Australia is a booming destination for study abroad English courses. Students come here for between 2 weeks or a year to immerse themselves in the environment to improve their language. This could be short study trips, or pre-university courses. Australia has epic scenery and enjoys a laid-back lifestyle. Whether you want the surf culture of Bondi, the iconic sights of Sydney, the European charm of Melbourne, Queensland’s sunshine capital Brisbane, or the northern hub of Darwin, being based in Austrailia offers you a world of possibilities.
Taking your CELTA at one of our schools in Australia, Thailand, Vietnam or China means you are right in the heart of this region to start your TEFL career.
My TEFL story started when I was teaching at a newly opened language school in Surabaya, Indonesia. I was bowled over by the CELTA course, still the best I’ve ever done. Really full on but a definite thumbs up!
My advice for new teachers? Follow your heart, go, see and learn about the world!
