TESOL Diploma

How’s it going everybody? I’ve been thinking whether a background of ESL over a TESOL diploma is enough. Is there a significant difference between the two? Some schools can offer ESL certificates. Isn’t it enough to advance in the field of teaching? I want your opinions. Thank you.

TESOL, if I’m not mistaken is

TESOL, if I'm not mistaken is an official certificate for teaching ESL. ESL certificates can be generic and unrecognized. I'm pretty sure for an institution to be authorized to grant TESOL certificates, their programs have to be accredited. The schools that offer just general ESL certificates probably just give you a lesson in teaching English their way and give you a piece of paper for your trouble. I would definitely go with the TESOL.
