Doing A TEFL course can change your life in a weekend! Have you always wanted to travel and see the world and be able to make money while you’re doing it? Always wanted to learn about another culture? Then it sounds like A TEFL course could be the thing for you. Here are just some of the amazing things that being a TEFL teach brings. 

Earn money while you travel! 

Many of us want to travel the world, but there’s no denying that it’s expensive. When you’re a TEFL teacher, you can travel the world and get paid to do it! Of course it’s not a holiday, but with average working week being 20 hours for an English teacher, and plenty of school holidays, you’ll have ample opportunity to explore the world and not break the bank while you do it. 

Experience another culture. 

One of the most rewarding things about being a teacher in another country is the cultural experience. Even though it’s possible to get shorter contracts, most last for one academic year, which is just less than twelve months. This means that you get to experience the place like a local. Discover the gems that tourists don’t know about, become familiar with the history of a country and learn about the customs practiced by local people. 
 
Learn a language. 

Learning a language can be a challenge, and it should come as no surprise to find that it’s a much easier thing to do when you live in the country. Not only do you get to practice it with locals on a daily basis, it’s also much more motivating when you get to use it more than once a year on vacation. So no matter if you’ve always dreamed of learning Spanish, Thai, or even Japanese, becoming a TEFL teacher and you’ll also be a linguist in no time at all. 

Make lifelong friends. 

When you teach English as a foreign language you’ll be surrounded by loads of people who have the same interests as you. You’ll meet colleges from the UK, Australia, America, Canada and many more places besides; many schools will now accept teachers who’s  native language is not English, provided that they are of native level. When you live in another country, these people become your friends and family, and even when you leave, you’ll stay in touch for a lifetime and share the memories you made together. 

Dive into the world of TEFL, become an English teacher, and explore the world and all the exciting opportunities, adventures and memories that it has to offer!
