When it comes to choosing a TESOL course the first decision is whether to take an online training course or an in-class training course. Either option will have its pros and cons so it really comes down to the specific needs of each individual trainee.
The biggest difference between the two options is the inclusion of Observed Teaching Practice (OTP) in classroom based courses. During your training you will get many opportunities to practice your teaching skills in a real classroom with genuine English language learners. Each practice lesson is observed by one of the center?s teacher trainers who will provide extensive feedback and advice on how to improve all aspects of your performance.

There are some other classroom management issues that we need to consider and they may include issues such as writing on the board, giving students individual attention, the use of teacher talk time, the way in which we should give instructions to our students, the building and maintaining of rapport with our students, and finally the one that perhaps most new teachers particularly spend a lot of time worrying and thinking about, is the issue of classroom discipline. So what we'd like to do is to take each of these in turn and look at some of the major issues surrounding these classroom management issues.

However, in order to be eligible for most good-quality jobs you will need to have a TESOL certification on your CV/resume.

The simple and straightforward answer to this question is there are many differences between these two acronyms as they stand for very different things. Throughout the world of teaching and learning the English language there are countless acronyms that are used to shorten the names of all manner of tests, certificates, courses etc, in order to make them easier to say, write or understand. TESOL and IELTS are just two of them. Below we take a look at the meanings behind these two acronyms that are well known among English language teachers and students.
TESOL stands for Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages. This acronym is commonly used throughout the teaching profession to refer to the act of teaching the English language to non-native speakers. It is primarily used in... [Read more]
No matter what kind of educational background you have, getting your first taste of the professional world of TESOL is crucial for success as an English teacher abroad or online.
As there is currently no international regulating body for TESOL/TESL/TEFL training programs, international standards for teaching certifications vary from provider to provider. Courses differ in their subject matter and amount of study hours required. Therefore, you need to do your own research in finding the best course providers out there.
To begin, there are two major areas to consider when looking for a TESOL school:
Next, take the study hours into consideration. TESOL course accreditation requires a minimum of 100 hours of study. TESOL training courses that are less than 100 hours will not provide you... [Read more]
As the UK is an English speaking country it does supply a large number of TESOL qualified teachers to work in countries all over the world. However, due to the high cost of living, many of these complete their training through an online TESOL course or at a training center located overseas where the overheads are less and the demand for qualified teachers is particularly high. The truth is that the vast majority of first-time teachers from the UK head abroad to find teaching jobs initially as positions within the UK itself will normally be snapped up by experienced teachers who are returning from teaching overseas.
Due to economic factors there are less in-class TESOL courses available within the UK as there were a few years ago. However, there are still plenty of different options... [Read more]
One way to describe the difference between these two terms is shown below;
The term TEFL refers to teaching English in a country where English is not generally spoken. An example would be teaching English to Thai students in Thailand.
The term TESOL refers to teaching English in any country whether or not English is generally spoken. An example would be teaching Thai students who are learning English in Australia.
Most employers understand that the terms are used interchangeably. Though they may use only one term or the other in general usage, when it comes to describing the qualifications required for a particular job they generally use both.

In years gone by most training courses required attendance at some form of training center. However, since the explosion of the internet and the wide availability of internet connected devices, online training has gradually become more and more popular. These days online courses have largely become the norm in many fields and they have also become widely accepted by employers as a legitimate route towards qualification.
