If you have a yen to travel a TESOL career may meet you needs.

  • TESOL =  Teach English to Speakers of Other Languages

  • TEFL    =  Teach English as a Foreign Language

    There are two types of TESOL teachers.  Those with a 4 week certificate & those with a 4 year degree.

    Nearly half of new Tefl trainees hope to teach in Asia

    • A 4 year University TESOL Degree will allow you to teach in the US, Japan or Korea at up to $3000. per month ..  or more with success & experience.

      • The contracts for degreed TESOL teachers often include travel allowances, housing allowances and annual renewal bonuses.

    • A 4week TESOL Certificate will allow one to teach English as a Second Language in China, Thailand or Indonesia at a pay of between $400 & $800 per month no matter the experience.

      •  TESOL / TEFL 4 week Certificates are worthwhile only if you want to live in the 3rd World.

      • The Certificate TESOL teachers usually do not receive travel or housing allowances.

      • For the Certificate Schools, on line or on site, to be useful you must want to live in the Asian Third World as a middle income level local. 

        • Small apartment & a frugal life style.
        • An adventure into the local culture.  Living like a local on a local's wages.
      • TESOL Certificate holders teaching English in private schools often can supplement income with private tutoring.
