Our students will need to leave mornings available to study, plan classes, and/or teach practice classes. However, it is possible to take Spanish group or private classes during the first two weeks of the TEFL course. Vamos TEFL is a very intensive program, especially as we approach the second two weeks of class. We generally advise our students that you keep the last two weeks of the course commitment free!
