Why Get ESL Certified

If you are a native English speaker you can become an accredited ESL teacher in a matter of weeks!

Who needs a TEFL (“Teacher of English as a Foreign Language”) certificate (or a TOEFL certificate or, even better, a CELTA certificate)?

  • Non-working partners of K-12 teachers can make themselves and their teaching partner more marketable with a TEFL certificate.
  • Bachelors degree holders who are not certified primary or secondary teachers can teach ESL overseas with a TEFL certificate.
  • Primary and Secondary (K-12) teachers who want to bolster their resume and impress schools with the additional ESL accreditation.

Do I need to know the language my students will be speaking to teach ESL?

No – when students learn from a TEFL instructor, they learn quickly by being fully immersed in English. Your course at i-to-i will teach you how to get your students talking and improving their English in no time at all.
