“I can’t tell you how much the coursework changed my life and made me feel more confident in teaching and working internationally. After a brief stint in Prague, I taught in Vietnam for the past year, and have recently signed a contract to teach English at an International School in Warsaw. The value of my time with you all in Prague couldn’t be overstated.”

Scott Benzenberg - Taught in Prague, Poland and Vietnam

What Kind of Positions are There for Teaching English?  

Upon successful completion of the TEFL Worldwide TEFL Course, you will be certified to teach English as a foreign language worldwide. There is a very high demand for TEFL certified teachers worldwide, so you’ll be able to start teaching English abroad right after the course.

There are many different teaching options to choose from. Positions vary from school to school. You can be teaching English to all ages and levels at a language school, or you may be teaching English for Specific Purposes (ESP). ESP includes courses like Business English, Medical English, Aviation English, Legal English or English for Young Learners. Many language schools worldwide have contracts with large multinational companies, so our graduates go on to teach in places like Coca Cola, Citibank, IBM, DHL, and many others! If you have any experience in a specific industry, you can look into teaching English for that industry.

Another option is teaching for English preschools, kindergartens, primary, secondary and high schools. There is a very high demand for teaching children. These days, parents are keen to start their children off early with the English language, as it’s much easier to learn when you are young. If you enjoy working with kids, you’ll find these options extremely rewarding. TEFL Worldwide also offers a Young Learners’ Worskshop, in addition to the standard Young Learners’ session that we give during the course.

Many of our TEFL graduates take on jobs with a language school, in addition to teaching English privately on the side. This is a fantastic way to supplement your income. It might take some time to build up your clientele, so we recommend getting to know the locals. They will spread the word to family and friends in no time! You can make business cards and flyers and post them around in popular cafes, companies, stores and schools. In addition, there may be local websites where you can post an ad offering your services teaching English.

Another excellent way to supplement your income is by teaching English online! There’s a huge demand for teaching English online. Several TEFL Worldwide graduates are doing this from all over the world and are earning a very good income, especially those that live in countries with a low cost of living.

Which Countries Can you Teach English Abroad In? 

In general, the demand for English teaching is on the increase so there are opportunities to teach English all around the world. Earning a TEFL Certificate through TEFL Worldwide and teaching English abroad is the first step to an exciting and rewarding adventure abroad.

Central Eastern Europe

You can easily find exciting English teaching positions all throughout Central/Eastern Europe. The demand for English teachers here is always increasing so you can be assured that you’ll find a job in this region. In addition, as many of the former Soviet countries have joined the European Union since 2004 or so, there is an increase in interest for learning English.

Western Europe

Western Europe is a popular destination to work. We have numerous contacts for private English language schools throughout this region, so you can choose from many exciting destinations such as France, Italy, Spain, Germany, and Portugal. It can be difficult for non-EU citizens to get working papers in Western Europe, (apart for Germany where it is possible for non-EU citizens to get a visa and job), but that hasn’t stopped many non-EU citizen TEFL certified teachers from going to these countries to teach. As mentioned above, Germany is the easiest Western European countries for non-EU citizens to work. Another way to be able to teach in Western Europe is to enroll in a language school to learn the local language. You would need a student visa to do this. The student visa will allow you to work 20 hours a week, which is considered full time teaching, and therefore you will earn enough to cover your cost of living. This is typical for France, Italy and Spain so you can check with their embassies about getting a student visa. You would most likely need to arrange the student visa before leaving your home country.

Asia

Asia has the highest demand for TEFL Certified English teachers. It’s quite easy to get a job there, especially in China, Vietnam, Thailand, Cambodia, Taiwan, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, and Indonesia. The salaries in Japan, Taiwan, Vietnam, parts of China and Korea are much higher than average English teaching salaries, allowing you to save or pay off bills.  Many teachers flock to these countries in order to pay off student loans and credit card bills. Indonesia, Thailand, Cambodia and Malaysia are very attractive regions for English teachers because of the exotic beaches and cities. The pay will allow you to live a comfortable lifestyle, but you will not be able to save so much.

The Middle East

Like Korea and Taiwan, a teacher can save a significant amount of money here, but some employers, primarily in Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, prefer that you have 2 years of teaching experience and sometimes a Master’s. It does vary from country to country though so we encourage you to apply to all jobs and see what feedback you get from the employer.

South America

There is a high demand for English teachers all throughout this region. Most employers here though, prefer that you are in the country for the interview, but once you are there, you’ll have plenty of jobs to choose from.

Job Guidance

Where would you like to teach English? Just let us know and we’ll provide you with contacts of employers and language schools worldwide. We’ll be here to assist you with this process and will provide you with all of the necessary information. Besides offering a professional and top quality TEFL training course we aim to find our graduates exciting teaching positions worldwide.
