Teaching is and has always been a highly respected profession but of late, a career in language teaching especially English has become greatly desirable. The 21st century teaching environment has become intellectually demanding as today's English teachers are facing the learners from diverse backgrounds and as a result they are expected to bring a wide range of skills and expertise to the classroom. With every passing day, teaching English language brings with it a blend of challenges and opportunities. ESL /EFL teachers are joining the profession from a variety of backgrounds to become a part of the global TEFL world and as a result they require thorough training and additional skills to find English teaching jobs abroad.
Earlier a bachelor's degree has always been a strong weapon for fresh graduates about to step into the world of employment. Planning respective careers has become a luxury for those fresh out of college and are instantly hit by the widespread work deficits. This has brought into focus the promising profession of teaching English abroad. Even people stuck in traditional careers are looking for a change of job and looking for newer avenues overseas. Opportunities are in abundance if one opts for teaching young learners and teaching business English. But the teaching aspirants must pursue a TEFL course to make teaching English overseas a good career choice.
Those planning to teach English abroad need to be TEFL certified and must meet certain eligibility criteria as different ESL/EFL jobs have varying demands. Students looking for summer jobs like volunteer teaching or backpackers traveling for a year eager to try their hand at teaching English while travelling may have to face fewer requirements from employers abroad but those planning an international career in teaching English abroad must pursue 120 hours TEFL course for better ESL/EFL job offers abroad. It is not advisable to take the plunge in the world of TEFL without learning the ropes of ESL/EFL teaching.
Well trained and certified TEFL teachers are in demand in various parts of the world although teaching conditions, facilities and salaries may vary from country to country. Middle East offers highest paid ESL jobs along with a host of facilities in countries like UAE, Saudi Arabia and Kuwait. Asia is a lucrative market for ESL/EFL teachers with Asian giants like China, Japan and South Korea offering great package and benefits to the ESL/EFL teachers.
