Most anyone who speaks English well can be trained to “Teach English As A Foreign Language” through the well known TEFL organization.  TEFL Certification courses are offered all across the globe and usually require a 4 week commitment to study the course curriculum and do a bit of practice teaching.  This international program enjoys wide appeal to recent college graduates, retiring teachers, and in fact, any adult who has an adventurous spirit and the desire to share themselves and the English language with other cultures.

Koh Phangan ThailandWe’ve found one TEFL certification program that condenses the study course to two weeks, and throws in a whole lot of fun while they’re at it.  The World TEFL School is currently offering a two week TEFL course on the “Full Moon Party” island of Koh Phangan, Thailand. Koh Phangan is famous for their pristine beaches, exuberant backpacker population, and the full moon revelers who gather each month for one of the worlds biggest beach parties.  This unique program requires participants to complete a forty hour online TEFL course before arriving in Thailand for the 2 week onsite course.  And they offer two exceptional guarantees: a money back guarantee if you’re not satisfied with the program, and a guarantee of a paid job placement in Thailand upon completion of the Certification.  (Of course there’s probably some fine print and conditions, so you’ll want to check it all out at WorldTEFLSchool.com.

Now if Thailand is not your particular thing…  Fear Not – there are TEFL certification courses and teaching posts available in almost every country you would care to visit.  You might want to start with a visit to TEFL.com or do a search “teach English as a foreign language in ________ ” and insert the destination you’re interested in.

This is a great way to experience other world cultures on a very personal level, travel economically, expand your own resume, and meet some wonderful people along the way!
