TEFL opens a world of possibilities
A career in TEFL – teaching English as a foreign language – can open up a world of possibilities. There are hundreds of thousands of TEFL jobs around the world. You can travel and teach abroad, and have a fulfilling and rewarding career meeting people of different cultures.
What is amazing about teaching in TEFL is that you can travel the world without being fluent in the local language. With what other job do you get the opportunity to live and work in the country of your choice, regardless of whether you can speak their language?
"My TEFL story began with International House and CELTA. So far my career has taken me all over the world in various teaching, management and training roles with different organisations. I’ve worked on a project teaching “language for work” to oil and gas employees in Kazakhstan, an activity-based summer school in Northern Ireland, an education college in Myanmar, and most recently teaching Bedouin tribe teenagers and women in a remote part of Oman."
