Taking a TEFL course is an exciting prospect, and opens the doors to a rewarding English language teaching career, as well as other opportunities within the language teaching and learning industry. It also brings the chance of living and working in most countries across the world, and equips you with a set of transferable skills that are beneficial in any role or job.
Deciding to taking a TEFL course is not only an investment in your future but also, for many, the start of a new adventure. Depending on your current situation, some TEFL courses may be more suitable for you than others. The CELTA and Trinity CertTESOL courses have a basic set of entry requirements to ensure you have a good chance of completing the course, whilst there are other courses which are more flexible with their entry terms, such as a CELTA online or online TEFL course.
