EFL teacher Katie in Poland

Teaching English has given me so much confidence

"Teaching English has given me so much confidence, not only living independently in a different culture to my own but talking with different people and making new friends. It’s made me more aware of just how much I’m capable of."

There are more countries on my list

How to travel while earning money?

"A search on Google for “How to travel while earning money?” led me to ESL and the rest, they say, is history. I took the TEFL course, jumped on a plane to South Korea and started to lead a life that many of my friends back home were still dreaming of."

I had no prior teaching experience

"With no prior teaching experience, I completed the 120-hour TEFL course in September 2018 and immediately applied for jobs online, teaching English to Chinese children. That same weekend I was successful and booked in for an interview."
