TEFL Jobs in Indonesia

TEFL Jobs in Indonesia

ESL jobs in Indonesia are in high demand due to being one of Southeast Asia’s most beautiful tourist destinations. But there’s more to Indonesia than just tourism. Indonesia is a country with a long and diverse cultural history, with people from all over the world settling, sharing their language, culture, food and religion. In recent years, foreign language teachers have seized the opportunity to carve out careers in a growing industry, establishing communities in some of the major cities like Jakarta and taking advantage of the travel opportunities.
As a second language teacher in Indonesia, you can benefit from career opportunities in a major city like Jakarta, or even find ESL jobs further afield in the lesser known towns and city. With EF, you can teach English as a foreign language to kids and teens, as well as adults, and still enjoy benefits such as competitive salaries and training opportunities.

TEFL Jobs in Russia

TEFL Jobs in Russia

According to the Russian Public Opinion Research Center, 92% of Russians surveyed consider English to be the most important foreign language to learn. However, according to EF’s English Proficiency Index (EPI), the country as a whole still isn’t proficient in the language. TEFL jobs in Russia, therefore, have increased in recent years to meet the demand, but this is still a relatively small market, with fewer year-round opportunities.
As a TEFL teacher in Russia with EF English First, you will be able to work on a legal visa, with training, support and a full benefits package. When you are not working, you will be free to travel around the world’s largest country and soak up the country’s unique culture and heritage.


It doesn’t matter where you would like to start a new TEFL job, you will receive full support from application to arrival from EF English First. After you submit your application, we will schedule a time to give you a quick call to understand more about you, where you would like to teach and which age group. From there, your recruiter will schedule an interview and guide you through the application process.
We know the first few weeks are really important. In these few weeks, you’ll need time to adjust, find a place to live and settle in. To help, EF will provide you with free hotel accommodation for the first two weeks while you find your feet. During this time, you will go through orientation and training, and we’ll provide you with the help you need to find a place to live.
