  • Bachelor’s degree in any subject

Get qualified to teach abroad with a TEFL certificate

Not all teaching jobs abroad require candidates to have a TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) certificate, but a lot of them do! Enrolling in a TEFL course, either an online course or a classroom based course, will equip you with the teaching theory and skills to feel confident in the classroom as well as meet the requirements for many ESL teaching jobs around the world.

TEFL courses will cover topics such lesson planning, classroom management, creating teaching materials and teaching grammar. TEFL courses can range from a week long, to a month or longer but in general a course with over 100 hours of instruction is necessary to get a good ESL job teaching English abroad.

Talking to Teachers

“I was a teacher in the UK and became despondent with the UK education system, a mundane and predictable social life. Now I live and work in Shanghai and would not want to be anywhere else.”
Robin Watts, Wall Street English Shanghai
“I had just finished university and was looking for something a bit different. Once I knew I wanted to teach English abroad the next step was completing the TEFL qualification.”
Liz Conroy, Nanhai Kindergarten
“Teaching English in Asia had always been on my list of things I wanted to do. I have had many friends who have tried their hand at teaching English at some point. All have had overwhelmingly positive experiences, many saying it was the most fun they ever had.”
Luke Bosworth, English First Chongqing
“I absolutely love Shanghai. As a foreigner, I can find everything I need and spend the day exploring new places and things. It’s a complete 50-50 mix of old China and new Western standards. I am so happy here.”
Janis, Starbugs Shanghai

How it Works


There are no costs at all for you. The entire recruitment process is free of charge.
Students expect to get immersed in English during class and so speaking the local is actually discouraged in class. So not speaking the local language is not a problem regarding the job. Schools usually offer their teachers complementary language lessons if they wish.
Your school will organise all the necessary papers needed to obtain a legal 1 year work visa for you. This process can take between 4 to 8 weeks and the school will help you through the process.
Your initial contract is 12 months. Many teachers choose to stay for one or more years.
The school provides comprehensive medical insurance coverage for you. It will cover you in event of sickness and injury.
Salary is paid on a monthly basis, paid in local currency.
Yes. It is possible to exchange and transfer money to bank accounts around the world. Check with your bank to find out what their policies are regarding international transfers and fees. Many people find Western Union or PayPal to be the easiest way to send money.
This depends on the type of school. For language schools the average class size is 10 to 15 students. For public schools the class sizes are generally 20 to 40 students per class.
There is a professional, smart-casual dress code that teachers are expected to comply with.
Yes. There are plenty of opportunities to be promoted to senior teacher, Director of Studies and higher, as well as jobs developing the curriculum and other positions.
