PHEW! Needed to clear that up, now where were we?

 

It is important for you to know that in order to teach online, there are a few basic requirements, some are more important than others:

 

1- Speak Clearly – VERY IMPORTANT 

2-A Teaching English as a Foreign Language Certification ‘TEFL’-  VERY IMPORTANT, you can’t teach online without one.

3- Native Speaker- It helps, but you can still get a job, please see article above.

4- No degree- Also helps, but there are ways around this, see article above.

5- WIFI Connection – VERY IMPORTANT 

6-Laptop and headphones – VERY IMPORTANT

 

What is a TEFL?

It’s an an easy training course that prepares you to teach English as a foreign language,

You can easily get a Let’s TEFL and complete it in the weekends if you work full time.

 

There is a 120-hour online course ran by Let’s TEFL which provides a whole module on online teaching and specific training to prepare you to teach English online.

 

I prefer their TEFL because compared to other TEFL providers, because not only do they train you to teach English as a foreign language, they also prepare you to teach online.

Once you complete the 120-hour TELF certificate, you will have a strong understanding of the online teaching industry and job market, have the skills and knowledge how to motivate your students in class and also, know how to prepare your lesson plans.

As far as i’m aware, Let’s TEFL are the only course available online now which comes with a whole extra video module with specific training for teaching online – presented by an actual teacher.

They are also endorsed by DaDa and iTutorGroup as one of their recommended courses. (Both are two HUGE online schools)
