Teach English in France and worldwide with our 4-week

externally accredited TEFL Certificate course


Living in France and unemployed? If you are already registered with the Pole Emploi, you may be able to get your course funded. If we accept your application we will send you the documents you need to take to them. 


TEFL Business English and Young Learners' sessions are included in the course at no extra cost. We offer lifetime job guidance and trainees usually find TEFL work soon after the course.



Our TEFL course and location:

Our externally accredited 4-week TEFL  certificate course with 6 hours teaching practice provides you with the qualification that you need to teach English as a foreign language worldwide. Our course is in line with British Council recommendations for TEFL  courses, and our new training centre overlooks the beautiful Jardin des Plantes in a wealthy distict in Toulouse.

Once you have qualified with us there are many opportunites for teaching English in France and internationally.

We can organise comfortable accommodation for you with host families from around 350 euros, and studio flats from around 500euros.

We run TEFL courses year round and strongly believe in observed teaching practice. Our objective is to make you employable immediately upon graduating, to keep up our reputation of excellence.

We are the only externally accredited 4 week TEFL course in South West France, and  have many ex trainees teaching English in France and worldwide. Come and join us!



More reasons to choose us

If your goal is to teach English in France, even for the short term,  then after our TEFL course you will:

-know how to set up as a freelance teacher in France - employers are starting to want this

-know how to deal with the French bureacracy re opening bank accounts etc

-have had experience teaching French students

-have made some good French contacts and friends

-have a qualification from a very highly regarded TEFL course in France

.......the list goes on. Compare this with arriving "cold" and trying to settle in France and find a teaching job!


Still not sure?

Not sure if this the right moment to do a TEFL course? A TEFL Certificate is a ticket to be able to work in any country in the world, and is valid for the rest of your life - so get it under your belt now!

The course really helps you gain confidence giving presentations even to very large groups - which you probably WILL need to do at some point in your career, even if you are not sure teaching is for you

TEFL Business English and Young Learners'  sessions  are included in the course fee - no hidden extras with us

Living elsewhere in France? We are the nearest accredited 4 week TEFL course to Bordeaux, Biarritz, Carcassonne, Limoges.....

Already TEFL teaching but not fully qualified? UK teacher fed up with discipline problems and paperwork? Look no further!

Want to live in a sunny, lively, beautiful, historic city that isn't a tourist trap or metropolis? You'll love Toulouse!

Online or weekend TEFL courses will not usually get you a job afterwards - don't waste your money! The 4 week TEFL course with 6 hours teaching practice is the qualification language schools want.

We are not part of a worldwide chain - we are only here in Toulouse. We supply high quality training by qualified professionals and have no other flashy locations. We will also not give you the hard sell!


The course was a total success! It was challenging and fast paced but there was ample support and encouragement from the staff. I would definitely recommend this centre to anyone considering doing a TEFL qualification. It was one of the best things I have ever done!

Wow, what an experience! Coming from Chicago, teaching English and living in France was a dream of mine - one that I was able to experience thanks to TEFL Toulouse. From the one-on-one training, real classroom hours and daily feedback sessions, TEFL Toulouse gave me the skills to teach in the aerospace industry in Toulouse!"
