Teach English Worldwide strives to provide clear, comprehensive, and objective advice to anyone interested in teaching English overseas.

The man who can make hard things easy is the educator

R.W. Emerson (American poet and essayist)

Because of the extremely difficult conditions in much of sub-Saharan Africa, TEFL-TESOL jobs are rare. Possible positions will most likely require candidates with substantial TEFL-TESOL experience.

If a sense of adventure and/or altruism motivates you, there are English teaching opportunities with a number of aid organizations operating in the region. Two of the largest are:

The Peace Corps (http://www.peacecorps.gov)
Voluntary Service Overseas (http://www.vso.org.uk)
