If you've recently graduated from university, you may find yourself in a bit of a daze, thinking "Well, what now?" You're not alone - many graduates can feel a sense of aimlessness or uncertainty as they wait for adult life to begin.

The thing is, adult life doesn't just happen. You need to be the one to make it happen. One of the most popular choices for South African graduates is to teach English as a foreign language overseas. You get to travel and see the world, while also making money and accumulating valuable work experience. Let's take a look at how you can make this happen.

Journeys in Language: Teaching English as a Foreign Language

In order to teach English as a foreign language, you will need to complete a TEFL course (TEFL stands for "Teaching English as a Foreign Language"). A TEFL course will equip you with the knowledge and confidence required to be an effective English teacher overseas.

Here's what a TEFL course will cover:

  • TEFL theory
  • Lesson planning
  • Classroom management
  • Practical teaching tips
  • Teaching vocab and grammar
  • Creating a great learning environment
