Updated: Oct 27, 2019
Teaching English as a Foreign Language can be a valuable and rewarding career. The job market for English teachers is booming worldwide, but how can you become an ESL (English as a second language) teacher and why should you invest in a TEFL/CELTA certification?
What is TEFL/CELTA?
The abbreviation TEFL stands for Teaching English as a Foreign Language and CELTA stands for Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults. TEFL certifications can be used worldwide for teaching in language schools, conducting private lessons or teaching online. CELTA allows teachers to take it one step further and work in colleges and universities.
Why should I invest in a TEFL/CELTA certificate?
Gain professional skills!
Whether you are a teacher by trade or a software engineer there are new things to learn for everyone. During your TEFL/CELTA course you will develop your time management, public speaking, organizational skills and so much more. Most of us have had the experience of being a student in a classroom, but have you ever tried to step in front of 15+ new faces and teach something new to a group of people that have little to no experience in the subject matter?
Meet interesting people!
During your TEFL/CELTA course you will have the opportunity to meet new people with similar interests. For some, a TEFL/CELTA certification means opening a new door to work and travel around the world. For others, TEFL/CELTA is an added support to their overall teaching career.
Earn 2k to 4k US dollars a month!
Online jobs pay up to 25 US dollars an hour, companies in China offer 2,000 - 4,000 US dollars a month for their teachers, and throughout Europe, many families will pay 20+ Euros/hr for private lessons with their children.
Travel the world while earning money!
If you are looking to move abroad to work, there is a growing demand for teachers in Europe, Asia, Latin America and throughout the world. On the other hand, if you are someone who plans to work from home there are plenty of online companies looking to hire you.
Ongoing Career Support!
Many TEFL/CELTA course providers offer career support after completion of your certification. In fact, in some cases, course providers offer a lifetime of assistance in your TEFL career.
It lasts a lifetime!
Once you have completed your TEFL/CELTA you never need to renew it! Now, if you decide you would like to specialize in other areas of teaching English such as teaching to young learners or conducting Business English classes there are many programs that offer specialization certificates as well.
