Teaching English as a foreign language is NOT a no brainer. There is a lot you need to know if you want to succeed. Do you know grammar? Could you teach it? Do you know how to make efficient lesson plans? Do you know how to make learning interesting? Do you know how to meet your bosses expectations? Could you control your classes? Do you know how to get your students to respect you? I could go on and on. A teaching job without the proper teaching skills is useless. You need the right teaching skills to keep your job.
Most teachers have no experience which is a recipe for disaster. Without the right skills, things won't go well. Your classes will be out of control. You will be standing in front of your students with a red face and shaking knees. Your boss will be annoyed. Your students will lose respect for you and you'll start to feel like a fish in a shark tank. First impressions are very important. Needless to say, teachers without the right training are often flustered and overwhelmed.
Some schools claim to provide training but this usually entails watching a teacher to teach for 2 days. This is not enough time to learn anything. If schools are pressed for time which they usually are, they will skip all the training all together.
Most job advertisements says beginners are acceptable. However, employers have high expectations. They like to hire beginner teachers so they can pay you a beginner's salary but employers will expect you to teach like a pro. Your employer won't tell you what you are doing wrong, they will just keep getting annoyed until they replace you. After all...getting the right training is your responsibility.
Since we know how to meet employers expectations, we teach you how to do your job properly! We give you all the information you are missing. We teach you grammar. How to make awesome lessons. How to get students interested in your lessons. How to control your classes. How to develop rapport with your students. Most importantly we teach you how to meet your employer's expectations! When we are done with you, you will be getting a 5 star review from your employer.
It is crucial to get a good reference from your first employer or you won't get hired again. All employers will call your first reference on the telephone NOT a written reference. They will get to the bottom of whether or not you were a good teacher...or not.
Even being a certified teacher is not enough to prepare you for teaching abroad. Teaching English as a foreign language is a completely unique experience. You won't have acquired these skills from any other experience. You will be teaching a language to students who don't understand you. You need to know how to extensively break down a language AND teach it!
My name is Sarah Fauset and I’m the creator of getTEFL.com. You can see a photo of me at the top the website from when I was teaching English abroad. Everyone always asks if that is really me...yes!!
I have a degree in English and education. I'm a certified teacher. I spent 3 years teaching English abroad. I teach you everything I learned while teaching abroad and how to avoid the mistakes I made.
While placing teachers in teaching jobs abroad for the last 10 years, I gained invaluable feedback from employers on teacher's performance. Employers revealed to me what they liked, what they didn't like and how to meet their expectations. In our TEFL courses, I disclose all this exclusive insider information to you so you hit the ground running.
Most teachers I was placing abroad received endless complaints from employers despite having TEFL certification. I knew I needed to solve this problem if I wanted to continue sending teachers abroad. Part of my job involves guaranteeing teachers will succeed but how could I do this if TEFL companies weren't providing adequate training?
After much research, I discovered most TEFL courses are based on THEORY which leave teachers helpless in the classroom. Most TEFL courses teach lessons on the history of the English language instead of how to teach English. See the problem? For assignments, teachers are forced to write essays on unless topics. How could this help teachers teach?
Finally I realized if I wanted to solve this problem, I would have to create my own TEFL course…a PRACTICAL TEFL course that would actually teach teachers how to teach AND how to meet EMPLOYER's expectations. Shortly after gettefl.com was born.
If you don't know how to meet your employer's expectations, how will you succeed? The answer is you won't.
It seems these days you don't have to look hard to find a TEFL course. Many different companies are now offering TEFL courses. I find there are a lot of generic TEFL companies out there that don't even tell you who they are and what experience they have in the TEFL field. Some universities are even offering TEFL certification too. Some will go as far to offer you a credit if you sign for their TEFL course. However, have you ever learnt any practical hands on skills from a university? Most universities teach THEORY which will make your transition into the classroom VERY difficult. This goes for all other the other generic TEFL companies out there as well. They tend to just teach theory since they don't have any REAL experience. You could get the information they provide out a library!
Believe it or not, a lot of education institutions don't actually give you the practical training you need to succeed at a job. In this industry, the teaching jobs abroad and the TEFL companies are often in different countries with no way to bridge the gap. Until now...
Unless you have flown to the other side of the world and gone into the trenches and done the teaching, you are NOT going be able to properly train other teachers for the job. Also without the insight that I have received for working closely with employers for over a decade, you will not be able to meet employer's expectations. You will just be guessing in the dark until you are replaced by your employer. I'm literally holding the key to the information you need. I just wish I could have got it as easy as you can....ha!
Here are some letters I have received from teachers who have taken our TEFL course. There are too many to post all of them but here are just a few:
“I was a new university graduate and wanted to teach English abroad. However, I didn’t have any teaching experience. I decided to take this course. I was absolutely amazed that the course was able to take me from a complete beginner to a competent teacher. I was able to walk into the classroom with complete confidence. I highly recommend this course!”
Jessica Smith, Canada
“Wow this course is amazing! I learned so many simple to follow teaching techniques that drastically improved my teaching ability. I would definitely recommend this course to anyone thinking about teaching English abroad”
Michael Ford, South Africa
“I was having a hard time getting a job so I decided to get TEFL and I finally got hired. I couldn’t have done it without this course. Many employers these days won’t even look at your resume without TEFL certification”.
Allen Robertson, Australia
“I am an experienced TEFL teacher but I had never had any formal teaching training. I wanted to add a qualification to my resume so I got TEFL certified. Not only do I get paid more now but I have access to more job opportunities because employers take me seriously. I would definitely recommend this course to anyone wanting to teach English abroad!”.
Sam Thomas, UK
“This is the best online TEFL course out there! I couldn’t have done my job without this course. It was a complete life savor. I learned so many easy to follow teaching techniques that helped me in the classroom. This course is practical where as most courses on the market are based on theory.”
Thomas Jefferson, USA
“At first I was a bit worried about the cost of getting TEFL certified but after taking the course, my employer offered to pay me a higher salary because of my qualifications so I made my money back and then some. Also I am getting job offers in more exclusive areas so it was completely worthwhile. This course only teaches hands on techniques that work amazingly well”.
