The Best TEFL Jobs in the World

Updated 29 October 2016

Over the years I've collected a number of job adverts and heard about good schools through the grapevine. While I check a lot of job sites, most of the jobs come from Dave's, the Guardian, the Chronicle, HigherEdJobs, and LinguistList. I've kept them in Word documents and I emailed them to friends or posted on Facebook. I decided to publish them online so that everyone can access them and I can easily update them.

In addition to helping people out there are other reasons why I made this list. You can also see how I chose these jobs and why I chose money as the top criteria. All of these jobs were chosen for TEFL teachers, meaning that they should not require a teaching license or a PhD.
