I am enrolled in the Premier TEFL level 5 180 hr Course in Teaching English as a Foreign Language. My purpose is to keep my brain alive in... my senior years, and to perhaps be of help to the multitude of immigrants the U.S. is presently getting, particularly at our southern border. I believe the U.S. needs these people as much or more than they need us; and the majority of them are Americans themselves, from Southern or Central America; and as such their ancestors have been on these continents far longer than mine - or most U.S. Citizens' have. The Course is excellent; maybe more than I can chew; but I love the compassion and kindness that underlies the training material, as well as its professionalism.read more

Questions and Answers

How can I get a TEFL Certificate?

There are a few ways that you can get a TEFL certificate. One option is to study with an English teacher training institution, such as Premier TEFL, offering government regulated TEFL qualifications. Alternatively, you could take online courses as part of a fully inclusive TEFL internship program. Finally, some budding teachers complete scholarships that include certificates and up to three weeks of teaching practice in Europe for a subsidized fee.

What is a TEFL Certification?

A Teaching English as a Foreign Language Certificate is an internationally recognized certification that proves that you have the skills and knowledge to teach English to students who are not native speakers. There are several online and in-person courses available that will help you achieve this goal, and many universities worldwide also offer TEFL/TESOL degree programs. Upon successfully completing one of these courses, you will be eligible to apply for a teaching job overseas (or online). Because most foreign countries require teachers to have a valid certificate from an accredited institution, having this credential gives you the necessary qualifications when applying for jobs.

How long does it take to get a certificate?

It typically takes anywhere from 3-12 weeks to receive a Teaching English as a Foreign Language Certificate. This will depend on the type of program you choose, the number of classes you take, and your previous teaching experience (if any). Make sure to contact each school specifically in the location and surrounding areas where you would like to work to find out their hiring requirements in order to expedite the job-hunting process.

Is it worth it to get a TEFL Certificate?

There are a variety of benefits that can come with getting a Teaching English as a Foreign Language Certificate. Firstly, it will show employers that you're knowledgeable and experienced in teaching English to speakers of other languages. Additionally, it will give you the ability to work in countries where there is high demand for teachers of EFL. And finally, those who get a TEFL certificate will be able to earn significantly more money than those who attempt to teach English without a formal certification.

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 TEFL 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 TEFL 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.
