TESOL stands for Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages and it represents one of the most widely recognized qualifications for teaching English to non-native speakers. Obtaining a TESOL certificate can allow you to get teaching positions here, as well as abroad, or even give you the opportunity to start teaching English online. You do not have to have a degree in English or Education, and you don’t even have to have experience in teaching. The training you receive from Central Overseas Education Services will adequately prepare you for a teaching position.

What is the Difference Between TEFL and TESOL?

The main difference between these two types of English teaching courses and certification is where you’re teaching a language and to whom. TEFL tends to be useful in places where English is not the main language spoken, and it is considered a foreign language. TESOL is most often taught to adults who are in a place where English is the dominant language and the students are not native speakers.

Why Should I Get TESOL vs. TEFL?

Both are great certifications to get! One of the best reasons to get a TESOL is if you yourself would prefer to learn less of a foreign language. This can be a great choice if you’d like to teach English in a predominantly-English speaking country, if you’d like to travel to teach only for a short period of time, or many other reasons! TESOL can open up just as many opportunities for travel and work as TEFL, so learn more about them both today.
