English language is one of the most common languages in the world. With the knowledge of just one language, you can easily communicate with around 375 million people and comfortly travel to at least 50 countries. Impressive, isn’t it?
But those are not the only advantages English brings. In fact, it can open many doors for you all over the world. What kind? TESOL kind of doors.
TESOL is an abbreviation for Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages; it’s a program designed to train you to share your knowledge of English with many other people. And the student becomes the teacher, how amazing is that?
What’s even more amazing is that even if you feel your own English could use some improvement, you can improve it while studying the program. You can get a good degree and progress your English to the next level, all at the same time! And, of course, you’ll secure a future with lots of job opportunities, because there will always be people who want to learn English. Whichever country you choose, whatever city you go to, you’ll always find somebody who is looking for a teacher.
Another bonus is that teaching English is an honorable deed which isn’t as complicated as, for example, figuring out the solution for global warming. As long as you are ready to make an effort, you can do it.
