I'm already a teacher. Do I still need to take a TEFL course?

The short answer is yes.

As you will be teaching those who speak English as a second language, their comprehension of English may be quite low. Due to this you will find that the skills involved are quite different and your students’ learning needs are TEFL-specific.
However, it is worth noting that the type of TEFL course you’ll need to do as a qualified teacher will vary from someone with no practical teaching experience. For example to teach in a South Korean public school you would usually need a TEFL certificate with some practical classroom experience, however you may be able to sidestep the classroom part if you are already a qualified teacher.
