Elephant Rides at the Zoo
Delhi Zoo offers a variety of animals on display in reasonably large enclosures, and boards give adequate information on what you see. During the winter months, the water bodies have quite a lot of migratory birds. This is a bonus. The best time to visit the zoo is during the week. Weekends and holidays are crowded. The Bengal tigers and the lions are a treat to watch. The zoo offers elephant rides to the public.

The Job Market
The EFL-teaching job market in India is limited for several reasons:
• Schools are too poor to hire native English teachers.
• Most jobs are in private schools.
• Jobs are available year round.
How to Find Jobs Teaching English in India
Most of the English teaching jobs in India are volunteer positions. On top of it, with English being an official language in India, there are plenty of Indian citizens more than qualified to teach English. Although not easy, some EFL teachers have managed to find teaching opportunities both volunteer and paid. Below is a list of online English resources that may help EFL teachers find teaching jobs in India.

India supports a relatively weak TESOL market compared to other nations, however, accommodations for English teachers are sometimes included or an allowance may be given towards accommodations. Like in many American and Canadian cities, there are plenty of options for ESL teachers looking for an apartment in India.
Most expats new to India prefer to rent furnished apartments, allowing them the freedom to live without shipping their furniture overseas. Apartments are typically leased for 11 months. When applying to rent an apartment in India, applicants will be asked to make a deposit; the amount varies depending on the cost of rent, the interest the apartment has generated from other renters, and its location.
Apartments in India are very similar to their North American counterparts. Many ESL teachers will notice, however, that most apartments in India do not have a bathtub, featuring instead only a shower stall.
One of the biggest expenses an ESL teacher faces before arriving in India is the cost of airfare. The price of a one-way ticket can vary substantially based on the airline, the season, the city of departure, and how early the flight can be booked. If the length of the flight is of little importance, it is common for flights with multiple layovers to have a slightly discounted price tag attached to them.
During the second half of the 20th Century, the Indian government worked to make noticeable improvements to their healthcare system. Part of this process was to increase the amount of medical schools in India and to upgrade medical services in rural India. Although there has since been significant progress within the Indian healthcare system, it is still nowhere near the level of global leaders such as the United States, France, Canada, and Britain.
Those traveling to India to teach English will want to purchase their own medical insurance that covers any expenses incurred while teaching. All ESL teachers should call their insurance provider to make certain that their insurance policy is valid for a long-term stay in India.
From the flowing Ganges River to the powerfully daunting Himalayas, India is a country of splendid scenery and great geographical diversity. Alongside the country’s staggering topographical range is its cultural diversity–the result of numerous religions and traditions mixing into one melting pot. Underneath this diversity, both geographical and cultural, lies the continuity of Indian civilization and a unique social structure that has thriven since antiquity. International TEFL Training Institute’s TEFL certification program in India offers participants numerous and amazing opportunities to explore this beautiful country while earning an internationally recognized TEFL certificate.
As a historical capital city of India, Delhi contains major Indian tourist attractions such as the Red Fort, Lotus Temple, Qutab Minar, Lodhi Gardens, etc. Delhi contains a diverse assortment of local markets, restaurants, internet cafés, nightclubs, shopping centers and cultural heritage sites to experience. There are numerous chances for TEFL trainees to explore Delhi in their free time and options abound. Taxis/auto rickshaws are affordable transportation options, and tours can be arranged to Agra and Jaipur as well as other rural locations.
