The Most Important Benefits Of Obtaining a TEFL Certificate
I’ve been traveling basically all my life, and that makes me a person that always will want to travel and will always want to be in different situations, cultures and of course countries.

I finally decided to learn how to teach English in not English speaking countries. Why? Because, the need is huge, many countries are developing very fast because English is an amazing language that everybody should at least know the basics and I think that magic happens when people can communicate with others through a common language.
I think that the main reason to teach English in a foreign country is exactly the urge to travel and make money at the same time. I’m pretty sure many teachers can relate to that. Which also means committing to the school and your students. The TEFL course it so important to achieve, if this is your direction and aim in life. It teaches and explains to you in such a good and simple way not only the English grammar but most of it, teaches you all the other unseen aspects of the teaching. I found it very enlightening so many times. It helps you to open your eyes, about all the gaps that the teacher can find in between students of different religions, countries, etc. The role of the teacher is so important, especially because of those gaps in between cultures, most of it for instance when you have a mixed class. Many of these aspects I must say, I took for granted, and while I was studying the TEFL course, I understood the real meaning and the real importance of all of these points and not only, I found solutions. I understood that your classes are more likely the mirror of your teaching behavior.

So, as I said, I decided to complete a TEFL course, because I like to work and travel, and for earning the right amount of your salary is better to have a valid certification such as this one. The teacher will look more professional, more ready to be the next professor for different ages, from children to adults. In a few words, it’s a reliable test to make, if this is the career you want to make. I will mention that is also very important the fact that it is usually a course online, that you can study according to your schedule, no rush and from anywhere you are! Which means to me a lot of freedom.
