Date posted:2002-03-27 | Writer: EF English First Menteng | Email: [email protected]

EF English First Menteng is a well-established language school located in the heart of Indonesia's capital city--Jakarta. We are seeking native speakers who are qualified EFL teachers to join our staff on a one-year renewable contract.

We require candidates to have a TEFL Certificate (RSA CELTA, Trinity or equivalent) or suitable experience and background. A love of teaching, enthusiasm and a good sense of humor are essential.

The School:
We offer a wide range of courses, including General English, Business English, Children's courses, TOEFL Preparation, Conversation, In-House Corporate Training and one-to-one tutoring.

Our school is fully-equipped with computer lab, video equipment and constantly updated supplementary material. Of course, our greatest resource is our supportive, dedicated teaching staff.

Being located in the central business district of Jakarta has its advantages (other than a consistent supply of business students!). We are also near Western-style shopping centers, restaurants serving cuisine from around the world, cinemas showing the latest movies in English with subtitles and cafes and pubs.

Jakarta offers all the conveniences of a large city while providing an excellent jumping-off point for travel to the tropical paradise that surrounds it.

We offer a competitive salary and benefits package, including round-trip airfare, housing, 22 days paid holiday, overtime compensation, work permit/visa, and medical insurance. The salary is more than enough to live well and travel during holidays in Indonesia.

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.


Course books and supplementary materials have become staples in many classrooms. They can provide a good basic overview of what the teacher is aiming to pass on to the students; however, one must carefully consider the book that will be used, and how often to rely on its content because it could become predictable and may not always fit the students' needs. In cases like these, it's best to customize the lesson using your own materials.In this unit we learned the productive skills: speaking and writing. We learned various ways of encouraging the students to speak and write. I liked the suggestions of playing games, everyone likes to play games and it´s a great way to learn how to write and to invite students to speak more. I personally like Jeopardy, even thou I think it´s for very advanced students, but most of the games suggested can be adaptable to any level.
