I’ve been talking to many people about how to best get started in Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL). For many, just thinking about traveling abroad, and working and living in a different country, is a bit intimidating. So read this post to learn more about TEFL – How to get started.
It’s not only the idea of teaching in front of a foreign class of students that a bit scary, but it’s also about saying goodbye to the familiar environment, working and living in an unfamiliar country, and getting used to a new culture and language. But if you feel confident and have enough knowledge of the English language, being the TEFL teacher is a great career.
When I think back some twenty years ago, I remember my own fears and that I nearly missed my plane when I traveled to my first job as a TEFL teacher in the hills of northern Greece.
