Do I need a TEFL certificate to teach abroad?
Below you can read feedback from an ITTT graduate regarding one section of their online TEFL certification course. Each of our online courses is broken down into concise units that focus on specific areas of English language teaching. This convenient, highly structured design means that you can quickly get to grips with each section before moving onto the next.
This unit is interesting because, it talks about class size, setting, and building rapport. When I was in high school I never considered my teachers set up their classroom a particular way for a legit purpose. It is important and sometimes difficult for teachers to balance being liked and being the disciplinary. It is important your students look up to you, admire you, and want to come to class. The worst thing you can do is make it so your students do not want to come to class or do not respect you. Once they do not respect you they stop listening to you.
