Due to the continuous growth of the use of the English language worldwide, now more than ever the staggering demand for teachers is clearly apparent. This generation of people of all cultures, nationality and ages are starting to see the benefits of learning English to further their professional careers and social experiences in life, especially those from back rounds with less opportunities or from less developed countries seeking to better themselves. This is due in part to a generational shift in attitude towards western cultures,as well as the rise in improved international relations and visas giving people easier access to countries they might have never thought of visiting before. From this desire and sometimes obligation to learn, comes great demand for adequate teachers to help them along their way, teachers that have gained the necessary skills to effectively teach rather than just travelers dropping in on towns or cities and basically winging it and not committing to a long term plan of education. This leads to an unstable learning environment where students struggle to get any real rhythm in classes riddled with uncertainty. With a TEFL course, potential teachers or even existing teachers have already committed money and time before the course so are therefore obligated to complete it. The rewards are bountiful for the student and the teacher. The student gets a curriculum of a much higher standard delivered to them in a more professional manner without subsidising the fun element which is very much necessary in any learning environment. This higher standard should lead to more potential for the student, whether it be a child gaining another skill that can be furthered elsewhere, a young adult with ambitions of travel or working abroad or anyone needing improved English skills for their existing occupation. For the teacher a TEFL course unlocks many doors for their careers, dreams and ambitions as well as saving them from embarrassment when they eventually get a job in this field of work. Without the correct training , heading in to a classroom or any other teaching scenario could be a daunting task, they most likely would not know how to deal with the daily challenges that come with teaching. For example: Managing the class, troubleshooting, keeping morale high, keeping the lessons interesting, using the right tools at the right time are all essential. The course helps the teacher to understand everything before they go out and teach, instead of going in blind. In addition, an internationally recognised tefl qualification is a massive helper if someone would like to see the world and encounter and learn from different cultures, taking them out of their comfort zone. These experiences are far more rewarding for anyone willing to take the plunge. The teacher could also benefit financially from a TEFL course, employers are more likely to employ a potential candidate if they have a recognised qualification to their name, they could even demand a higher salary for their services. In conclusion, a TEFL course is petty much essential for anyone wanting to further or begin their career in the teacjing world...... The question should not be WHY take a TEFL course, but rather WHY NOT?
