After a two-year industry slump, travel is finally taking off for South Africans. 

With Black Friday travel deals on the horizon, locals suffering from serious cabin fever can take advantage of more than just flight specials to kick-start their next adventure abroad. 

“For those planning an extended overseas stay, teaching English is a savvy way to earn an income while travelling and living abroad,” says Tom Gibbons, director at The TEFL Academy, SA’s leading provider of TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) courses and qualifications. 

“Once there, certified English teachers stand to earn a competitive salary of between R190 and R560 an hour, depending on experience.”

Gibbons says that “with local Covid-19 infection rates declining, travel restrictions easing up, and the rollout of internationally recognised digital vaccine certificates, an increasing number of international borders are opening to South Africans”.

Locals can now travel to at least 52 destinations abroad including Mexico, Brazil, Costa Rica and Ukraine, provided they can prove they have been fully vaccinated. 

So now’s the perfect time to get your English teaching passport to international travel — and with The TEFL Academy’s Black Friday Week Sale you can do so at a fraction of the cost. The company is offering huge discounts of up to 70% off its internationally accredited and regulated online courses up until November 25.

Each course takes about six weeks to complete, which means those who get started now will be fully-fledged TEFL teachers by 2022

Each course takes about six weeks to complete, which means those who get started now will be fully-fledged TEFL teachers by 2022,” says Gibbons. 

With local unemployment reaching record highs, teaching English abroad offers travel-hungry locals more than just a taste of adventure.

English foreign language teachers typically sign on for year-long contracts, which are open for renewal when they reach their end. This provides job stability and an opportunity to remain overseas for an extended period of time — or to change your mind and try a new country every year.

As part of its Black Friday Week Sale, the company has implemented a “Beat Any Price Guarantee”.  

“If you find a like-for-like TEFL course — either a 120-hour level 3 course or a 168-hour online course — with any other provider for a cheaper price, we’ll not only match it, we’ll beat it,” says Gibbons.

The TEFL Academy’s courses are an accessible, cost-effective and flexible way to get TEFL qualified. For more information, visit theteflacademy.com
