The ABCs of TEFL
TEFL is the most common acronym used to refer to teaching English abroad. A “TEFL certification” refers to the training courses and certificate that are required by language schools and institutes around the world seeking to hire English teachers. Also known as Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL), English Language Teaching (ELT), and teaching ESL (English as a Second Language), the field of TEFL/TESOL represents one of the fastest growing professional fields in the world that presents thousands of excellent opportunities for teaching English abroad in all corners of the globe. The need for English teachers abroad is vastly expanding – you will never be without a job opportunity!

Even if you do not need a degree to teach in certain destinations, you need to be a trained professional to run an effective classroom. There are many schools and governments around the world that require English teachers to have this credential for employment, even if you are an experienced teacher with a degree in education. There are so many TEFL options out there that it can seem extremely overwhelming to choose a trustworthy or right one. Many courses and programs are not accredited, and you may end up wasting your hard-earned cash on a qualification that may not get you very far.

Imagine walking into an accounting firm and it’s your first day of work. You don’t have any specific training in the accounting field but hey, you’ve been managing your finances & budget your entire life, how hard could this be? Your clients are not going to be overly excited to hire you when they realize they’re paying a “professional” without an ounce of training and zero credentials outside of day-to-day math that everyone already knows.
Think of teaching English the same way.
Your students are paying money to attend your class. They expect to learn from a professional, not someone off the street who just happens to speak English.
