Teach English Abroad
Short and Long-Term Programs in 11 Countries Around the World
Teach English. Build Relationships. Improve Lives.
At ELIC, we go where others cannot go. At this very moment, we have English teachers serving with integrity, passion, and purpose across Asia, the Middle East, and North Africa.
Since 1981, more than 1.3 million students in 15 countries have been impacted by 12,000 ELIC teachers.
Learning English—the business language of the world—provides a tangible advantage to students during their university studies and opens horizons to future careers. It also has a positive ripple effect on their friends, families, and neighbors as these students engage and inspire their communities with the hope of new opportunities.
Types of Programs
ELIC’s summer program is designed to provide you with opportunities to pour into the lives of students from around the world by teaching conversational English.
Never taught before? That’s okay! ELIC provides training and coaching that will ensure you feel comfortable and confident before you ever step foot in the classroom.
Opportunities range anywhere from 4 to 6 weeks and the experience can be utilized to fulfill an internship, practicum requirements, or just provide you with the opportunity to engage with students in a way that creates lifelong impact.
Start with a year and stay until you feel it’s time to leave.
