Jakarta is a bustling Asian metropolis. A city of contrasts, there are all night discos and shining shopping malls yet many of its people still carry on centuries-old traditions from all parts of Indonesia. It is also safer than you may have been led to believe. Many of our teachers have decided to stay because they like living in Jakarta and like working for our school.

Our school is located in suburban Jakarta, about a twenty-minute taxi ride from downtown. Beautiful beaches are only two hours away by car. Teachers have the best of both worlds: a quite place to live and work and an exciting nightlife not far away.


Teachers average between twenty and twenty-five teaching hours per week. Most of our students attend high school or university but we also have children's classes. Applicants with experience or a love for teaching children are urged to apply.

We offer a competitive salary, which allows a comfortable lifestyle. The cost of living in Indonesia is very low. Teachers can easily afford frequent weekend outings and longer vacations to explore all Indonesia has to offer.

To further explore the possibility of working at our schools please contact:

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.


As an introvert, it was especially encouraging to read the reassurance in the introduction to this unit that one needn't be an extrovert in order to be a good teacher. I also liked the discussion of pros and cons of different groupings - whole class, individual work, pairs, and small groups. I feel like I have a better understanding of which grouping systems would be more appropriate for certain activities or phases of the lesson.The unit explains how to teach receptive skills – reading and listening. It explains reasons for reading and listening and how we read and listen. Problems with listening and reading are explained as well. I’ve learnt how to select texts for students and how to plan a reading lesson (patchwork lesson). Also I’ve learnt about basic keys to successful receptive skill lesson. The tasks with good materials helped a lot.
