International Justice Mission is a human rights agency that brings rescue to victims of slavery, sexual exploitation and other forms of violent oppression. We have volunteering opportunities in Cambodia and Thailand for TEFL certified teachers who are available for 10 month contracts starting in June or September of this year. IJM lawyers, investigators and aftercare professionals work with local officials to secure immediate victim rescue and aftercare, to prosecute perpetrators and to ensure that public justice systems - police, courts and laws - effectively protect the poor.

The ESL fellowships will involve most of the following responsibilities. Other relevant duties will be assigned by the Field Office Director or supervisor.

•           Assess the individual language needs of the staff;

•           Design an ESL framework that significantly increases the English proficiency among key IJM leaders and staff;

•           Implement the designed ESL program including one-on-one tutoring and general staff programs;

•           Design and conduct a baseline, midline and end line assessment to measure progress; and

•           The project should be replicable in other field offices where English proficiency is lacking.


Critical Qualities, Experiences or Skill:

•           Bachelor’s degree;

•           TEFL/ TESOL Certified, or equivalent;

•           At least 1-3 years of experience teaching English as a Second Language;

•           Excellent oral and written communication skills;

•           Flexibility, sustained positive attitude, ability to work well in a cross-cultural team; and

•           Experience designing and/or developing ESL curriculum/programs preferred but not required.

Duration: 10-12 months, starting June or September 2014

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.


This unit is interally dedicated to the introduction and teaching of phonetics and phonology, an area of study of the English language that proves very tricky and often rich in obstacles. Different from the last two units the 13th units is long,extensive and rich in details. All necessary information is presented, explained and illustrated through examples and teaching suggestions to the reader.Good day, I found this unit's expository text somewhat help; I might consider using it as a reference or a source of material. I think the phrasal verb section needs a rework; however, I do like the active and passive sections. I thought those were simple and clear. The Modal verb section appears to be okay. Definitely check out the phrasal section - that was somewhat confusing. Thanks again!
