Invariably, there is an increase in employment opportunities with openings for TESOL teachers within the country’s numerous islands including Bali.

Things to do in Bali, Indonesia while taking a CertTESOL

Bali is located in the Indian Ocean at the western part of Lesser Sunda Islands between Java and Lombok. The city is a 95 mile wide Island and the most famous attraction of Indonesia with its calm beaches, interesting temples, famous rice paddies and mouth-watering cuisines. As a TEFL trainee in Bali, you can choose from a wide range of activities from surfing and diving to tasting the best traditional dishes.

Visit the Tegalalang Rice terraces, a local valley situated north of Ubud. A morning stroll across the paddies gives an extraordinary calm and refreshing feeling with sunshine streaming into the gorgeous green fields. While there are thousands of temples in the city, the most popular ones to visit include the Elephant Cave and the Pura Besakih “Mother Temple” for its hugeness. The Sekumpul waterfall is also great place to visit within the city.

Apart from the beautiful rice paddies and temples, another attribute of Bali that shouldn’t be missed is the food. Bali is a typical food heaven with a diverse range of traditional and contemporary cuisines to choose from. Local Balinese food is usually made of fresh vegetables, meat and spices. Popular among the locals is the tender roast duck called Bebek Betutu. The dish is served in palm leaves and best enjoyed with steamed rice.

To get the best of your CertTESOl experience in Bali, we recommend you obtain the Social and Cultural Visa. This will give you opportunity to stay in Indonesia for up to 60 days with enough time to explore and visit different places before the course and even more time to settle in if you choose to teach in Bali afterwards.

Apply for your CertTESOL in Bali, relish in its intriguing tradition and enjoy easy access to the Asia Pacific Island while you earn the skills, knowledge and confidence to teach English anywhere in the world.
