Thinking of doing a TEFL course? Then it’s good to remember that the benefits stretch far beyond the obvious! Of course the initial purpose of doing a TEFL course is to equip yourself with the capabilities and skills required to teach English as a foreign language and then landing that dream job. Getting to live in another country is also one of the most rewarding elements, but it doesn’t end there, check out these other great advantageous.

Whether you’re planning to teach English for six months or six years, having that additional qualification on your CV makes you stand out from the crowd, not only as a teacher, but for other jobs later in life. Even though some countries don’t require a TEFL certification, having one gives you the confidence to teach. Not only that, you’re much more likely to secure a good position with a respectable salary.

Lots of like minded people do TEFL courses and they’re a great opportunity to meet new and interesting characters and friends. It’s a great opportunity to meet other people who are embarking on the same exciting journey; you can share your anticipation, fears and questions!

You get to learn stuff you never knew before. It’s always good to challenge yourself, and the prospect of doing TEFL might seem like a daunting experience, after all, who really knows their past perfect continuous from their present perfect? But remember, the challenge is half the fun! Once you’ve completed your TEFL course and you’re a connoisseur of English grammar you can go straight to the top of the class.  

Even if you aren’t looking for a career change right now, a TEFL qualification is a great form of personal development. You get to learn loads of communication skills that you can apply to many different jobs, and you get to challenge yourself and expand your critical thinking.

Volunteering is a great thing to do with a TEFL certification. Not everybody does a TEFL as a way to make money, especially initially; some people want to use it to give something back. No matter if you want to stay at home or venture a little further afield, a TEFL course will make you stand out from the crowd.

The opportunities and insights that you get from doing a TEFL are endless, and let’s not forget how much fun the whole experience is. Take your TEFL course and start exploring a world of possibilities.
