Home / What is TEFL?
The English language is in ever increasing demand throughout the world. Therefore, knowledge of English and the ability to use the language is rapidly becoming a valuable global commodity.
Due to this global desire to communicate in English there is a huge demand for trained and skilled language teachers throughout the world. The standard, international qualification required to become an English language teacher is a TEFL or TESOL certificate. With this qualification you are able to put your English skills to good use and to find employment throughout the world.
ITTT’s TEFL certificate courses provide you with all the necessary skills and training to be an effective teacher and to find a suitable teaching position.
The above question is probably the one we find ourselves answering the most. The use of these acronyms (amongst others) can be rather confusing, especially as they are frequently used interchangeably. Below is a list of definitions which, hopefully, should clarify their meanings:
This term is predominantly used when English is being taught in a country where it isn't the native language (for example teaching English to Spanish people in Spain).
This is where English is being taught to non-native speakers of English in a country where it is the native language (for example teaching emigrants in the UK/USA).
This term theoretically encompasses both of the above.
This term is mainly used by institutions in the U.K.
Whilst there are slight differences in theory, these terms are often used interchangeably. It should not make any real difference to your future career and job prospects whether you receive a TEFL certificate or a TESOL certificate.
