Teacher Testimonials

Ricky Dagnell

The greatest thing about teaching in Indonesia is, of course, always the students. It is a genuine pleasure to engage and share with the students, especially being from such a different culture.

Matthew G.

I knew EF as a company before I even started looking for a job. You see EF schools in the UK. Having the idea of a big international company, you feel more secure & confident about all the benefits you get.

Rob H.

It’s very rewarding to see how students change and develop over time. You can see the children grow up physically and also ability-wise. It’s really amazing to be able to journey with them and see how they get to improve .
