EF English First can help you from application to arrival as you start your new adventure in China, Indonesia or Russia. Once you start teaching English as a second language, you will never look back.

What to expect as a teacher

It doesn’t matter if you’re a newbie or a veteran. When you arrive at EF we’ll do everything we can to make sure that you are ready to teach with our materials and step into the classroom. At EF everyone is passionate about teaching. We’ve worked hard to design a syllabus that our students of all ages love. As a teacher, you can also create your own warm-up tasks and supplementary materials to bring the class to life. It doesn’t matter if you are teaching kids, teens or adults, you can expect full support, continual professional development, and the qualifications you need to help you become the best teacher you can be.

Where can I teach?

One of the best reasons to teach English as a second language is that you can teach almost anywhere in the world and enjoy a rewarding job whilst you travel. EF English First currently has schools in three of the largest ESL markets. You can find a new teaching job in China, Indonesia or Russia.
With over 200 schools in 60 cities in China, you can explore the smaller, more traditional cities with a low cost of living. Or join us in one of China’s megacities where you’ll enjoy a mix of traditional life and modernity. Positions in Indonesia and Russia also offer great opportunities to travel, train and teach. If you’re looking for something more tropical, why not join us in the beautiful paradise that is Bali, or live the city life in modern, fast-paced Jakarta. In Russia, why not indulge in culture and art in ST. Petersburg or Moscow. It doesn’t matter where you decide to teach; together we will have fun, work hard and make memories that will last a lifetime.
