This study hypothesizes that the qualification of an ELT practitioner considerably impacts the learning outcome of learners in learning or mastering the English language. Supporting the stated hypothesis, this short communication, an excerpt of my earlier findings (Jha, 2014), aims at presenting a compact overview of six most sought-after ELT qualifications for the prospective ELT practitioners. Employing document analysis as a means of data collection, the study delved into exploring the implications of six ELT qualifications at face value only. The findings revealed six popular postgraduate ELT qualifications that are in great demand in ELT industry. They are Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL), Teaching English as a Second Language (TESL), Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL), Teaching English as an Additional Language (TEAL), English Language Teaching (ELT), and Applied Linguistics and TESOL (ALTESOL).
