    After TEFL how one can teach any students without knowing their language. For example how can I teach English to a Chinese guy if I don’t know anything about Chinese and he also doesn’t know much English.

    This is a good question, and it’s exactly what a TEFL course will teach you how to do! You’ll learn how to introduce language in different ways that don’t require you to speak the native language of your learners.

    Hope that helps!
