Welcome to World-TEFL.com, the online magazine of The WorldTEFL project. We're here to be the who, what, where, when and why of TEFL and English teaching in Europe, Asia, Latin America and North America. An online magazine with reviews, stories, location reports and resources for English teachers and TEFL trainees alike. As you will see we're still working on the site, the layout, graphics and most importantly the content. We're almost live, not long to go now...
There really is a never ending amount of work going on here, we're going to get heavily caffeinated to try and see what we can accomplish as 2016 dawns.

The Life Of A TEFL Teacher
You got it. Lots of personal stories about people who took the leap, choose to take a TEFL course, and then head out into the wild to teach English. Some stayed for weeks or months, some fell in love (literally and figuratively!) and became TEFL course teachers or founded schools of there own. Some traveled the world, learning about different cultures, sampling local beers, and bringing smiles to peoples faces as they went along, while others some were just too overwhelmed by not knowing if those cute little kids are actually swearing at them in Korean. The TEFL journey is a dynamic one, and your about to get your first taste.
Everything is new right now. We are featuring Barcelona as a TEFL course and English teaching destination, and have a host of funny, incredible, and enlightening articles about experiences in the TEFL world shared by readers just like you who had that spark of inspiration to get up and go.
Here at World-TEFL, we don�t think you need to see endless photo-shopped students "just like you." You don't need articles on what its like to travel in Barcelona - only to realize halfway through that it's copy-paste from WikiTravel. You definitely don�t need to scroll through countless one line blurbs about the joys of the TEFL experience. Our TEFL magazine is about real people talking about real life adventures and sharing quality information you won't find anywhere else.
Cheap flights from the UK, warm climate (and beaches!), culture, history, a cheaper cos of living and plenty of Spaniards who need to learn English to increase their job prospects. Its the perfect storm, creating a mega destination for the TEFL community. TEFL courses, ESL schools, and a whole TEFL subculture awaits you.
We've already had many people asking which TEFL courses we're selling or which TEFL school this site belongs to. The answer is none and none. We're totally independent, we don't run courses, we don't sell courses, and we have no partners, owners or family members who run TEFL schools. We're a dynamic online TEFL magazine giving you cool information about the unique worlds you're about to explore. Its the real life, real work, real fun part of TEFL.
In depth articles and analysis on TEFL in Paris and France are on just around the corner.

Yep, it's confusing. With all the different Acronyms and course options, you never know exactly what is being featured or talked about. Ok, lets break it down. TEFL stands for Teaching English as a Foreign Language. Its a popular gig for gap year students, sabbaticals revellers, and those running away to join the circus. Read on for the complete survival guide to understanding the TEFL lingo.

The WorldTEFL Project is the proud sponsor of The ChristianTEFL Project which aims to inspire people to teach English with a special focus on uplifting and caring for those they teach. Even if you're not a Christian it's quite acceptable to use the network of missions, NGOs and charities to find the place where you can do some good and help others.
Sorry, your not going to find any place to sign up and do our TEFL course. That's because we don't run TEFL courses (and we don't pretend to either.) We're just here to talk TEFL. What you might find are links to schools or programs we've mentioned, and that way, if someone or something strikes you as interesting, if you with you can speak with them directly.
We're looking to speak to teachers, both fresh on the job or longer of tooth, to hear your perspective and experiences teaching English around the world. You can send us your story, or we can set up a time to do a quick interview and you can leave the article writing up to us.
