“We are very proud to offer those who wish to become qualified to teach English abroad the opportunity to receive world class training and earn an internationally recognized TEFL certification in New York, one of the world’s great cities,” Jones said.
Curriculum for the course has been developed by the World Learning's SIT Graduate Institute and meets or exceeds the highest standards for TEFL training as set forth by international bodies like the British Council, and required by thousands of language schools and institutes around the world seeking to hire newly trained English teachers.
“An accredited, recognized TEFL certification is key for those who want to teach English abroad,” said Jones. “Our students need it to develop the skills to become effective professional English teachers overseas, and it is required to qualify for English teaching jobs around the globe.”
Participants will have the option of taking a four-week intensive full-time course, or part-time three-month classes in the evenings or on weekends.

A strict 6-to-1 student-teacher ratio is maintained and all classes incorporate live practice teaching to local ESL students.

All students also receive lifetime job search guidance to provide them with the resources and guidance necessary to gain employment teaching English abroad in Asia, Europe, Latin America and the Middle East. Graduates may also find opportunities teaching English in the New York metropolitan area, primarily in local private language schools providing English language instruction primarily to recent immigrants, refugees and foreign exchange students.
International TEFL Academy graduates gain employment as English teachers in dozens of countries around the world in a variety of language institutes, pre-schools, private academies and even public schools in countries like Japan, Korea and France.
In most countries, American English teachers earn a comfortable if modest living, but in some countries, particularly in Asia and the Middle East, qualified English teachers can often save thousands of dollars annually after expenses and may receive such benefits as free housing and airfare, free medical insurance, and paid vacation.
