1.) Do I need a degree in English in order to teach English

A: No. You will likely be teaching functional/conversational English and not Shakespeare or Academic English, so a degree in anything is absolutely fine. We can even arrange for you to obtain a degree in a fast-track timetable, along with your TESOL/TEFL certificate. The certificate is your teaching credential and indicates that you are qualified to teach English as a second language since the training focuses on pedagogical technique, ice breakers, and lesson planning.


(2) I have no experience in teaching. Will I have trouble finding a teaching position?

No. Many recruiters seek first time teachers since their thinking is that you haven't made mistakes or are "set in your ways" and thus open to learning and implementing the school philosophy.


(3) What questions am I likely to be asked in an international English teacher interview arranged by the potential employer? Questions are typically the ones listed here and you will be well prepared on the training to answer easily and without effort:

Can you tell me a little about yourself? ...

Why do you want to be a teacher? ...

What's the best way to teach English? ...

What's a challenge you've faced in the classroom? ...

What are some successful teaching methods you use?

Give us a five minute lesson on a topic teaching elementary school children?

What is the most important component in teaching in an international classroom?

How do you "sell" the love of English?

How is your class different from the teaching styles of most teachers?

What do you know about our country seeing as you wish to teach our students?


(4) May I teach online and teach from home?

Yes. The recent changes affecting the delivery of education due to the virus have resulted in a massive increase in online teaching opportunities. Of course as countries re-open, you can also obtain a wonderful package including accommodation and benefits and we teach you what and how to negotiate for the ideal package.


(5) Do you also have job placements?

Yes. We work with international agents and representatives including Embassies to connect you with potential employers. We have also exhibited in various international education fairs with the Government of Canada.


Own Your Own TESOL Training Center

TESOL is one of the most widely recognized certifications in the world. Graduates of our ESL instructor program will not only be able to teach English to speakers of other languages, but their certification will also make them a TESOL business partner and allow them the opportunity to own their own TESOL training center. There are no franchise fees, the certification never needs to be renewed, and you’ll instantly have the opportunity to earn a five-or six-figure income while traveling the world. Graduates of our program will receive first-priority ownership.

More Benefits of Becoming an ESL Instructor:

  • Summers Off: If you use your TESOL certification to work in the education field, you get to enjoy having summers off! This means that you can take advantage of all the fun summer activities without having to worry about losing income.
  • Travel Opportunities: Another great perk of being an ESL instructor is that you often have the opportunity to travel. Many universities will send their instructors abroad to teach English to students in other countries, and you may also get the opportunity to be a chaperone on school-sponsored trips abroad. This is a great way to see the world and get paid to do it!
  • Flexible Hours: If you work as an ESL instructor at a language school, you will often have very flexible hours. This can be great for people who want to maintain a good work/life balance.
  • Work From Home: Many ESL instructors choose to work from home, at least part of the time. This is an exciting prospect for people who want to have more control over their schedule, travel plans, and working environment.
  • Diverse Cultural Experiences: One of the best things about being an ESL instructor is that you get to interact with people from all over the world. You’ll learn about new cultures and gain a better understanding of the world we live in.
