    One of the best experiences available to language educators is to teach abroad. Getting immersed in a new environment and introduced to different cultures and social frameworks enriches a professional’s personality and significantly broadens his or her worldview. However, the required effort as well as cost to migrate to other countries and find relevant employment can be prohibitive. Getting a TESOL certification from accredited institutions is a springboard for language educators to temporarily or permanently live out their dream jobs in the country of their choice.

    Grammar represents one of the language aspects that are least emphasized in teaching English as a second or foreign language. As is the norm, grammar is superseded by vocabulary building and oral articulation in many ESL/EFL classes, reflecting the stronger focus of educators on the communicative proficiencies of language learners compared with their focus on English’s formal syntactic rules.  In fact, in many classrooms where English is being taught as a foreign or second language, teachers show a slight reluctance in tackling grammar, given its highly technical nature and the difficulty in introducing and reinforcing its rules on non-native English speakers.

    Educators teaching English as a second or foreign language commonly use play- and nature-related words, especially when they are handling young learners. Words such as run, swing, sea, slide, tree, playhouse, grass and sun are among the first English words foreign students learn to use. This is because nature and play are such universal themes that any introductory language course is likely to use such words among its first list of examples.

    The most important aspect of landing an TEFL teaching job is to understand that it is somewhat different from other kinds of teaching jobs. There are more TEFL teaching jobs available around the world than there are teachers who are qualified for them. TEFL teachers teach in regular classrooms, separate classrooms for English Language Learners only, in "pull out" and supplemental programs, and in adult programs. By doing your groundwork, you can get a great job teaching TEFL!

    Anyone who has ever applied for any type of job knows the importance of having a quality teacher resume and cover letter. A resume is the first impression that an employer gets of you. Usually, the employer will decide whether to interview a candidate or not, based solely on a resume and cover letter.  Resumes can be particularly important for individuals applying to teach internationally. If you are applying for a job outside of your home country, your resume may even be the only thing that your employer sees before you meet to sign a contract.

    Do you ever feel like you are stuck in your own little corner of the world? For many people, traveling abroad and seeing the world is a dream. Most people put off achieving that dream because they feel that it will be too expensive, and that they cannot possibly take the necessary time off of work to do what they desire. However, you can achieve this dream and earn money at the same time. You may wonder how this is possible, but the answer is quite simple. Teach English as a Foreign Language or TEFL as it is commonly referred to, abroad. 

    For a TEFL teacher about to start their TEFL teaching career, choosing the right TEFL teacher training course can be daunting. When trying to figure out the accreditation of the TEFL course, the task is overwhelming. Thus, information is needed on more internationally recognized teacher training courses and accreditation/certification agencies for TEFL courses.
