TEFL TESOL Course Cyprus - Limassol

New TESOL Course Location Opening in February 2009
TEFL TESOL Course Limassol, Cyprus

Cyprus, at the crossroads of Europe, Asia and Africa, is situated in the north-eastern corner of the Mediterranean Sea. It is the third largest island in the Mediterranean after Sicily and Sardinia.

Significant historical personalities such as Alexander the Great and Cleopatra have connected their names with Cyprus. Aphrodite, the beauty and love Goddess, was born in Cyprus, and her name identifies with that of the Island (Kyprida). ΚΥΠΡΟΣ.

Lemesos (Limassol) is the second largest city of the island of Cyprus, situated between two ancient city kingdoms: Amathus to the East and Kourion to the West. With a population of less than 150.000 people, Lemesos is an ideal location for your TEFL course.

The city was greatly developed under the rule of Richard the Lionheart, after the destruction of Amathus in 1191. Many important antiquities, remnants of the Byzantine and Frankish eras, are found in the city of Lemesos, evidence of the city’s long history. Today Lemesos is the main port of the island, the centre of Cyprus’s wine industry, and a major tourist resort.

The city is also known for its lively Carnival Celebrations, the annual Wine Festival and the traditional and spontaneous hospitality of its inhabitants.

In the nearby mountainous regions within the district of Lemesos, one can visit picturesque wine producing villages, the cosmopolitan mountain resort of Platres, and the beautiful region of Pitsillia.

Besides the long list of historical landmarks and popular tourist sites including The Limassol Medieval Castle, The Kolossi Castle, The Carob Museum, Folk Art Museum, The Great Mosque, Sculpture Park, galleries, archaeological sites, and many others, Lemasos boasts of its beautiful, clean, sandy beaches which stretch along the long coast of Liamssol for more than 60km!

For the night-life lovers, Lemesos has also much to offer at the beck and call of every purse from local taverns, pubs, discos, theatres, cinemas, dance halls, cabarets, international and local cuisine, fish restaurants and many other social and cultural venues.
