Date posted:2006-08-07 | Writer: EF English First | Email: [email protected]

 EF English First, a leader in language education with over 200 schools worldwide, is recruiting qualified EFL teachers for positions throughout Russia.

EF English First schools in Russia have large student intakes in September and run an academic year. All teacher contracts run September/October to May.

Candidates interested in working outside of Moscow, can take advantage of a slightly lower cost of living and opportunities for total immersion in Russian life. Please indicate in your application, if you would be interested in working outside of Moscow.

Career-minded TEFL teachers can take advantage of a clear career path rising to Director of Studies and beyond, while receiving excellent professional development.

Candidates must have recognized teaching English as a foreign language certification,   which contains a minimum of 6 hours observed teaching practice (equivalent qualifications like Trinity Cert. TESOL or CELTA are also acceptable).

EFL classroom experience is also desirable, but not essential. In some cases, extensive relevant TEFL experience can be considered in lieu of formal TEFL qualifications.

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 talking about the numerous pieces of equipment that can be used as teaching aids was helpful. I liked how the unit was broken down to highlight how to use each piece of equipment and the benefits and challenges with each one as well. At the same time the unit seemed a bit behind the times as it still mentioned tape cassette recorders and only briefly mentioned the use of smartphones and no mention of apps.This was a very technical Unit which I had some difficulty understanding initially. The lessons they taught here as well as the mistakes that are identified are common to non native English speakers irrespective of how long they have spoken the new language. I happen to know friends who have come to live in America for more years than in their homeland, yet they make similar mistakes to what was shown in this unit.
