The Makassar International School (MIS) requires experienced and motivated TEFL qualified teachers for English, as well as other subjects, to join our small and friendly team.

We are a Cambridge-accredited international school providing quality English-medium general K-12 education to a close-knit student body of varying nationalities and backgrounds. Our small classes and eclectic timetable and curricula provide opportunities for professional development in a wide range of new teaching contexts and styles in a comfortable setting.

We offer excellent conditions including ..

A monthly salary of $US 1000 net
Free accommodation (or the option of an added monthly accommodation allowance).
8 weeks annual holiday
Flight contribution of up to $US 1000
All visa and work permits provided.

Makassar is a thriving coastal town with an exciting mix of the modern and the traditional, a picturesque sea-front and famed for its maritime history and great sea-food. Our working week of Monday-Friday 8am-4 pm, free weekends and frequent term breaks provide a great chance to experience the wonders of both Sulawesi and Indonesia, from the mountains of Toraja and the diving in Manado to the beaches of Bali (only 1 hour flight away).

Our minimum requirement is a bachelor degree and a recognized TEFL- cert qualification. A state-school teaching certificate (B.ed, PGCE etc) would be a definite advantage.

Please send CV and contact letter to Andrew Hipperson (Vice principal) at the e-mail address given on the job heading page.

(Please don't attach certificate scans or photos at this stage).

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.


The importance of Theory,Methods and Techniques,which represent significant shifts in our predominant ways of thinking, can be daunting. All of these methods and techniques help us enhance the capabilities that characterize learning organizations, aspiration,reflection and conversation,conceptaualization. The same basic connections between theory,method and techniques underlie each of the learning disciplines.I liked the suggestion of using warmers to help the class get ready to learn. The warmers help the students to relax and open their minds. I also liked the suggestions for the first class. It is very important how students view their teacher. I wish it talked more about how to reach beginner classes. this unit is focused on older and more intermediate or advanced classes. The suggestions will still be helpful.
