Q3. I have a teaching background in English do I still do this course?

A. It’s important to note that teaching requires expertise and sound proficiency of the language. Apart from the handful of schools catering the Elite class in most of the schools English is a second language. Despite the fact that English is taught as a second language it has created a stumbling block because the proficiency level of the teachers as far as communication skills are concerned has hit rock bottom. A major section of the candidates are left unemployable. The lacuna lies in the way English is taught at school level. It does not cater to the FOUR language skills as the major thrust is given to literature and hence restricted to reading and writing only. The major modes of communication listening and speaking are left ignored. So despite of the fact that the existing teachers have qualification they still feel the need to do the course to heighten their knowledge and teaching skills. TEFL has made such a mark that even some schools do demand to TEFL/ TESOL qualification.
