New Year, New Career? Teach English Overseas in 2019
As the clock struck midnight on the first day of 2019, was one of your resolutions to change your career? If it was, you might want to get qualified to Teach English Overseas – and our TESOL course is the first step.
Whether you’re a recent graduate on a gap year or have been in the workforce for years, our 4 week intensive TESOL course is for anyone wanting to escape their mundane 9-5 office job and travel the world to Teach English as a Second Language. After completing the teacher training course, you will graduate with a Trinity Cert TESOL Certificate, qualifying you to teach English anywhere in the world.
Here’s why we think teaching a foreign language (TEFL) makes such an amazing career:
You can travel the world
TEFL allows you to travel anywhere that your heart desires. Whether you want to teach in an English-speaking country like the United Kingdom or Ireland or dive head first into a new culture and way of life in Japan, Brazil or Italy, this career will literally take you places. And the best bit? You can move as often as you please!
You’ll be fully-qualified in one month
Some career changes require you to study for years or undertake low paying internships for months on end, whereas within one month, you can be an English language teacher with a worldwide recognised qualification!
You’ll be needed
English is often referred to as the Global or Universal language, with 1 in 4 people in the world speaking a useful amount of English and an estimated 1 billion people worldwide that are currently learning English. All of this means that no matter where you choose to teach English, there’s usually a demand for English language teachers with no signs of this slowing down anytime soon.
You don’t need any previous teaching experience
That’s right! You don’t need to have stepped foot into a classroom environment as a teaching professional in order to qualify to take part in the course. After the 4 weeks, you’ll have all the practical skills and knowledge you’ll need to take on your own class and make a success of it.
You can escape the desk life
If you struggle to sit at a desk staring at a computer screen all day, teaching may just be the perfect career choice for you. You’ll be constantly moving around that you’ll wonder how you could ever have worked in an office in the first place!
You’ll be making a difference
Arguably one of the best things about being an English language teacher is that it’s a very rewarding career. You’ll be able to see the fruits of your labour pay off as you watch your students improve day by day.
