Many TEFL teachers never take any kind of formal TEFL teacher training course. Demand is so high around the world that it’s possible to find a TEFL teaching job without qualifications. Simply being a native English speaker is enough. However, these jobs are usually low-paid and offer little security and poor working conditions. For this reason alone, it’s worth investing in a TEFL course. And we haven’t mentioned that teaching a foreign language isn’t easy or instinctive! A TEFL course will teach you how to do it, give you confidence and techniques which you can employ from day one when you are teaching your classes, and connect you with a network of fellow TEFL teachers and professionals.
