St.Petersburg TEFL Course Information

Training Center

Our St. Petersburg TEFL courses are run in cooperation with our Partner School - the biggest and most popular language school in the city. The St Petersburg centre is located in the heart of the city, near the Winter Palace Square and the Hermitage. A great variety of cultural, shopping and entertainment facilities are at hand.

The 4-Week TEFL Course

Our 4-week TEFL course is fully accredited and certified to meet international standards. The training involves up to 6 hours of observed teaching practice and 120 hours of classroom instruction. You will acquire all the practical skills you will need to teach English as a foreign language in any country around the world. Classes run Monday to Friday, 9-4pm. Weekends are free to explore the local area but you will have homework assignments.

Survival Russian Lessons are also provided as part of the package, as well as airport greeting and transfer, all course materials and a social program.

Accommodation

The training centre staff are able to provide accommodation for teacher trainees at a very low price at the School Hostel. This will typically consist of a 3 room apartment shared with 2 or 3 other trainees.Whilst it should be stated that the standards of accommodation are considerably more basic than those found in Western Europe & Northern America, apartments are always clean and spacious and conveniently located near the metro. Alternatively, you could be placed with a Russian family (single room with breakfast for the same price).

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

We have extensive contacts with numerous schools in the country and language organizations and offices all around the world. Many schools contact us regularly with advanced notice as to teaching positions because they know the quality of our training and teacher preparation. Job Fairs are held throughout the year, too, to connect our graduates to employers and schools. You will not have any problems finding a suitable teaching job in Italy or overseas.

Conditions of Work

There are no shortage of TEFL jobs in Russia. Native English teachers are highly sought after in Moscow and St Petersburg. Many young Russians are desperate to learn English to a high standard. It offers them the opportunity to build a career with a large corporation, work in the booming tourist and oil industries, or simply start a new life abroad. However, the state education system can leave a lot to be desired and most motivated Russians will turn to private English language schools for help. The language schools of the big cities tend to have regular vacancies for TEFL teachers.

St. Petersburg - Beauty & Culture

Introduction

St Petersburg is quite rightly known throughout the world for its beauty and culture. So unlike the Russian cities that came before it, with its strict geometric lines and an elegance reminiscent of Europe's most alluring capitals, St. Petersburg is in many ways Russia's adopted child: too European to be Russian, and yet too Russian to be European. A powerful combination of both East and West, St. Petersburg is, more than anything, a city born of the passion of its founder,Czar Peter the Great

Testimonials

"I'm glad I have chosen you as the avenue for this as the course package is obviously thorough, well structured and professional. There is a welcome depth of experience evident and considerable support for course attendees. I was particularly drawn to the chance to take part in some formal Thai language lessons and to take part in hands- on teaching practice- so much more relevant than a course conducted in cyberspace!"
