The historical city of Granada is a magical location to take a TEFL certification course. Granada is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and home to Spain’s most visited attraction, the Alhambra Palace. It is the former capital of Moorish Spain and this is evident in the many palaces, churches, monuments and ancient dwellings that are still home to many of the city’s inhabitants. Today, the city retains much of its ancient charm and is set in a delightfully well-situated location. It is also a popular university town with a vibrant nightlife, as well as plenty of interesting restaurants, cafes, bars, theatres, and clubs.
Geographically, Granada is unique as it lies between the Sierra Nevada Mountains and the Costa del Sol, within the magical region of Andalucía. You will never be without things to see or do here and opportunities abound for skiing or trekking in the mountains and for soaking up the sun on the nearby coastline. Granada itself has so much to offer that you may need to stay here for some time in order to experience it all.
Food has always played an important role in traditional Spanish culture and this is still true today. Traditional favorites such as gazpacho, tapas, chorizo and paella, all washed down with locally produced wine, are still popular with locals and visitors alike. When you consider all the outstanding features that the city of Granada has to offer, it is no surprise that it has become a prime location for TEFL courses in Spain.
Our TEFL courses in Granada are delivered in a traditional Carmen style building located in the Albayzin, the whitewashed, ancient Arabic quarter which is a traffic free zone made up of plazas, fountains and narrow cobbled streets. The Albayzin faces the Alhambra Palace and is, justifiably so, a UNESCO World Heritage Site in its own right.
The historic setting for your TEFL certification course in Granada is characterized by traditional Moorish style houses known as Carmens. These magnificent constructions epitomize all that is Andalucía, with white-walled buildings hiding cool interior patios, water features and hidden gardens, all surrounded by ancient Moorish architecture.
The actual TEFL training center has a magnificent garden, numerous classrooms, a computer room, Wi-Fi, a coffee shop, and all the facilities necessary to successfully complete your TEFL course.
You are never too far from anything in Granada and the TEFL training center is conveniently located in the city. You will only need a ten-minute walk to reach the city center; however, as the Albayzin is located on a hillside, you can expect the walk back to take a little longer. Should you feel less energetic, then buses run regular trips into town, and of course back again.
