How Much Money Can You REALLY Earn When Teaching English?
Hi guys, my name is Linda from ITTT, nice to see you again. If you can see me and hear me just say hi in the comment section, it would be really nice. Yeah, back this week with another exciting topic, how much money can you really make teaching English? Very interesting topic as we all need to know how much money we can make if we want to go and teach English abroad. I'm also going to cover how much money you can make when you teach online, so very important topics that we are covering today.

As always I've prepared some visuals for you guys and I am going to make myself smaller and the presentation a little bit bigger so everybody can see that and read it. So here we go, as I already mentioned and as you probably know from the title we are talking about TEFL salaries and how much money you can really make. So what I'm gonna do is go over different regions, I've split it up by continents so we're going to talk about all the different continents and regions inside the continents, if that makes any sense. I'm also going to cover where the highest salaries are in the world. So we're going to jump right in and as always feel free to ask questions. Write them in the comment section and I will answer them. There will also be some time at the end for a Q&A session where you can also ask your questions.
First I always like to introduce myself to people who are new here. My name is Linda, I am on the one side a travel writer and content creator under the name Linda Goes East, because I have been living in Asia and I have a passion for Asia. I have lived in China and in South Korea and I'm still in Korea, it's my sixth year here now. I'm originally from Germany/USA and you can find my personal website at lindagoeseast.com and on social media at Linda Goes East. So if you're interested in Asia specifically, teaching, living, traveling in Asia, check that out there is some useful information for you there. You can also message me, I know a lot of you guys have messaged me before and I'm so grateful to connect with you, it's super interesting and I'm always happy to answer your questions one-on-one.
I'm also a TEFL and TESOL marketing professional at ITTT, which stands for International TEFL and TESOL training. You can find us at teflcourse.net and also on Instagram at International TEFL Training. We are actually live on Facebook and YouTube at the same time, we also have Twitter, Pinterest, pretty much all the social media accounts. We do not have a Tick Tock yet, that's the only one that's missing I think. ITTT is a leading TEFL and TESOL course provider and we offer a variety of different courses for teaching English abroad. Like I said, you can get 30% off any of those courses with that QR code or the link that I shared in the comment section. I'm also going to share that again later so that everybody can see it.
All right, so that's enough about me, now we're jumping in and I would like to know from you guys where you would like to teach? Where are you interested in teaching in the world, or online, or would you like to teach online but move to a different country later? I'm super curious to know. I am based here in South Korea, it is 10:00 a.m. Friday morning and it's a little gray outside. I think it's going to clear up in the afternoon. I'm super excited as the weekend is supposed to be really nice and I have plans to go to Seoul. I live about an hour and a half south of Seoul and this weekend I want to go there to hang out with some friends. What about you guys, where would you like to teach? Let me know, don't be shy, let's start a conversation here. I know that some of you are interested in teaching English in South Korea, some of you are interested in China, and I think also people are interested in Europe. We did a live session about Europe last week, you had a lot of great questions about Europe so that was really fun.
Hi Brad, welcome back. I have a question from Clint, he asks how is dating there?
Well I wouldn't really know as I'm married to a Korean man so don't do any dating anymore. I actually met him before I moved to Korea so I never really did any dating here. If you want to talk about what it's like being married to a Korean man or other things like that you can hit me up on Instagram on my personal account and we can have a chat about that. So nobody has told me where they want to teach yet, don't be shy, it doesn't have to be one location, you can say I want to teach here or there or there, I haven't decided yet, I always teach online, whatever it is let me know.
Finally some answers. So Mahmoud says Australia. Awesome, I have never been to Australia but I really want to go. Gwen says I'd like to teach in Thailand or Vietnam. Yes, I would like that too actually, love those countries. Brett is asking what public transportation is like there, is it super cost effective?
That's a great question, I guess you mean in South Korea. It is super convenient, my city doesn't have a subway but most bigger cities do. In my city you have to take buses, but that's why I got a car and I like driving, especially in my city. I would never go and drive in Seoul for example because the traffic is just crazy, they have like 10 lanes and it's wild, so I wouldn't drive in Seoul. Seoul does obviously have a subway, they have high-speed trains and those connect to all over the country. I would say it is cost-effective, yes.
Gwen says, I'm open to other places too but I'd like to stay within Southeast Asia at the moment. Yeah, Southeast Asia is awesome and I am going to talk about that as well. So let's jump in, we have got some good stuff here. Oh, Brett has an answer, I’m still tied between Europe and South Korea. Cool, so maybe this live session today will help you make a decision based on the salary and how much money you can make in either place. Before we jump in there are a few things to consider when evaluating potential salaries. As you can see, there are five things here. Most importantly, what you need to consider when talking about TEFL salaries is the local cost of living. For example, a thousand dollars in France and a thousand dollars in Thailand are very different things. A thousand dollars in Thailand is going to get you more far than a thousand dollars in France, so the local cost of living is something that you need to consider when talking about TEFL salaries.
Also, the benefits included in the contract. For example, a lot of countries and schools offer additional benefits. You would have your base salary, but then you also need to consider all the other benefits that you might have. Sometimes you get free housing, so that's a huge thing because in a lot of places housing makes up almost half of your salary potentially. If you choose a destination that offers free housing then obviously you actually have far more from your TEFL salary.
Another thing you need to consider is your personal lifestyle. Do you like eating out a lot? Do you like traveling a lot? If so, maybe you need to choose a destination where you can earn more. Or perhaps you're happy with being more frugal like cooking at home, buying at local markets, eating local food, because typically local food is cheaper than buying western food in foreign places.
Then we have your personal skill set and your background. So the more experience, the more certifications you have, then your salary is also going to be higher. So that's something to consider. I'm also going to talk about how you can earn more money, and what you can do to increase your salary. You can polish your professional resume, you can add certifications and skills to your skill set, those are things that are going to increase your salary.
Then also the type of school or the employer because some teachers don't actually work for a school, they might work for a company teaching business English for example. Typically teachers either teach at public schools, private schools, international schools, or universities. International schools and universities tend to pay higher salaries, so that's also something to consider.
Juliana says, I would like to teach English online but I'm also interested in Japan and South Korea. Awesome, I'm going to talk about those countries as well today. Gwen also has a question, this isn't exactly about today's topic but do you have any insight about non-TEFL teaching qualifications as a requirement to work in certain places?
We actually talked about this in a previous live session. I think it was the one about teaching in 2021, things you need to know. So what some countries have done, and I know China has done it, is they require an additional paper and I think it is called the pnc letter. Because they do not allow people to come in now, they suspended all tourist visas, so they require this additional paperwork which is sort of like an invitation letter. In a lot of countries either you have to prove that you have been vaccinated or have a negative test, things like that are additional things that have come about because of the pandemic. Other qualifications might be if you are a non-native English speaker, then they might want to see English proficiency certifications. We also talked a little bit about that last time I think. So my co-worker Liza knows a lot about that, she's getting a cambridge certificate, she's getting ready for that, so those are things for example that might be non-TEFL teaching related qualifications that they require now.
I think when we talked about teaching English in Europe I mentioned that to join the TAPIF Program in France you need to have French language skills. You have to submit a French proficiency certification, things like that. But those are very specific, so it's going to depend on what kind of program or employer you apply for.
Allain says, I follow you and all your platforms, they are really magnificent. Great, thank you, that's awesome. Nikki says, are the borders in Thailand or in other Asian countries open?
I think I heard that Thailand is open to vaccinated people, that's what I have heard but I think you still need to quarantine. I'm not sure so don't quote me on that. I think Thailand is opening up and vaccinated people can travel to Thailand. I actually looked into that the other day because I was wondering what places in Asia I could travel to and it's not many, especially because I'm not vaccinated yet. It’s not many options at the moment without quarantine, I think the only one was Dubai. But yes, we need to keep up to date, so check official resources as I'm not 100% up to date on that information.
Now let's jump into the first region that we're going to talk about in terms of salaries. So first up we have, how much can you earn teaching English in Southeast Asia?
I always put as you can see the cost of living in the first place, because that's something that's very important to consider when it comes to TEFL salaries. Southeast Asia is this region, so countries like Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Malaysia. Typically, the Southeast Asian region has a low cost of living compared to back home for example. Salaries are typically up to $1,500 per month, although there are some instances where you can make more. The salaries mentioned are what is typical for first-time teachers with little to no experience, so keep that in mind. Obviously the different countries also have different salaries and I have a paper in front of me where I wrote down some salaries for specific countries and I can let you know what the range looks like.
Extra benefits like paid housing and paid airfare are not common in Southeast Asia, but some employers do offer that so it's going to depend on the school that you apply to. Okay, so here are some countries specifically. I have three that I can mention. In Thailand the range is about $800 to $1,000 a month. In Vietnam it is $1,200 to $2,000, although the upper range is for people who have more experience and maybe higher qualifications and things like that. Then we have Cambodia with $1,000 to $1,200 per month. These figures might not sound like much, but you need to consider again that the cost of living is low. $1,000 is going to get you far more in Southeast Asia than in East Asia for example. There is a big difference which is why I split up Asia into two parts because Southeast Asia and East Asia are very different in terms of salaries, cost of living, and benefits.
Gwen says that for international schools in Malaysia she has seen salaries ranging from $1,500 to about $2,500 and other benefits vary a lot.
Like I said in the beginning, international schools tend to pay higher salaries, but there're also not that many of them and they're harder to get into. You would have to have a bachelor's or even a master's in English or in the subject that you're going to teach. You also need to have some experience and things like that, so the salaries that I mention are for just regular people with a bachelor's degree or not even a degree, no experience, just fresh off the boat. With salaries it's always a little bit hard as they obviously vary a lot from school to school, country to country, place to place.
International schools are quite competitive to get into and that's also something I talked about before, you would need to build your network. I mean some people are lucky and if the qualifications are right they can get in. But typically I think that during your first year of teaching English abroad you want to use it as a time for making connections and building a network and that kind of also happens naturally. You don't really need to go out of your way and attend conferences or meetups or something. That's great too obviously but it's going to happen naturally because you're going to meet other teachers and they know other teachers and they know other schools and employers. People are always leaving, they go home or they go to a different country, new positions come along. That happened to me a lot where people are like, oh my school is looking for a new teacher, are you interested? I was even offered a university job, someone was leaving and they thought I would be great for the position. That's how it typically works and that's a thing with international schools. I think that you would have to build your network and then you can probably get into an international school after a couple of years.
Now let's take a look at East Asia.
These are countries like Japan, South Korea, China, and Taiwan, so these countries are right here. The cost of living is moderate to high in most places, especially Japan. In this region salaries range from $2,000 to $2,500 for new teachers and up to $3,000 or more for those with experience. This region is also great for all those extra perks and benefits. So you generally get paid housing, paid airfare, health insurance, and usually an end of contract bonus.
In South Korea you also pay into the national pension scheme and when you leave you get all that money back. Depending on how long you have stayed you should get back at least a couple of thousand dollars which is great if you're moving to another place or you're moving back home and you have this start-up capital to take with you. That's why East Asia is such a popular region because the salaries are quite high and the benefits are so great. Most of the time you don't have to worry about rent as that's taken care of by the employer. Also, airfares and things like healthcare, at least in Korea. I also know that other countries in East Asia are pretty similar.
I have some things written down here for salaries in specific countries. For example, in China you can make between $1,000 and $2,500 per month. Japan is even higher, between $2,200 and $5,000. But the cost of living, especially in Tokyo, has increased dramatically and it's not the number one option in East Asia anymore because of that high cost of living. Taiwan is between $2,000 and $2,500 and Korea between $1,600 and $2,600 a month.
We have a question here about Japan. Yes, the cost of living is quite high but I would say it also depends on where in Japan you are. If you're in Tokyo the cost of living is very high and people usually live in very small apartments that cost a lot of money each month. But if you live in a different part of Japan it can be very different.
That’s right, South Korea and Japan are considered to be the Asian tigers with booming economies, absolutely. Those countries are great for teachers, I highly recommend it. I've been in Korea for a while and you can make really good money here, you can save a lot of your salary, so it's definitely worth coming here.
Moving on to the next region, we're going to focus on the Middle East. So how much can you earn teaching English in the Middle East?
Here the cost of living varies but it is typically rather moderate and the salaries are between $3,000 and $5,000 per month or even more. The big thing here is that salaries are usually tax free in most countries, so you don't pay any taxes on your salary. That's what makes the Middle East the highest TEFL salaries worldwide. So it’s a great place if you are after money, but it might not suit everybody's lifestyle and preferences. Typically you'll also get extra benefits in the Middle East like paid housing, paid airfare, health insurance, and an end of contract bonus.
Gwen says, please tell us about Egypt. What are the typical TEFL salaries in Egypt?
I couldn't find that much actually, because the most popular countries in the Middle East are the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Oman, and Kuwait. Those countries are really popular and I think Egypt, not so much right now.
I have another question. Can you please give the top three countries to teach English in Southeast Asia.
Sure. So definitely Vietnam and Thailand, those are the two big ones in Southeast Asia. Then you have countries like Cambodia and Laos that are emerging right now, but you're not going to make that much money there. However, the cost of living is very low, so I would say those are the top four at the moment. We also had quite a lot of job offers maybe two years ago from Myanmar, but maybe that's not a place where you want to be right now unfortunately.
We have one person now interested in the Middle East, Brett. That's cool, very interesting. I would also be super interested especially in Dubai as it looks like such a fun place. I'd love to live there for a year, that'd be really fun. I mentioned that before because I did a live stream about the best places to teach English abroad in 2021 and Dubai was on that list. I think I have got the number wrong now but something like 80% or 90% of people living in Dubai are expats, that's so high, that would be a great place to be.
So the next region we're going to talk about is Europe.
A lot of people want to go to Europe. I was born and raised in Europe, I love Europe as there is so much history, all the different countries, different cultures, it's great. But the cost of living is very high, especially in countries like France, Italy, Spain, Germany, Switzerland, it's insanely high and the salaries are quite low at around the same level as East Asia. Also, as you can see here extra benefits are not common. You're not going to have free housing, you're not going to get paid airfare, typically there is none of that. So this makes Europe less attractive for teaching English abroad. A lot of people still do it but it's not a place that you want to go if you want to save money to pay off student loans or whatever. Salaries are very broad in range here, between $700 and $2,400 a month. It depends on the country, even the city you are in, the type of school you are at, all of those things.
I wrote down some countries and salaries. When we talk about Europe we usually recommend the Czech Republic which is a great place to get a work visa even as a non-EU citizen, because their laws aren't as strict as many other countries. In the Czech Republic you can make between $700 and $1,200 a month. Prague is an amazing city and a lot of people go there. France comes in at between $1,000 and $2,000 a month. Italy $800 to $1,000. Spain $700 to $1,000. The good thing about France and Spain is that they have government-funded teaching programs that you can apply for. That's a great way to get in. I also wanted to mention Hungary and their teaching program. Hungary is another place that you can look at if you're interested in Europe, because Eastern Europe has a much lower cost of living compared to Central or Western Europe.
All right, we have a comment here. The best European state is Liechtenstein.
Magnificent, however, it's tiny. I actually have never been but it looks really pretty. I've seen pictures and it's not that far from Germany where I was born and raised. I probably wouldn't teach there personally, it seems like it would be very hard to do finance wise as the cost of living is so high.
Now let’s look at Latin America. How much can you earn teaching English in Latin America?
This is obviously a huge region but I did not find too many differences in terms of salary between Central and South America so I put them together. The cost of living is generally very low which is great, however, the salaries are also very low. So that's similar to Europe, it's not a region generally recommended to teachers who are looking for high salaries. But it is definitely a beautiful region with so much you can see and do there. That's why you need to consider what is your goal, what is your focus, are you looking for amazing landscapes, travel experiences, cultural experiences, what's more important to you? You need to weigh that up for yourself. Salaries range between $500 and $1,200 and extra benefits are not at all common. You're not going to get free airfare or free housing in most cases in this region.
Latin America has a lot of volunteer positions on offer. Salaries in Argentina range between $600 and $1,200 a month. Ecuador $500 to $1,000. Chile $800 to $1,200. Costa Rica $600 to $1,000. You should also consider that you do need to pay for your own housing and probably health insurance. You often need to figure that out by yourself, so it's a bit of a tough region finance wise. But it is obviously a very beautiful area.
Okay, there's one more left that we're going to talk about. Although, I should point out that I’m not going to mention Africa in this presentation because it's tough in terms of teaching English. Typically in Africa you find a lot of volunteering positions, but not so many paid ones. That's just how it is at the moment, which is why I haven't included it. It's not a region where you go if you want to earn a lot of money, it's a region where you go for other reasons, such as adventure and volunteering.
Okay, so the last one is, how much can you earn teaching English online?
Obviously in 2020 and 2021 the boom for online teaching has continued and there are now many different platforms out there. I have listed some here so we can get an overview because it's very hard to say you can make this much for teaching English online. Let me look at this comment from Marcia before we move on. So she says, unfortunately here in Chile the cost of living is too high. That’s interesting, so the cost of living is rising and then the salaries probably stay low so it's tough isn't it.
So back to online teaching. I know a lot of you are interested in online teaching so I have listed a couple of the most popular English teaching platforms and you can see the salary range here. I have personally worked at Cafe Talk, that last one right here in the list and I know my co-worker Liza has had a live session with one of her friends who's working at Preply, so you can check that out. So what the differences are is I think places like VIP Kid you basically work for them and they give you all the teaching materials and tell you exactly what you need to teach. Which is very different from for example Cafe Talk where you can create your own lessons, it's more like a marketplace where you put your profile up and you set your own price and then students can book your lessons.
So Magic Ears, VIP Kid, places like that have their set curriculum, you don't have any say in what you teach, you just teach what they tell you to teach and they have their set pricing. So it depends on what you're looking for in terms of teaching and then there's also the option of setting up your own teaching website or website where you advertise yourself as a teacher. Because with all of these platforms they are going to take a fee or a cut from your salary and that all varies from platform to platform. Liza did a live session about the individual platforms and she goes into detail on each of those, so if you're interested in teaching English online for platforms or on your own, check that live session out, it's in our playlist.
Okay, moving on now. Where are the highest salaries for teaching English abroad?
I have put up a list of 10 places with the highest salaries, also considering the cost of living. So coming in at number one is the United Arab Emirates with $3,500 to $5,500 a month and again that is tax free which is amazing. Those are the highest salaries in the world in the UAE. Number two is Japan at between $2,200 and $5,000 a month. However, the cost of living in Japan is really high at the moment, especially in Tokyo. So essentially Japan it's not quite as popular as it used to be. Number three is Saudi Arabia at $3,000 to $4,000 a month and I believe that is also tax free which is great. Next is Kuwait with between $2,600 and $4,000 a month. Oman comes in at $2,000 to $3,500 a month, but I'm not sure if Kuwait and Oman are also tax free salaries, I think they might be. I'm not quite sure about that but still they are very high salaries. Next is Taiwan at $2,000 to $3,000 a month and the cost of living in Taiwan is one of the lowest on this list.
Further down the list in 7th place is South Korea at $1,600 to $2,650 a month and you also get all those extra benefits in Korea which makes that a great destination. Then we have China at $1,400 to $2,200 a month. Followed by Hong Kong with $3,000 to $6,500. Now you're wondering as those salaries are so high why is it only at number nine. Well it’s because the cost of living in Hong Kong is so high and it's actually the most expensive city in the world at the moment. They came up with this new study that says that Hong Kong is the most expensive city in the world for expats to live, even though the salaries are really high, so that's why it's in ninth position. It's still a great place to teach though, I've known some people who taught in Hong Kong and they loved it. They got free housing and other bonuses so it worked out well. Finally, tenth place is teaching English online. If you do it right and you work full time, six, seven, eight hours a day, then teaching online can actually make a really good salary. So that's why I've put teaching online in 10th position.
So what do you think about that now after all this information, which place are you more gravitating towards?
Brett says, so much to think over now. Yeah, but don't think too much, you also need to go with your gut and just pick a place. I mean if you choose one place it doesn't mean you need to stay in that place forever. If you don't like it you can just leave and that's the great thing about teaching abroad. If you don't like it, you can just leave and get a job somewhere else.
Gwen says, I agree with Brett, I suddenly need to reconsider. Okay, but don’t forget that it is not all about the money, choosing a lifestyle you like is also important. Actually I have a funny story about that. My first year in Korea I was teaching at a private kindergarten and I picked that place over other job offers because it had the highest salary. But the working hours were longer and it was just really hell working there to be honest. It was not nice, so don't only look at the salary. I wish I had chosen a different school, made like two or three hundred bucks less and worked at a better school.
Just going back to teaching online. Starting to teach online is a great option right now because once we're back to normal in the world you will have plenty of teaching experience, you might even have some money saved up, so you will be in a great position to then move abroad to the country of your dreams. And you're also likely to start on a higher salary because you already have experience. So this is actually a really smart move teaching online at the moment, especially if you teach for a very well-known platform that is going to really boost your resume.
I forgot about this point, we still have this point to cover. How to enhance your teaching salary, what can you do to make more money?
If you are not TEFL or TESOL certified you will need to get that as there are a lot of countries where it is a legal requirement. And even if it is not, you are likely to get paid more for having one. If you are already certified you can get into specialized TEFL certifications. We offer the 50-hour Teaching English to Young Learners, Teaching Business English, and Teaching English Online courses, all of which offer greater opportunities for jobs and salaries. You can also get the Diploma in TESOL, which is an advanced level course. Basically, the more qualifications you have the more you can potentially earn.
You can also get some teaching experience before you leave home. We just talked about teaching online, but any sort of teaching experience is great. You can do local summer camps, even free tutoring in your community, those are all great things that are going to boost your resume and potentially give you a higher salary. What a lot of people also do, especially in regions like Europe and Latin America where the salaries aren't that high, is to take on private students to supplement their income. So you have your main teaching job, but then in your free time you find two or three other students that you can tutor privately. That's really great because you can set your own price and typically for private tutoring you can earn more per hour than in a fixed job. I have a friend who lives in South Korea and he only teaches private students and he makes $7,000 a month, because with private tutoring you have your hourly rate set really high compared to a base monthly salary.
Gwen says, I'm currently working on the young learner certificate, it's such a great way to begin learning some pedagogy for children. Yeah, that’s great. I also took that course and I also took the business English course and the teaching online course, they're all really great as they are going to boost your resume. I recommend it. Thanks for your input, awesome.
All right, now I'm going to mention the 30% discount again. You can scan the QR code or I'm going to share the discounted link again in the comment section so you can just copy that and get your 30% off. Then I'm going to take a few more minutes here to answer your questions and then I'm going to sign off, how does that sound?
I think this was a great session today, I hope you learned something. We had a great chat. I love seeing all the familiar faces. I love seeing that you come back every week, it's so nice to see that we are building our little community. Gwen says, thank you so much for everything today Linda, I'm so bummed that I'm not always free when you go live. That's okay, I love it when you're here and when we're chatting, and you can always watch the replays as they stay on the site forever.
Brett asks if the young learner certificate is one of the online courses?
Yes, let me share a link to that with you. Here it is and I'm going to add the discount code at the end of that url so when you click on it you're also going to get the discount. It's just going to take a minute, so here you go, this is it. So yes, that is an online course, but we do recommend that you finish your standard TEFL course first before you take that one because they sort of build on each other. Maybe once you are done in Rome you can do that one. I highly recommend it, especially if you're looking into going to Asia because most of the time you're going to be teaching young learners in that part of the world. Of course, the term young learners is very broad as it ranges from toddlers up to university students or high school students. That course really teaches you a lot about how to deal with children, how to motivate them, and how to teach them effectively.
Awesome Juliana, thank you so much for tuning in again today. Also Brett, thanks so much for tuning in. Hi Margaret, nice to see you again, thanks. Brett says, I also have my multiple subject teaching credential. Yeah, then maybe you can go ahead and take that course now if you already know the basics of teaching. That would definitely be great. Gwen says, my youngest student is three, we start very young here in China. That’s right, I also had a student who I think was three and it's really challenging teaching kids that young because obviously they're not going to just sit at the table and listen to what you say. I might do a live stream about teaching young learners in the future because it's really different from teaching adults. That might be really useful for people here.
Marcia says, thanks for everything. Thanks for your input too about Chile, thanks so much Marcia. If we don't have any other questions we can stop right here. We can sign off and go on with our day. As always you can watch the replay and please don't forget to like and subscribe so you don't miss any of our other upcoming sessions. Take advantage of the 30% off, it's a really great deal. We only share that 30% off during our live sessions and nowhere else. All other campaigns and events don't get that big of a discount, so you want to take advantage of that.
Again, thanks so much for tuning in today and I hope to see you again next week with another live session. I'm going to think about a topic, I might do another one like I did for teaching English in Asia and Europe. I might cover Latin America, not sure yet. We're also looking into having some guests from different places, so I think that might be really interesting. We'll see what we can come up with.
If you have any other questions, hit me up on Instagram or via teflcourse.net. You can reach out to us via email and inquire about our courses and different options and we can help you find the perfect course for you. Thanks so much for tuning in and I'll see you guys hopefully next time. Bye, bye.
