Sardinia, Italy

 If images of tranquil turquoise coves, white sandy beaches, and abundant red wine make you think of home, you are probably from Sardinia.  Fortunately, one doesn’t have to be a native to enjoy this beautiful Italian island and its veritable buffet of sensory splendor.  Lovers of outdoor activities and history alike will find a wealth of each: swim, boat, windsurf, hike, and camp among ancient Nuragic and Phoenician ruins.  Our TEFL course center is located in Alghero, a small, waterfront city in the northwestern corner of the island.  The laid-back, Mediterranean island vibe of Alghero serves as a perfect backdrop to your 4-week, intensive TEFL course.  After a long, hard day of reviewing grammar and pedagogy, a sea-side sunset and glass of local red wine will remind you why you came to Sardinia in the first place.  After you graduate from the course, thousands of English teaching opportunities exist throughout Italy and neighboring Mediterranean countries.  To learn more about earning your TEFL certificate in Sardinia, inquire today!


Course Location

The course center is located in the historic port of Alghero on Sardinia’s northwestern coast. Our school is equipped with air-conditioned classrooms, a library of ESL teaching materials, computers, printers, photocopier, and audio-visual equipment.

In Alghero, the TEFL course is run in cooperation with inlingua Alghero, a well-reputed language school that organizes native-speaker taught language courses during the autumn and winter months for the locals of Alghero, and holds group courses for international travelers from all over Europe who come to Alghero during the spring and summer months for the express purpose of learning Italian. International TEFL Academy Alghero is a trusted member of an international network of language schools and as such is able to help TEFL graduates obtain employment with its affiliates worldwide, or even in Sardinia, should a graduate decide to opt for "island living". The school is conveniently located near both public gardens and beaches and is equipped with air- conditioning.
