TEFL stands for Teaching English as a Foreign Language but is often used to describe the basic-level certification qualifying someone to teach ESL.
You will need a TEFL before you arrive to teach English at EF, but we can help you complete a course free of charge.
TEFL courses offer teachers the chance to work with the fundamental knowledge of ESL and how to use the classroom to your advantage.
Teaching EF is not only an excellent way to see the world and enjoy new experiences, but also a great way to develop and progress professionally. One of the best ways to do this is to enroll in one of EF’s teacher qualifications courses.
EF offers a broad range of teaching and management-related qualifications to help you succeed and advance in your career. Many of our courses come with sponsorships and many others are free. These qualifications will help you develop the skills you need to climb the ladder within EF or teach anywhere in the world.
EF Teachers have an infectious spirit. Whether it’s helping a student pronouncing new vocabulary or exploring their city, we all embrace the enjoyment and spontaneity that comes along with working abroad. Teaching abroad with EF gives you the perspective and confidence to help you reach your goals.
