Apostille Certification and your TEFL or TESOL

Lately, there has been a huge call out for Teaching English as Foreign Language (TEFL) professionals from companies all over the Internet. People in many countries see value in having their citizens be able to converse with English speaking people in their own tongue. This increases opportunities for people in foreign cultures who wish to interact with English speaking people in business, educational and even socially related activities. However, where many potential TEFL teachers become stalled is in their lack of knowledge about Apostille certification for TEFL. For example, many do not know that since July 1st 2017 all teachers need to get have certain documents related to their qualification to teach authenticated at a Chinese embassy or consulate in order to teach in China which probably has the largest demand for TEFL professionals.

  • TEFL – Teaching English as a Foreign Language
  • TESOL – Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages
