If you have always wanted to travel the world, to see new and exciting places and to get paid for it, then you should consider taking TEFL courses in Southampton. TEFL stands for Teaching English as
a Foreign Language, and there are schools in Southampton that will, for a small investment, teach you how to teach others the English language.
To graduate, you need 120 hours of training, 20 of those hours need to be done in a live peer-to-peer setting with the remainder done online. Once you graduate from one of the TEFL courses in
Southampton, you have some really challenging questions to answer: Where in the work do you want to work?
You could teach.
"The key to everything is patience. You get the chicken by hatching the egg "
somewhere in Europe. English is unanimously regarded as the international language for business and the EU uses English as one of its three internal languages. Needless to say, the demand is high
both in the private and public sectors.
"The best educated human being is the one who understands most about the life in which he is placed."
The standard of living is good for teachers who are well qualified.
If teaching in Asia is your preference after you graduate from the TEFL courses in Southampton, then Hong Kong should be top on your list. English is taken very seriously there, and you will find no
issues landing a well paying part-time job. Japan also highly regards English, and many students who teach English as a foreign language will find employment as a teaching assistant at a Japanese
school, both private language schools and universities.
In South Korea, the demand for qualified TEFL teachers is extremely high with employers willing to pay top dollar for good teachers. Some will even cover the costs associated with getting to South
Korea and pay for accommodations. One reason the demand is so high in South Korea is that South Korea has a poor reputation among the TEFL community. Issues with exploitation of TEFL teachers has
made many leary of working there. Be careful and do your homework if you plan to work there.
At the opposite end of the spectrum, Taiwan is highly regarded as one of the best organised and regulated in the EFL industry. Finding work that pays competitively helping young students prepare for
exams that will get them into universities is abundant.
Thailand struggles with restrictions which prevents foreign citizens from claiming non-skilled jobs from native people, and so teaching English is one of the only ways to make money in the country.
The lifestyle in Thailand is highly desirable although salaries can be low. There have been some recent issues in Bangkok with foreign teachers and so you may experience some challenges getting a
work visa for Thailand. If you would like to teach there, talk to the school from where you took your TEFL courses in Southampton for help.
