“The program pairs teaching foundation and theory with practical classroom experience. Overall, this was a very enriching and valuable learning experience. I would absolutely recommend this program for anyone with no teaching experience who wants to teach abroad.”

Tedros

Shanghai Classroom TEFL

"The TEFL training was beyond what I expected. There was an in-class training with several excellent teachers and trainers. Not only was I provided with books, lectures, videos, websites, and demos; I had the opportunity to actually teach classes of various sizes and age groups. Teaching Nomad made sure I was prepared for teaching. They made sure I had the confidence and skills to teach and do it well."
