If I have a degree, do I need TEFL Certification?
YES! Whether or not you have a BA, BSc, B Ed, or other undergraduate degree, more and more overseas schools are now asking for an ESL qualification. You
will see ads asking for TESOL, TEFL, TESL, or CELTA. CELTA is a British
qualification and stands for Certificate in English Language Teaching
to Adults but our TEFL course is for teaching all age levels and thus
is much broader in scope. Since most new teachers start
off teaching in regular schools, it is important that the methologies
they learn are applicable to all ages.
"Dear Dr. Taylor:
Let me thank you again
for an interesting course. It covered a lot of ground but was easy to
understand. I use the methodologies from the course that will help fill
my objectives for a particular class. I feel that I have benefited from
taking this course.
I am looking forward to
receiving my certificate. Most schools here in China are only hiring
teachers who have completed some sort of training course.
I will certainly recommend the Sunbridge course to any colleagues who are interested in improving their professional skills.
