Some of the common questions are following which will surely help you to crack an interview.

What type of TEFL certificate the employers from abroad ask for?

English language teaching jobs have been an attraction for many people for various reasons for many years.

The requirement of a TEFL job differs from person to person. Some may want to take a TEFL job for a period of time in a foreign land in order to run his expenses for that time to explore that country but many people apply for TEFL courses to get a decent English language teaching job for a long term career association with that country, therefore the need of a TEFL certification also varies.

Being a non-native English speaker, Can I apply for a TEFL course?

Yes, you certainly can take a TEFL course, being a non-native English speaker. We helped a lot of non-native English speakers with our high standard as well as understandable course structure for many years.

If you have a proficient and in-depth knowledge of English language, you can make a fine English language teacher. Although, it depends on the people on which location they want to teach, as some TEFL trainers want to stay and teach at their homeland whereas some want to travel to a new land to teach English language.

During the time of taking the TEFL course, you will be able to understand you shortcoming, the areas that you need to improve, language proficiency, and will be able to bring improvements on those areas. Your English language proficiency should be as per the level of satisfaction to make conversation flawless inside the classroom during the time of teaching. Some linguistic difficulties can always be overcome over the time with practice and self improvements.

Being a non-native English speaker, does not mean that you are less effective or less desirable, as there are plenty of places where it is not mandatory to be a native English speaker to become an English language teacher. Both native and non-native people trained with a certified TEFL course are eligible for English language teaching, but without a TEFL certification it is really quite difficult to get a job in that same discipline.

What are the qualifications we need to take a TEFL course?

To be eligible for a TEFL course, three most important qualities need to have, and those are enthusiasm, motivation and determination. Another important thing you need is the commitment toward the course and a heart full of desire of learning during the time period; else it may become difficult and boring for you, which is common for any course you applied for. If you have appositive attitude and sincerity then the course will be the most useful learning experience for you to become an excellent TEFL teacher.

May be it is mandatory for some TEFL course providers to ask the applicant for a A-level high school or graduation certificate or some equivalent degree, which may not required at all. A TEFL certification or pre teaching experience value more than the grades appeared in degrees in various levels of studies. A degree or qualification cannot determine the level of your excellence to become an English language teacher.

But, having a degree is always beneficial for a trained TEFL teacher to get relieved form the possible issues at the time of appearing for an interview. Therefore, without a degree, a TEFL trainer needs to be open minded at the time of choosing the location of teaching. For some countries, it is mandatory to have a minimum degree to be applicable for the working visa (for example in China), so, it will not be a good option to work in china as an English language teacher without having any degree. But, there are number of countries that does not mandate for an English language teacher to have a degree, all you need to do is to take a certified TEFL training course to become an eligible English language teacher.

What are the best countries for teaching English Abroad?

Any country where you can suit yourself is the best country for you because someone might have the best of experience in a particular country and to the other that same country can give unsatisfied experience.

We will support and provide all the information regarding you preferable locations in terms of the culture, people, food, salaries and everything but you will be the one to take the final decision. For more information please feel free to contact our TEFL experts.

This is to mention that for some locations, it is mandatory to have some degrees; otherwise, it will be difficult to get a working visa for those locations. Therefore, without a degree, one should be more flexible in choosing the locations of teaching abroad. Though it is mandatory for some of the countries to have a degree to teach English, many countries are also there who gladly accept teachers without any degree provided they have gone through a certified TEFL training.

Sometimes, it is also not possible to take your spouse along with you, unless he/ she is eligible for an employment in that same organization. If you plan to take your kids along with you then you should be informed that the charges of private English schools can be very expensive for some locations. Although, Middle East countries can be a good option for you, if you really want to take the dependents along, as they often offer family benefits to the foreign teachers. Anyone with proper teaching experience can get some advantages for some job opportunities.

If you are really aiming for an above average salary in a foreign land as an English language teacher, then you should be very careful about certain information of that location like the economic standard, leaving expenses, taxation, travelling expenses, leaving conditions and all other information that will help you to calculate and maintain a good balance between your expenditure and saving while working in that country.
