TEFL Certification in Sardinia Italy - Overview
Looking to earn an accredited 4-week TEFL TESOL certification that will qualify you for thousands of English teaching jobs in Italy and around the World? Earn your internationally recognized TEFL Certification in the heart of the Mediterranean on the rustic Italian isle of Sardinia.
A rugged paradise where rolling citrus groves and forested mountains overlook white sandy beaches and sparkling turquoise waters, Sardinia has been a crossroads of history and culture since the dawn of civilization. From Phoenician merchants and Roman centurions to the great powers of Byzantium, Spain and Savoy, Sardinia’s strategic location has made it a prize for conquering powers.
The course itself is held just steps away from the shores of the Mediterranean in the medieval port of Alghero, a charming seaside town of cobblestone streets, lively piazzas and honey-colored buildings that traces its roots to the 12thcentury. As a trading port in the heart of the Mediterranean, Alghero's history and culture represent a melange of influences from Spain, Genoa, and other Mediterranean powers.
As a TEFL student spending four weeks here, you will have ample time to dive into the city’s past and experience the warmth of its people while exploring its exquisite neo-classical monuments, browsing the charming shops lining its intimate streets and lingering over a glass of local wine or a cappuccino in a street-side bar or café.
* Note about Sardinia job market: Sardinia is a moderately sized island off the western coast of Italy and while there are language schools there are limited employment opportunities on the island. The rule of thumb, go where the populations are large and the standard of living is high. Rome and Milan are where the majority of English teachers work (though there are many cities in Italy for English teaching). We provide job search guidance throughout Italy and graduates of this course are able to gain employment in Italy, if not specifically on the island of Sardinia.
