No Degree?

A university degree is now required in each of the top 20 TESOL destinations. Unfortunately, you cannot get a work permit in another country unless you have completed a 4-year degree.

People ask questions on TESOL forums, where replies are mostly generated by TESOL institutes, hence you won’t get reliable answers. There are a few countries where you can teach English with just a TESOL certificate. Since a degree is required to obtain the work permit, the best way to get an honest answer is to contact the embassy directly.

In Latin America, countries like Ecuador, Nicaragua, Colombia, and Brazil are more flexible when it comes to issuing the work permit.  In Asia, the best options are countries like Cambodia, India, and Indonesia. Again, contact the embassy for more information!

What is Included in a TESOL Course?

The quality of a TESOL certificate course depends a lot in the number of hours and its accreditation. Accrediting organizations have a set of requirements that courses seeking recognition must meet.  In general, courses have to include Grammar, Phonology, and Methodology. While Grammar and Phonology are essential  for people to understand the rules of the English language, Methodology is the key component of a TESOL course because it teaches how to create lesson plans. Furthermore, a good TESOL course will teach you how to create lesson plans using the communicative approach or variations of communicative learning.  Some accrediting bodies, such as TESL Canada, require trainees to complete a 20-hour Practicum module.

Whether online or on-site, the level of training depends a lot on the institute and its accreditation. A 100-hour course that costs only $300 can get you a placement and give you the skills necessary for your first year on the job. More advanced certification is required for career TESOL teachers and Director of Studies that seek well paid positions worldwide. TESL Canada and Trinity CertTESOL are two of the best credentials worldwide.

Choose Quality TEFL Online

TEFL courses are high in demand these days as young university graduates seek to escape the recession in Europe and North America.

South Korea, China, Taiwan, Thailand and Japan are the most popular destination for entry-level teachers because wages are high, the cost of living is low, and the cultural experience is very unique.

A 100-hour TEFL certificate course is the international standard for a TEFL position in these countries, but not every course is the same. There are plenty of TEFL courses created by people like you, who taught English in the late 1990′s upon graduation and created cheap online and seminar TEFL programs.

If you do a quick online search, you will find plenty of complaints about unfulfilled job promises, placement and internship programs that are more expensive than the courses themselves, and poorly written course material.

If the TEFL institute does not have any experience delivering advanced courses such as TESL Canada, Trinity CertTESOL, or CELTA,  its introductory course must offer very little value.

Quality TESOL Courses At An Affordable Price

Online TESOL certificate courses cost a lot less than on-site TESOL courses. Eliminating the need for bricks and mortar saves costs and the economies of scale that online education provides is significant enough to cut $1,000 on the tuition fee of an advanced TESL course. Depending on the TESOL course provider and its accreditation, online education can also improve quality. For example,  you have your own personal tutor that provides customized and direct feedback and the flexibility to complete the course at a slower pace.
