Teaching positions, grade levels Pre-K up to 8, open in Ethiopia, in Gondar and Addis Ababa. Ethiopia is experiencing a growing boom in primary education, as well as at higher levels. Ethiopia's national languages (Amharic which is spoken throughout Ethiopia, Tigrignya, Oromiffa, Guraginya, and dozens more) are the languages of Ethiopia, with no colonial legacy or full introduction of languages with bigger international applications. Therefore, English is become the language of higher education due to the necessity of accessing a full range of international literature for higher education students and academics. Young students who are privileged enough to learn English are usually the only ones who gain access to higher education. Therefore...

Ethiopia needs qualified and dedicated English teachers to be a part of this accelaration of quality education standards in Ethiopia. English teachers are highly needed to give our students a base in a language to allow more access to world wide information and education.

Although you will earn a salary, and accomodations, which are very comfortable by local standards. We are looking for bright, energetic applicants who see the opportunity to be part of an opportunity to participate in a capacity building effort to advance local education from the bottom, up.

Below you can read feedback from an ITTT graduate regarding one section of their online TEFL certification course. Each of our online courses is broken down into concise units that focus on specific areas of English language teaching.


I learned that past simple is about past action in a definite time, past continuous is about action that continued in the past moment, past perfect indicates which action was done before the other, and lastly past perfect continuous is talking about longer action in the past. I was amazed by how delicate English elaborates the past tenses. It also refreshed my mind by re-learning what I learned in the past.This unit is very beneficial for teachers. It shows the different factors involved in managing a classroom well. Every little thing is considered to ensure best learning results for the students. The arrangement of the classroom, the teacher and student talk time, the way to deal with difficult behaviour of students are all tackled and learned. I will definitely be looking back at this lesson in the future.
