Teaching Abroad - TEFL Certificate Online - Backpacking - Earn money while travelling

What does TEFL stand for?

TEFL stands for Teaching English as a Foreign Language and it can sometimes be called TESOL, which stands for Teaching English as a Second Language. TEFL is a qualification that will enable you to work as a teacher, teaching English abroad.

Getting a TEFL qualification is one of the most popular ways to work abroad and get paid for it. When I was backpacking, most of the travellers who were working had gained this qualification so they had a way of earning some money, as and when they needed to. Most people obtain the qualification before they left for travelling but don't panic, you can always do the course after you leave if your plans change and you want to gain the certification while you are on the road.
