Can I Get a TEFL Certificate If I Have Years of Teaching Experience?

By | May 24, 2011

A TEFL certificate issued by a school that charges money to credit your teaching experience is not a reputable one.

You may be an experienced teacher but it does not mean that you have been doing the right job. Many people go to another country where hiring standards are low and get a job because they are a native speaker; however, being a native speaker does not make you a professional teacher.

Most teachers who have not taken an internationally recognized TEFL course have little knowledge about preparing lesson plans, so when they do take a TEFL/TESOL course, they must unlearn all the bad habits and struggle more than a fresh teacher.

A reputable TEFL certificate provides training in grammar, phonology, and methodology (Lesson planning). A 100-hour online TEFL Certificate program doesn’t cost more than $300!!
