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 í³ a great place for diving and snorkeling with its vibrant coral reefs, or just to relax and sunbathe on the beaches.

Jakarta itself has a lot to offer as well with all kind of restaurants where you can try cuisine from not just Indonesia but all over the world. The night life offers something for everyone, there are live music, clubs and some themed bars too. There are numerous sporting facilities ranging from fitness clubs to paint ball! As well as local art exhibitions and some local theatre, Jakarta hosts the Java Jazz festival each year.

EF English First is a world renowned language institution using its own teaching books and materials specifically developed for Asian students offering a complete teaching package for the teacher to work from. At the moment we have six schools in the group, they are located in central Jakarta, the outskirts of Jakarta and the neighboring city of Bogor. Each area is unique and has varying features that our teachers enjoy living and working in. From the quieter green suburban environment to the faster pace of convenience in the more urban areas, between the six schools there is an attraction for every professional teacher.

All of the schools are equipped with the latest in teaching aids, materials and educational multi-media technology. For more details regarding our schools, please visit: Contact us (please note that our latest school in Bogor has not yet been added to the site.)

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 showed me the pattern between the present and past tenses. This was helpful for me to see since it will be necessary when trying to explain to students why we use a past simple versus a past continuous sentence. I wish there were more practical teaching methods shown in both the video and in the unit course material. This usually helps me to visualize how I can put the material to use in the classroom.I believe that the content was an excellent review of grammar - to the point and with enough detail to build on. English, and I assume most if not all languages, have patterns or regularities and exceptions. Verbs and nouns (and how they relate) seem the heart of the matter, but the beauty of the language stems from the descriptor words - adjectives, articles, etc., and the linkages among them - conjunctions, etc.
