Why Get TEFL Certified?

Over recent years English has established itself as a universal language. It’s now the most commonly studied language in the world, being taught and spoken in over 100 countries worldwide, with roughly 20% of the world’s population currently learning English in some capacity – that’s just under 2 billion people! To put it simply English teachers are in demand, and they’re going to be in demand, globally, for the foreseeable future.

There are two ways that you can teach English as a language – face to face or online, and whether you’re looking to teach English face to face overseas, or online from the comfort of your own home, then having a TEFL certification is absolutely essential in order to do so. If you don’t have a TEFL certification then the majority of schools overseas won’t even consider hiring you for an English teaching position. In addition, having a TEFL certificate is a minimum requirement set by all English e-learning companies.
