TEFL Teacher Testimonials

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.

Vuyo J.

I’ve had the opportunity to work with local Chinese people, Americans, Brits, etc. It’s such a “United Nations” here. The cross-cultural sharing of ideas and strong work ethics has transformed me for the better.

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 .
