Program Overview

Program Description:

Head to Quito, Ecuador for a summer full of incredible personal and professional experiences on this comprehensive hybrid TEFL program! You’ll work alongside local teachers, shadowing and observing their work, while also planning lessons and taking the lead teacher role for some classes when you’re ready. You’ll spend time between a non-profit school for children and a local high school to get a sense of different ages and English abilities. To complement your in-classroom experience, you’ll also take online TEFL courses that will award you a TEFL certificate and credentials to land a paid job! Rounding out this comprehensive hybrid online/in-person TEFL course are excursions, social and cultural activities, housing, staff support, professional development, and more.

Setting Description:
From lively indigenous festivals to lovely outdoor cafés in tranquil parks, Quito is a city of wonderful contrasts. It has a mixed history of ancient empires and colonialism. This history is visible in the ruins that dot the landscape and in the incredible Spanish-style churches and leafy plazas. UNESCO named the entire downtown a World Heritage site. They described Quito as having “the best-preserved, least-altered historic center in Latin America.” Quito comprises several distinct neighborhoods. You'll love the historic downtown with its colorful buildings, cobblestone streets, and street vendors selling everything you can possibly imagine. Equally fun is the Mariscal Sucre, the heart of the traveler scene in Quito. It’s rife with international restaurants, travel agencies, and hostels, and has a very lively dance scene.
