TEFL / TESOL Class Details

Looking to earn an accredited 4-week TEFL/TESOL certification that will qualify you for thousands of English teaching jobs in Russia and around the world? This state-of-the-art TEFL certification course not only provides expert-led training and a recognized qualification, but personalized job placement assistance for finding jobs teaching English in Russia and around the globe.

In St. Petersburg, the TEFL certification courses are run in cooperation with the Benedict School - the biggest and most popular language school in the city. The St. Petersburg center is located in the heart of the city, near the Winter Palace and the Hermitage Museum.

St Petersburg is quite rightly known throughout the world for its beauty and culture. Unlike the Russian cities that came before it, with its strict geometric lines and an elegance reminiscent of Europe's most alluring capitals, St. Petersburg is in many ways Russia's adopted child: too European to be Russian, and yet too Russian to be European.

OPTIONAL EXCURSIONS & ACTIVITIES:

With the possible exception of the Louvre, there is no museum in the world that rivals the Hermitage in size and quality. Its collection is so large that it would take years to view it in its entirety; there were nearly three million works on exhibit. The museum is especially strong in Italian Renaissance and French Impressionist paintings, as well as possessing outstanding collections of works by Rembrandt, Picasso, and Matisse.

Visitors should also take advantage of its excellent Greek and Roman antiquities collection and its exhibits of Siberian and Central Asian art. Not least among the attractions of the Hermitage is the museum itself, with its fine interior decoration and architectural detail. The Hermitage is so enormous, its collection so striking and diverse, and its interior so attractive in its own right, that many visitors return several times during their stay in St. Petersburg.

I had 11 years experience as a public school teacher prior to getting my TEFL certification, but the ITA training laid down a great foundation for how to approach language learning specifically.

I understood if I wanted to teach overseas, a certification would make it easier to find good and stable employment. I chose ITA after a lot of research. The testimonials and articles they provided on the website were extremely beneficial. My adviser was awesome and helped me so much.
