Our TEFL course in Rome provides so much more than just a teaching certificate. For thousands of years, Rome has served as the epicenter of culture and history for Italy, Europe and the whole of Western civilization. Attending a TEFL course here is a once in a lifetime opportunity to experience Italy’s capital and enjoy a well-rounded cultural experience that no passing tourist could ever imagine.
One of the symbols of Rome is its Colosseum, the largest amphitheater ever built in the Roman Empire and originally used for gladiatorial combat. The city is also home to a wide range of important monuments such as the Roman Forum, the Pantheon, the Catacombs of Rome, the Circus Maximus, the Bocca della Verita and countless more.
During your free time, you can witness all of Rome’s beauty and we will do everything possible to make sure you are able to make the most of your time here. While the city itself is very large, the historical center is compact and easily accessible so a walking tour of the city’s major historic and cultural sites is possible in one day.
At a distance of only twelve miles from the coast, Rome is perfectly situated to combine the hustle and bustle of a major city with the calm and beauty of the Mediterranean’s beaches’ a great way to unwind in your spare time when you are teaching English in Italy. Because Italy has one of the highest demands for TEFL teachers in Western Europe, Rome is a great location for taking your TEFL course.
The ITTT training centre in Rome is located in a pleasant, modern building with comfortable classrooms. The school is fully equipped with internet, TV and video facilities, whiteboards and a wide range of teaching resource materials.
The school building is conveniently situated in close proximity to the Vatican and a subway/metro line which provides easy access to all other areas of historic Rome. In the immediate vicinity of the school, there is a wide choice of restaurants, cafes, bars, internet cafes, and shops.
The school’s internet is available for use by the students at all times and phone and fax facilities can also be used with prior approval from the School Manager.
Optional extra: Italian Language Courses in Rome
This is an optional extra to the TEFL course and cannot be taken as a stand-alone course. Every program starts with 4 weeks of intensive Italian language training in small groups with students from around the world. This is a fully accredited course and is provided by one of the top Italian language schools in Italy. The school is recognized by the Italian Ministry of Education and has been offering high-quality Italian tuition for many years. Though many of the students who attend this course are from the US and Western Europe, students can be from a wide range of other countries, which helps to provide you with a stimulating multicultural experience.
Italian training is available for all ability levels and your Italian skills will be assessed before starting your course to ensure that you are placed at the level most appropriate to your language abilities. It may also be possible to extend the period of your Italian course beyond the 4 weeks but that should be discussed and agreed with our staff prior to the commencement of the course.
