Hello Mr. Bendary.  Thank you for the question.  Firstly let me say that if you have the time and money to commit, I would suggest a CELTA or a TrinityTESOL.  I say this because they are recognized around the world as the best TEFL/TESOL teacher training programs.  Additionally, there are some areas (such as Saudi Arabia) that make a CELTA a prerequisite. If you are going to do a TEFL, then doing it face-to-face is a better op....

Hello Melissa and welcome to the world of TEFL teaching. I have received this question many times over my 15 years of teaching abroad. My number one piece of advice: “If it sounds too good to be true, it problem is.”My second piece of advice: “NEVER send money for the promise of employment.” I have actually put together some resources to (1) give you advice and identify scams, (2) share any scams you encounter, and (3) adv....

Most schools in China and Thailand have native English speaker as a requirement but will consider non-native given their need and the individuals English ability.  The degree issue stems from requirements for a visa/work permit so sometimes schools can't get around this.  That being said, you are more likely to find a position in rural schools that have more need for a teacher.  Additionally, some rural schools are given a waiver f....

Hello Marjorie.  Firstly, congradulations on the new teaching adventure.  For mananing young learners, I would suggest you look at Class Dojo.  It is a great app that allows the teacher to award points to students for good behavior and effort.  Additionally, students can create cute monster icons for their account and the parents can even access...all this can be done right from your phone.

Given your PGCE and teaching experience, I believe you would have no problem getting a job teaching abroad.  Most schools ask for a TEFL as part of the employment requirement but that also has to do with getting a work permit/visa for teaching.  Many of these countries will accept a teaching qualification such as a PGCE in lieu of this.....

Thank you for the quesiton.  The short and simple answer to that question is, unfortunately, no.  Employers will not hire a teacher without a degree (condition of employment) and it is needed for the visa.  For Saud Visa information, this is a useful bit of information from U.S. State Dept. http://photos.state.gov/libraries/saudi-arabia/768382/yoderja/guide.pdf ....

For teaching abroad, either will suffice and it is usually best to see what the schools in your country of choice are asking for.  Regardless, the difference is: TEFL Courses:  Teaching English as a Foreign Language Course which focuses on training for teaching students that live in a country where English is not the native language. TESOL Courses:  Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages which encompasses both teaching stu....

Hello.  There are two types of visas you can get when going to Thailand...keep in mind these are for USA, UK, Canada and Australia. First, there is a visa on arrival which you receive at the airport upon arrival.  These are usually good for 30 days. Second, there is a tourist visa which you can obtain at a Thailand Embassy or Consulate in your home country.  These are the best because it gives you more time to find a job and conver....
