Learn, Travel, Teach and Earn the EBC TEFL way!


Training successful English teachers since 2002.

EBC started as a labour of love and continues to be one to this day.

EBC was founded and is staffed by teachers who believe in their students. You, our students, are the focus of our attention. Our challenge is to help you find your natural teaching skills and show you how to turn them into a triumphant success.

The benefit of EBC training exceeds all others. You don’t just learn techniques, you also learn about you.

You will learn the key technical skills required to teach English, but you will find within yourself how best to transfer those skills to your English students and help them improve their lives.

Imagine that! Guided learning, self-discovery, success and a job that helps others all within four weeks.

This is a great place to get your TEFL certification. The staff is kind, organized and very helpful. It was such a comfortable learning environment that I enjoyed very much. I liked the personalized attention and I got a lot more confidence and experience to be an English teacher. Thanks for everything!

I found the instruction throughout the course to be very effective and I finished the course feeling excited and prepared to begin teaching. There is nothing fancy about the EBC facility, however this doesn't in any way reduce the overall quality of the course. John, the instructor, has extensive experience (both as an TEFL teacher and a TEFL course trainer), which is evident in the thoughtful organization of the course. My class had only five students, which created lots of time for personal attention and advice. Make sure you come prepared to work hard!

The course has been really useful and the teacher, John, made the classes so much fun and very interesting. It is has been a great experience and has helped me realise how much I really enjoy teaching. It has also been a bit intense at times but I would recommend this course to anyone who would like to become an English teacher.

Class of August 2017.It's been a busy stressful 4 weeks but I am happy the group and I have all made it and we have TEFL certificates to show for all our hard-work and sleepless nights. Much thanks to our trainer John for his patience and ability to find solutions and guidance to help you find your way and energy throughout the course. EBC international is the best place to learn and share your knowledge of teaching. And for people like me who has no idea how to teach things like grammar and also to learn the grammar...this is the place to be!
