Getting started in EFL teacher training can be daunting when it comes to choosing the right course. One of the first questions prospective English teachers who want to teach English as a foreign language ask is, “how to get a TEFL certification?”. There are many options out there including; teaching English as a foreign language certification online, a TEFL weekend course, a TESOL master course,TEFL Asia or a Global TESOL course.
