My TEFL Experience

My name is Aurela and I am twenty-four years old. I took the TEFL course as I thought of it as a great course that would help me develop professionally. Before taking this course I had been teaching English for two years already.

Teaching is an excellent job and it has given me a real chance to discover the world of teaching. Becoming a teacher gets many individuals into the mindset of learning more, sharing ideas and wanting to find new ways of doing things creatively.

Now I am teaching students of the ages of six to fifteen at a private school in Albania. When I first started teaching in Albania, I had classes of young learners (some as young as five years old).

The students at school are very motivated to learn and respect their teachers a lot. Albania is very hospitable country and everyone values teachers and the awesome job they do. It wasn’t that difficult for me to get comfortable since I am Albanian and I know how everything works here: the teaching system, culture and people in general.

A TEFL course covers the ins and outs of ESL teaching, including lesson planning, classroom management and how to teach English language skills like reading, writing, speaking, listening, pronunciation and grammar. It also has equipped me with essential skills for the foreign language classroom, like how to identify different learning styles and adapt lessons to suit different student needs.

Taking a TEFL course was an excellent way to familiarize myself with planning and delivering lessons, managing a classroom and student behavior, identifying different learning styles and much more. This has given me the tools needed to interact effectively with students, control a class, meet learning objectives, foster productivity and create a safe and fun learning environment.

 

Having a TEFL certificate means that you will be more prepared to take on a classroom of students. You’ll have plenty of tools and tricks up your sleeves to help you deliver lessons or lectures with success.

As far as the course format is concerned I loved it. I was able to complete modules on the weekends and evenings while I still worked full-time and saved up. The classroom management module helped me prepare to be a confident teacher. 

I have great plans for the future as far as my professional life is concerned and without doubt the TEFL certificate is one of the best decisions i have ever made and for sure many other benefits will follow in the near future thanks to this course. For the moment I will just focus on my current teaching position and my lovely students.

Don’t forget that a TEFL course is an investment in your future, which will help you land a well-paying teaching job. Not only can you earn a lot, but also save money, while enjoying living abroad or in your own country.

Sounds pretty awesome, right? I can honestly tell you from personal experience: it really is!
