Types of English Courses

You will have many options open to you after finishing the course

Young Learners

Typically age 5 - 12. Teaching young learners can be fun and rewarding, but needs a lot of energy. Find out about our Young Learners extension course here.

Teens

These courses can sometimes be challenging, but can also be very rewarding. You will need to keep the lessons fun and entertaining to maintain students' focus.

In-company

This is where you teach English to business clients, usually in their own office. Typically small groups or one-on-one. It can be general English or ESP (see below).

Post Secondary

These courses are usually for students who have finished high school but need to improve their English before going to university. Typically intensive 1-year study.

English for Specific Purposes

Or ESP for short, includes courses such as Business English, Medical English and Legal English. If you have experience in a certain field, you can specialize in this type of course.

Individual/One-on-one

Many teachers teach private individual lessons in addition to working for a language school. These courses allow you to really focus on the individual needs of the student.

Online Teaching

This option is increasing in popularity. It is often more convenient for teachers and students. It eliminates the need to travel and can fit around other commitments.

Summer Camps

Many language schools organise summer camps, combining learning English with other activities. They can be for local or international students. Usually accommodation is provided.

Top Countries for Teaching English Abroad

With a TEFL certificate from TEFL Worldwide, you can teach all over the world. Here are 8 top countries in which to teach according to multiple sources.

China

With over a billion citizens, you can see why there is a high demand for English teachers. Although the salaries aren't the highest, the cost of living is low in many cities and often accommodation is included as a benefit. Therefore, it's still possible to live quite comfortably and still have money left for travel.

South Korea

South Korea has been seen as one of the top countries to teach English for some time now. With high and growing demand, high salaries and often good benefits, it's easy to see why. Downsides can be a negative work-life balance and the capital Seoul doesn't have the cheapest cost of living.

Japan

Japan has some of the highest salaries for English teachers, but the cost of living is also a lot higher than other countries. You will need a BA degree as well as a TEFL certificate to teach here. With beautiful nature, bustling cities and a unique culture, Japan is a great place to live and teach English.

Vietnam

With a great work-life balance, you will often be working a lot less than the typical 9-5. Vietnam is known for its friendly and relaxed culture as well as beautiful countryside and beaches. Salaries here may seem low, but so is the cost of living, meaning you'll still be able to save some money for travel.

Spain

One of the most popular places to teach English in Europe, this sunny country offers a good work-life balance and laid-back living. The country's cities are rich with history and culture. Although the salaries are not the highest, you will have enough to get by and time to enjoy the cities and beaches.

France

With its medieval cities, alpine villages, sandy beaches and world famous wine, France has something for everyone. Although it can sometimes be easier to find English teaching work for British or Irish citizens, work is still available to citizens of other English-speaking countries.

Czech Republic

Of course the Czech Republic has to be on the list. Although we are a little biased, the Czech Republic features on a lot of lists of "best places to teach". To find out more about living and teaching in Prague and the Czech Republic, head over to the Live and Teach in Prague page.

Columbia

Boasting Caribbean coastlines, stunning landscapes and top-notch coffee, Columbia is an up-and-coming destination for EFL teachers. Having put its dark past behind it, with safety concerns diminished and an increase in demand for English teachers, Columbia has begun to appear on many lists of top countries to teach.
