TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) is the teaching of the English language to people whose first language is not English, more commonly taught to those who come from a country where English is not spoken at all.

The English language can be a powerful tool for opening doors to many learners around the world. But for those who do not speak the English language, a TEFL qualification can help them on their way. Training Qualifications UK is dedicated to helping as many people around the world as possible to learn the wonderful English language for when they want to travel and work in a country which utilises English as either the primary or adopted language. 

Did you know that the English language is the second language to over 600 million people worldwide? This makes it by far the most adopted language across the globe. It also ranks as the second-highest spoken language shared between first and secondary language with nearly a billion people, only Chinese exceeds English.

'Over the last hundred years, English has come to be spoken by more people in more places than ever before. Current estimates suggest that 1.5 billion use it as a first, second or foreign language - one in four of the world's population. And the obvious question is: what will happen to the language, now that it has achieved such a global presence? For, when a language spreads, it inevitably changes.' - David Crystal, Emerging Englishes
