About

Teaching English in Italy is a teacher training organization located in Florence, Italy.

We provide high quality teacher training courses for both English and other language teachers.

The Weekend TEFL and all other onsite certificate courses are held in collaboration with the Europass Teacher Academy in downtown Florence, Italy. The Online TEFL Certificate course is taught by the same English teacher trainer but the certificate is issued from London, England.

The courses we offer provide the certification needed for working in private language schools, anywhere in the world, as an English language teacher.
The training courses are useful for new teachers seeking certification or for those who have already been teaching but need to formalize their training by completing a TEFL or TESOL Certificate course. Our courses are also perfect for those seeking professional development in language teaching.
