If you're planning to teach English as a foreign language abroad then getting TEFL certified is the first thing you must focus on. There are numerous benefits of a TEFL certification course and cracking the job of an English teacher in the flourishing job markets will be easier. Aspirants and professional teachers can opt for this program who want to teach English abroad or online in non-English speaking countries.
A TEFL certification program is available in 3 modes: Online/Distance and in-class sessions.
The online/distance mode is having multiple variants of TEFL programs and Live online class is a prime feature of this online mode. For the Live online class, the candidates must have a minimum of 10+2 qualifications, a good internet connection, and should have good knowledge of technology. Besides, their command of the language must be strong.
The major benefit of Live online classes is that there is a direct interaction between teachers and students while the latter do not have to travel to other cities to attend classes. Along with that, students will be provided with a recording of the classes for further reference. Attending a live online TEFL program saves a lot of time and it is cost-effective as well.
These classes will be mostly on the basis of webinars and those will be conducted by skilled and certified trainers with experience in TESL/TEFL teaching and training from all around the world. These webinars are best suited for people who are passionate about teaching English in the global market. Once the certification is done, candidates receive globally acknowledged certificates that will highlight their resumes to a great extent.
Online classes, on the other hand, will provide all the benefits to students but the only hindrance is that students will not be having an interaction with teachers during the session. Candidates must have excellent proficiency in both written and spoken English. Countries like Malaysia, China, Singapore, Cambodia, etc., provide a huge job market for ESL teachers.
