The aim of the 4 Week TEFL course in Granada, Nicaragua is to thoroughly prepare you for teaching EFL in any overseas environment. You will be able to prepare lessons for all age groups and levels and feel confident when selecting materials and activities. Students will also get real hands on experience, designing and teaching their own English classes to the local community.
We are passionate about enriching the local community. Many of our English classes are offered for free. We also have a scholarship program for some of the most impoverished people of Granada. We are constantly investing into this scheme and its funding is aided through the TEFL programs.
Our school is perfectly setup to offer an incredible learning experience. It is located in a beautiful, colonial style house, built around two open gardens; creating a very fresh and airy space.
As part of our service to our TEFL students we will help organise accommodation, meals and offer Spanish lessons as part of the course. This way you will truly experience what it is like to learn a foreign language and be able to empathise with your own students. We aim to provide a holistic learning experience beyond just teaching a methodology.
Our commitment to our students does not stop after graduation; we will be on hand to help you put together a CV, introduce you to local employers and practice interviews with you. We enjoy and encourage staying in touch with all of our graduates and are always available to offer advice if it’s needed.
Most of our students choose to live with a host family during their course because everything is taken care of for them; allowing them to fully focus on the course. This includes three meals a day. It’s also a very good way to either improve your Spanish or create a good foundation on which to build. All rooms are private, clean and quiet, providing a comfortable stay for all our students. The host families that we work with all have years of experience hosting people from other countries. They are very flexible, adaptable and accommodating. The cost of this is $100 per week.
We also offer accommodation to our students in the same building as the school and living with some of the teachers. It’s a beautiful, old colonial style house with two gardens, study areas and TV room. Rooms are private with a shared bathroom between 2 and have AC as an extra option; breakfast is also included. We have found that students who take this option add a certain, extra value to the course in the way of ‘comradery’ with their fellow students. The cost of this is $85 per week.
We will help arrange all of the above before your arrival.
You will receive two certificates. 1 from INTESOL Nicaragua and the other from ALAP our accrediting body.
