” I moved to Florence to study at The Learning Center of Tuscany to obtain my TEFL certificate. What I left with was a profound understanding and mastery of the English Language. The lessons I learned at the Learning Center not only helped me find work as a teacher, but pushed me to the next level of superior teaching. I would recommend The Learning Center as an excellent school to anyone wants teaching abroad, looking to become an English Language Teacher or for current English Language Teachers as a way to master their craft. ”
