Date posted:2004-11-19 | Writer: EF English First | Email: [email protected]

EF English First, a leader in language education, is seeking a qualified and experienced EFL teacher for a new school opening in the southern Russian town of Almetievsk. The town itself represents a harmonious blend of Eastern and Western cultures and is well situated to those with hiking/skiing interests.

The position offers a competitive local salary and includes pre-paid flights, health insurance, and excellent career opportunities within EFí³ network of over 200 language schools worldwide.

Candidates must have recognized teaching English as a foreign language certification, like the EF Certificate in TEFL, 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. Candidates should be motivated, enthusiastic and open to new experiences.

Candidates not meeting the above requirements can take the EF Certificate in TEFL, a four-week intensive course, which is available monthly in Johannesburg (South Africa), Sydney (Australia) and in Manchester and Brighton in the UK.

We welcome applications from conscientious, energetic and flexible people, who are happy to work as part of a team.

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.


It is important as English teachers that we know what they correct activities that suit each stage of the lesson. This will help our learners to gain the best skills at learning English. It will also keep the lessons flowing and engaging for them. I learnt some great techniques that I will be able to use when teaching English business students and also a wide variety of activities for students that are young right up to adults.This Unit was very descriptive and informative and encourages students to explore different types of speech while teaching them how to construct sentences with worthwhile and descriptive meanings. Using different methods of speech makes sentences easier to understand while giving them definition . This Unit is an important part of learning the English language and helps put perspective on different sentences and sentence forms.
