Our TEFL course in Nepal is based in the country’s capital city, Kathmandu. As well as being the country’s capital city, it is also the largest and most developed city in Nepal, with a population of over half a million people. The city is home to a wide variety of ethnic groups, one of the largest being the Newars who are famed for their skills as craftsmen and traders. In fact, it is the importance of Nepal as a trade route between India and Tibet that has led, in part, to the country becoming popular as a tourist destination.
According to ancient folklore, the city was originally designed in the shape of the Khukuri knife, a traditional weapon and tool made famous by the legendary Gurkha soldiers. Durbar Square is located at the ‘handle of the knife’ and is surrounded by temples, monuments and the Royal Palace. From here the city’s oldest districts flow to the southwest and the northeast, while the city’s most popular shopping district, New Road, stretches to the east of the square. Here you will also find much of the city’s budget accommodation, in the areas of Thamel to the north and Jhochhen (known as Freak Street) to the south of Durbar Square.
Kathmandu’s suburban areas lie mainly to the east of Kantipath, the main north-south road; this area contains some important landmarks, namely the Royal Palace and the Tundikhel (parade ground). Stretching south from the palace gates you will find Durbar Marg, a wide thoroughfare which is the main location for the city’s more upmarket hotels and restaurants. Another sight to look out for is the Temple of Swayambhu. The temple is perched on top of a hill to the west of the Bishnumati River and can be reached on foot.
As anyone who has ever visited Nepal will tell you, it is undoubtedly a magical place. The country is widely known for its location amongst the awe inspiring peaks and foothills which make up the Himalaya mountain range. However, Nepal is also blessed with a warm hearted and welcoming population, an endless array of ancient temples and a surprisingly diverse landscape which offers some of the best hiking opportunities anywhere in the world. Although Nepal is far from being a rich country in a financial sense, this wonderful mix of people, culture, history and natural beauty make it seem incredibly rich indeed.
All in all, the country of Nepal has something for everyone to enjoy, from the magnificence of the mountain ranges, to the bustling street markets of Kathmandu, every visitor will find something about Nepal that will stay with them forever. As the country is home to eight of the ten highest mountains in the world, it is fair to say that Nepal is truly the top of the world.
Our TEFL certification course in Nepal is based in a highly respected language school right in the heart of the capital city, Kathmandu. Established in 2008, the language school is well known for its high standard of teaching and teacher training, making it the perfect institute for completing your TEFL course.
In the area surrounding the school you will find plenty of local shops that are fascinating to explore due to the wide range of items on offer. There are also plenty of restaurants close by where you can enjoy the local cuisine, as well as many of the western dishes you may be missing from home. The onsite canteen is another option for a quick snack between lessons, whilst the school’s garden provides a peaceful and relaxing venue to unwind in your free time. For a welcoming and friendly atmosphere in one of the world's most extraordinary locations, our TEFL course in Kathmandu is simply hard to beat.Apply Now!
Our Kathmandu center has a range of recommended accommodation options to suit most budgets. All are located within walking distance of the training center and have been personally inspected to ensure cleanliness and a good standard of service. As rooms are limited we recommend you book as early as possible, alternatively you are also free to make your own arrangements.
Our recommended options fall into two main categories, basic and standard. Our basic hotel options offer very affordable rooms that are clean and comfortable and usually come with a private bathroom. Single, double and twin rooms are all available depending on your preference. Our standard hotel options provide a little more comfort and extra facilities, meaning the room rate is also a bit higher. Once you have booked your place on the course we will provide full details of the available options so you can choose a room that meets your personal requirements.Apply Now!
What are my payment options?Expand
Course deposits must be paid to our administrative center. Credit/debit card payments are the fastest and cheapest way to pay, but we also accept payments via Western Union, Pay Pal and bank transfer. While there are no deadlines for a deposit, courses can fill up quickly and your seat will only be reserved after the deposit has been paid.
Once you make your deposit, you will receive an email with an informational packet that provides detailed information about the course and Kathmandu itself.
The balance of the course fees must be paid in cash in USD or Nepali currency in Kathmandu. All payments must be received by the end of lunch on the first day of the course.
Fees are all-inclusive so you won’t be asked to pay additional costs for course related materials or services. This also includes course moderation and accreditation fees, airport pick-ups* and lifetime job assistance.
* All the hotels we use for your accommodation provide free airport pick-up services. You will therefore be met by a driver at the airport and be taken directly to your hotel.
What are my accommodation options?Expand
We can book accommodation for you in our preferred hotels in Kathmandu. You are, of course, more than welcome to make your own accommodation arrangements. After you have secured your place on the course we will provide full accommodation details and ask you to fill in an accommodation preference form. All payments are made directly to the hotel by cash or credit card either on arrival or on departure.
We can offer you a range of prices according to the standard of hotel and the type of room you would like to book. Prices for a basic hotel start at US$ 407 per month (for a single, non-AC room). Prices for a standard hotel start at US$ 559 per month (for a single, non-AC room).
Typically, a room in either a basic or standard option hotel will have single, double or twin beds, a wardrobe, a small desk and a private bathroom with shower. Some rooms may have a TV. All rooms have hot water. The difference between the basic and standard options is predominantly the facilities the hotel offers and the general standard of the hotel; although we are happy with the cleanliness and standard of all hotels we accommodate you in.
What travel documents will I need for Nepal?Expand
At the time of writing, all visitors to Nepal (excluding Indian nationals), require a visa. Tourist visas can be obtained on arrival at the airport for every nationality other than Chinese, or at most overland borders. Please note your passport should have at least six months validity remaining on arrival in Nepal.*
* 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. For more information on obtaining visas please check with your local Nepalese consulate or embassy.
What is the course schedule?Expand
We hold an orientation session at 9:00 a.m. on the first day of the course. We recommend that you arrive in Kathmandu at least one day before in order to familiarize yourself with your surroundings and at least un-pack your bags before orientation.
Class-time is generally from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. five days a week (Monday to Friday) with breaks in between classes. A typical day in the classroom consists of four 1.5 hour ‘inputs’. Approximately six-eight days will be spent preparing and undertaking your teaching practice sessions. Course timetables will be distributed during the first input session on the first day of the course.
What can I expect during teaching practice?Expand
Your teaching practice will be conducted in a range of local governmental and private, primary and secondary schools and in some instances we may be teaching at orphanages, colleges and other institutions.
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 British or American, while many others come from Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Ireland, South Africa and the Philippines. Occasionally, we do get fluent non-native English speakers from Western Europe, Scandinavia, India, China, Thailand, etc. 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
For all input and tutorial sessions at the training location, there is only one specific dress requirement: Both men and women should have a shirt covering their shoulders. The course operates from within a school so we ask you to be mindful of this, as well as being mindful of your peers and to respect the fact that you are a visitor in another country.
During teaching practice there are specific requirements that adhere to the local dress code. All trainees are expected to dress professionally according to the following guidelines:
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.
Men: Long pants, slacks or trousers are required, jeans are not acceptable. Short or long-sleeved shirts with a collar are necessary, although a tie is not required. Loafers or dress shoes are both fine, sandals are not acceptable. Long hair should always be tied back.
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 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.
