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

The course was a total success! It was challenging and fast paced but there was ample support and encouragement from the staff. I would definitely recommend this centre to anyone considering doing a TEFL qualification. It was one of the best things I have ever done!

Wow, what an experience! Coming from Chicago, teaching English and living in France was a dream of mine - one that I was able to experience thanks to TEFL Toulouse. From the one-on-one training, real classroom hours and daily feedback sessions, TEFL Toulouse gave me the skills to teach in the aerospace industry in Toulouse!"

Fees and what to bring

Your 4 week course costs 1600 €  - all materials, even a welcome evening and end of course celebrations are included. There are no hidden extras.
You will need approximately an extra 350 to 600€ if you would like host family accommodation and studio flats start from around 550€ - we offer a free accommmodation finding service. The cost of living in France is about the same as the UK or US. Just bring a laptop if you have one! If you are coming from outside Europe, you might want to bring a few hundred euros with you in cash to save on ATM fees, and double check with your bank that your ATM card will work in France. Re clothes to  bring -  Toulouse has a very pleasant climate and great clothes shops! But to get an idea, it gets hot in summer and can go down to about zero degrees (celsius!) in the winter - it is usually dry here though.
