Teaching English in the Dominican Republic

A TEFL Certificate is the basic qualification to teach English to non-native speakers. Good ones are usually 120hrs and cover teaching methodology, classroom management, lesson preparation and so on.

For more, see TEFL Certificates.

TEFL stands for Teaching English as a Foreign Language. Simply put, this is usually used to talk about teaching English to people who live in a non-English speaking country and who want to learn English for business or to take an exam, etc.

It is pretty much equivalent to TESOL and TESL.

It is the second largest Caribbean country (after Cuba‏‎) with a population of around 10 million people with Spanish being the native language.

Qualifications & Pay

The usual requirements are a degree with a TEFL Certificate such as the ICAL TEFL Certificate. The better jobs also usually ask for experience as well whilst other jobs will take experience over a degree.

Salaries are sometimes paid in both the local currency (the Peso) and USD. A good local salary will be about $500 USD (€396, £318) per month which is enough to live on well. Sometimes an accommodation allowance will be added to this.
