South Africa TEFL intern Craig on the beach in Cape Town Over the two months I have had an unbelievable time, easily some of the best experiences of my life. But there will be one thing which stands out amongst all of our meals, treks, activities, teaching, and mini adventures; some of the best moments over the last two months were made or made better by the people we spent them with.

South Africa TEFL intern Rachel Walker abseiling in Stellenbosch I never want to leave and you can’t make me! Each day that has passed I have fallen more and more in love with South Africa and felt more and more at home. Friendships have grown stronger, the weather has got warmer and teaching has got easier.

South Africa TEFL intern Megan with two of her students at school in Cape Town I couldn’t have asked for a better end to my adventure in South Africa, and would recommend any South African teachers to take part in the Kruger trip. You will see breath-taking sights and animals which you may not ever get a chance to see again! A once in a lifetime opportunity!

Overview

No degree or teaching experience required!

Immerse yourself in the diverse country of South Africa – help students improve their English in the week and hit the beach in your downtime. If this sounds up your street then our South Africa TEFL Experience is for you. You’ll have our full support from the moment you book and the orientation weekend lets you get to know your fellow interns (or should we say future friends?) Based in the seaside town of Fish Hoek, you’ll be assisting the teachers in the classroom and providing one-to-one support for the students. Although English is spoken in South Africa the ability levels vary so you’ll need to bring your A game with exciting and new teaching tools.

Spend your free time outside the classroom taking full advantage of the outdoor activities, from surfing to trekking Table Mountain. If you fancy it (and who wouldn’t?) you can add on the amazing Kruger safari trip. A 3 day experience far from the norm – you’ll camp in the bush, enjoy traditional braai cooking and spot incredible animals like elephants, giraffes and lions!

Day 2 - 4

Welcome to South Africa!

Learn about local life in South Africa in your 2 day orientation, where you’ll also take a guided tour around nearby Masiphumelele Township.

Teaching in South Africa

Day 5 - 57

Your teaching experience

Now it’s time to get teaching! You’ll catch public transport (multi people taxi) from the teacher house to school. During your teaching week, Mondays to Fridays will be spent assisting the teachers in the classroom – the childrens’ abilities will vary massively as there are eleven national languages of South Africa! As English is relatively widely spoken, lessons will usually be conducted in English. A lot of work will be on a one-to-one basis helping students, and acting as teaching assistant helping out with a full class. At breaktimes you’ll be supervising play, and afternoon lessons will often consist of games, sports etc.

Your evenings and weekends are yours to enjoy – there are loads of things to do and see in South Africa. Enjoy the fantastic food and drink wherever you turn and the gorgeous landscapes, beaches with countless outdoor pursuits waiting to be explored.
