Travel the world in 2018 with a CELTA/TEFL qualification

We often hear people say that life is not a rehearsal, so if you are interested in doing some travelling, changing career, taking early retirement, or learning about other cultures, now is the time. One of the best ways to see the world while at the same time earn some money is by teaching English. "As a teacher of English abroad, you can immediately immerse yourself in a culture and get to know the local people without having to speak the language of that culture," says Mary Grennan, director of International House Galway. "Of course, you will have the opportunity to learn the language too while you’re there, which is wonderful. You can also teach English here in Ireland in a language school or even in your own home — it’s a great cultural education, and great fun too."

Travel the world

Teaching English as a foreign language, or TEFL, is a popular choice among graduates who want to go travelling or people wishing to change career. "The most recognised TEFL qualification in the world is the University of Cambridge CELTA," says IH Galway director Mary Grennan. "The CELTA was the first ever TEFL course. It’s been in existence since 1962 when it was designed by the founder of International House, John Haycraft, so there’s a lot of history and intellectual knowledge there. Unlike other TEFL courses, CELTA tutors are highly qualified teacher trainers and each course is externally assessed by a nominated Cambridge assessor, who comes to the centre to assess each course we run. This makes the CELTA a highly reliable qualification that schools and universities worldwide can trust. For this reason, 87 per cent of the English language teaching positions advertised around the world request the CELTA qualification – and no other one."
