Why Teach English Abroad 

Teaching English abroad will broaden your horizons while you gain valuable life and career experience.

  • Do you want to travel to exotic locations?
  • Are you looking for a job that is exciting, challenging, and in high demand?
  • Can you work well living in a new and unfamiliar environment?
  • Are you looking for a way to earn money and enjoy new experiences at the same time?
  • Do you want to pay off your student loans?
  • Do you wish to gain a new perspective on life?


Thousands of our graduates have been satisfied with their decision to teach English as a Second Language (ESL), earn money, and travel the world.

Employers look favorably upon individuals who have taken the initiative to go abroad and work in a different country. Younger graduates without extensive prior work experience discover upon their return that teaching overseas opens doors to job opportunities that were previously unattainable. Graduates who are planning to continue in the education field find that their overseas teaching experience becomes a valuable asset when applying for education degrees.

Why Get Certified 

As the desire to learn English has increased, so too has the profile of the people who teach it. The number of qualified and experienced English teachers has grown with this rise in demand. As a result, a much higher proportion of job-seekers than ever before are certified to teach ESL, and language schools around the world are becoming more selective when hiring instructors.

If you decide to relocate overseas to teach ESL, you have to be fully prepared to do so, and one of the easiest ways to ensure that you are prepared is to get your certification. Not only does this make finding teaching jobs much easier, but certification also gives you peace of mind. Obtaining your certification tells potential employers that you are prepared and serious about teaching, and you are taking your employment with their school seriously.

Why Take Our Course 

At the moment, I'm in China teaching English at a private training school in Kunming. Admittedly, almost all the ideas and strategies I use are taken from teachings at the Oxford Seminars TESOL/TESL/TEFL course. For the past few years, we have been seeing a huge financial crisis all over the world. However, with the TESOL/TESL/TEFL certificate from Oxford Seminars, I am enjoying a stable income as well. This is a very exciting and challenging time for me and Oxford Seminars was most helpful and patient.
