TESOL & TESL is a term that is usually used for teaching English or the certification of an English teacher.
Have you always been really well versed in the English language? Do you know how to spell supercalifragilisticexpialidocious? (Prior to us spelling it out, and without consulting Google). Do you like sharing knowledge, always happy to explain certain subjects friends may not fully understand? If you do, then perhaps you should consider studying the Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) or TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language).

Important Note: If you opt to study a Diploma in TESOL and continue your degree at the same institution, you may get a one-year exemption. This means that you can enter degree year 2 after diploma.
It is not necessary for you to do your postgraduate but doing so would help you advance in your career and open up more job opportunities. You can opt to teach straight after degree as well.
Don’t get us wrong, you’d don’t have to be head over heels in love with her, but do keep in mind that you’ll be teaching people who don’t primarily use English. How will you hope to teach them if you don’t really like what your teaching to begin with?
You’ll be a teacher, how will you ever teach someone else something, if you yourself don’t know anything!
You’ll need to be on top of your game when it comes to communication. You’ll be teaching of various backgrounds and numerous age groups, all of whom will need to be taught differently. On top of that, learning another language is never easy (Try learning German for the first time!), so you have to be good at capturing their imagination and attention, all at once.
