Jan and his experiences as an EFL teacher in Argentina

Jan and his experiences as an EFL teacher in Argentina

Hi, my name is Jan, and I was born in Norway 25 years ago. I finished my studies in Anthropology last year. However, I needed some freedom and new experiences before looking for jobs.

Are there any free TEFL courses for the unemployed?

Are there any free TEFL courses for the unemployed? The short answer is no. There are some TEFL volunteering opportunities where you go and teach English for an agreed term through an organisation. However, you will not get TEFL certified; you will not be paid for your time but may receive accommodation and food as compensation. Look at your TEFL certificate as an investment. Many organisations are willing to help you; go out and find them. Ask a family member, friend, or even your local benefits office if they can invest in you taking a TEFL course and making yourself more employable.

How many different English accents are there?

How many different English accents are there? English is the most common official language in the world, with recognised status in over 50 countries.

I don’t have a degree. How can I teach English abroad?

I don’t have a degree. How can I teach English abroad?

While many countries want their English teachers to have a degree, there are still plenty of countries where you can find work. If you don’t have a degree, don’t let that stop you from teaching English abroad! Many countries that will require a degree from their teachers can also overlook this if you have a British Council, internationally recognised and accepted TEFL certificate. The Trinity CertTESOL awarded by Trinity College London has been around since 1872, and that’s a good 150 years of reputation behind their certificate.

Clubs and discos don’t open until midnight and stay open till the wee hours of the morning!
