Teach English in France and worldwide with our 4-week

externally accredited TEFL Certificate course


Living in France and unemployed? You may be able to get your course funded by the Pole Emploi. If we accept your application we will send you the documents you need to take to them. 


TEFL Business English and Young Learners' sessions are included in the course at no extra cost. We offer lifetime job guidance but trainees usually find TEFL work very soon after the course.



Our TEFL course and location:

Welcome to TEFL TOULOUSE 2014 - for our 5th year of providing quality TEFL courses in the south of France! Our externally accredited 4-week intensive TEFL  certificate course with 6 hours teaching practice provides you with the minimum qualification that you need to teach English as a foreign language worldwide. Our course is in line with British Council recommendations for TEFL  courses, and our new training centre is opposite the beautiful Jardin des Plantes in the city centre.

Once you have qualified with us there are endless opportunites for teaching English in France and internationally.

We can organise very comfortable accommodation for you for the 4 weeks, for around 350 to 600 euros depending on your preferences  - just mention this on the application form.

Because many of you want a full "integration into France" package, we are usually able to offer an elementary 16 hour French course for just 200 euros for ex-trainees.

We run TEFL courses year round and strongly believe in observed teaching practice. Our objective is to make you employable immediately upon graduating, to keep up our reputation of excellence and to maintain standards in the profession.  We do NOT run weekend or online TEFL courses for these reasons.

We are the only externally accredited 4 week TEFL course in south west France, and  have many ex trainees teaching English in France, as well as worldwide.



Not sure how to choose a TEFL course?

After our course, you will be in on the spot in France's fastest growing city if you want to teach English in the region, and you will have taught French people

Not sure if this the right moment to do a TEFL course? A TEFL Certificate is a ticket to be able to work in any country in the world, and is valid for the rest of your life - so get it under your belt now!

The course really helps you gain confidence giving presentations even to very large groups - which you probably WILL need to do at some point in your career, even if you are not sure teaching is for you

TEFL Business English and Young Learners'  sessions  are included in the course fee - no hidden extras with us

Living elsewhere in France? We are the nearest accredited TEFL course to Bordeaux, Biarritz, Carcassonne, Limoges or San Sebastian

Already TEFL teaching but not fully qualified? UK teacher fed up with discipline problems and paperwork? Look no further - and refine your technique with us

Want to live in a sunny, lively, beautiful, historic city that isn't a tourist trap or metropolis? You'll love Toulouse - and most of the centre has just been pedestrianised

Online or weekend TEFL courses will not usually get you a job afterwards - don't waste your money! The 4 week TEFL course with 6 hours teaching practice is the minimum qualification language schools want.

We are not part of a worldwide chain - we are only here in Toulouse. We supply high quality training by qualified professionals and have no other flashy locations. We will also not give you the hard sell!


"It was an intense 4 weeks but really good fun! I learned a lot and felt confident putting it into practice"

I would definitely emphasize how effective the course is...... how it is taught makes a difference when you compare it to online courses.
You leave knowing you have all the tools to be a good teacher.
