Founded over 2000 years ago by Alexander the Great, the magnificent city of Alexandria is now the largest on the Mediterranean coast and one of Egypt’s most popular tourist destinations. The city’s mix of ancient history, a fascinating culture, beautiful beaches and progressive, modern development draws visitors from all over the world. Alexandria is also an important educational center, with dozens of English language schools spread throughout the city. The large numbers of post-course job opportunities these schools provide, as well as the city’s exotic character, make Alexandria a truly exciting venue for completing your TEFL certification course.
In addition to our high quality, professional training, you will also receive the benefit of our local knowledge to ensure that you make the most of your time in the city. We offer free tours of the local attractions, as well as sound advice on visiting the country’s world famous cultural sites. Egypt’s major attractions such as the Pyramids of Giza and the Great Sphinx can easily be explored during your free weekends, whilst the Valley of Kings and the vast temple complexes in and around the city of Luxor make a great pre or post-course trip. Whether you come for the culture, the history or simply for the beaches, our TEFL center in Alexandria is always a great choice.
In addition to certifying you as a TEFL teacher, we’ll also offer worldwide lifetime job support so we can help you find work in Alexandria or anywhere else there is a demand for qualified EFL teachers.

What travel documents will I need for egypt?
You will be required to get a tourist visa (our course is registered as a seminar in Egypt, not as a school) from the nearest Egyptian Consulate or Embassy. This process takes about one week. You can also obtain your visa upon arrival in Cairo. However, we recommend getting your visa before you leave your home country so you do not have to waste time at the airport.*
* As this information is subject to change at any time, we advise you to contact your local consulate for current travel regulations prior to planning your trip.
What is the course schedule?Expand
The first class will take place on Sunday morning at 9:30 a.m. Classes run from 9:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. There is a lunch break from 12:30 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. in addition to appropriate breaks between sessions. Classes run from Sunday through to Thursday, a typical school week in Egypt. The first two weeks are input sessions where trainees acquire skills related to teaching techniques, classroom management, grammar, phonology, Arabic language and culture and other components of the course.
What can I expect during teaching practice?Expand
We use local Egyptian students for the trainees’ teaching practice and all practice sessions are held in real classrooms.
Teaching practice starts in the last two weeks of the course. It includes live teaching observation, shared teaching practice and six teaching practice classes. In a typical day our trainees go to the teaching practice school to give their lesson in the morning (transport is provided) and in the afternoon they prepare for the next teaching practice class with the assistance of the trainers at the center.
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 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.
Who usually attends the course?Expand
We average eight trainees on each course. The majority of trainees are native English speakers but we also get some fluent English speakers from the local region training with us. Trainees must be 18 years of age or older and the age range varies greatly depending on the course.
Is there a dress code?Expand
During trainees’ lessons, casual attire is allowed. Egypt can get rather hot so this means sandals, shorts, t-shirts and other loose fitting clothing, cotton attire is best. During teaching practice you will need to dress in trousers/skirts and closed-toe shoes. Men need collared shirts, while women need to wear conservative tops that will cover their shoulders. Men also need to shave or keep facial hair neatly trimmed. No visible tattoos or facial piercings are allowed while teaching local students.
What should I bring for course studies?Expand
Please be sure to arrive on the first day of the course with a notebook and a pen. We also encourage you to bring a laptop as we have Wi-Fi at the training center. We will provide all course materials for you so there is no need to bring anything else for the course itself.
