TEFL or TESOL trains the teachers to teach students who are non-native English speakers. A certified TEFL/TESOL teacher will be able to teach immigrants, students studying in a foreign country where English is the second language, or people who have to converse in English for work purposes. TEFL/TESOL grants exposure on how to teach grammar skills, language systems and lesson planning. The course is best suited for educators who wish to teach abroad.
TEFL/TESOL is different from just teaching the English language because it is geared towards training the educators on teaching methodologies and how to teach students of various levels. TEFL/TESOL also enables the educators to teach students of all age groups.

Teaching Practice (TP) is extremely helpful for candidates who have not had any experience with teaching before. Even though TP is optional, the candidates are advised to seek out opportunities in their vicinities or preferred area where they can practice teaching their target students.
