We’ve done all the leg work here for you, bringing you world-class TEFL programs! Prices range from approx $1350 to $1910 USD depending on location. Also, keep in mind, that price doesn’t mean that some of the courses are better or worse. In the end it all depends on the prices within the destination country. In our blog we’ve collected examples of those.
It’s best to book early to reduce abroad costs! As the longer you leave it, the higher are the prices. www.skyscanner.net offers a whole month’s comparison, so you can choose the best day to fly according to your budget! There are those who also advise booking your flights on Tuesday or Wednesday, as prices tend to be not as expensive on those days.
TEFL Connect are the experts in visa requirements for each TEFL program. Costs do differ in each country and there are different requirements depending on the passport you hold. Even more so, the requisites vary depending on the state for the US citizens. Drop us a line and we’ll get the correct information to you for your program location, and the country you’re in.
We know everyone has differing tastes and expectations of accommodation, so we have a range of options in each country to cater for all budgets! From homestays to hostels, apartments to hotels!
