Requirements For Teaching English Abroad

Teaching is one of the noblest professions a person can undertake. Teachers are respected all over the world as they are the imparters of knowledge. Have you ever thought about teaching and that too abroad? There are various jobs you can find abroad related to different fields like science, humanities, arts, commerce, etc. Most of these teaching jobs are related to teaching English as a Second Language to students who have come from those parts of the world where English is not predominantly spoken. If you are interested in teaching English, then there are certain requirements you have to fulfill before applying for the job.

  • Proper Qualification And Degree- A bachelor’s or master’s degree in English is very important for any English teaching job, whether in India or abroad.
  • Proficiency In The Language- Just having a degree in English does not make you eligible to teach abroad. You have to make sure that you are proficient and fluent in speaking and writing English. Unless you know the entire A-B-C of the language, you will not qualify to teach abroad. Schools and colleges in countries abroad are looking for people who can speak, write and teach English. There is no point in applying if your English is as good as a 6 year old.
  • Interest Factor- It is a common notion that you can perform some task efficiently only if your interest lies in it. So, if you are not interested in teaching English, then you might as well not apply for it. There is no point in teaching English if you will do it half-heartedly and damage the chances of foreign students who are willing to learn but are forced to listen to your droning lecture.
  • Certificates- It is essential to obtain the proper certificates, which are required for teaching abroad. The two most important certificates would be the ESL and TEFL certificate. Do a thorough research as to where you can obtain these certificates and the procedure related to it.

One of the most important decisions you have to take before actually applying for teaching abroad is whether you are willing to shift to a foreign country. Shifting to another country is a big step and you should take your decision wisely.
