Find English teaching jobs abroad

Need to find English teaching jobs abroad?

If you do, then our find English teaching jobs abroad article is for you.

Before getting into the meat and potatoes of the process, I have to comment on differing perceptions of success. I just read an article posted by a competitor showing the success story of someone who went to train and teach in Barcelona. Out of professional courtesy neither the competitor nor the teacher are named.

The student has been in Barcelona for more than one month after graduating. She only has six hours of work that she picked up from someone who she met by accident and was leaving. She is still not working for language schools and is still sending out CVs trying to get more hours. She is earning about half of what is needed to survive in Barcelona.

From EBC’s perspective, this is a failure story. The student is more than one month past finishing the course, has a woefully inadequate income, and has the additional pressure of continuing to look for jobs on her own.

EBC knows that looking for work on your own is not easy. This is the reason why EBC manages the job process for you so you get working asap without all the headaches of finding schools and sending CVs.

You are in the country where you want to find English teaching jobs

If you are in the country where you want to teach abroad, look for jobs locally.

To do this, you will have to look in the local yellow pages and newspapers to find schools.

You will then have to contact each school either by email or phone to find out to whom you should send your CV/resume.

What many job seekers end up doing is walking the streets and dropping off their CVs/resumes in person in the hope that they will get lucky. This is the best way to make any language school think that you are a “backpacker” teacher.

The entire process is laborious, time-consuming and random. You may get lucky, you may not.

This is a great place to get your TEFL certification. The staff is kind, organized and very helpful. It was such a comfortable learning environment that I enjoyed very much. I liked the personalized attention and I got a lot more confidence and experience to be an English teacher. Thanks for everything!

I found the instruction throughout the course to be very effective and I finished the course feeling excited and prepared to begin teaching. There is nothing fancy about the EBC facility, however this doesn't in any way reduce the overall quality of the course. John, the instructor, has extensive experience (both as an TEFL teacher and a TEFL course trainer), which is evident in the thoughtful organization of the course. My class had only five students, which created lots of time for personal attention and advice. Make sure you come prepared to work hard!

The course has been really useful and the teacher, John, made the classes so much fun and very interesting. It is has been a great experience and has helped me realise how much I really enjoy teaching. It has also been a bit intense at times but I would recommend this course to anyone who would like to become an English teacher.

Class of August 2017.It's been a busy stressful 4 weeks but I am happy the group and I have all made it and we have TEFL certificates to show for all our hard-work and sleepless nights. Much thanks to our trainer John for his patience and ability to find solutions and guidance to help you find your way and energy throughout the course. EBC international is the best place to learn and share your knowledge of teaching. And for people like me who has no idea how to teach things like grammar and also to learn the grammar...this is the place to be!
