If this sounds like something you are interested in then you will need a Bachelor’s degree and a TEFL Certification. The TEFL course takes approximately between 40 and 60 hours to complete. It is relatively easy to find TEFL employment in Bali at the moment as the demand for English-Speaking Language teachers is high, and the industry is rapidly expanding. Generally speaking you will be required to sign a contract for a 12 month period and it is rare that you will be able to get a position that offers a shorter contract.
Flights to Indonesia can be quite expensive considering that Bali is not a mainstream destination. However, you can make up for the inflated flight prices because the cost of living in Bali is comfortably low.
Aside from Bali, there are several neighbouring islands that can be reached easily and affordably such as Lombok. Furthermore, Bali offers great water sports experiences (it is famous for it’s surfing), and there are frequent music festivals and fantastic cuisine if you
are interested in getting heavily involved in the culture…
