Applicants who don't have prior teaching experience or a teaching certificate, may need to become TEFL certified to qualify for teaching positions in South Korea and China.
There are two ways of getting TEFL certified: Online or In-Class. Almost all schools in South Korea and China will accept and accredited online course when required. Some online courses also include an in-class component, which is a great way to practice what you've learned.
Our team has compiled a list of our favourite TEFL companies, offering both online and in-class course options. We've either taken the course ourselves or it has been recommended by our teachers. You can rest assured that all courses are accredited and accepted by schools in South Korea in China.
We recommend a course of a minimum of 120 Hours, as this will meet requirements for most online and public school options.
