TEFL in England
July 2-13, 2018
Destination TEFL in England
In London, the community of ESL learners is growing by the day. Though you’ll find it easy to make conversation with our British neighbors, the students you’ll interact with don’t yet have that luxury. Your two weeks here will be spent getting them closer to that ultimate goal. It’s a rewarding extension of your TEFL course, only made better by the free time you’ll have to explore a city both rich in history and teeming with innovation.
From Big Ben to Buckingham Palace, and The Shard to the Fountains of Granary Square -- There’s a world of experiences. Why wait?
