Do employers recognise online TEFL courses? If you want to know if employers recognise online TEFL courses, don’t jump into the exciting world of TEFL just yet. First, you should get certified in TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language). And not just any Online TEFL certificate but one recognised and accepted by the British Council. This recognition translates into worldwide acceptance from employers, language schools, colleges and universities offering EFL and ESL to their students and professional clients. No need to guess any further; we’re talking about the Online Trinity College CertTESOL certificate.
Teaching IELTS, everything you need to know. What if there was a way to ensure not just a permanently exciting future for yourself but also for your students? With the International English Language Testing System (IELTS), you could help someone live in an English-speaking country, open different horizons for your students, or help people advance in their careers within certain businesses. So, what is it, how can you get involved, and what does it involve?
Hi, my name is Jan, and I was born in Norway 25 years ago. I finished my studies in Anthropology last year. However, I needed some freedom and new experiences before looking for jobs. Maybe some months of backpacking in Asia could be what I needed? Or I could take the train through Mongolia and end up in China? However, in the end, I wound up in wonderful Buenos Aires, Argentina.
Are there any free TEFL courses for the unemployed? The short answer is no. There are some TEFL volunteering opportunities where you go and teach English for an agreed term through an organisation. However, you will not get TEFL certified; you will not be paid for your time but may receive accommodation and food as compensation. Look at your TEFL certificate as an investment. Many organisations are willing to help you; go out and find them. Ask a family member, friend, or even your local benefits office if they can invest in you taking a TEFL course and making yourself more employable.
Do I need to speak another language for TEFL? This is a question we at EBC Trinity College CertTESOL get asked frequently. Do I need to speak my students’ language to teach them English? How can I teach effectively without knowing the language of my students? You don’t need to know the local language to TEFL. Find out why.
