TEFL jobs and courses
Teaching English as a Foreign Language (Tefl) is a truly great way to live and work abroad and can often lead to a fulfilling and challenging career. It allows you to really get to know a country; its people, culture and language, in a way that other forms of travelling rarely do. It is still an expanding industry and allows you to find a job in most areas of the world, but undoubtedly the best way to increase your chances of employment is to become tefl qualified via one of the courses on offer.
