The questions should be why not, everyone who is a native speaker or just fluent in the language of English and loves to share with other people, this is the perfect opportunity. English is a global language, everyone around the world is connected through this language. Especially, people who are already teaching English in school, they should definitely finish this course, it provides them an invaluable opportunity to explore the world, to learn about new cultures through interacting with their students, to share their knowledge on a global level. There is a big demand for English teachers, there is 7.5 billion people on Earth, only 1.5 billion speaks English, that is 20%. This course opens a lot of doors, especially for non native speakers like me, it is an opportunity to travel the world, meet people, learn about other peoples culture, but it is important to get certified cause otherwise we are doing a disservice to a lot of people that are trying to get jobs and share their love of the language. It is important to have proper training for this job. We have all been in school, thinking it is so easy being a teacher, he or she brings her book and starts reading the lessons, starts writing on the board and give us homework, it is far from the truth. The amount of time that takes preparing the lessons, trying to find a creative way to keep it interesting for students, teaching them vocabulary with different methods etc. is just astonishing. This course gives you the tools (and a lot of other stuff, cause you can save units to remind yourself later) to become a successful teacher and help your students to learn better. You learn about the ESA method (engage, study, activate) which is really important, you learn about classroom management strategies. At the end, it is far more complex than just turning pages in a book. But also, I don’t want this to be just about getting a job and explore the world. You get a big responsibility when you become a teacher, it is not a regular 9-5 job, just waiting to clock off and collect the pay check. Sometimes, you are even more than a teacher, sometimes students have problems and they will feel that their teacher is someone they can trust and share their problems with. You are basically their extending parent in school. And completing this course is just the beginning. It doesn’t bring you a job or makes you automatically a teacher, this is just a good start how to become a good teacher. It explains a lot of stuff in depth, what kind of difficulties you are going to encounter with and how to deal with them. You are going to learn how to deal with students that are reluctant to participate, who are bored, who are making trouble in the classroom. This is just a small part of stuff that the teacher can encounter in their classroom. You become a good teacher with experience that you get throughout the years and this is the first step how to achieve it. I remember when I first started learning English in elementary school and I was so excited, now I want to try to help people find that excitement that I once had when I was first introduced with the English language.
