Thankfully, you don’t need a lot of money, materials or experience to be ready for a TEFL Internship. Other than completing an online course and becoming TEFL certified, you need to lay some groundwork in order to successfully partake in a TEFL internship abroad.
Travel With An Open Mind
It’s important to have an open mind before doing a TEFL Internship. If you have the right mindset, expect to gain valuable life lessons and have unique cultural experiences after you jet off to your chosen destination. An open mind also translates to a better teaching approach and excellent levels of communication with your eager students.

Know Your Motivation
Having the right motivation goes hand in hand with an open mind. If you are looking for one-of-a-kind, personal experiences then you will thoroughly enjoy your TEFL internship abroad.
Being driven by the ability to live comfortably and travel the world will stand to you, and if you’re looking to improve your CV, develop better interpersonal skills and foster your ability to work and adapt to new environments then you are guaranteed to succeed.
Discover Your Motivation
If you seek a new challenge a TEFL internship could be just what you’re looking for. Often TEFL teachers are people who feel like they have plateaued in their career, or are young people looking to broaden their horizons before they enter the permanent workforce.
You can turn your TEFL internship into a permanent job if that’s something you would like, but if you want to challenge your independence, resourcefulness, and adaptability, an internship abroad is perfect.
