Home / Location / Alexandria
Our TEFL training center in Alexandria, Egypt offers trainees one of the most fascinating locations in which to complete a TEFL teacher training course. Egypt is home to the fertile Nile basin, Valley of Kings and the Pyramids at Giza, while Alexandria itself hosts the perfect mixture of ancient culture and progressive urban life.
Cairo and Alexandria are Egypt’s two largest cities; both are rich in modern infrastructure so most creature comforts are readily available. Outside of these urban areas, Egypt has managed to hold on to an agricultural society that hasn’t changed much in more than 2,000 years.
In addition to Alexandria, Cairo is a mere two-hour bus journey away. Besides the Pyramids of Giza, Cairo offers a plethora of great museums and other attractions. Between the ancient artifacts and modern museums, Egypt is where culture vultures come to feast.
The TEFL course in Alexandria promises to be one of the most enlightening and interesting experiences of a lifetime. Located near the coastal waters of the Mediterranean Sea, Alexandria is an oasis of cosmopolitan life. Before modernization, Alexandria served as one of the most advanced ports of its time.
In addition to the most professional training available, we even offer free tours for all of our course participants. You’ll have your weekends free, leaving you to explore as much of Egypt’s fascinating attractions as you can.
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.
Apply now, and you could soon be living and teaching along the sun swept shores of the Mediterranean.

Our TEFL training center in Alexandria is right on the Mediterranean coast and is well-known for its comfortable climate. Between the idyllic seascapes and welcoming culture, we invite you onto the course for an experience you won’t soon forget.
With the help of our experienced training staff, you’ll deliver lessons to real EFL students who do not speak English as their native language. Students are enthusiastic and come to class voluntarily, so you’ll have a friendly and supportive environment in which to learn the skills needed to become an effective teacher.
Located in the middle of town, trainees are never far from a variety of great cafés and eateries. If you’re looking to explore sites outside the city, the school is conveniently located near public transport centers and we can arrange private transport options as well.
You’ll be pleasantly surprised by our staff’s professional approach and they’ll do all they can to ensure you have an enjoyable experience. Egypt’s low cost of living means you’ll enjoy a high standard of living at a fraction of the costs incurred in most trainees’ home countries. Added to this, job prospects in Egypt are great, making Alexandria an ideal place to take your teacher training course.

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.
