TEFL stands for "Teaching English as a Foreign Language." It refers to the practice of teaching the English language to non-native speakers from countries where English is not the primary language. TEFL teachers are often employed in language schools, private institutions, public schools, and online platforms to help individuals improve their English language skills for various purposes, including academic, professional, or personal communication. Qualified English teachers can find jobs all over the world. This section is dedicated to TEFL jobs and courses, it also includes news and advice articles from practising TEFL teachers.

TEFL certification programs are available both in-person and online. Online TEFL courses are particularly convenient for those looking to pursue TEFL while studying from home. Courses cover various aspects of teaching English, including lesson planning, classroom management, language assessment, and teaching methodologies.

TEFL teachers work in a variety of settings, including private language schools offering English courses to students of all ages from children on kids camps to adult night classes. Some countries hire TEFL teachers to work in state schools to improve students' English. There are businesses that hire TEFL teachers to provide English training to employees.

Teaching English online has become increasingly popular, allowing teachers to work with students from around the world. Online is also a popular option for taking a TEL course and these are widely available.
