"How soon before I’m teaching abroad?"
Eager to pack the sunscreen and flip-flops? Well, the great news is you could be applying for jobs in as little as three months.
We find most people take four to six weeks to complete the online course. You can complete the classroom course at any point, it's totally up to you. Normally once people have passed they start applying for jobs straightaway. As soon as you find the perfect job, chuck your passport in your backpack and call a taxi to the airport!
"How much grammar will I need to know?"
Don’t let worries about grammar put you off. You’ll be teaching conversational English and we’re sure you’re already a natural when it comes to talking.
So if grammar leaves you cold, don’t sweat; you can still be a great teacher.
"How long will it take to complete?"
Most people complete the course within four to six weeks but if you need a little more time, that’s no problem. You’ll have access for 10 weeks.
The beauty is, you can work at your own pace.
"Will I get feedback?"

After submitting your work, it will be checked by our experienced TEFL tutors and you’ll receive great feedback and support as you’re progressing.
"Where can I teach abroad?"
Anywhere where English isn’t already the first language. That’s a lot of places! So hit Google Maps and pick your dream destination. You could be there sooner than you think!
