What are TEFL and TESOL?
TEFL stands for ‘Teaching English as a Foreign Language,’ and TESOL is ‘Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages.’
Put shortly, they are competing qualifications that offer courses to train individuals in basic teaching skills, which enable you work effectively in the English teaching industry effectively in countries worldwide.
As with any trade, teaching English to foreign learners is a challenge if you have never learnt the methodology or gained practical experience. Acquiring English certification tells language schools that you possess both attributes, and will gain you a distinct advantage of others when searching for your dream job and location.
While not the equivalent of a university based teaching degree, the majority of reputable schools require TEFL or TESOL certification, as well as many immigration departments responsible for work visas.
Depending on your personal circumstances, you may choose from a variety of online courses, classroom based courses, or a combination of the two. Additionally, there are dates and course times available to suit applicants with busy schedules, so there is no reason to delay your dream of teaching English abroad any longer!
All courses are internationally recognised, and there is no requirement for you to speak a foreign language personally. As long as you have the passion and drive, anybody can succeed in obtaining certification and begin an exciting new chapter in their life.
