    Teaching English as a second or foreign language (TEFL) is not for the faint-hearted. On one hand, it is a calling that is certainly full of promise. The adventure, level of fulfillment, and the financial rewards touted by organizations and people who advocate the ESL/TEFL lifestyle are real.

Moreover, the places where native English speakers can help service the demand can be very alluring.
