At Teach English: ESL, we understand it’s difficult to make the life-changing decision to teach English abroad. We were in your shoes once, poring over heaps of intriguing photos and websites, getting distracted by the plethora of information about teaching English abroad, training and certification, choosing a country and actually moving overseas. It was overwhelming, to say the least.

Where does one even begin?

At Teach English: ESL, we want to create an honest, easy, informative and valuable experience for you. We have experience teaching in both Thailand and China — all levels from preschool to university — and we now have excellent connections with reputable schools around the world, as well as accredited certification courses with job assistance/placement in Thailand, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Czech Republic, Chicago and Online. We specialize in programs with short-term teaching agreements (with the opportunity to stay longer!) and quality, life-changing experiences. Since you’re reading this, you’ve probably already made the decision to pursue your dream of living and teaching English abroad. Let us help you with the rest.


Curious, mindful travel is the best learning experience there is, and the power of imparting knowledge to others while gaining some in return is enough to sanction a lifetime of understanding. At Teach English: ESL, our goal is to bring the world closer together through cross-cultural examinations in the English classroom. We seek open-minded individuals who are curious about the world, and those who don’t travel to see, but those who travel to learn, to ignite wisdom in themselves and those around them. We want to create a globe with blurry lines, one where cultural diversity is respected and valued, one where humans can peacefully coexist in various forms, one where English is a common language. We believe education is the vehicle to take us there.

We provide a range of internationally accredited TEFL certification courses and full-service recruitment with an honest, friendly and experienced staff. We value personal communication —honest, informed, timely — we’re real. We aim to eliminate that overwhelmed feeling from the process and we’ll guide you through it, from choosing a country and a course, to airport pickup and support on arrival. We’re not in this business simply to send teachers abroad; we want you to enjoy the adventure, to leave your mark on this world, and to take something from it when you go.

We did it. We loved it. We know you will too. 



Jessica J. Hill founded Teach English: ESL after her own adventures with teaching English in Thailand and China, and writing about them at MissAdventureTravel.com. After two years in Asia, she returned to the States to earn a M.A. in English to further her passion for both the spoken and the written word. She can’t seem to cure her wanderlust, so she’s probably off exploring a new country (or returning to a beloved one…”Oh, Thailand!”) while she helps you get started on the teach abroad path that changed her life in ways she’s still discovering.
