Am I suitable for a TEFL course? Print

While there are no official pre-requisites to take the TEFL Express course, you do need to have a good command of the English language, both written and oral. We recommend that non-native English speakers are at CAE level as a minimum. If your English is not to a sufficient standard then you'll struggle to pass the course and secure a job as an English teacher. We always recommend that if in doubt, non-native English speakers should contact us for additional advice.

Do I need a degree to study with TEFL Express? Print

You don't need to be degree qualified to take a TEFL course but it will be useful when applying for teaching positions in certain countries like Japan and South Korea where a degree is required to qualify for the correct work visa. There are thousands of ESL jobs open to non-degree holders all over the world, check out a few of the popular destinations on our blog.

Different schools, different rules Print

When you start looking for teaching positions having gained your TEFL qualification, the exact requirements of each job you consider will depend on the country and school you're interested in. How you perform at interview stage is important as well as your credentials.

Which TEFL courses do we recommend? Print

The more time and effort you put into your TEFL training, the more you'll gain from it. If you're seeking a paid TEFL job its recommended to complete a minimum of 100 - 120 hours training. This will equip you with the skills needed to apply for job tops. Our most popular training courses are the 150 hour TEFL Essentials Course and the 150 hour Deluxe Online Training Course.

What are my options for upgrading my accredited TEFL qualification? Print

If you're thinking of TEFL as a long term career, we highly recommend the Cambridge CELTA programme. You can study 4 weeks full-time or take a slower part-time option. Completing your CELTA qualification equips you with a very impressive teaching qualification that all international schools eagerly welcome as well as those in native English speaking countries.
