So who are we then?

We are a bunch of like minded TEFL tasters…we have been there and done it ALL. Well, almost! The tantalising world of TEFL seduced us all and it is what we all have in common as it’s the one thing that we are all passionate about having done it ourselves. We can tell you stories and give you the low down on the good, the bad and the ugly so that you know exactly what you are signing up for with TEFL.

TEFL teaching is the type of training that will take you all over the globe. It keeps on giving with lots of different opportunities from online teaching anywhere in the world and one to one tutoring to general English classes in Spain or perhaps exam preparation classes in Thailand? Where to go and when is up to you!

There is a whole wide world of teaching positions out there waiting to be explored in locations like Spain, Malta, and Germany to Abu Dhabi, Japan and Taiwan. Not convinced, nah me neither but maybe our team here can convert you:
