With job opportunities in the UK still difficult to come by, and student fees on the rise as of September this year, alternative career and study choices are becoming increasingly popular. TEFL (Teach English as a Foreign Language) courses are one of these alternative options that are growing in popularity and we have gathered the five best why reasons you should consider teaching abroad.
TEFL is not just an excellent opportunity to add experience to your CV, but a great opportunity to explore the world. Not only will teaching abroad mean you visit a country but it also allows you to fully immerse yourself into the local culture while helping to shape a part of the community there. You will meet a host of amazing new people teaching abroad and it can be an extremely positive experience. If you have a passion for languages, teaching and travel than a TEFL course may appeal to you.
