TEFL course advice

    Hi everyone,

    I am a qualified primary school teacher and have been teaching for nearly 5 years and I am looking to teach English abroad sometime this year.

    The number of TEFL courses I have come across is quite overwhelming and I want to make sure I pick the right one. I want to make sure I am prepared and also able to find a job, but I don't want to spend too much money on a course I don't need.

    Has anyone who has done it or in the process of doing it got any advice?

    You are a qualified teacher, you dont need it. International school teachers earn significantly more than language schools teachers.

    Check out the oversea teachers forum for more advice.
     
  3. Hi,

    What dumbbells66 said is correct, but if you do want to teach EFL instead, choose a CELTA or Trinity CertTESOL. They are both accepted everywhere. If you take anything else you may limit which jobs and career paths within EFL you can take.

    Best wishes!
