"I thoroughly enjoyed my time earning my TEFL certificate and have met some fantastic people who I hope to keep in touch with for the rest of my life. The staff in Jane, Damian, Michaella, Cello and the others were fantastic people who deserve all the credit for being so patient, helpful and fun to be around. I can honestly say, hand on heart, the only thing that could have been improved is that it could have lasted longer so I could have savoured and enjoyed the experience for just one more week...Thank you all so, so much"

Housing assistance is available either in shared housing, independent living, in local hotels/hostels or with local families. Once your place has been confirmed on the TEFL course we can assist you with booking your accommodation.

Getting Here and Visas

Airport pickup and transfer is included in the Advanced package. We recommend you arrive in the country at least 2 days prior to the course start date. Non EU students should arrive on a tourist or Schengen visa.

Prospects for Teachers

There are numerous job opportunities throughout Greece (with nearly 100 language schools here in Hania) the cost of living is very low and the pace of life relaxingly slow.  Weekends are free except for the course project. During the second weekend of the course we arrange an (optional) excursion down the Samaria Gorge.

“I truly had a blast during the [TEFL] course! There was a good, solid mix of in-class instruction, preparing for lessons, actual teaching, discussion, and of course FUN! I met wonderful people. Although the course was intense, the laid-back atmosphere provided a relaxed, enjoyable environment in which to learn. I don't really want to leave!”
- Jen Hand, USA

"I don't have anything but positive feedback for my experience with the course and my work done at King's [Job Placement]. I thought the TEFL Training was excellent. And I think the way King's has taken us in, trained us, and provided superb life support has been brilliant. Thank you very much"
