TESOL, TEFL, CELTA –這些認證有什麼區別?

看來有相當多的學生對他們老師的教學資格及認證感到好奇。身為一位英文老師,同時具有國際英語教學認證、國際教師證、針對成人教學的專業證書和眾多輔考經驗,像是幫助學生準備劍橋大學設立的雅思等英文考試。這次,English4u2請我向各位介紹上述這些英文教學認證縮寫之間的差異。好的,從哪裡開始呢?其實,這並不是一個困難的任務。

關於TESOL認證(從事教授外國人英文為其第二語言之教師執教資格)和TEFL認證(專門於加拿大或美國以外的地區,從事教授外國人英文為其第二語言之教師執教資格證明)這兩者基本上是相同的。唯一真正的區別是,TEFL英語教學認證指的是教“外國”學生;而TESOL英語...教學認證囊括了其他語言的所有學生。所以這兩者差異只跟我在加拿大教學或是在任何其他英語國家教學這部份有關。

比如,我期待在加拿大(我的母國)繼續從事英語教學的工作。那麼,如果我擁有TEFL認證,“技術上”我符合教外國學生英文的資格,因為他們是來自海外的外國人。而我若擁有 TESOL認證,“技術上”我有資格教外國學生及其他母語不是英語的人,例如移民。

CELTA(成人英語教學師資認證)在本質上是以TESOL課程為核心,源於英國劍橋大學,而且是被廣泛公認recognized的(關於“recognized”這個字,哦,看看如果我在英國,那麼我也可以寫成“recognised”,而在加拿大和美國,我就必須寫成“recognized”)這個認證最大的不同在我看來,仍然是非常小的,如果要探究細微的差別,那麼就是英國和北美之間的語言使用和拼寫的差異,另外這個證照還特別注重預備老師教授成人學習者。

以上就是關於這三種英文教學認證的解說,或許各位很好奇TESOL認證的證書是什麼樣子的,所以我附上照片,也希望以上的介紹對您有幫助!


TESOL, TEFL, CELTA – What are the differences?

It seems quite a few students have asked about their teachers’ qualifications and what they mean. As a teacher with an Advanced TESOL certificate, International Teacher’s License and Teaching Adults Specialization Certificate and experience prepping students to pass most Cambridge founded exams such as IELTS I still did not foresee the good “powers that be” at English4u2 asking me to clarify the differences between the above mentioned acronyms. Ok. Where to begin? Actually, this is not a very difficult task.

TESOL (Teaching English to Students of Other Languages) and TEFL (Teaching English to Foreign Learners) are basically the same. The only real difference is that TEFL refers to teaching “foreign” students whereas TESOL encompasses all students of “other” languages. This is relevant only when I am in Canada or any other English speaking country.

Situation : I am in Canada (my home country) and look to continue my career as an English teacher. With TEFL certification I am “technically” only qualified to teach students who come from overseas to study English as they are “foreign” students. With TESOL certification I am “technically” qualified to teach “foreign” students and any other learner whose native language is other than English, for example – immigrants.

CELTA (Certificate of English Language Teaching to Adults) is in essence a TESOL course. It stems from the University of Cambridge of England and is thusly widely recognized (Oh, but see if I were in England then I could also type “recognised” with an S whereas in Canada and the U.S. I can only type “recognized” with a Z) and herein lay the biggest difference which, in my opinion, is still very slight. It’s from England and therefore the slight differences between English and North American language usage tendencies and spelling exist. It also specifically focuses on preparing teachers to teach adult learners.

Well, I hope that helps. I have included a picture of a TESOL certificate in case you have ever wondered what one looks like.
