TEFL is an amazing opportunity to go out and see the world in a different way compared to visiting as a tourist, but we know that some might want to teach in a place that they would love to holiday in as well. Here are some of the best places to be a TEFL teacher whilst enjoying the climate of a holiday.
Average Summer Temp. (Max/Min): 31°C/21°C Coastline: 4,964 km
Spain is a country that is world-renowned as a tourist hotspot, not just because of a rich culture and history, but for the miles of beaches and the thousands of resorts along the coast (particularly the Costa del Sol and Costa Brava).
TEFL is a growing industry in Spain as many students look to learn English to boost their chances of getting a job as many Spanish companies strengthen trade links with the UK and US. It’s a great time to go to Spain to be an EFL teacher.
If sunny Spain is the TEFL location of your dreams, have a look at our TEFL Jobs in Spain or if you haven’t chosen a course yet, browse our course options to find the best TEFL Wales course for you.
Average Summer Temp. (Max/Min): 34°C/25°C Coastline: 9,330 km
Mexico is one of the fastest growing tourist destinations for UK tourists, with places like the Riviera Maya, Cancun and Acapulco attracting thousands per year because of the unspoilt beaches and sweltering sun.
Mexico’s economy is expected to triple in the next twenty years, and this will increase the need for EFL teachers to train the next generation of Mexicans to trade with companies in the UK, US and Canada. You could be one of the thousands needed to teach them.

The Dominican Republic is a very tourist focussed country, with one out of every seven jobs being in the tourist sector. With stunning resorts such as Punta Cana and Bayahibe, with sparkling white beaches and turquoise seas, it’s little wonder that thousands visit every year.
With large economic growth, as well as the growth in the tourism industry, there is a greater need than ever for English amongst the Dominican population. There’s never been a better time to go to the Dominican Republic and teach English.

Average Summer Temp. (Max/Min): 30°C/18°C Coastline: 7,600 km
Italy is a beautiful country only a few hours from the UK. Places like Venice and Rome are famous all over the world as cultural marvels, worthy of a visit on their own, but couple that with long hot summers then you have a place worth staying in for longer. Being an EFL teacher in Italy would let you experience these at your leisure.
English is an important second language in Italy and still requires more teachers to teach students English. Italy is a great opportunity to be an EFL teacher in an interesting country not too far from the UK.
If Italy interests you as a TEFL destination, pick one of our TEFL jobs in Italy and begin your TEFL career.
Average Summer Temp. (Max/Min): 34°C/25°C Coastline: 3,219 km
Thailand is an exotic paradise in South-East Asia. You can visit dense rainforests and the urban jungle of Bangkok, but you can also visit the fantastic Indian Ocean coast, home to some of the best holiday resorts in the world. Almost a million Brits fly to Thailand every year, visiting the beaches of Phuket, Ko Samui and Phang Nga.
Thailand is a country with a booming TEFL industry as well. The growing tourist numbers mean that more English speakers are needed in that industry as well as more people needing to be taught business English.
