Conveniently situated in the dynamic neighborhood of Lakeview, we are a mile away from Lake Michigan on Diversey Parkway just north of Lincoln Park, DePaul University, and a short walk from world-famous Wrigley Field (home of the Chicago Cubs for you sports fans).
With the Diversey Brown Line "El" (subway) stop just a block away, public transportation is easily accessible. It's a quick 15-minute ride to "The Loop" in downtown Chicago, which is home to the city's greatest architectural and cultural landmarks, including Michigan Avenue, the Art Institute of Chicago, the Field Museum, Soldier Field, the Willis Tower (famously known as the Sears Tower), and hundreds of world-class restaurants, shops and bars.
During your TEFL Certification class, you will receive instruction from two university-level professors and work with our highly experienced team of advisors and support staff. Our staff members have all lived, traveled and worked abroad, and collectively we have lived and traveled in more than 80 countries around the globe. In fact, because we like to practice what we preach, it is a requirement that all staff members have extensive international travel and work experience.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Please be prepared for the intensive nature of this course. It is an intense, full-time university-level course. You will be in class full-time 5 days a week & there is homework as well. In addition, approximately twice a week, students will stay until 8 pm to complete practice teaching (other class days wrap up around 5:30 pm).
