Date posted:2018-09-26 | Writer: EF English First Swara Group | Email: [email protected]

EF English First is a world renowned language institution, and we now have ten schools in our Indonesian group, with regular opportunities for EFL teachers. Our team will help you reach your full potential as a TEFL teacher; each school has a standardized induction program, regular training and observations, an extensive TEFL resource library as well as, of course, constant support from the Senior Teaching Manager and teaching team. All of the schools are equipped with the latest in teaching aids, materials and educational multi-media technology.

You could have the opportunity of working either in the faster pace of city life or in the quieter green suburban environment. The schools are located in North, South and West part Jakarta city, the outskirts of Jakarta and the neighboring city of Bogor. If you like city life we have EF Pluit, Tebet, Tanjung Duren, Puri and Cengkareng.

If you prefer suburb or outskirt of Jakarta, we have EF Bogor, BSD Tangerang, EF Gading Serpong and the newest one EF Tangerang City. Each area is unique and has varying features that our teachers enjoy living and working in. Between the ten schools there is an attraction for every professional teacher.

Indonesia is one of the most beautiful, fascinating and culturally absorbing nations in the world. As the capital city, Jakarta is a gateway to the natural and human treasures found throughout the islands. Jakarta is a busy metropolis, yet it is only a 60-90 minute boat ride to the Thousand Islands; a tranquil weekend getaway that’s a great place for diving and snorkeling with its vibrant coral reefs, or just to relax and sunbathe on the beaches.


We offer a comprehensive compensation package, which includes:

• Highly competitive salary allowing a comfortable lifestyle and travel within Indonesia

• Sponsorship of legal KITAS (work visa)

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 lesson can easily catch someone off guard. First I thought, I knew quite enough already, since I had started 16th unit. After few minutes of studying, however, I felt like a schoolboy. It is great to realize, of course, that there is much more to learn, so I am still encouraged to go on. Overall, this lesson is helpful and easy to understand. Thank you very much for the lesson.Learning about teaching is always very interesting because, especially with teaching a new language, there are a lot of methods to go about doing it. It's nice because every day for the students doesn't need to be a mundane repetition of what they did yesterday as there are so many ways to teach students vocabulary and language functions and help them understand the language better.
