Welcome to the wonderful world of TEFL!

Whatever your reasons for considering teaching English to people who don't speak it, we hope we have useful, pertinent and relatively unbiased information here for you.

Cactus TEFL is an independent advice and admissions service working in conjunction with some of the top names in TEFL and TEFL training.

Please read all about Cactus TEFL here.

With so much often conflicting information on the internet as to what TEFL is and isn't, which qualifications lead to the jobs and which don't, our aim is to help you find a clear route through from what you're doing now, to what you want to do in the future.

If at any time you get tired of looking through the site, please pick up the phone and call us, or send a quick email, and we'll do what we can to help you along.

Our service is completely free, and as impartial as real human beings can be!

The menu on the left should get you started with a few select subjects, if you can't find what you want, please ask!
