Want to Teach English in Greece?
The LanguageCorps program in Greece is located on Crete, Greece’s largest island. From the life and vitality of the old town of Iraklion to the medieval mountain villages, from the sun-drenched sandy beaches with their year-round sunshine to the Minoan ruins of Knossos - Crete seems to offer everything. You are unlikely to find a more charming and beautiful location anywhere in the world.
Training & Certification
LanguageCorps offers the following Program in Greece:
- TESOL Certification
The four-week training course (approximately 140 hours) includes academic input sessions, 12 hours of observed teaching and 10 hours of observed teaching practice with local EFL students. The program is intense, interactive, and practical, and will give you the skills and confidence necessary to embark on a teaching career and work in a professional manner anywhere in the world.
The training center is situated in the center of Hania, Crete’s second largest city (and former capital) on the North-West coast. Hania is a beautiful old Cretan town with a population of around 60,000. The old town center is clustered around the 14th century Venetian harbor where much of the city’s life and light is to be found. The town is large enough to offer a cosmopolitan atmosphere and a ready range of nightlife and places to see, but small enough that it’s normally easy to get around on foot – whether from the training center to your apartment or from the local shops down to the nearest beach.
The TESOL Certification Program includes:
- Four-week TESOL Certification course
- Job placement assistance
- All course materials and use of all training center facilities including internet access
- Optional social excursions each weekend to some of the most fascinating parts of the island of Crete
The TESOL Certification Program Fee in Greece is US$1,795.
During training, accommodations in a fully-furnished shared apartment are available. The apartments have a sea view and are located just 300 feet from a beautiful beach.

Meeting at Chania airport or the ferry port and transportation to accommodations is also included.
