About Guadalajara :

Photos of International TEFL Academy, Guadalajara CityGuadalajara is Mexico's second largest city, and is one of the few cities around the world that actually retains its provincial warmth. Despite its massive size, you will find that locals in the city are very friendly and embracing to foreign people.

The city of Guadalajara has many parks in which you can spend weekends enjoying a book under the shade of a tree or do so climbing.

On Sundays, one of the city’s largest avenues completely closes to traffic and opens for residents to use their bicycles, rollerblades, skateboards, or simply for jogging.

Open air markets are a very common and distinguishing feature of Mexico. While you are taking the TEFL course you will be able to whizz by some of the city’s most important “mercados” to observe day to day life in full bustle.

Infrastructure in the city of Guadalajara is very good. While you are in the city you will find many of the commodities that you find in any developed economy. Your experience here will be culturally enriching but not culturally shocking.Nightlife is very vibrant in Guadalajara.

In either case, we carefully screen potential housing options to make sure that they are not only safe and comfortable for our students, but, that they will enhance your experience here.

- Homestay Accommodation:  Private homes are available if you wish to experience life with a Mexican family, and take even more opportunity to practice and develop your Spanish.

- Inns, Hostels and Hotels

Teaching English in Mexico:
There is a huge demand for English speakers with a good command of the English language to teach children and adults. Mexicans study English in school but unfortunately don't get the opportunity to converse with native English speakers.

There are many exciting locations in which to teach throughout Mexico, from beautiful beaches and colonial towns, to traditional mountain villages.
