Our TEFL Certificate Program offers everything you need to start teaching English effectively. The courses are taught by seasoned professionals who have a wealth of information to share with you. Our in-house practicum assignments ensure that the transition from theory to teaching is smooth and educational.

Curriculum: You receive 4 weeks of intensive training – 140 hours total – including 68 hours of practice teaching and observation.

You will observe real classes and teach real students in VLC’s established adult English courses and in our primary school, working with two experienced mentors. VLC’s TEFL instructors are all native speakers of English.  Other schools in Guadalajara don’t offer you this.  The average class size is about eight students, so you will enjoy very personalized instruction.

Courses start at the beginning of every month.
