Who We Are
TEFL International’s program is headquartered in Prague 5, a scenic tram ride from the city centre. The training centre is run from Language & Training, s.r.o., a family-owned language school. In addition to our professional and passionate core trainers, our team includes experienced teachers who specialize in a variety of areas such as exam preparation, business and professionally oriented English, and young learners. This variety of backgrounds helps us cater TEFL programs to meet the interests of each student.
Our school offers access to a large collection of teaching resources, including paper, wireless internet, computers, and photocopiers. Teachers and students also have access to our comprehensive resource library, complete with course books, audio CDs/tapes, games, and other lesson materials for a range of levels.
Our career guidance counselors have first-hand knowledge of the TEFL market, both in Prague and abroad. They will help you create a TEFL CV, execute a demo lesson, and will prepare you for TEFL job interviews.
Our social coordinators tailor each TEFL program to the interests and tastes of each group. They organize the group breakfast, dinner, and walking tour on the first day of class. Other social activities during the course include concerts, pub crawls, trivia nights, museum tours, and trips to surrounding cities in the Czech Republic. Our coordinators also organize a graduation celebration at the end of the course, followed by a farewell dinner.
We provide high quality training and certification for people who want to work as teachers of English either in Prague or abroad. Our four-week TEFL/TESOL Certificate course is externally moderated by one of the most prestigious TEFL certification bodies in the world (See Course Validation for more details.). TEFL International is the only 4 week TEFL certificate fully validated through an American university (Lamar University, Texas) and the Tri-continent Degree program at Siam Technology College (Thailand). Our TEFL course is also accredited by EAQUALS, a leading international non-profit association that promotes excellence and guarantees quality teaching and training in language education across the world . Being an Eaquals accredited member, puts our program in very good company among the most prestigious language training institutions worldwide.
