5 Common Misconceptions a TEFL teacher keep facing: If you speak English, you can teach : In reality, it is not true.

2. TEFL, TESL and TESOL All are in the same Group: TEFL – Teaching English as a Foreign Language, TESL – Teaching English as a Second Language and TESOL – Teaching English to Speakers of another Language. This is another misconception about TEFL which we generally hear from people. All the three accreditations have a distinctive purpose and stand for dissimilar types of English teaching and training. However, people generally have a tendency to mix all these 3 different areas in together. They mix it up with TEFL, TESOL and ESL by thinking all are the same. www.teflindia.com


3. TEFL Teaching Means Spending Holidays: TEFL teaching is a profession, not a long weekend. In fact, the TEFL teachers or trainers have to work every weekday irrespective of whether they have any lessons on weekdays or not. A lot of people start the International Diploma for teaching because they think that they will teach only a couple of hours and then they can spend the rest of the time by travelling which is just a myth. https://www.teflindia.com/


4. For Native Speakers, TEFL Certificate is Not Required: People think that if you are a native English speaker then you do not need a TEFL certificate. This is a common myth about TEFL program that you may hear from time to time. Many people come out trusting and relying on their nationality but they eventually find that without the right certification and training, teaching is not an easy job to do. www.teflindia.com


5. A TEFL Teacher will teach only English Many people assume that a TEFL trainer or teacher will teach only English language. If you get a job from overseas and if the institute is only for language studies, then the focus will be completely on English as a Foreign Language. However, other schools will ask you to cover other subjects like mathematics, science, or geography and so on in English. www.teflindia.com
