Teaching English to Young Learners course (TEYL)

Welcome to our TEYL course! Teaching English to Young Learners in France is by far the fastest growing area in English teaching here, and there is a huge demand  in France for qualified teachers. See here for one ex trainee’s experiences teaching kids in Toulouse.

This one week, 18 hour, classroom based course can be taken as an add-on week to our Certificate in TEFL course (see dates below). The TEYL course is open to anyone who has our  TEFL Toulouse qualification or equivalent and runs from 9.30 to 1pm  or from 2 to 5.30pm daily, at our training centre.

Successful trainees are awarded the TEFL Toulouse Certificate in Teaching Young Learners (Cert. TEYL).
