  • Any Questions?

    We've tried to think of everything and answered the most popular questions asked

    How big is a Class?

    Class sizes are a maximum of 12 students. This is then broken down into two groups during teaching practices; each group having their own trainer.

    What are the course dates & availability?

    We recommend enrolling at least 90 days prior to your course start date. This is a very popular course and often fills in advance.

    How long is the course?

    Level 5 onsite - 4 weeks full-time.

    Level 4 hybrid - 4 weeks to 6 months online training + 2 weeks onsite teaching practices.

    Where is the school based?

    Our school is located in Granada, Nicaragua. Just minutes away from the famous Cathedral, in a beautiful colonial home with outdoor study spaces, overlooking two picturesque courtyards.

    Do I need textbooks?

    During the course we will provide you with all the necessary resources at no extra cost. After the course you are welcome to purchase our textbooks at a reasonable price.

    What happens when I arrive?

    Our team will be here to meet you. We'll give you a tour of the city and make sure you're well settled before starting the course. Depending on how early you arrive we'll usually organise some activities for all the new TEFL students to meet each other.

    What Job opportunities are available once I finish?

    The tourist industry in Nicaragua is rapidly growing, and with it the demand to learn English. This is great news for all the budding English teachers out there. Our graduates have been able to walk into a teaching position on the first day after graduating!

    Is it safe to stay in Nicaragua?

    Travellers are often surprised to learn that the United Nations ranks Nicaragua as one of the safest countries in Latin America, even safer than a lot of US states. Common sense precautions should always be taken, as in any country in the World.

    Course Syllabus for Onsite & Hybrid Programs

    This will normally consist of input sessions in the morning and early afternoon followed by teaching practices where you will also observe other trainees teaching. This will allow you to learn from your peers. After teaching practice a critique session is held where both trainees and trainer sit together, exchange feedback and reflect on the different lessons they observed. The onus is on reflection as we believe this to be the most important component of the TEFL course. What really matters, even more than a good performance in the classroom, is for you to be able to reflect on your own and others’ teaching experience and learn from it for your future development.
