Why take your TEFL Course in Nigeria?
Due to its ever-increasing industrial development, Lagos is the most modern city in Nigeria. The TEFL course in Nigeria takes place in Ikorodu, a suburb of Lagos, a fast-growing mega city competing with New York. Ikorodu has a very good road network which makes it easily accessible. Accommodated in an English school, the TEFL training center is located approximately 22 km away from Lagos International Airport. If you want to teach in Nigeria or neighbor countries, taking your course in this location is a great option!
Study in Lagos
The facilities offer six spacious classrooms, audio-visual tools, and a small library. Each classroom is equipped with computers to enhance teaching in the class. The teaching practice students are locals who want to learn or improve their English skills. The course runs from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm from Monday through Thursday. There is an hour lunch break during which the TEFL trainees can eat in one of the nearby standard eateries. There are additional short breaks throughout the day. On Fridays, TEFL trainees have to plan study time from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm. The first teaching practice for TEFL trainees takes place starting Week 2 of the program and continues daily until Week 4. Each teaching practice is followed by evaluation and further practice. The overall progress of the theoretical part of the program is measured by weekly practice quizzes. The goal of the program is to prepare students for the following interviewing process with schools and, ultimately, for the teaching position ahead. It was also designed to help trainees achieve their career goal–a teaching position in the country of their choice.
