a course timetable on the first day of the course. The timetable is subject to change depending on holidays and other considerations.

    Trainees must attend all sessions included on the timetable unless they are sick and require medical treatment. This is particularly important for Teaching Practice (TP) as it is very difficult to arrange alternate TP times. You will normally have roughly three hours of input for each day of the course schedule.

    Teaching practice is usually held in the evenings and each lesson lasts for 60 minutes. Trainees either team-teach or observe these classes. When teaching, trainees are observed by qualified staff; feedback is given after each class, usually on the following day.

  • What can I expect during teaching practice?

    Expand

    Lessons are delivered to students aged 16 years and older. The vast majority of students are Spanish but other nationalities do attend some classes. Class size varies from one-to-one lessons up to 16 students. 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 receive the aid of your course trainer throughout lesson planning and receive 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

    We average 24 trainees on each course. The majority of trainees are British or American, while many others come from Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Ireland, South Africa and the Philippines. Occasionally, we do get fluent non-native English speakers from Western Europe, Scandinavia, India, China, Thailand, etc. Trainees must be 18 years of age or older and the age range varies greatly depending on the course.

  • Is there a dress code?

    Expand

    During trainees’ lessons, casual attire is allowed. There are specific dress requirements that adhere to the local Spanish culture and basic ideas of professionalism. All trainees are expected to dress ‘casually smart’. Visible tattoos and piercings are not acceptable. ‘Office standard’ hairstyles and coloring are also required.

  • What should I bring for course studies?

    Expand

    Please be sure to arrive on the first day of the course with a notebook and a pen. You may also want to bring a recording device, a digital Dictaphone or a smart phone would be ideal. We encourage you to bring a laptop as we have Wi-Fi at the training center. It is also a good idea to bring a thumb drive (data stick). We will provide all course materials for you so there is no need to bring anything else for the course itself.
