What is TEFL? TEFL stands for 'Teaching English as a Foreign Language' and is a necessary teaching qualification if you want to teach English abroad. Most paid teaching jobs abroad require that you take a TEFL course, usually a 120 hour qualification, which will equip you with all the teaching skills you'll need to teach English as a foreign language to kids in other countries.
TEFL courses can be taught in-country as part of a paid teaching programme, or can be completed online before you travel. Asia is one of the most popular destinations to do paid teaching work, and if you gain your TEFL qualification you can head out to teach in exciting Asian countries such as Thailand, Myanmar (Burma) or South Korea. Our paid teaching programmes all include a TEFL course, so you can start paid teaching, earning money and inspiring kids as you explore new countries abroad - amazing!
