Registration Fees above include tuition, textbooks, and materials. Textbooks will be distributed during the first class meeting.

Classes meet on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3:30 to 6:30 pm at the Hecht House (634 West Call Street).



The program fee is $500. Registration is contingent upon successful completion of the 120-hour CIES-TEFL Certificate and thus must take place during a subsequent 7-week session. Session dates are the same as shown above for the 120-hour Certificate.

CIES-TEFL interns are required to assist their mentor teachers in class at least two days per week. A required weekly meeting with the TEFL Program Instructor for all interns also takes place at the Hecht House (634 West Call Street).

“CIES provided the training, experience, network I needed to prepare myself for my next jobs. The professionalism and expertise exhibited by the staff  have given me the capacity to plunge successfully into international education. I would recommend anyone who wants a realistic and informed perspective to take advantage of this program.”


“This program was by far the most fulfilling thing I did at FSU. The CIES feels like home to me and the TEFL class has provided me with such great teaching practice and experiences. Meeting and working with the international students here immediately filled what I felt was missing from my college experience. I would highly recommend this course to anyone interested!”
