In Response To: Is TEFL online course good enough for Saudi? (desertsafari)

I am a fresh graduate in B.Commerce, and I am wondering if I can take this online TEFL/TESOL online course offered on groupon for $80 from Global Language Training. Anyone heard of them? (website is uk based, globaltefl)

P.S. - I know that its always good to go with in-class teaching practice with real students, and I am planning to do that in June, which is the earliest offering of CELTA at British Council in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Thought this might be a good start to get some background...

A fresh, unrelated BA + online TEFL cert + 0 teaching experience will not get you a teaching contract in Saudi Arabia---not even an entry-level position. In fact, if you look at numerous TEFL job ads for the Gulf, as a whole, you'll see that having a CELTA still won't be enough to boost your chances for a teaching position in the region.

Your best opportunities for work will likely be Asia. Take a look at the Asia jobs discussion forums on this site for possible jobs for those with minimal qualifications.
