Calcutta, or “Kolkata” as it’s now officially known, is famous for its literary, artistic and cultural heritage. Once India’s capital city, Kolkata is still home to exquisite buildings, museums and galleries. Held in high esteem by locals and known as the ‘City of Joy’, Calcutta offers an unforgettable experience for anyone who takes our TEFL certification course here.
Along with Delhi, Mumbai and Chennai, Kolkata is one of the four main cities in India. During colonial rule it was the headquarters for the British Raj and Victorian architecture of that age can be seen from many points in the city. Kolkata is also commonly referred to as India’s intellectual capital.
The city offers plenty of activities for trainees during their free time. Trainees can tour the worldwide headquarters of the Ramakrishna Mission or marvel at the British-built, Victoria Monument, with its complex waterways and vibrant gardens. While there, trainees can visit one of the largest trees in the world: a 200-year-old Banyan tree with a circumference of nearly 1,000 ft.
Combine the city’s rich history with its wonderful attractions and delectable cuisine, and you’ll conclude that you’ve made the right decision to take your TEFL certification course with TEFL International in Calcutta.
In addition to certifying trainees as TEFL teachers, we also offer worldwide lifetime job support so we can help course graduates find teaching work in India or anywhere else there is demand for qualified EFL teachers.

Women: Shoulders should be covered, blouses with sleeves are suggested. No low-cut necklines, very short skirts or bare midriffs. Open-toed shoes are acceptable, but not hiking or flip-flop sandals.
