FAQ - Teaching English Courses

Why take up a TEFL Course?

Once you’re TEFL qualified, the doors open to a whole world of amazing work and travel opportunities. With exciting online and classroom options packed with interactive learning, it’s nothing like going back to school, and this certificate is recognised by schools and employers all over the world. Working with a dedicated TEFL tutor, you’ll receive personalised feedback and guidance to make sure you feel totally prepared when it comes to teaching abroad.

Do I need a degree to teach English overseas?

In short, it depends where you want to go. There are some countries where you can’t secure a visa without a degree, but there are also loads of countries where a degree isn’t required.

I don’t have any teaching experience, can I still teach English overseas?

Of course! Teaching experience can be beneficial in finding work, but it’s not essential. What really matters is that you’re keen, open minded, ready for adventure and have a good understanding of the English language (non-native speaker? You’ll need to show what you know).


Will I need to speak the local language?

No, you won’t need to speak any language apart from English in the classroom. There will be plenty of opportunity to learn the local lingo once you’re there, and you might even be able to bag some free lessons.

How long will it take me to finish the course?

Again, this depends on you. The 120 hour online course usually takes about six weeks, but we give you three months to complete it, so you can fit it around any existing work or study commitments. If you choose a combined course, the classroom section is taken over a weekend- just pick a time and place that suits you.

Are there any eligibility requirements for the TEFL courses?

Anyone can do a TEFL course regardless of whether you are a native English speaker. If English isn’t your first language, call us or find your local store for more information.
