Inner Mongolia Internship

If you’re looking for an internship abroad, you’re in the right place!

About our programme

China is a favourite destination for teaching English, but there is plenty more to offer than Shanghai or Beijing. Cast your eyes to the far east and settle on land that is famed for its rugged and raw nature, one with a millennia-old indigenous culture and a people that will show you the real sense of nomadic lifestyle. Inner Mongolia is the destination that will change your life forever, enriching you with an experience few are brave enough to embrace.

Teaching English in Inner Mongolia is not for the faint-hearted. It is for voracious travellers who want to experience the world off the beaten track. Settle into this picturesque country and live life as a true nomad. The Helan mountains will become the backdrop to the unique and unforgettable journey of your lifetime, and sleeping in yurts will become your normality.

At the TEFL Institute of Ireland, we strive to offer teaching opportunities seldom found elsewhere. For those who feel their heart drawn towards the far east, talk to us today about teaching English in Inner Mongolia, and let us prepare you for the best trip of your TEFL career.
