Conveniently situated 50 miles from Athens, Corinth is the gateway to the Peloponnese, an area rich in natural beauty and historical sites. Ancient Corinth is an important archaeological site, and above the ancient town towers Acrocorinth, a fortress used throughout the middle ages by Byzantine, Venetian and Turkish occupiers.

How to apply
Fill out an application form and take that next step towards learning amidst the surreal beauty of raw beauty and excitement of Greece.
Noted for its year-round mild Mediterranean climate, Corinth, in Greece, easily blends the grace of past centuries with the warmth of present-day hospitality. An electric tram now links Corinth with Athens, just 50 miles away, but you won’t be needing it much for either history or excitement. Corinth itself is full of upscale stores and trendy coffee shops and nightclubs, as well as a host of commercial enterprises that mean steady employment for the TEFL graduate.
History comes alive on every street in Corinth, where Turks, Crusaders, Romans, Phoenicians, and many other ancient people strove to either master or destroy this fascinating sea port. The Apostle Paul gave Christianity several of its most important doctrines here, through his Epistles to the Corinthians. A wide blend of philosophy and religion runs through the town, making the citizens open-minded and welcoming. Today the city is noted for its fine leatherwork, as well as an incredibly diverse cuisine combining elements of European and Eastern ingredients that make every gyro sandwich an orgy for your taste buds. It’s impossible to get a bad meal, or a rude waiter, in Corinth!
Turn your back on the history and industry of Corinth and you’ll be facing the fascinating Peloponnesian waters. Snorkel in the waters of the bay, or sail away for a weekend on one of the many small islands that dot the coastline.
Whatever you choose to do with your time in Corinth, you’ll do it well-fed, well-traveled, and, with your TESOL certificate, well-paid.

Georgia Verousi – Trainer
Since my graduation from Panteion University with a degree in International and European Studies, I have been working as an English Teacher, teaching children and adults of all levels, and adapting lesson plans according to age, skill level and personal interests. I have also taught Business English and English for Specific Purposes. A sixth-month internship at the Greek Ministry of Foreign Affairs instilled in me the love for Culture, International Relations and Policies. A concrete, ongoing and well-rooted interest in teaching led me to study for my MA in Education at Roehampton University, giving me the opportunity to develop my instructional techniques and classroom procedures and facilitate my students’ academic success based upon reflective teaching. My studies focused on Multicultural Education, Leading and Managing people in Education, Teaching Practices for Dyslexic students in the EFL classroom, Counselling and Guidance in Education, EFL teachers’ Formative Assessment Practices as well as Pupil Misbehaviour from the perspectives of Research Paradigms, Research Tools and Ethics.
Embracing the concept of inclusion I always try to provide equality of opportunity for learning, respect for the differences among learners, and promotion of self-esteem, while encouraging pupils’ understanding and appreciation of the cultural diversity that is present in our society. I create friendly learning environments that enable improvement through the enhancement of student motivation, learning skills, discipline and the ability to reason. Being aware of the importance of effective working relationships, I motivate other teachers to create opportunities for participating in decision making regarding issues such as new teaching methods, new teaching material and changes in classroom practice.
