For every knowledge-driven individual great value and importance is attached to minute opportunity to learn.

Teaching English as a career requires consistent, persistent, inquisitive instinct of the practitioners in addition to innate individual teaching potentials. One of the ways of developing oneself in this regard is through taking professional courses, attending conferences, seminars and workshop and wide research on the in-things in teaching and learning. An example of these professional courses is TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language). TEFL, TESL or TESOL are all acronyms for Teaching English as A Foreign Language. The terms are interchangeable because it means the same. It is a course designed to expose teachers, or prospective teachers, to the latent skills and idea in the English language teaching and learning profession. It is built to illustrate the paradigm shift of teaching English from the conventional approach to teaching a language to the Communicative Language Teaching Method.
More so, statistical evidence has shown that one of the lucrative jobs in the world today is teaching English, especially for teachers with certifications such as TEFL or TESOL. It metamorphosed from mere obtaining a degree in education to obtaining recognized certification in teaching. Schools, institutions and organizations place high value on communication skills of their employees that is why TEFL in addition to some language proficiency tests such as TOEFL, IELTS, etc., are usually required for teaching opportunities in different countries of the world.
