TEFL certifications can easily be obtained with a month and won’t cost you a lot of money but it opens up so many opportunities. Obtaining a TEFL will greatly improve your odds of finding a job as well as a higher paying salary. But beyond the obvious financial implications what other benefits are there to obtaining a TEFL certification?

If you are a person that enjoys traveling around the world but wants something deeper than the tourist experience then TEFL is a great avenue for doing so.  There’s a huge demand for TEFL teacher overseas so you can easily find jobs in countries that you have always wanted to visit and explore. You get to learn how to adapt to a different a culture and a different routine that helps you grow as an individual. You have a unique opportunity to learn language from the locals in an environment that is far more stimulating than the classroom.

Don’t forget the benefits to your resume; since we live in a global economy a person who has the experience in different countries gives you a unique edge over your competitors. A person who demonstrates the ability to adapt to different cultures and situations appeals to employers. For example if you are engineer that spent a year in China teaching English you would have a unique advantage for an employer looking to send over for a project in China because you would have an understanding of the language and an idea of the situation in China.

If you are interested in completing an on-line TESOL certification, Teaching Nomad recommends using Global English. For China, a 120HR certification is recommended. Enter discount code "TN3" to get 10% off any program!

  • Elsie,SA Placed in Shanghai

    I met Sophia Isis at a time in my life when I needed to make a positive career move. She helped me find a position in which I feel challenged, motivated and where I have the opportunity to develop my skills and knowledge as a teacher.
  • Darlene, USA Placed in Shanghai

    Teaching Nomad considered my qualifications and provided me with several appropriate placement options. I was hired in less than a month! Recruiter, Sophia Isis, made the process easy and was a joy to work with.
  • Andrew, USA Placed in Shanghai

    I didn't know what professionalism was until I started working with Sophia Isis. She has always responded to my questions and comments promptly and in a friendly manner. With Sophia I have truly found my dream contract.
  • Christo, USA Placed in Shanghai

    I can't imagine even thinking of moving to China without the support of the team at Teaching Nomad. If it was not for them, I probably would have been on the next plane back home.
