Questions to ask at your TEFL job interview

If you have just been certified to teach TEFL course or are thinking about going through the process, you will want to start thinking about your interview with potential employers. You will be expected to show them what you have learned in your course and why you would make a great teacher at their school or language institute. You may even be asked to present a short sample class. When preparing for an interview, some people forget that they should ask the language school or institute some questions as well. You are traveling to a foreign country after all and you should know some things about the company you are traveling thousands and thousands of miles to work for. You don’t want to end up teaching in a school that you don’t like and start wishing you were home.

Before, during and after your interview with your potential employer, there are some things you will want to know about them. Before your interview with the company, see what you can find out about the company by searching the internet. Most schools will have a website that you can look at. See if you can find any forums about the school or reviews from people who have either taught or taken classes there.

If the school seems reputable, get ready to ask them some questions during your interview. The interviewer will first ask you the questions to see if you are a good fit for their school. After they interview you, it is your turn to see if they are a good fit for you. If the person interviewing you hasn’t already told you about their school, ask some basic questions. What kind of students do they have? Kindergartners? College age students? Also, what is the average class size? This is an important one to ask because in some countries, you could be teaching as many as 60 students at one time, if so is there a teachers assistant? In other jobs, you might only be teaching 3-6 students at a time. Make sure you are comfortable in handling whatever size of classes they may want you to teach. You will need to know if they have a curriculum that they follow and is there access to lesson plans from the past.

You should also ask about other types of resources that are available to the teachers. A good school will value their teachers and provide things like Wi-Fi access, copy machines, interactive whiteboards and other tools to make your teaching job easier and more efficient. Asking the right questions during your interview will help you determine if you will have a good experience teaching at a particular school. You should ask about the types of resources that are available to the English teachers. A good school will value their teachers and provide things like Wi-Fi access, lesson plans or curriculum work books to follow and elaborate on, copy machines, interactive whiteboards and other tools to make your teaching job easier and more efficient. After all, TEFL is not all about earning a living, it should also be fun and enjoyable.

Of course ask about visa, work permit and accommodation assistance, photos of accommodation beforehand to let you know what to expect.
