Our TEFL center in Indonesia is based in Surabaya, the country’s second largest city and the capital of the province of East Java. This exotic location on the Pacific Ring of Fire provides a great setting for your certification course, with stunning beaches, tropical jungle, ancient temples and huge active volcanoes all within easy reach. The city is also a major shopping destination offering several large malls, as well as countless local and international cafés, bars and restaurants. With a perfect mix of natural beauty, fascinating culture and modern entertainment, the city of Surabaya is a popular destination for TEFL training.
During your stay you won’t want to miss one of the most visited tourist attractions in Indonesia, Bromo Tengger Semeru National Park. This large park contains an alien like environment caused by several centuries of volcanic eruptions. The most famous volcano is Mount Bromo where you can hike to the top of the caldera and witness the awe inspiring scene below. Once you have completed the TEFL course you will find there are plenty of employment opportunities in Surabaya, the neighboring city of Malang and elsewhere in the country. Wherever you choose to look for work we will do all we can to help you get started on your EFL teaching career.
In addition to certifying trainees as TEFL teachers, we also offer worldwide lifetime job support so we can help course graduates find teaching work in Indonesia or anywhere else there is demand for qualified EFL teachers.

What travel documents will I need for indonesia?Expand
All visitors to Indonesia are required to carry a passport valid for at least six months after arrival date. Visitors to Indonesia from the United Kingdom, North America, Australia and New Zealand can stay in Indonesia for a maximum of 30 days on a tourist visa. Citizens from all other countries should contact their local consulate to obtain current travel regulations. Your local consulate can advice you on longer visa options. Post course your employer should provide you with a working visa once terms and conditions have been agreed.
What is the course schedule?Expand
Class time is generally 9:00am to 4:00pm, with mid morning and afternoon breaks as well as a lunch break. For approximately two weeks, you will be preparing to teach, learning all of the things you need to know in order to be successful in the classroom. For the other two weeks, you will actually be teaching each morning and preparing your materials in the afternoons.
What can I expect during teaching practice?Expand
We invite local Indonesian students for the trainees’ teaching practice. Indonesian students are very keen and enthusiastic and because we don’t charge them to attend, all students come to classes purely because they want to. We teach in our centre as well as in local schools and orphanages.
Who usually attends the course?Expand
Usually trainees from native English speaking countries such as the USA, U.K Australia etc but there will also likely be a few fluent non-native speakers on the course also.
Is there a dress code?Expand
During the input sessions from our trainers the dress code is casual and relaxed. While there is air conditioning available, it is hot and humid in Surabaya, so you will want to dress comfortably. Shorts, t-shirts, tank tops, and flip flops are the norm. When you are teaching as part of the course the dress code is smart and conservative. Your shoulders must be covered, and any skirt or trousers must cover your knees when you are sitting down. For women, be careful that your shirts are not too low cut or show your stomach as you may need to lean over to help a student sitting at a desk. Jeans and shorts are not acceptable. Men should wear a collared shirt, though short sleeves are fine. Shoes or sandals should be smart.
What should I bring for course studies?Expand
All course related materials and equipment is provided but when you secure work you may be asked to provide copies of your birth certificate, college degrees and transcripts. You might also consider obtaining an international driving permit if driving in Indonesia should be necessary for you.
