Crete - TEFL Course
Wherever you decide to do your TEFL course, you are unlikely to find a more charming and beautiful location than Crete. From the life and vitality of the old town of Hania to the medieval mountain villages, from the sun-drenched sandy beaches with their all-year-round sunshine to the Minoan ruins of Knossos - Crete seems to offer everything. The wild landscapes of the interior and the majestically unspoilt trekking opportunities of the nearby Samaria Gorge make you forget sometimes that you are never more than a few miles from a palm-fringed beach.
The largest of the Greek islands is cheaply and easily reachable by flight or ferry from Athens. Flights from Athens to Chania (airport code: CHQ) are reasonably priced, leave several times a day and take just 40 minutes. Fast and slow ferries are also available if you would prefer to take your time and cruise across the Aegean to Chania's local port. Upon arriving in Chania, you will be met by a member of our staff at the airport or ferry port and transferred to your beachfront accommodation. We will have everything arranged to welcome you to Crete and ensure a stress-free arrival.
Greece today is also the centre of the largest TEFL-teaching market in the world. With over 6,000 language schools (including many on Crete itself), the massive demand for qualified native-speaking teachers can allow a wonderful wealth of teaching opportunities. The network of boat services connecting the Aegean islands means that such other exotic locations as Rhodes, Santorini and Kos are all within cheap and easy reach. The price includes:
- Meeting at Chania airport or ferry port & transportation to accommodation
- Welcome lunch
- Course fee (tuition, all course materials, unlimited use of all training centre facilities including internet access, course moderation fee, certification)
- Choice of optional social excursions each weekend
- Graduation ceremony & party
Accommodation options include shared rooms (Euro 350) and single (Euro 450).
