TEFL or IELTS which is good ? Or both are same ? Shall I take IELTS instead of TEFL? If no please describe why ?
Hi Jessie, the IELTS is a proficiency test, typically for people who want to work or study in an English speaking country. (For example if you are from a non-English speaking country and you want to work in an English speaking one.) The TEFL, which stands for Teaching English as a Foreign Language, is for teachers who want to teach English to non-native speakers. The TEFL is accepted worldwide as a certification that helps you with your teaching, whereas the IELTS is really just to test your proficiency.
We have a partnership with the University of Toronto for an online TEFL course. You can learn more about the TEFL here: https://www.teachaway.com/tefl-certification
For some JOBS it says: Non native English speakers will be required to provide an IELTS Score ranging from 6.0 - 7.5 depending on the subject they are applying for.
BUT DOESNT SAY WHAT IELTS EXAM since there are two: academic and general training. WHICH ONE IS REQUIRED?
You can provide the test score for either if it is not specified in the position listing
Good luck with your applications
Yeah I agree that IELTS is a proficiency test, usually taken by the people who wish to work or study in an English speaking country. I also wanted to get Canadian work visa but it was super difficult until I passed IELTS. I would like to thank the instructors at institute for ielts coaching in mohali who had prepared me for this test.
Is IELTS required the same day of the F-T-F interview or after to confirm and get the job offer ? For English Teachers , which score is required?
Thanks for your time.
