Accredited teaching Business English course for practising teachers

Business English is English as used in business. The definition is prosaic, but its impact is complex.

Business English is the study and practice of composition with emphasis on correctness, propriety, spelling, punctuation, and the forms of business communication. As the word communication is what language is all about, Business English courses reduce the language scope to areas of English that emphasise commercial over cultural importance. Business English courses are frequently designed to produce conversational fluency using a limited vocabulary. Knowing what your students need to learn and how to adjust and deliver material within the learning scope are the skills all good Business English teachers have. This CertPT BE course teaches you those vital Business English teaching skills.

Trinity CertPT teaching Business English course

  • This course fills theoretical and practical gaps in knowledge for teachers working with teenagers and adults learning Business English.
  • You can use the skills you learn in a single language and multilingual classroom.
  • The course addresses the challenges of international business environments, therefore concentrates on the Communicative Approach (CLT) as the primary teaching method.
  • EBC has designed the CertPT BE to adapt to teachers with little or no experience of Business English teaching up to those who have a deeper understanding.
  • We also address why Business English students differ from General English students owing to their need for strengthening their knowledge and practical approaches for improving internal and customer-facing communication.

Teaching Business English involves teaching English to adults working in businesses of one kind or another or preparing to work in the field of business. The companies could be large multinationals, small private companies or even state-run concerns about providing products or services. Courses may be long or short. Classes may be taught in-company, in a language school, on rented premises or online.

Business English has much in common with General English but in many ways is different since the aims of a Business English course may be radically different from those of a General English course.

The aims of Business English teaching, whether broad or narrow, will always relate to students’ work. Sometimes this will mean teaching generalised business skills such as giving presentations, and sometimes it will mean something much more technical or academic.

The main thing to remember when considering what Business English is, relates to expectations. Not so much your expectations, but those of your students or their sponsors. Course organisers will have requested Business English because they want a course related to occupational or professional language needs. Investigating, analysing and fulfilling Business English students’ needs are critical to the success of any Business English course. Therefore, a great deal of attention should be paid to the language needs research process. You can only plan, design and give a good Business English course if you truly know your target audience. Without a good understanding of what your students need, how can you develop a Business English course that is tailored to their needs and requirements?

The purpose of this CertPT course in business English helps you find, tailor, adapt and develop material that will engage your students and therefore improve their learning experience and your teaching experience.

EBC graduate course reviews

Here are some reviews from course graduates.

Thinking about 2022, I realized that one of the most important events and achievements of this year was my study on the EBC Trinity CertTESOL and CertPT course. It was a very intensive, bright and useful course. I am grateful to director Tita Ashton for the amazing organization and support at all stages of training.The course consisted of a huge number of different activities - workshops, written analytical works, teaching practice, personal consultations, useful group brainstorming. We studied both general approaches to teaching English and specific topics on teaching grammar, speaking, listening and writing for students of different ages and levels. And my favorite section was "teaching an unknown language" - when we were learning Polish. We spoke exclusively Polish - in a short period of time we mastered a large amount of vocabulary, phonetics and grammar and began to communicate in a new language. I would like to express my admiration for our coach. I can say that Iza is one of the best teachers and methodologists I have met in my 30-year teaching career.I am very grateful for such an amazing opportunity for professional development. I really appreciate the support and professional attitude.Mitina Elena,English teacher and Director of language center.
This course was great. It was very useful to me and I am happy I picked this course. My trainers were fantastic and always very kind and helpful.
The EBC admin and teaching staff is amazing! Their clear instructions and assistance made this course fun and educational. With their help I passed the TEFL and Trinity CertTesol qualifications!
EBC TEFL course is a sound foundation for teaching English. All aspects of teaching are covered, from classroom management to methodologies of teaching grammar and vocabulary.The training and administration staff are courteous and are always on hand to help you if you are struggling for ideas.By far, the best aspect is the hands-on teaching. You get to put into practice all the theory that you learn, and the students are kind and willing to do almost everything you ask of them.After graduation, EBC will help you find work and will be great support as you develop your career.I am now a senior teacher at a university in Vietnam, with an MA and a Cambridge Delta. EBC have been available for support and references throughout my 11 years of teaching since I graduated with them.It's not easy work, mind you, but it's a challenge that is both enjoyable and rewarding. And EBC will be with you every step of the way.
I recently took the online TEFL/TESOL course and would definitely recommend this institution. I was given thorough advice and guidance right from the first email enquiry and the course delivered was probably above the standard I was expecting. Trainers/tutors are experts.
From start to finish, EBC’s Trinity CertTESOL course delivered exactly what it said it would, maintaining top-tier quality all throughout the four-week training period. Though the course is intense and requires a lot of diligence and focus, if you are willing to put in the work, you will not be disappointed, as the course is sure to help you grow exponentially in your craft.The material is top-tier, the trainers are excellent, and the course opens more doors than you can imagine. EBC even takes it a step further by helping graduates find jobs that match their preferences. More importantly, however, the trainers are passionate about what they do and genuinely want to see their trainees succeed. (Go ahead and try to name me a better team to work with—I’ll wait!)This course was life-changing for me, which is why I highly recommend it—especially to anyone who is serious about teaching English to speakers of other languages and wants nothing but the best quality. This experience gives you a return on investment that will last a lifetime.
The CertTeSOL prep course that I completed is excellent.First, as an English Teacher , I could learn how to make good lesson plans including time management.Second, I could learn how to give effective student-centered lessons by reducing teacher talking time and increasing more active tasks, I could review some important basic points of teaching such as grammar and pronunciation.Last but not least, not only my tutor, but also the whole team were outstanding. They made us feel very comfortable and were always really helpful.I am absolutely satisfied, and of course, I hightly recommend it.
The Trinity CertTESOL online course is well worth the time, work and money. If you want to be an effective TESOL/TEFL teacher, I highly recommend you get certified with EBC. The staff are knowledgeable, professional and passionate. It can seem overwhelming at first but you get the hang of things and meet some incredible people through it. Everyone considering teaching English abroad should consider EBC to get certified.
Excellent service. I completed my TESOL Certificate with them and I couldn´t be more satisfied. I learned a lot regarding teaching methodology and classroom management, very helpful teachers, detailed feedback and tasks and practice - oriented learning. 10 / 10.
One of the best! Studying on this course was the best decision I had ever done. After the intense four weeks of studies The reward to have my Cert helps me to finally get the job I love to do, to teach thank you EBC. The teaching methods I’d learned, all of it was very important,useful and effective. I’m currently working right now for almost four years in one language academy here in Madrid. Thank you EBC.
EBC delivers high-standard courses along with competitive moderators and keen methodology. Having said this, high-standards comes with high-expectations! If you put all the work and reel into the structure and rationale of the programme, you’ll exponentially enrich your educating skills in general. The evaluation they give when it comes to work output is fair. They constantly acknowledge your strengths and remedies your weaknesses. Having two moderators (and a student advisor) for check and balance plays an important role in sharpening teaching skills. I always believe that it is important, as an educator, to consider your learners. Their methods align with this personal take. EBC, in their programmes, carries out this approach while imprinting the same technique for their trainees to use during the programme itself and soon as they start with their careers. When it comes to application, registration, and the works, I didn’t encounter any problems as their student advisor is always available to assist. In the near future, I’d like to undergo another course with EBC. Best of luck!
I would recommend this course to anyone - a very well-structured and organised course with amazing teachers 🙂
Excellent director, tutors and staff for Trinity Certtesol course. They are always ready to help. An ideal place for this course in Madrid. I would definitely recommend this academy.
I studied both my CertTESOL and CertPT with EBC and the experience was great, the tutoring, support and organisation of the course was all top notch!
Very professional. I would recommend this course to anyone looking to teach English. I learned a lot as a native English speaker.
I would highly recommend EBC International to anyone who wants to get the CertTESOL. The course is well organized and trainers are very professional. I've been teaching English for three years already but I'm glad I did this course because I truly learned a lot about teaching.
This programme is second to none. Everything contained in this course has been highly useful and has shaped me as an ELT. You will not only obtain one of the most highly recognised certificates, but you will also acquire valuable skills and put them into practice. Thanks to our trainers and all the staff at EBC, especially Iza, an absolutely outstanding and dedicated professional.
The Online Trinity CertTESOL/TEFL course at EBC Madrid surpassed my expectations. As a native English speaker with some teaching experience, I expected a refresher course with an intensive workload. The programme turned out to be a one month challenge that has equipped me with the tools I need to be the best teacher I can be. I will be forever grateful to Tita and the exceptional trainers at EBC whose unending support was invaluable. If you want to excel as a professional English language teacher, I highly recommend EBC Madrid.
The Online CertTesol at EBC is an intensive program that will give you real and useful professional tools needed for a language teaching career. The course is given by professional and encouraging trainers, and the tasks given help you get a real insight of what teaching english as a foreign language is all about . It was a challenging yet rewarding experience which I truly recommend!
I did the online CertTESOL course with EBC and I have to say that I am beyond happy with the quality of the teaching, materials and support that you get before, during and after the course. It is a very intense course, but you learn a lot and most of all you have a lot of practice time!
I had a great experience at EBC and I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to become an English teacher. It is a very intensive course that requires daily work, but it is very rewarding. The strategies and techniques you learn here help you become a better professional, and they also offer assistance for job search afterwards. I only have good things to say about EBC and their staff.
It's a great opportunity to attend an intensive course and become a teacher. The teaching methods we obtained are unique and effective.
I really recommend this academy, they help you a lot, to improve in how to teach english, how to use the different techniques, for the learners, to make them understand all the concepts concepts to give in a class. Also they taught us how to have a good rapport in class and creating a good coherence with the learners, to create motivation for them.It has been a great experience, and know ready to for and teach what Iearn here.
I would definitely recommend EBC Madrid. The course organization and content both are brilliant. The course opened my mind about methodology and classroom management, increased my consciousness about learners needs and communicative methodology in general. Also, we had fun teaching and learning, especially with the Norwegian lessons.Without Tita and John's engagement and encouragement, it wouldn’t have been possible.EBC es un lugar ideal para este curso. Dudaba mucho antes de elegir academia, pero la experiencia con EBC ha merecido la pena. Me encantó el nivel de profesionalismo de los profesores: John es un ejemplo perfecto del profesor que sabe motivar a sus alumnos. En EBC me apoyaron en cada etapa del curso que me hacía sentir muy a gusto. Mil gracias!
I love EBC and highly recommend it to anyone who wants to learn to teach English. However, it is not a cake walk and is an extremely intense course with daily submissions. It is extremely professional and has a dual certification of TEFL and Trinity CertTESOL. EBC also provides lifetime assistance for job search. EBC is genuine, has warm people and excellent staff. Brilliant learning and teaching experience!!
Gilt-edged input learning topped up with cutting-edge teaching quality and coupled with a most outgoing, fresh and knowledgable ambient. Whether you are a techer already, or a would-be, this course by far settles yourself in, this in virtue of the most up-to-date teaching acumen from Trinity College and delivered by EBC. Not only good value for money - but priceless!
I had a remarkable experience over here. Teaching is my passion but I had never taught a foreign language to a class of adult students. I learned a lot of teaching techniques and strategies over here. I had a good brush up of my English Grammar and was well prepared to teach in the real world. I had immense support and proper guidance from John and Tita, and a lot of co-operation from William throughout the course. So, a big thank you to the entire EBC team.
Thoroughly enjoyed my time at EBC. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for an intensive, comprehensive teaching course. You should be prepared to do a lot of work, but it's very rewarding.
Highly Recommended! Everyone is helpful and the course itself was very helpful, especially for people who have no teaching background and would like to change careers.
I had a good time doing my TEFL here in Madrid with EBC. The classes always started on time with a very realistic approach used to teach. I would recommend people to do TEFL from EBC to learn good ways to teach English and make it fun for students.
worth the money..highly qualified instructor and staff.
i learned a lot of strategies in teaching.I took the intensive 1 month course and it was really hard work but it was well worth it. Thanks a lot to our amazing teacher. I was so happy to receive my Certificate.Thanks alot EBC for everything.
EBC is a wonderful academy. I attended an intensive course to gain my TEFL/TESOL qualification. The teaching was in-depth, covering skills, general and business English, as well as how to teach children and adults. All of this was imparted by our professional guide, John. Thank you to all the staff who went out of their way to be encouraging and helpful. It has been a memorable experience!
Great course with an awesome staff. All aspects of teaching, grammar, finding work and even living in Spain are covered in great detail. Would recommend highly to anyone looking to do their TEFL.
Excellent and very comprehensive programme. Our instructor taught us everything we need to know about teaching English. The practice teaching sessions we did are great experience for the real world and I now feel confident that I can teach professionally. Thank you John for your commitment and dedication.
Great classes, highly recommended.
Highly recommended course. The 8 practice lessons provide invaluable experience.
Great course! You'll work very hard (it's very intensive) but definitely worth it. I totally recommend it.
The class was very good. The instructor John is friendly and very thorough with his classes. William, in the front office, is a joy and is very helpful with all of my course needs. Tita, is very nice and was helpful in explaining different options for working and staying in Madrid.
John is a good teacher and he puts efforts inorder to understand your requirements. He teaches you in the right ways, like how to present the language in a simple way, how to keep the motivation on, etc.It´s a intensive course but it´s really worth !!Willam is a good administrator.Thanks for all the help and support. 🙂
The course is very intensive but IT IS REALY WORTH! If you are looking for a course that teaches you how to become an English teacher, well this is the best one. You really get the better skills for teaching English at all levels with a clear knowledge about what you are doing.The staff of the course is really nice and helpful. He is a really nice person who helps you whatever you need.Teachers here at really good and they really know how to train you as a English teacher very well.
EBC Madrid had equipped me with the necessary knowledge and skills I need to be better in teaching. William is so nice and is very accommodating to us students. And, John is the best teacher who can simplify and make the students understand even the most complicated grammatical concept. Kudos!
The course is very intensive but it helps a lot to bring out the best in me. John is an amazing teacher and he is very professional. I'm very thankful for all the guidance and help that I received from EBC. I highly recommend it.
The course is really useful. It makes you equipped with the right knowledge, training and attitude. Things you need to have that confidence to go out and face the world as an English teacher. Highly recommended!
I wanted to know some new modern methods of teaching foreign labguages and it was the main idea I had , but it didn't happen.This course was just a nice posibility to communicate in English a lot. Thank you
I'm very satisfied with the course, I really learned a lot of teaching skills and important techniques that I really could utilize in the future.
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!
It was a great and intensive course! I learned and enjoyed this whole learning how to teach experience. Thank you very much for your time and knowledge. I feel well-prepared now. EBC Madrid, 2017.
Great experience. John is the best teacher. He explains English Grammar easily and even makes it fun to learn.I will, without any doubt, recommend the course. All subjects are very helpful. It´s been hard work but very productive and interesting.El mejor curso para profesores de Inglés que se puede encontrar en Madrid.
This was a wonderful experience that has prepared me very well. The staff is very helpful and understanding.
I've just finished my EBC TEFL course. It was a great experience. I definitely recommend this course. John is an amazing teacher and he is very professional. It was just a pleasure. Thank you so much and good luck!
I highly recommend EBC madrid.. It's a very busy 4 weeks, it's a very INTENSIVE class but it's worth it I learn too much from Professor John and I think his one of the Master's in Grammar. And also thank you Tita and William.
I learned so much from this class. John is an amazing teacher.
its was the best school form teacher
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.
EBC International TEFL course in Madrid, class of August 2017.. A very intensive 4 weeks but very well spent one. Thank you William, Tita Ashton and especially to our teacher John.. I am very thankful for all their guidance,motivation and patience. Two thumbs up for the EBC Madrid team..thank you 🙂 🙂 🙂 I highly recommend EBC training center in Madrid. Cheers for more success!
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!
I had learned a lot with this course. I appreciated to much all the employees with their full support. The trainor is very supporttive and very patient in motivating his students. Eventhough the course is very short time, i learned so many things to improve my ability specially in teaching methods. I highly recommend this course to others. Thank you for all the support.
I appreciated very much the way ebc taught. They have an excellent trainor with whom we learned a lot. I learned a many methods of teachings and I would highly recommend ebc center for those who would like to learn how to teach English. I enjoyed with other students and learned from them too. Thanks to all the staffs of ebc
Excellent course. Highly recommended to learn how to become an efficient English teacher. Be aware though that the course is INTENSIVE, and that you may not be able to have time to think about anything else besides the course for 4 weeks.
This is a great course but it is very intensive. You must be prepared to work hard but you will learn a great deal. The instructor, John, is a true master teacher and it was great learning from him. Would highly recommend.
One thing I consider a necessary evil in my chosen profession is the tedious and arduous task of lesson-planning. Fortunately, I consider my training in this regard to be one of the best (courtesy of EBC). The four weeks I spent with them to eventually gain my certification in TEFL/TESOL were some of the most grueling I've experienced. And despite my graduating five years ago, I am still regularly in touch with them, whether for random things, or to specifically ask for help in going over material for my students (help which, I must say, they're more than happy to give).
Wanted to become a teacher in just 1 month schooling? I recommend you to enroll in EBC Madrid. They will teach you everything for you to become a proficient teacher. So, don't waste time. Go and enroll now!!!
If you're looking for an easy TEFL course, EBC is not for you. If you are interested in one that will make you a well-qualified teacher however, I would not hesitate to recommend EBC Madrid. I found the quality of the instruction to be excellent and for me, the emphasis on Business English was especially important.
I was very pleased to find a passionate instructor and rigorous content in what could otherwise be a dull, routine and nominal certificate course. High praise for John, our trainer, and the entire EBC staff for creating such a rich curriculum and engaging experience - all in just four weeks!
Un curso muy intensivo e intenso, se trabaja mucho pero se aprende muchísimo. Muy recomendable si quieres ser buen profesor de inglés, aprendes todo lo que no sabías que habías olvidado de gramática inglesa. El profesor es excelente y sabe muchísimo sobre gramática, técnicas de enseñanza y motivación, y métodos de aprendizaje. Acabo el curso muy cansada pero satisfecha y lista para empezar a trabajar. A mejorar: las instalaciones son un poco vetustas, no ponen la calefacción, las fotocopias podían ser más oscuras para que los alumnos vean bien los trabajos, y el ordenador que hay para el uso de los alumnos es gótico, aunque el WiFi funciona muy bien.A very intensive and intense course, lots of work but you learn tons! Mandatory if you want to teach ESL and pick up lots of resources and tricks. You will relearn everything you didn't know you'd forgotten about English grammar. The teacher is highly knowledgeable about all areas related to teaching ESL, and gives lots of support and ideas. I have finished the course quite tired but content and ready to teach. Areas that could improve: the premises are a bit aged, they don't turn the heat on, students have a hard time with the quality of the photocopies, and the one computer they have for student use is from the last century, although the WiFi is very good.
Its been an extremely intensive training. I have learnt a lot and am looking forward to applying all the concepts.I am completely satisfied and happy I signed up for this.Thank you EBC team.
Doing the TEFL course through EBC has been great. I have learned so much and feel very confident about teaching now.I highly recommend it.
EBC and the TEFL course in Buenos Aires have been a great experience!! The course is very comprehensive, efficient and really focus on your teaching practice. The course load is pretty heavy but you get lots of support throughout the course and the tutors make sure you get all the help you need.The best part was that I could start my first job right after the course. It was incredibly easy to find work once I was certificated.I can definitely recommend the EBC TEFL course!Thanks a lot EBC Team Buenos Aires!
EBC is a great certificate program to prepare anyone who is interested in teaching English, regardless of the country/native language where they want to teach English. The hands-on practice that you get teaching actual classes is probably the most helpful part. There are also a variety of teaching resources made available to you, including activities, expert teaching guidance and direction, and printing assistance for materials.
This was exactly the right course for someone trying to make the transition to another part of the world as a language teacher. They struck a perfect balance between providing you with information and allowing you to practice on classes and gain confidence as a teacher.
The instruction was well given . I really appreciated the practical experience that came with the course. It really helped me prepare for teaching in the real world.
Not only did I find a TOP OF THE LIST institute where to learn the best teaching techniques from incredibly talented teachers, but also a place ran by amazing, welcoming, and supportive people. My experience at EBC International was unforgettable!!!
I thoroughly enjoyed the EBC International TEFL Certificate Course thanks to the wonderful experience the excellent staff offered by providing an all-inclusive training, as well as practical advice and experience, and most helpful support. If you are interested in teaching - and it doesn´t matter wether you have or not previous experience – this is definitely the course for you, and the best way to get skillful experience, self-confidence and a desire to teach! I am proud to be part of the EBC family.
I had a wonderful experience at Ebc! I discovered my capabilities and it had broaden my horizons. I met new friends and the whole team were very helpful!I will definitely recommend this to others!Congratulations to EBC and more power!!!!
I had a great experience at EBC. It can be a bit overwhelming at first but it's worth it.
If you are looking to really gain the knowledge that you need to be an efficient TEFL teacher, then this is the perfect school for you. I am fully prepared to start working as a teacher here in Madrid, after a very informative and intensive four week course.
Great course. Looking for my first TEFL job was easy because our resumes were blasted to lots of good schools in Madrid. I was getting calls from so many schools, sometimes it was overwhelming. EBC was also forwarding us emails from academies contacting them for teachers. It was very intense, the job placement help they give but it is great to have so many choices. Fantastic job placement. Definitely recommend it if you want to see Europe and find work fast. It was more than I expected. Thanks guys.
I had a great experience at EBC. At first, I thought that it was going to be one of those things where you pay your money and basically just get a certificate, with maybe a little bit of training or information thrown in. I was very pleasantly surprised to find that the course was rigorous and that I learned a great deal. I earned that certificate! My instructor was excellent and the experience helped me a lot. The staff are all very friendly, professional, and extremely supportive. I very much recommend EBC.
I trained with EBC in Argentina back in 2006 and here I am, 10 years on, still enjoying the journey of teaching English around the world. The skills I gained on the course transformed my life! Their support in finding work in Argentina was invaluable and their continued support throughout the years has been most welcome. I would highly recommend them if you are looking for a TEFL certificate.
I had the privilege of taking the EBC International TEFL Certificate in October 2007. What an amazing experience!! This course is very comprehensive, increasing the knowledge and understanding of native English speakers in how they use their language to communicate. A lot of instruction, practice teaching, and fun is jam-packed into 4 busy weeks, in one of the great cities of the world. The professional staff are extremely knowledgeable and helpful in assisting students to achieve the objectives of the course AND enjoy their experience. Perhaps most importantly is that the instruction is superb with a teacher who models so well the principles being taught in the course. It’s one thing to acquire the information on how to teach; it’s so helpful to see the “how-to-do-it” in action! Finding a job is what it’s all about, right? At EBC, the lifetime support offered to their graduates in finding suitable jobs wherever they are located in the world is a gift beyond measure. If you’re reading this review, thinking you might like to take a TEFL Course and teach English, this is the course to take. It will start you down the path of a wonderful educational and enriching experience which might just change your life forever in a most marvellous way. I love the EBC family!
My Husband and I had a fantastic experience with Olga and Anna at EBC in Chania, Crete. They were fantastic teachers and wonderful people who helped us successfully pass the course and became great friends as well. The added bonus was that EBC sent our CV's to a number of schools and we got a job immediately. I could not recommend the course more highly.
I got my TEFL certification from EBC in 2005, and even after 11 years, I know that I can still rely on them for support, and that in and of itself is an indication of excellence. The attention that I received and still receive today when I need it is exceptional. The course itself was engaging, with really dynamic teaching methods which I still use today, since I am still in TEFL, having decided to make it my long term career after being inspired, in large part, by EBC. Taking this course is a huge part of what made me decide to stay in the field, and with this certification, I have travelled through Asia, Europe, and South America. I have lived in the UK for 6 years, where I continue to teach and use EBC as a reference. The facilities were great, and although I took the course in Buenos Aires, I went to Spain and got exactly the same great attention and warmth that I had received in Buenos Aires. The employment opportunities which are offered after completion are to fine institutes, and no matter how much time passes, your CV will always remain with them, and their large variety of possibilities will always be available – just as they are still available to me. If you are looking for a course which is dynamic, intensive, engaging, and also great fun, exploring all of the elements that a TEFL instructor could possibly need, this is the place for you. I am thankful to have found this gem with which to carry my career forward.
Excellent course and very helpful team! Lots of support throughout the course which made the challenge much more easier and pleasing. The support continues after the course has finished and it is very easy to get a job as EBC send out your cv to many schools. It is more than I expected and I would highly recommend this course/EBC if you are looking to do TEFL.
The TEFL course was a thoroughly enjoyable experience and met my expectations. It was well structured, covering teaching theory, methods, best practices, and English grammar. In addition to this, there was a sufficient amount of lesson planning, preparation and teaching to adult learners. I left feeling confident in my abilities and would recommend this course.
My experience at EBC International has been very pleasing and fruitful. Being the eldest in the student's group brought a little hesitation in the beginning of the course, but my amazing tutor, Mr. John, made me feel equally comfortable in the teaching and learning process, just like the others. This boosted my confidence in putting my maximum efforts to achieve good results. I will always be grateful to my tutor for bringing out the best in me. The journey at EBC International has been a smooth and challenging one. I would recommend anyone and everyone to be here at EBC International to achieve their goals in the teaching profession.
My experience at EBC was great, i really got what i wanted. I was trained to be a good teacher, they teachers were helpful througout the course and always gave me feedback. I had a fantastic guide towards developing my own teaching style, the classes were assigned that i saw a range of different groups of people, levels and ages which was extremely helpful. The teaching practice was essential in my training and guided me towards my career. Thanks to EBC.
My experience with EBC is nothing short of wonderful. We had a very knowledgeable tutor who also encouraged us throughout the course, friendly staffs and the most amazing course mates. I have made leaps and bounces academically and socially. EBC International, I will definitely recommend to anyone.
A very supportive language school! I called many places before deciding on a program because there are so many options, and it can feel overwhelming without some research. I put in a lot of research! I chose EBC because the head of the school spent so much time answering my questions on the phone and making me feel at ease about the transition to Spain, not an easy task! They were very responsive to my emails and I had continued support throughout the course. I was even able to get hired at a school on my last week of classes, major win! They help you find a job and have a very good reputation with schools from my first interview experience.The course is very well organized and our instructor is beyond qualified and delightful. He has a PhD in linguistics, which I discovered secondhand because it's not something he brags about. It is clear from his instruction that he knows what he's talking about. He was very patient and knowledgable and the class is a lot of fun! It's a quality class with a team of very experienced and helpful people. I've made friends, laughed, and learned. I couldn't be happier with the program and I feel lucky to have found it!
Thanks a lot for amazing 4 weeks. It was really challenge, but full of positive emotions. I´m very grateful for your time and attention to each student.Thanks.Julia.
Hello Tita, just wanted to say that meeting you has really changed my life because since I finished the TEFL course with EBC, the jobs offers haven`t stopped coming. I really appreciate your support and efforts. My warm regards to John and William.
The experience I had at E B C was what I cannot forget. During the time of the course, I learned a lot of new words and their uses. I also realised that it is not just knowing the subjects that is important but also how to teach them is what matters a lot. The lessons, vocabulary, the class evaluations and activities all put together makes the course efficient. How knowledge is best imparted to the students is also something I learned at E B C and at the end of the course I am now able to teach English effectively.
The course is excellent! You really get a job after it.In every interview that I have had EBC is well known and respected.All that you learn is 100% applicable in real classes.I have been working since 2 weeks after I finished the course last Year (Nov. 6th 2015)Great job,Tia and John and thank you for sharing your knowledge with all of us.
The job placement is excellent. I just came back to Europe after working in China for almost a year. EBC is as helpful now in helping find teaching jobs in Rome as they were placing me in Shanghai last year. Thanks. You guys still in Orense St? I'll drop by when I'm in Madrid. Thanks again. Ciao.
I loved my experience with EBC TEFL. With the best people, the best Professors and friends..The quality of teaching is at a very high level and it contributed to my job and personal growth. Thanks for your love and patience.
