Online Teaching Companies Require TEFL Certificates
TEFL stands for teaching English as a foreign language and it’s extremely helpful at making you a more effective foreign language teacher. You can get your TEFL certificate online with ease or you can do a program abroad where you will also get job placement.
Getting a TEFL certificate will fundamentally make you a better teacher. It will also help you qualify for better online teaching jobs as well as help you start with a higher base pay as this is becoming an ever more important ESL requirement.
You have a lot of options. Most online teachers simply need a TEFL to meet the employment requirements. For this, we suggest you use Groupon and get a massive discount on a TEFL course provided by Full Circle TEFL:
If you’re wanting a TEFL certificate that is accredited by a governing body we suggest the following online course by Bridge.edu.
TEFL programs based outside the United Kingdom should be ACCET certified. ACCET was founded in 1974 and is recognized by the United States department of Education as a “reliable authority” in the area of teaching English as a foreign language.
Your last option is best for those looking to go on a bit of an adventure teaching English abroad. If that is you, we love International TEFL. While they do have online programs their selling point is that they are a company based out of Chicago that is made up of former ESL teachers who now provide in person TEFL programs around the world with job placement included.
If you’ve been wanting to teach English abroad, do an in person class abroad with job placement and go on a bit of an adventure check out with International TEFL Academy.
