WHAT DO I NEED TO KNOW?
When you're teaching English overseas, it's in a 100% English immersion environment, so you can work anywhere because you don't need to know the local language first.
You can teach in some countries without a college degree, as long as you’ve got your TEFL Institute certification and are a native/fluent English speaker.
Once you’re certified, you can find a job and start teaching right away, or you can choose to get your certification now and decide later where you'd like to teach.
TEFL Institute-certified teachers can expect to make competitive wages and a reasonable standard of living in their host country.
Need information about a country? Have questions about course options? Our seasoned advisors – people who have lived and taught overseas themselves - are happy to talk with you. We’ll help put your mind at ease because we'll give you the inside scoop on what it's really like to teach abroad, and what you'll need to know to make it happen.
