The Tango, TEFL and Spanish

The Tango and Argentina are inseparable. Tango is Argentina and Argentina is Tango. This hypnotic, mesmerising and sensual dance is one of the most important parts of the culture of Argentina and its birthplace, Buenos Aires.

Tango belongs to Argentina and especially to Buenos Aires. They are like Siamese twins.

The modern Tango that today is practised and performed by Argentinians and foreigners alike, started in the late 19th century as a dance of the poorer Italian immigrants to the Rio de la Plata area, principally Buenos Aires to the south and Montevideo to the north.

In Buenos Aires the Tango became very popular very quickly. It began to merge with the culture of the growing city of Buenos Aires.

Today the Tango is world-famous and very popular. It is taught and practised in Tango schools all over the world. You may be lucky and get asked to dance in the street with an expert.

For Tango enthusiasts who would like to stay in Buenos Aires and also learn Spanish, the easiest way is to teach English and take a Spanish course.

Staying in Buenos Aires, earning money through teaching English and learning Spanish is the perfect way to indulge and immerse yourself not only in the Tango but also a different way of living and a new perspective on life.

Teaching English will pay the bills and learning Spanish will help you enjoy the Tango experience and communicate better.

Use your training to your advantage. Use it so you can realise more than one dream.

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!
