In any case, having a TEFL certificate on your C.V. will make the difference between you and another native English speaker, and can increase your chances of working at a better school and/or receiving a higher salary.

This certificate prepares you for a teaching job in any country you choose. Popular teaching destinations include Japan, Vietnam, Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, South Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Singapore, China, the European countries, South America and much more!
