Certificate IV in TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) is a reputable qualification for those who wish to teach English as a foreign language.

To teach English as a foreign language in Vietnam or internationally, it is essential to have a TESOL qualification that is accredited by a certified authority. Certificate IV is recognised within the Australian Qualifications Framework so is therefore essentially backed by the Australian Government.

In Vietnam, Certificate IV is regarded as being equivalent to the CELTA qualification and is accepted by all language schools.
