What can I expect during teaching practice?Expand
Teaching practice takes place in the afternoon, generally between five and eight o’clock. The majority of our teaching practice is with young teenagers at a small private school near Vrahati. At certain times of the year we also have additional practice at the training center.
Each trainee usually teaches once per day to make up the total of ten hours during the course. Trainers provide extensive help with planning each lesson and give written feedback which forms the basis of the feedback discussion after each lesson.
Lessons are based upon real teaching resources found all over the world and you will have the chance to create your own materials as well. You will also receive the aid of your course trainer throughout lesson planning and receive immediate feedback on your lesson after it’s been delivered. Practicum is assessed and a satisfactory assessment is required to earn your TEFL/TESOL certificate.

The maximum class size in Corinth is 16. Most of the participants are American, British, Canadian or Australian, although we do accept non-native speakers of English who have a high proficiency in the language.
Is there a dress code?Expand
For all input and tutorial sessions at the training location, there is only one specific dress requirement: Both men and women should have a shirt covering their shoulders. The course operates from within a school so we ask you to be mindful of this, as well as being mindful of your peers and to respect the fact that you are a visitor in another country.
During teaching practice there are specific requirements that adhere to the local dress code. All trainees are expected to dress professionally according to the following guidelines:
Women: Shoulders should be covered, blouses with sleeves are suggested. No low-cut necklines, very short skirts or bare midriffs. Open-toed shoes are acceptable, but not hiking or flip-flop sandals.
