Wherever you decide to do your TEFL course, you are unlikely to find a more charming and beautiful location than Crete. From the life and vitality of the old town of Hania to the medieval mountain villages, from the sun-drenched sandy beaches with their all-year-round sunshine to the Minoan ruins of Knossos - Crete seems to offer everything. The wild landscapes of the interior and the majestically unspoiled trekking opportunities of the nearby Samaria Gorge make you forget sometimes that you are never more than a few miles from a palm-fringed beach.
The largest of the Greek islands is cheaply and easily reachable by flight or ferry from Athens. Flights from Athens to Hania (airport code: CHQ) are reasonably priced, leave several times a day and take just 40 minutes. Fast and slow ferries are also available if you would prefer to take your time and cruise across the Aegean to Hania's local port. Upon arriving in Hania, you will be met by a member of our staff at the airport or ferry port and transferred to your beachfront accommodation. We will have everything arranged to welcome you to Crete and ensure a stress-free arrival.
* Note about Greece job market: Due to the recent economic crisis and strict visa regulations, Greece is not typically a viable job market for most Americans & other non-EU citizens. That said you can always take the course in Crete and move to Turkey, which offers an excellent job market and a similar experience. Citizens of the UK, Ireland and other EU nations will have an easier time of it getting a job in Greece, though pay is modest and the market is not as strong as it is in some other European countries.
