ICAL TEFL Community


A group of people taking a photo.The ICAL TEFL Community gives a voice to TEFL teachers and other guests wherever you are.

Let’s start with…


If you’d like to start a discussion or ask a question about TEFL then visit the ICAL TEFL Forums. Here you’ll find discussions about absolutely anything to do with English and teaching English. It’s free and easy to join in here.


You can also find here the TEFL News section. This contains up-to-date news affecting TEFL teachers around the world. This isn’t just a section regurgitating press releases from the big publishing houses, it is real news about real English teachers just like us.


Then be sure to take a look at the ICAL TEFL Blog which is more personal and subjective than the resources. Here both ICAL staff as well as guests have written longer, more discursive pieces on different aspects of TEFL.

Note that we also welcome good articles on all aspects of teaching English on our blog and encourage guest bloggers. For more information about this, see here.

TEFL Articles

And of course, don’t forget we have over 1,600 articles on various aspects of TEFL and each week we add further articles written by our staff of experts on the subject. We are also happy to answer your questions so if you have a particular query on TEFL teaching or English grammar, etc, and would like help then get in touch and we will be happy to prepare an article on the subject for you.

Also, of course, we welcome your comments and questions. At the bottom of most content pages you’ll see a Disqus comments section where you can have your say.

Note, use the search box at the top-right of every page to find what you’re looking for!
