In the classroom
Teachers teach 17/18 classes per week, which is seven different groups of a maximum of 14 students, meeting two or three times a week. The classes last an hour and twenty minutes and students are expected to be speaking English for the vast majority of their class time. Although classes are offered from 7:30 in the morning until 9:00 in the evening, teachers are not asked to teach a split shift and the norm is to teach late afternoon/evening classes.

EF English First recognizes the importance of beginning language classes as early as possible since young learners often assimilate some elements of vocabulary and pronunciation almost as easily as they do in their first language. All of our schools have specially designed programs for all age groups with lessons which are fun and provide a solid base in English which can be built upon through the later teen and adult professional years.

The base salary is in Indonesian Rupiah (IDR) and after successfully completing a one year contract the teacher is awarded a one month bonus. The cost of the return flight to the point of origin is also covered by EF.
Housing is shared with two or three other teachers in an EF rented, furnished house. Those who wish to make their own housing arrangements will receive an additional monthly housing allowance. The salary permits a comfortable lifestyle including the cost of vacation travel within Indonesia.
The EF English First approach combines maximum progress with maximum communicative practice. It develops fluency, confidence and accuracy while improving all the essential skills of reading, writing, listening and speaking. The result is successful and effective communication, teaching students how to really use the language in real-life situations. It is important to mention that all of these skills are important and all of these skills are communicative. Oral communication or conversation alone is not sufficient for learners to experience great progress. Listening, reading and writing provide rich sources of language from which students can build up their knowledge and vocabulary.
