TEFL Jobs in Sri Lanka: Sri Lanka is a fascinating place to live and work although, despite growing demand, there are still limited opportunities for English teachers. The vast majority of paid positions are in the lively capital city of Colombo. Understandably, teaching resources may be somewhat lacking when compared to more common TEFL destinations in the region. Alongside the handful of opportunities at language centres, there are many opportunities to teach as a volunteer in more rural locations. Experienced teachers are encouraged to get involved in training local teachers. Geography: Sri Lanka (formerly Ceylon) is an island nation south of India in the Indian Ocean. Its diverse landscapes range from rainforest and arid plains to highlands and sandy beaches. It’s famed for its ancient Buddhist ruins, including the 5th-century citadel Sigiriya, with its palace and frescoes. The city of Anuradhapura, Sri Lanka's ancient capital, has many ruins dating back more than 2,000 years. Click Here to search all available teaching locations
