Our course has been in operation in the Florence city center and most recently in Borgo San Lorenzo since 2006, and we have trained over a thousand newly qualified TESOL teachers who have gone on to work all over the world. Our graduates are sought-after by local and international language schools due to their ability to interview extremely well. After they’ve finished the TEFL Tuscany course, they are consistently ready to take on any teaching challenge and thrive while doing so!
