Teaching English Abroad

Teaching English abroad will bring meaning and focus to your life as you help others improve their lives through language skills. You will help make the world a better place. How many job opportunities in today's world can say that?

If one word could describe the dawn of the 21st century, it would be "communication". And the primary language for that communication is English

There is a growing need and demand in countries all over the world to learn English. You can help meet that need.

TEFL Institute has over 8,000 alumni teaching English abroad.

Some have enriched their lives through the adventures they experienced and people they met in foreign lands, and then moved on to other careers.

Some have chosen to keep the English teaching profession as their primary career.

Some teach English abroad for a few years, go back home for awhile and work at other jobs, then teach English abroad again.

At any given point in time, your life is the result of all the choices you make every day. The little choices like, "Where should I go for lunch?", as well as the big choices like, "What career path should I choose?"

Every decision you make, no matter how small, ultimately determines the path you take through life. Each decision is a step in a specific direction. If you could go back several years and change just one seemingly small decision, you probably wouldn't be reading this right now

Adrianna F. describes her life-changing journey that lead to being a TEFL Professional Online graduate teaching in Spain.

Read the beautiful and moving account of her adventure to become an English teacher in Spain in her blog post just 8 days ago.

Here is a brief excerpt from that post...

"...All my life I have loved volunteering and sought out ways to help people because of the gratification that results from it. I realized that there I was helping Noelia, my 10-year-old student, who had gone from a very low level of English to being able to hold basic conversations with me. I never felt so proud. I realized in that moment that this is what I wanted to do, I wanted to be an English teacher..."

Adriana is one of over 8,000 English teachers that TEFL Institute has proudly trained and certified.
