How do I choose between a TEFL job or TEFL internship?
A TEFL internship is perfect if you’re a first-time English teacher looking for a shorter commitment (3-12 months). What’s more, you’ll be joined by other TEFL interns in the same boat as you – perfect for making like-minded friends and added support.
If you’re a more experienced teacher, a longer-term teaching position of 12 months or more can be best suited to you. Your work permit may cost you more, but you enjoy the benefits of being a local citizen in your new home. TEFL jobs usually come with a higher salary, too – bonus!
