English language teaching in Indonesia is anything but ordinary. When you are not teaching enthusiastic young language learners and having fun in class, you will be able to explore this fascinating country. Indonesia is famous for its golden sandy beaches, natural forests, and wildlife. But there is more to it than that. While teaching in Indonesia, you can explore a variety of cultures across the many islands, as well as discover the countries rich colonial past and Southeast Asian history.

EF English First has over 77 English language schools throughout Indonesia, making it the largest English language provider in the country. Teaching English with EF will enable you to live near the rice paddies of Surabaya during the week, experience the beaches of Bali on the weekend, and explore the volcanoes of Mt. Bromo over the national holiday. Your Indonesian adventure awaits!
English Language Teaching Jobs
Most TEFL jobs in Indonesia involve teaching kids and teens or teaching adults. At EF, you will have the opportunity to teach young learners aged between 3 to 18, or adult learners aged 18 and above.Teaching kids and teens, or adults has its challenges, but it is also highly rewarding. Your students will vary in language ability no matter their age.

It doesn’t matter who you decide to teach; both jobs have benefits and rewards.
