One of the most cosmopolitan countries in the world, Singapore is a fascinating place to live and work. Located at the tip of the Malay Peninsula, the world’s only island city-state was once known as the “Jewel of the British Empire” and is steeped in a British colonial history that can be seen in the monuments and architecture of the city. There are four official languages in Singapore: English, which is the language of government and instruction, Malay, Mandarin and Tamil. Singapore is accessible via direct flights from hundreds of locations as well as a variety of ports by ferry from various parts of Asia. Singapore’s excellent public transport network makes getting around and seeing all it has to offer easy. Buses, taxis and trains run around the city and there are numerous tours available as well as tourist passes to help you explore. Although it is a bustling city with buildings extending as far as the eye can see, do not be surprised to see impressive greenery and national parks throughout the island.
Sentosa Island is one of the major tourist attractions in the city and is home to Resorts World, Universal Studios and Madame Tussauds. Other attractions include Clarke Quay, Boat Quay and Arab Street where you can find restaurants, bars and more. Orchard Road is a premium shopping destination for visitors from all over the region. To escape the hustle and bustle of city life, you can hire a bicycle at one of the local parks or take a trip to the islands of Ubin and Kusu where you can enjoy pristine beaches and nature.
Our TEFL training center in Singapore is ideally located in the heart of the city in the middle of the Central Business District with spectacular views of Marina Bay.

What is the course schedule?Expand
Orientation will be held on the first day of the course and will be followed by the first class on Monday morning at 9:30 am. During the orientation, you will receive a detailed schedule. Sessions typically run between 9:30 and 4:30 pm Monday to Friday with morning and late afternoon breaks, and a lunch break also included. However, there will also be some evenings required for teaching practice.
All teacher trainees are expected to attend all of the training sessions on the schedule unless a medical condition or emergency makes it impossible in which case medical treatment is required. It is extremely important for trainees to be present at every Teaching Practice (TP). These sessions are difficult to organize and rescheduling is difficult which may result in an additional fee for the trainee.
What can I expect during teaching practice?Expand
Your practical teaching sessions are conducted at the school with Japanese and Korean students. These students are usually non-native speaking expats living in Singapore who make the lessons engaging, enjoyable and consistently give constructive feedback. Most of the students have studied at our centre with trained and experienced EFL teachers. They are not required to come to the class so their presence is merely out of the desire to help the trainees to improve their teaching.
Who can attend the TEFL course? Do I need to be native English speaker?Expand
You need to be at least 18 years old to enrol in our course. There is no maximum age, but do keep in mind that some institutions may not employ teachers beyond a certain age.
While you don’t need to be a native speaker to attend, you do need to be fluent in English.
We define fluency as having at least a C1 level on the CEFR scale of language proficiency.
Is there a dress code?Expand
For most sessions at the school, there will not be a strict dress code requirement. However, the school is full of educators and professionals and we want to maintain a level of professionalism thus please dress appropriately and be mindful of others. The school is a place of work, and we would like to remind you to be respectful to those around you.
There will be a dress requirement during the Teaching Practice (TP) sessions. During the Teaching Practice the trainees will be required to dress in business attire and follow some guidelines.
Shoulders must be covered. Low-cut necklines or short skirts will not be permitted. No low-cut necklines or very short skirts. Flip flops, bermuda’s, or sandals are also not permitted.
Slacks or khakis must be worn, jeans are not appropriate. Either short or long sleeved shirts are acceptable so long as there is a collar. A tie is not required but if you would like to, you may. Dress shoes or loafers are required. Tennis shoes, sandals, or bermuda’s, are not acceptable. Long hair should be tied back.
What should I bring for course studies?Expand
A pen, a notebook for taking notes, and a three-ring binder to organize lesson plans are essential. Forms, and other information will be given and an organized binder would help all of this remain neat and tidy.
A recording device, or cell phone to record, is not required but it is a good idea. In the past trainees at various locations have given feedback that it made the course easier. This helped in reviewing the course material, lectures, interviews, and student feedback. Although it is not a requirement we suggest doing so.
Books are provided and available to be borrowed at the school, and in the study room. However, any material leaving the campus requires permission from the staff.
All trainees are required to prepare their own materials for their Teaching Practice (TP). The training school maintains a supply of materials but the school is not responsible to provide materials. Materials such as poster board, markers, glue, paper, pens, and more for developing teaching material will have to be purchased by the trainees themselves.
The photocopy machine at the school is available for all trainees to use without charge.
What documents do I need for finding employment after the course?Expand
Your passport. However, if you are able to secure a job in Singapore or another country, you will need original copies of your birth certificate, college degree(s), and any other certificates or diplomas you feel may be relevant, along with relevant transcripts.
