1- Entrepreneurship in Teaching English

If you want to settle abroad, the barriers of opening a language school are very low because rent is relatively cheap. Language schools are in high demand and you can do most of the teaching yourself in the beginning. In fact, a large number of language schools abroad are run by expats who opened the school by themselves or with their spouse.

2- Administrative Career Opportunities in TESOL

TESOL is a $3 billion global industry that requires skilled staff in many departments to support the industry. Plenty of opportunities exist in the Human Resources, Marketing, and Legal fields. As you can see, there is more to Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages than being a teacher. TESOL will open the door to a meaningful and exiting international career!

3-Scholar, Author, Speaker, and Teacher Trainer

A Masters Degree in TESOL is not a requirement for teaching or managerial jobs, but gives teachers a much deeper understanding of the methodology of Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages through research and literature reviews.
