Take control of your teaching
The Language List gives you more flexibility around when and how you teach English as a foreign language (TEFL).
Our 15% listing fee is much lower than traditional agents and language schools. We are also the only learning service that puts you directly in touch with students.
Why join The Language List
A flexible calendar
The freedom to choose your teaching dates is even more important when hosting students in your own home. With The Language List you manage your calendar and are free to choose when you teach.
Earn more from teaching
You decide how much you wish to charge. Our 15% booking fee means you make more money from your homestay teaching. The pricing structure for every tutor is completely transparent.
Get the right students
By writing and updating your own profile you can attract the students you love to teach. And because The Language List connects tutors to students you can customize your teaching to suit their needs.
Share your experience
We encourage tutors to share their experiences with each other on The Language List’s social networks. You can swap advice and arrange meet ups and trips together. It’s a great way for students to widen their network whilst travelling abroad.
