  • While each specialization will provide you with tools that you can use regardless of where you decide to teach, some specializations are better suited to certain areas of the world.
    • If you have prior business experience or are particularly interested in teaching adults in the business sector, Teaching Business English will assist you in accomplishing this goal. This specialization is particularly useful in many Latin American and European countries as well as in China and Japan.
    • Teaching English to Children provides you with a better understanding of how to work with children and provides you with many teaching aids. Teaching monolingual children, though fun, can be a challenge. Since it is common for first time teachers to work with children, especially in Japan, Taiwan, Korea and China, this can better provide you with the necessary skills and confidence to communicate and work with children.
    • Teaching TOEFL Preparation is a great specialization module if you are interested in teaching in Asia, particularly in Korea, China and Japan, especially if you are interested in private tutoring. This specialization is also a great way to refresh your grammar skills.
