Our training centre overlooks the beautiful Jardin des Plantes in central Toulouse.

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

We have comfortable accommodation in Toulouse to suit your preferences, with host families from around 350 euros, and studio flats from around 500 euros.

More reasons to choose TEFL Toulouse

If your goal is to teach English in France,  then after our TEFL course you will:

-know how to set up as a freelance teacher in France - many employers want freelancers now

-know how to deal with the French bureacracy re opening bank accounts etc

-have had experience teaching French students of English - a plus in the eyes of local employers

-have a qualification from a very highly regarded TEFL course in France and contacts of all local language schools

-already be living locally

.......the list goes on. Compare this with arriving "cold" and trying to settle in bureacratic France and find a teaching job!


What's the right time to do a TEFL course?

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 we recommend you get it under your belt now - even if you are not sure when or where you will use it.

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 4 week TEFL course to Bordeaux, Biarritz, Carcassonne, Limoges.....

Already TEFL teaching but not fully qualified? Need a refresher course?  UK teacher fed up with discipline problems and paperwork? Look no further!

Want to live in a sunny, lively historic city that isn't a tourist trap or metropolis? You'll love beautiful Toulouse!

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 you need to get started

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!

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 TEFL course to anyone considering doing an English teaching 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, a welcome evening and end of course celebrations are included. There are no hidden extras or taxes, although you pay the bank charges in getting the fees to us.
You will need to put aside around 400€ or more for accommodation depending on what you have chosen after using our free accommodation finding service. Re spending money, the cost of living in France is about the same as the UK or US. 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 cold in winter, although usually dry. Bring a laptop or tablet if you have one.
