These are in no particular order.
|The TEFL world is waiting…|
1) tefl.com I’ve spent many a time browsing jobs on tefl.com. In fact, this website is one of the reasons my TEFL adventure went as far as it did. Once you register as a job seeker you can upload your CV along with a photo and even a video clip if you wish. You also get access to an updated city cost guide which is very useful to plan before making that plunge. Have a look at the job centre, career planner, and career centre pages. If you’re interested in managing your own language school or becoming an ELT agent then check out Business Listings section. Photo by epsos.
2) i-to-i TEFL jobs board is new to the TEFL world and is becoming really successful. You can find teaching jobs in Asia, Europe, The Middle East, and The Americas. There’s loads of useful information about job types and who tefls as well as a section for employers. Check out the TEFL Blog which is full of tips, advice and stories on TEFLers lives.

There’s a great ideas page with different lesson ideas from teachers all over the world. If you’re into forums, then Dave has plenty on his site.
