Questions and Answers

What qualifications do I need to teach English abroad with TEFL?

To teach English abroad with TEFL, most employers require a minimum of a bachelor's degree in any field. Additionally, obtaining a certification is highly recommended. The standard requirement for certification is usually a 120-hour course, although some countries or employers may have specific preferences or requirements. It's essential to research the requirements of the country or institution where you plan to teach.

Can I teach English abroad with TEFL if English is not my first language?

Yes, you can still teach English abroad with TEFL certification even if English is not your first language. Many non-native English speakers successfully teach English as a foreign language. However, it's crucial to have a proficient level of English language skills and fluency, as well as the necessary qualifications and certifications.

Do I need teaching experience to get a job teaching English with TEFL?

While prior teaching experience is often preferred by employers, it is not always a strict requirement to get a job teaching English with TEFL. Many entry-level TEFL positions are available for those without prior teaching experience, especially in countries with high demand for English teachers. However, having some teaching experience or relevant skills, such as tutoring, volunteering, or working with students, can enhance your job prospects and confidence in the classroom.

Will I need to speak the local language to teach English abroad with TEFL?

In most cases, speaking the local language is not a requirement for teaching English abroad with TEFL. English immersion classrooms are common, where only English is spoken to create an optimal learning environment for students. However, having some knowledge of the local language can be beneficial for daily living and cultural integration. Additionally, some employers may prefer or require basic proficiency in the local language, depending on the location and type of institution.

How hard is the TEFL exam?

The difficulty of exams depends on what academic level your course is, but with the right preparation and study materials, you can put your best foot forward and pass the assessments with comfort. Make sure to focus on answering assessment questions accurately according to the assignment description and the tips in the question amplification. Practice by writing notes in a study journal about each topic that you cover in your modules to show your understanding of English language teaching methodologies. You will also benefit from completing the interactive activities and reflective tasks throughout your coursework to get a feel for what is expected of you during the actual exam. Remember: there is no one correct way to approach preparing for the exam – just make sure that you are thorough in your preparations!

Does TEFL pay well?

Yes, teaching English as a foreign language can be very rewarding. Depending on your location,qualifications and experience, you could achieve an annual in excess of US$60,000 pa. In some countries your salary would be tax free. In addition to pay, teachers also enjoy various benefits such as comprehensive paid training, stable employment with good hours and weekends off, and opportunities for career growth.

Can you fail a course?

As part of Premier TEFL’s customer pledge, we guarantee that you will pass your course or get your money back. Once certified we focus on helping you successfully prepare for getting hired as a teacher of English as a foreign language. There are many factors that can help you achieve success. One important aspect is making sure that you have a well written resume/C.V. and the skills to write a relevant cover letter. It is important to know what employers are looking for, which is why we hosts job coaching seminars monthly for all students and graduates. Additionally, graduates can apply for jobs both online and abroad on the TEFL jobs board.
