Online TEFL certification
Teaching English as a foreign language is not a no brainer. There is a lot you need to know if you want to succeed.
Employers usually determine if you have the right teaching skills without a week of arriving. If you don't, they will replace you.
Most schools claim to provide a one or two days of training. This usually entails watching another teacher's class. This is not enough time to time to learn anything...If the school is pressed for time which they usually are, they will skip the training all together.
Many jobs advertise that beginners are welcome. Employers like to pay teachers the beginner's salary but they don't like beginner teachers. They will expect you to teach like a professional.
Without TEFL training, you will not be able to:
- Engage your students
- Make learning interesting
- Control your classes
- Teach grammar
- Meet your bosses expectations
- And so much more!
Getting a good reference for your first teaching job is crucial. All of your future employers will call your director on the phone for a reference check. If your reference is not good, you will not get hired again and you can say goodbye to your teaching career.
Furthermore, most TEFL courses don't actually prepare you for the job since they are not based on practical teaching techniques. Most TEFL courses are based on theory. For example, they will teach you the history of the English language instead of how to teach.
