Join our 4-week TEFL in-class course in Shanghai and become a TEFL/TESOL certified teacher of English as a foreign language.

Our training center in the Czech Republic provides the ideal location to earn your TEFL certification in magnificent Prague. This modern capital city offers an incredible opportunity to work and live surrounded by rich heritage and culture.

Our TEFL certification course in eastern China is located in downtown Shanghai, the Paris of the East. It is the largest, most prosperous and populous city in China. Shanghai is a popular tourist destination renowned for its historical landmarks such as The Bund, City God Temple, and Yu Garden as well as the extensive Lujiazui skyline and major museums including the Shanghai Museum and the China Art Museum. It has been described as the “showpiece” of the booming economy of mainland China.

Shanghai has a rich collection of buildings and structures of various architectural styles. The Bund, located on the bank of the Huangpu River, contains a rich collection of early 20th-century architecture, ranging in style from neoclassical HSBC Building to the art deco Sassoon House. A number of areas in the former foreign concessions are also well-preserved, the most notable ones being the French Concession. Shanghai has one of the world’s largest number of Art Deco buildings as a result of the construction boom during the 1920s and 1930s.

In recent years, a large number of architecturally distinctive and even eccentric buildings have sprung up throughout Shanghai. Notable examples of contemporary architecture include the Shanghai Museum, Shanghai Grand Theatre in the People’s Square precinct and Shanghai Oriental Art Center. Despite rampant redevelopment, the old city still retains some buildings of a traditional style, such as the Yuyuan Garden, an elaborate traditional garden.

In addition to its unique architecture, Shanghai is home to some of the best restaurants, shopping and nightlife in all of Asia and arguably the world. Whether you want to eat out for $2 or $200, all options are possible in Shanghai.

Our accommodation is located within walking distance of the hottest clubs in the city and a variety of shopping and fine (and affordable) dining hotspots. The center is a short subway ride away, and all major tourist attractions are within a distance of seven subway stops. TEFL course participants are welcome to find their own housing and we’d be happy to offer assistance.

Our TEFL training center in Shanghai is located in downtown Shanghai (Jing’an district). With a population of more than 23 million, Shanghai is the largest and traditionally the most developed metropolis in Mainland China. In the 1930’s, Shanghai was the largest and most prosperous city in the Far East and it has worked hard over the past twenty years to regain that reputation.

Shanghai is a fascinating mix of East and West. It has historic shikumen houses that blend the styles of Chinese houses with European design flair, and it has one of the richest collections of Art Deco buildings in the world. There’s a very unique feel to Shanghai as there were so many concessions (designated districts) to Western powers during the turn of the 20th century. There are distinctly Chinese neighborhoods, but also European style districts from classic Parisian style, to Tudor style buildings that give an English flair and 1930s buildings reminiscent of New York or Chicago.

Accommodation is located within walking distance of the hottest clubs in the city and a variety of shopping and fine (and affordable) dining restaurants. The center is a short subway ride away, and all major tourist attractions are within a distance of 7 subway stops.

Shanghai offers:

  • An exceptional range of outdoor and cultural activities.
  • Free wireless internet service inside both the classroom and the accommodation.
  • The best nightlife in China.
  • The opportunity to study Chinese at an affordable rate.
  • Course orientation, welcome meal and graduation party.
  • Convenient weekend trips.
  • Friendly, welcoming local people who are keen to meet and learn from foreign teachers.
