A Great People

Frequently Asked Questions

No. We never use Bahasa in the classroom, don’t worry if you think that sounds strange, when you do our sponsored TEFL course it will become clear how we do this. Most restaurants have food in English, if not they generally have pictures. Learning some basic survival Bahasa when you arrive, such as addresses for taxis and some food is recommended though just to make things a bit easier. Online apps are always useful to help you get by.

You can apply and start to teach with EF any time. We have limited vacancies all year round.


If you are graduating this year, you can start teaching after you have the certificate. However, the best time to apply is now so you have plenty of time to prepare.

Yes. Previous teaching experience is not necessary, but is valued if you have it. We will give you all the skills you need to help you feel confident standing in a classroom. As long as you have a bachelor’s degree in any subject we can help you with the rest.

It shouldn’t be too difficult to adjust, we have a huge community of over English teachers across Indonesia who help and support each other. The local school staff are very accommodating and helpful. They will give you any local support you need. Along with that we have our academic teams and central office team in Jakarta that you can always reach out to.

Yes, although it does depend on your lifestyle. The salary in IDR is above average for Indonesia so there’s normally some left at the end of the month to save or to pay off student loans. If you share an apartment with other teachers and eat local food you will have more left than if you have your own place and eat western style food every day.

Don’t worry, everybody has questions it’s understandable. The best thing to do is apply so that we have all your details and can make sure you meet the visa requirements. Once we know that, one of our recruiters will contact you for an initial chat before moving to interview. This is the best time to ask those initial questions, others can be asked at interview.
