Key Program Details
Whether you're enticed by the historical old town's hidden gems, the bright lights of the Victoria harbour, or even Disneyland on Lantau island! Hong Kong has so much to see and do, you'll fill your spare time.
Hong Kong boasts one of the best transport systems in the world! You can get around in super fast time, and at such a low cost - which is perfect when you consider how many things you'll have to see and do! Lantau island is probably one of the best places to spend your free time. Take a cable car to the island and be swept away by the views! A full 360° breathtaking view of the South China Sea, North Lantau Country Park and Giant Buddha Tian Tan. Disneyland is also on the island, you can buy a season ticket to enter! You won't have time to miss home.
Hong Kong's Christmas displays are also out of this world! Malls and shops go to extraordinary lengths to decorate in the festive style, so much so it's a free activity that'll leave you in awe. Think east meets west, the best dim sum you could imagine, all mixed in with a western feel! You'll never want to leave!
This program consists of 4 weeks TEFL training, which will be a mixture of daytime study and some evening work and assignments. TEFL trainers will make sure you have everything you need to become a confident teacher of English (TEFL) in Argentina.
Once qualified, the world is yours and you can use your TEFL certificate in other countries - there is no expiry date to the TEFL certificate. The TEFL certificate is externally accredited and accepted worldwide.
After gaining skills, making friends in this period is what it is all about. Spending so much time each day around the same people who are in the same situation means friendships solidify quickly. Everyone wants to support each other. It's one of the great benefits of starting your journey teaching abroad in this way.
During the TEFL training period, we give you all the tools, resources and contacts you need to secure a paid teaching job. Most jobs are secured within a few weeks after the course, and sometimes even shorter than that. A great benefit is to have our experienced in-country TEFL team at your disposal recommending good places to work, and where to avoid applying for jobs.
In Hong Kong, most teaching jobs are in language centers, so typically you will be teaching adults, with some younger classes, depending on the employer. It's also common to travel to corporate locations and teach company staff English, as well as have private students to tutor.
Contract lengths are for around 6 months or more. Salaries vary, but are around the equivalent of 800 - 1200 US dollars per month, which is about how much it costs for living costs but there is a chance to save some money if you budget well. For a clearer idea of costs, one of our teachers, Kellane, wrote an Argentina Salary vs. Livings Costs Guide for you.
Whilst essentially anyone can come on this course and teach English in Hong Kong, it’s important to note that there are specific requirements. Non native English speakers wishing to do the course must submit a written essay at the application stage, in order for us to assess their written English skills. If successful at this stage, like all successful applicants you will be invited to an online video interview, at which point your spoken English will also be assessed as part of the interview process.
In terms of the job placement services, through our experience we know those who are native English speaking and who hold a bachelor's degree (any subject) will normally secure jobs within 30 days after the end of the training - and in most cases this is shorter.
Those who are not native English speaking or do not hold a bachelor’s degree can also attend this course (having met the criteria stated above) but must be aware that employers will often be looking for native English speakers primarily, and so we advise them to be as flexible as possible as to salary and location. Native English speaking teachers are preferred in Hong Kong, but many employers will accept non-native English speakers as long as they meet their requirements. Non-native English speakers may have to wait a little longer to get a job in their desired location.
Accommodation costs during training are around 800 USD for 4 weeks. You have the option of living with home stay family or shared apartment for the duration of the course. Our home stay families are carefully vetted, meaning you don't need to worry about who you stay with.
Staying with an Argentinian family is a great way to immerse yourself in Argentine culture – especially if you want to improve your Spanish.
After training and when you are in your teaching job, accommodation is much cheaper, at around 450 USD for a shared apartment. Doing the course with others helps you to make friends and it's common to share accommodation with those friends afterwards when you start your teaching jobs.
Start dates for this TEFL Program are generally every month and places fill up fast. Hong Kong is a popular location for teaching English abroad, so we suggest you apply early in order to get your desired start date.
