What is a TEFL Digital Nomad?

Definition of a Digital Nomad 

(n) People who have the freedom to work from anywhere on the planet with an internet connection. 

In a nutshell, if you have a skill that can be used online to earn money, you can become a Digital Nomad. This means that, as long as you have a strong internet connection, you can work from anywhere – whether that’s from a beach in Bali to the coffee shops of Chiang Mai!

There are so many skills you can use to become a Digital Nomad that it’s almost impossible to write a description for it. However, what all digital nomads have in common is that they spend at least a few months of the year abroad, change their destinations frequently (usually every few weeks but can stay in one place up to 6 months), and earn a living working online.

How to use TEFL to live the Digital Nomad lifestyle

Teaching English as a foreign language (TEFL) online is one of the best and easiest ways to live as a Digital Nomad. With an internationally-recognised TEFL Course under your belt, you can set up working either with a language school or independently.

As with working in a classroom, you’ll still need at least 120 hours of TEFL training, so it’s best to complete a full Online or Combined TEFL Course first and add-on a Teaching English Online Course to get the best preparation for the nomadic lifestyle!
