So, you’ve settled on teaching abroad. That’s great! It’s the perfect way to travel the world and experience new cultures, while gaining teaching experience and making a difference in the lives of your students.
You’ve seen a TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) certificate listed as a requirement in job postings on online teaching job boards, but you’re still asking yourself the question, “Should I get TEFL certified?” Is it really worth it?
Believe it or not, there’s a big difference between being able to speak English and knowing how to teach it, and teaching abroad is often more difficult than most native English speakers think.
