A TEFL teaching certification is recommended and would definitely be an asset for teaching any level. International schools are located in urban centers such as Kathmandu, or provide a distance education option, and teach with an internationally accredited curriculum. Due to the small number of international schools in Nepal, most teachers come to Nepal to volunteer or teach English.
