In today’s globalized world, communication between people from different parts of the world has become a necessity and to bridge the language gap, English has risen as the new global language. Those unable to communicate in English are trying to learn lest they fall behind in this fiercely competitive world. This has led to a huge market of ESL (English as a Second Language) jobs in India and abroad. Many people with sound educational background and fluency in English are signing up for English teacher training courses to tap on this huge job market.
The Online TEFL course is one of the most popular English teacher training courses and covers the basics of teaching English. This course brings a trainee up-to-date with the latest developments in the techniques and skills of teaching. The Online TEFL course trains a teacher to develop the four basic language skills which are speaking, listening reading and writing and developing vocabulary. Planning courses and confidently executing them are also a part of this course. Aspirants as well as experienced teachers can sign up for the Online TEFL course and do it in the peace of their homes without facing any hassles of traveling and upon completion, can easily get an ESL job.
English teacher training courses are also available for those interested in teaching business English. Many companies recruit English teachers to train their employees in business English to enable them to communicate with clients and colleagues world-wide. Teaching business English involves planning lessons suitable for the needs of a particular organization. The lessons have to be interesting, easy and understandable to people coming from different backgrounds and also interactive to ensure maximum participation from a batch. The job of an English trainer is to evaluate and see whether the level of improvement in the employees’ English communication skills match the requirement specified by the organization. During the course of teaching business English, a trainer is also needed to brush up on the employees’ inter-personal skills to ensure smooth running of an organization.
The number and types of ESL jobs are plenty and the requirement for trained English teachers is vast.
