Thailand – March 15, 2016 – So you have decided that you want to be a TEFL teacher. Teaching is one of the noblest jobs in the world and if you are a TEFL teacher, you would basically function the same way a regular teacher does. This means you would have to prepare and teach lessons in a classroom setting, prepare exams, compute grades, and a roster of other teaching responsibilities.

One of the biggest questions about TEFL teaching is how one can successfully find an English teaching job abroad? If you are one of the people who are asking this question, check out the following tips below.
