Details of Position

Lorosa’e English Language Institute (LELI), Timor-Leste’s leading language organisation is looking to recruit experienced CELTA qualified EFL teachers to work at our training centre in Dili, and off-site in national institutions and international non-government organisations.
LELI was established in 2002, and having developed an excellent reputation, is now recognised as the premium English language training organisation in Asia’s newest country, Timor-Leste. Our clients include a variety of government ministries and respected national institutions, prestigious international organizations, local businesses, and private individuals.
Students at LELI come from a variety of backgrounds, and many have had their education disrupted due to Timor-Leste’s years of struggling for independence. The standard of education and the methodology most students have been exposed to in Timor-Leste means that some students have difficulty with modes of abstract thinking. In conjunction with building students English language proficiency, EFL teachers at LELI also help to develop students’ analytical and critical thinking through a range of different teaching strategies.

The country is going through positive change and the successful candidate would be helping to make a genuine difference in the development of a nation that is rich in culture and history.
