Teach English as a foreign language with a TEFL Council accredited TEFL certificate.
Teaching English as a foreign language is the perfect way to travel the world, enjoy a fantastic adventure, and inspire the next generation – all at the same time.

We know what it is to feel the excitement and trepidation of embarking on this new adventure as we've been there! If you are nervous, don't worry, your dedicated personal online tutor is there to help you. Also, we provide you with all the training, tools and support you need to help you become a confident and inspiring teacher.

You can achieve your accredited TEFL certification in an accessible and affordable way, and you don't need any previous teaching experience. If you speak English fluently, you have everything you need to get started with the course and teach English abroad or online from home.

Our best-selling course is the 120-Hour Premier Online TEFL Course, but if you feel you would benefit from additional classroom time, we run regular
two-day classroom courses across the UK, Ireland and Spain.
It is our goal to give you the best TEFL experience, and we use our expertise and knowledge to provide you with an internationally recognised, award-winning and highly accredited teaching qualification.

What our graduates say
  • There are more countries on my list

    "Everything that I’ve learned over the past couple of years has helped me to become more confident, knowledgeable and also more relaxed as an English teacher. There are more countries on my list to visit and in which I’d like to teach English."

    Harriet, taught English in Spain and Mexico

  • Teaching English has given me so much confidence

    "Teaching English has given me so much confidence, not only living independently in a different culture to my own but talking with different people and making new friends. It’s made me more aware of just how much I’m capable of."

    Katie, taught English in Poland

  • I had no prior teaching experience

    "With no prior teaching experience, I completed the 120-hour TEFL course in September 2018 and immediately applied for jobs online, teaching English to Chinese children. That same weekend I was successful and booked in for an interview."

    Laura, teaching English online from France

  • How to travel while earning money?

    "A search on Google for “How to travel while earning money?” led me to ESL and the rest, they say, is history. I took the TEFL course, jumped on a plane to South Korea and started to lead a life that many of my friends back home were still dreaming of."

    Dan, taught English in South Korea, Spain, the UK and online

From Spain to South Korea, China to Chile, Italy to Indonesia, and everywhere inbetween; our course graduates have been there and done it.
