TEFL, EFL, ESL, TESOL – there are so many acronyms and abbreviations in the field of teaching English as a foreign language that it is very easy to get confused. Then, just when you finally get your head around all the letters, you will be bombarded with the thousands of TEFL courses and TEFL course providers that are available to you.

Don’t put your head in the sand just yet, though, because we are here to give you a helping hand to figure out exactly how to become an EFL teacher and get the opportunity to work abroad that you have been dreaming of.

Here are our 6 reasons why The TEFL Academy should be your first and last stop on your quest to gain a TEFL qualification.

The TEFL Academy’s 120-hour TEFL courses are internationally recognised

The TEFL Academy specialises in accredited 120-hour TEFL courses which are recognised by EFL employers all over the world. Considering that you are probably hoping to teach English abroad, this is a non-negotiable.

All of our trainers are EFL professionals

Who better to learn from than those who have been teaching English as a foreign language their whole careers? Our TEFL trainers are all EFL professionals with loads of experience so they know what they’re talking about.

We offer a highly personable service and support network

Signing up to do an internationally recognised TEFL course is one thing, but completing a 120-hour online TEFL course on your own is by no means a walk in the park. With The TEFL Academy we are able to give you the support that you need to get you through the course with your sanity intact.

We have more global locations than any other global TEFL course provider

No matter where in the world you are you are likely to find The TEFL Academy 120-hour TEFL course close by or, if your itchy feet are ready to go, why not do your TEFL course somewhere you’ve always wanted to go – Cape Town, Barcelona or Perth?

We have more internship opportunities than any other TEFL course provider

The TEFL Academy offers a range of different TEFL teaching positions all over the world but we also offer internship opportunities and volunteering opportunities abroad. So, if you’re looking for something more short-term or something with not as much commitment, we can help you find it.

We have more jobs and job support than any other TEFL course provider

Finally, considering that you probably want to get a job and earn some cold, hard cash, it’s a good thing we have more jobs and job support than any other TEFL provider.
