TIPS FOR CHOOSING THE BEST TEFL PROGRAM HENRY HARVIN EDUCATION

Office Theme:

WHAT IS TEFL? TEFL STANDS FOR TEACHING ENGLISH AS A FOREIGN LANGUAGE. A TEFL TEACHER WITH A BACHELOR’S DEGREE GETS APPOINTED IN NON-ENGLISH SPEAKING COUNTRIES. A TEFL TEACHER IS APPOINTED TO TEACH CHILDREN IN KINDERGARTEN, PRIMARY SCHOOLS, OR EVEN AS A PRIVATE TUTOR IN SOME COUNTRIES.

Office Theme:

GENER ALLY, NATIVE ENGLISH SPEAKERS FROM THE USA, UK, AND AUSTRALIA ARE HIRED AS ENGLISH TEACHERS. NON-NATIVE SPEAKERS GET HIRED, TOO, IF THEY HAVE AN EXCELLENT PROFICIENCY IN ENGLISH COMMUNICATION AND GRAMMAR.  A BACHELOR’S DEGREE. TEFL CERTIFICATION . A FLAIR FOR TEACHING. ELIGIBILITY TO BECOME A TEFL TEACHER

Office Theme:

IS TEFL CERTIFICATION LEGIT? Many people think TEFL as a scam because of the considerable price difference in the course. T he disparity in the fees is because it’s onsite versus online mainly. It is indisputable that online courses are cheaper compared to onsite classes. For onsite courses, companies have to invest in infrastructure like land, classrooms, etc. and provide print outs of study materials, whereas, for online classes, such expenses are nil.

Office Theme:

IS IT A TEFL COURSE FOR YOU? BEF ORE FINDING THE BEST TEFL PROGRAMS , YOU SHOULD ASK YOURSELF, “IS THIS COURSE REALLY FOR YOU?” MOVING TO A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT COUNTRY MAY BE A NERVE-WRACKING EXPERIENCE INITIALLY BECAUSE OF THE UNCERTAINTIES. YOU HAVE TO PREPARE YOURSELF FOR A COMPLETE CHANGE IN LIFESTYLE MENTALLY.

Office Theme:

IT TAKES MORE THAN JUST A BACHELOR’S DEGREE AND A TEFL CERTIFICATION. YOU SHOULD HAVE A KNACK TOWARDS TEACHING. Y OU SHOULD HAVE A LOT OF PATIENCE AND LEARN TO GO WITH THE FLOW AS STARTING A NEW CAREER IN A FOREIGN COUNTRY IS NOT AN EASY TASK. OBTAINING THE BEST TEFL CERTIFICATION HAS MANY ADVANTAGES LIKE TRAVELING ABROAD, OPENING UP A NEW CAREER, GETTING EXPOSED TO MODERN CULTURE, ETC., IT HAS ITS DRAWBACKS TOO.

Office Theme:

DRAWBACKS You should be ready to face the culture shock in the new country. The language barrier becomes a challenge when you go to non-English speaking countries. Job contracts are usually short term. So you should be ready to backpack and frequently travel to many countries. Going to rural areas can make you withdrawn and homesick, especially if you are a city lover.

HELPFUL TIPS

Office Theme:

1. CREDIBILITY OF INSTITUTION MAKE SURE THE INSTITUTION IS ACCREDITED AND IS LICENSED. MAKE SURE THE GOVERNMENT OR ANY OTHER REPUTED INSTITUTIONS RECOGNIZES THIS. CROSS-CHECK HOW LONG THE CERTIFICATION PROVIDER HAS BEEN THERE IN THIS INDUSTRY. GO THROUGH REVIEWS WRITTEN BY PREVIOUS STUDENTS BEFORE YOU GET SCAMMED.

Office Theme:

IN THE CONTEXT OF ONLINE LEARNING PROGRAMS, YOU NEED TO BE EXTRA VIGILANT ABOUT THE REPUTATION AND TRANSPARENCY OF AN INSTITUTION BECAUSE PEOPLE WHO GO FOR ONLINE CERTIFICATION COURSES ARE MORE LIKELY TO GET SCAMMED THAN THE OTHERS WHO OPT FOR CLASSROOM LEARNING.

Office Theme:

2. COUR SE FEE MANY BEST TEFL CLASSES CAN BE FOUND ALL OVER THE WORLD, THE COURSE FEE DEPENDS UPON THE COUNTRY WHERE YOU LIVE. ACCORDING TO TEACH ENGLISH ABROAD, “ANYTHING THAT’S UNDER $200 IS SUSPICIOUS.” EVEN IF YOU SELECT ONE OF THE BEST TEFL PROGRAMS, THERE IS A CHANCE THAT THERE CAN BE HIDDEN COSTS.

Office Theme:

3. JOB PLACEMENT ASSISTANCE CHOOSE AN INTERNATIONALLY RECOGNIZED BEST TEFL CERTIFICATION THAT OFFER YOU PERSONALIZED JOB ASSISTANCE. THEY SHOULD HELP YOU FIND OUT WHICH TEFL DESTINATION INTERESTS YOU AND PROVIDE YOU ADVICE. THEY SHOULD PROVIDE YOU WITH JOB-FOCUSED ARTICLES. THEY SHOULD HAVE PROFESSIONAL JOB ADVISORS TO PREPARE YOU FOR THE INTERVIEW PROCESS.

Office Theme:

4. TEACHER’S CREDENTIALS MAKE SURE THE INSTRUCTORS ARE HIGHLY QUALIFIED PROFESSIONALS WITH AT LEAST A MASTER’S DEGREE. DON’T HESITATE TO ASK AS MANY QUESTIONS AS POSSIBLE ABOUT THEIR LEADERSHIP QUALITY, PROFESSIONAL KNOWLEDGE, AND THEIR YEARS OF EXPERIENCE. MAKE SURE THEY WILL BE ABLE TO CREATE A LEARNING ENVIRONMENT WITHIN THE CLASSROOM AND BUILD A STRONG RELATIONSHIP WITH THE STUDENTS.

Office Theme:

5. DURATION OF THE COURSE The length of the training programs plays a significant role when you choose the best TEFL courses. The standard duration of a TEFL course is usually 100 to 120 hours. If you are an online student, it depends on you. If you are a full-time online student, you can just finish it in a month.

Office Theme:

6. HANDS-ON TEACHING EXPERIENCE Find an excellent accredited TEFL institute that will help you to develop the teaching skills by providing you hands-on in-classroom teaching experience. I t is not always possible to learn teaching skills just by attending theory classes. This will be the one advantage you will get while selecting an onsite course compared to that of an online course.
