Your TEFL Certificate is an important document that can help you find a job teaching English as a foreign language. It demonstrates to potential employers that you have received training and reached the required standard to become a teacher of English as a foreign language.

If you have been browsing the internet looking for courses, you might have noticed that there are different certifications. These include:

  • TEFL
  • CELTA
  • TESOL

TEFL and TESOL are certificates awarded to students who have studied to teach English as a foreign language to adults and children. CELTA is a certificate in English language teaching to adults only.

Why Study for a TEFL Certificate?

If you want to teach English as a foreign language there are a few things that you should bear in mind:

  • You should know how to teach
  • You should have an awareness of what teaching a classroom of students is all about
  • You should understand what you’re teaching
  • You should be able to plan and execute your English classes

If you don’t study for a TEFL course, then there will be things you don’t know. and you won’t get the all important TEFL Certificate.  Yes, you might have an excellent grasp of the English language, but do you know what to do with a mixed ability class or how to teach effectively for 50 minutes or more?

You’ll learn how to teach reading, writing, listening and talking. You’ll be given grammar lessons and tips on teaching grammar points. If you take the combined course, you’ll also get to know what it’s like to stand up in front of a class of students and do some teaching.

By studying with The TEFL Academy you’ll be taught what you need to know to begin your career teaching English as a foreign language. There are things you will learn as you become more experienced, but the certification course will give you a solid framework.

That means when you do start your first job, although it will be nerve-wracking, you know you’ve got some solid training behind you. So now you know the reasons why you should study for a TEFL Certificate.
