Certification and Teacher Training for ESL,EFL,TESOL (Distance Learning,Online)

With teaching English becoming more and more important in the world economy, teacher-training courses have popped up everywhere. Some, however, recognize that one cannot always sit down and attend classes to receive a certification in teaching English. Thus, there are online and distance-learning TEFL and TESL courses appearing every day. Some of these actually do give a reasonable quality of training, or at least, as good as teacher training can be without having the student actually teach. However, you do need to understand that distance learning diplomas and certificates, as well as those gained from online courses, are often viewed with prejudice by employers. Many employers feel that online courses aren't quite "real" in the sense that they do not offer as extensive an education or as practical a training program as do "sit-down" courses. Nevertheless, you may find that an online certification is better than none at all. Research the courses before giving them your hard-earned money. Search online for complaints, ask for references, and peruse English teaching forums to see if an online course is legitimate or not. You're always taking a bit of a risk with online education, but it can be a tremendous opportunity for those who cannot afford to take time out to sit through "live" courses.

Note: Make sure any online program is accredited!
