In Response To: MA for Saudi Arabia (Justin)

I am a first year teacher in China and am currently looking for something to advance my career to eventually work in the Middle East. I have spent a few years a while ago in the area and found the atmosphere to be quite fitting. I currently hold a BA in Social Sciences; I originally planned on a career in teaching history. I also have an online TEFL. I will begin a CELTA in Thailand during July. I would like advice on an MA program that offers most classes online, but also has an observed teaching portion. Many of the jobs I find appealing require an MA in TESOL with observed teaching portions, a CELTA, and sometimes a DELTA. This is a long term goal that will take me at least four more years. I would like to continue working while I attend courses online and I am not apprehensive about attending actual courses for short stints, preferably less than two weeks a year. I have only two weeks vacation annually. Any recommendations for or against various schools would be greatly appreciated. I would also consider programs offered internationally in countries that would potentially hire someone with my basic qualifications and experience.

Since your teaching interests appear to be rather broad in terms of location, I suggest you post on the Cafe's general jobs discussion forum (using a more general subject/title line) for more exposure and quicker responses.
