Interested in Teaching Abroad? Here’s What You Need to Know

Traveling to Bangkok

Picture this: You are living in the bustling metropolis of Bangkok, enjoying city life during the week and visiting some of the world’s most beautiful beaches on weekends. Or maybe you are living in Buenos Aires, your most difficult decision choosing between wine farms or ski resorts for your holidays. 

If you are a native speaker of English or can speak English at an advanced level and you are interested in meeting people from all over the world, discovering new places, changing people’s lives and, of course, earning money, then you should have a look at teaching English as a Foreign Language.

Teaching English as a Foreign Language (or TEFL, as it is more commonly known) is a way for ordinary people to live the life they’ve always dreamed of living but never thought possible. 

The TEFL Academy understand this and want to make it easier for you to start living the life of your dreams. They are a hub of information, knowledge and know-how on teaching English as a Foreign Language – and they’re more than happy to share their research with us in their new World Factbook 2021. 

If you’re looking for a change or a new start and this sounds like something you want to do, then have a look at doing a TEFL course. A TEFL course will prepare you to teach English as a Foreign language in any situation. Even if you have no experience in a classroom, a good TEFL course will give you a solid foundation in theories of learning and methods of teaching, as well as an understanding of English grammar.

Learning Languages

Once you’ve got the certificate under your belt, you can start dreaming about where you want to go first. Considering that there are around 200 hundred countries on this planet of ours, it’s understandable if you don’t know where to begin.

Well, The TEFL Academy has got you covered with their World Factbook 2021: a teaching abroad guide for over 100 countries! Each country profile covers everything you need to know about living and working in that country – from average pay, living costs, working environments, weather conditions and even local foods to try. 

Understandably it’s a tricky decision deciding where to go – not impossible, just tricky! But here’s a crazy idea. 

Why not teach English as a Foreign Language online? Then you can travel and teach without worrying about finding a job or contract commitments. Instead, you can feel comfortable knowing that no matter where you are you will have a job.


All you need to do is sign up with an online company and wait for the students to come to you. They will book specific days and times with you and you just have to make sure you have a reliable internet connection, a good laptop and headset – and you’re A for away. Sometimes you may need to prepare your own lessons but many times the company will provide all the materials you need. And you just need to show up and smile! 

Winning. At. Life.
