Guide to popular TESOL destinations worldwide

With a good TESOL qualification under your belt, English language teaching posts can usually be found in any of the countries listed below.

A question we're often asked: which course should I do to teach in...?

Whilst we'd always recommend our higher level courses, you can still have success with a Level 1 (70hrs) or Level 2 (150hrs) programme. We've provided a rough indication of which course we'd recommend as a minimum for each of these popular destinations. Please note: this information is intended as a guide only: there are no absolute rules for teaching in most countries.

Additional information (such as which countries require you to apply for a work permit) will be added shortly.

Getting in touch with schools overseas

There are several methods of contacting overseas language schools. You can select a country in which you wish to work and write to a number of schools having obtained a list of names and addresses from the embassy.

There are also many web sites featuring overseas jobs.

Teaching Practice

It's always better to have some teaching practice before jumping in at the deep end. Our Advanced Certificate programme includes 2 weeks of observed teaching practice.

The year-round warm climate of Gran Canaria, our excellent partner school there and a whole slew of new special offers on flights make the destination very appealing.

Jet2 are advertising flights to Gran Canaria for just £9.99 now so this is a great opportunity to get qualified and maybe even take a holiday afterwards...
