Teaching in Eswatini is a rewarding experience and while this is a tiny country with only a handful of international schools, it is worth keeping your eyes open for roles there. In Eswatini you have the opportunity to make a positive impact, not only on the lives of your students but also within the community.
The country is developing, poverty levels are high. Infrastructures may not be what you are accustomed to but if you are a creative, resourceful teacher who wants to make a difference then teaching in Eswatini is the challenge that could change your life.
English is a second language in Eswatini (Mthethwa, 2014). It is one of two official languages alongside siSwati. English is also the official language for teaching and learning, starting from the 4th grade. In addition, a ‘C’ or higher grade in English is a prerequisite for entry into the local university and other institutions of higher learning.
However, the Swaziland General Certificate of Secondary Education (SGCSE) English examination proves challenging to most candidates as they fail to obtain credit passes (Examinations Council of Swaziland, 2017).

    Hello there! I’m John Connell from the U.K, and I’ve got quite a story to share with you. Picture this: I used to navigate the complex world of insurance, crunching numbers and deciphering policies. But deep down, I knew my true calling was in the classroom. So, I took a leap of faith and embarked on a TEFL course, ready to ignite minds and inspire hearts. From the captivating land of Thailand to the enchanting streets of the Czech Republic, I’ve had the privilege of teaching English to eager students from diverse backgrounds. Witnessing their language skills flourish and their confidence soar has been an incredible experience, reinforcing my passion for language education. But my journey didn’t stop there. Destiny had another surprise in store for me. Enter my remarkable wife, who shares my love for teaching and adventure. Together, we embarked on a daring endeavour to create our own English language school. Since then, our school has flourished. We’re dedicated to unlocking your full potential by offering TEFL courses to inspiring future teachers, offering unwavering support, and guiding you through every step of your teaching journey. So, if you’re ready to start an extraordinary path as a TEFL teacher, we invite you to join us.
