TESOL is the Teaching of English to Speakers of Other Languages. It is sometimes called TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language). Courses can be very basic and aimed at beginners, such as this one. However, there is an extensive professional development infrastructure which allows students to go all the way from Certificate to Diploma to Master's Degree and even Doctorate. This course should be seen as the first rung on that ladder. Anyone interested in learning how to teach English should start here. It is a "taster" programme which will enable you to decide if teaching English is a potential career choice for you.
