EF currently employs some 27000 individuals around the world in their quest to offer quality teaching and learning experiences to people all over the world. Teachers for EF English First are highly dynamic, motivated, responsible, and passionate about teaching. We have found that this combination of attributes leads to the best learning environment available to both our teachers and students.

EF is looking to fill ESL teacher vacancies in Asia. Teach English as a foreign language in either China, Indonesia or Russia at one of our many locations. If you have experience being an ESL teacher or simply are looking for that first ESL teaching position, you should feel confident in choosing EF as your employer. Confident that we can provide you with a safe and satisfying experience to fulfill your TEFL dreams.

Teaching English abroad is never a dull experience when you join the EF team. Beyond the classroom, EF teachers have a rich social life including fun and cultural activities. Our Teachers Life Club makes meeting new people and experiencing new activities an ongoing process. They assist with your transition into the new country, help you get accustomed to your new life, and plan events for you and your friends as the year goes on. 

EF offers English learning to individuals at all stages in life. This means that those who become EF teachers will have the opportunity to teach either adults or children depending on your preferences. Many of our teachers remain with us for so long because of the wide variety of teaching positions available within our organization. After completing a contract in one location, many teachers choose to relocate to another EF location. For example, an ESL teacher in China who spent one year teaching in Shanghai may choose to relocate and teach for EF in Beijing. Other teachers may choose to stay in the same location but switch the age group they teach.
