TEFL stands for Teaching English as a Foreign Language.

TEFL certification is what you earn after completing a training course meant to teach you how to teach English to speakers of other languages. An internationally accredited and recognized TEFL certification course should do the following:

  • Teach you everything you need to know to successfully teach English as a foreign language
  • Offer at least 120 hours of training
  • Include a hands-on teaching practicum
  • Give you an intensive grammar review (something native speakers often forget the rules of!)
  • Teach you how to teach speaking, reading, writing and listening in a variety of ways, and for all learner levels
  • Prepare you to manage a classroom, given cultural and language barriers, plus typical student behavior
  • Teach you how to create and implement your own lesson plans
  • Boost your confidence in front of a class (you’ll get lots of practice in a variety of ways)

Many people use their TEFL certification to teach and travel around the world, from Thailand to Costa Rica and everywhere in between.

If you don’t plan to make it a career, your training and experience will still open doors for you back home.

Teaching experience will show that you’re a great communicator, a team player, a patient, understanding person, a quick learner and you have the ability to manage a group of humans.

Your travel experience will demonstrate that you’re adaptable, curious about culture and diversity, openminded, well-rounded, super interesting and a great storyteller.

We’ve never met an employer who didn’t respect and admire all of the above.
