“I can’t tell you how much the coursework changed my life and made me feel more confident in teaching and working internationally.

The value of my time with you all in Prague couldn’t be overstated.”

English for Young Learners
Parents nowadays are keen to start their children off early with the English language, as it’s much easier to learn when one is young, there are more and more opportunities available to teach English at preschools, kindergartens, primary, secondary and high schools.

TEFL Worldwide also offers a Young Learners’ Worskshop, in addition to the standard Young Learners’ session that we give during the course.

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. The cost of living in this part of Europe is lower so it’s easier to get started here.
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 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.
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.
Where would you like to teach English? Just let us know and we’ll provide you with contacts of employers and language schools worldwide.
