In Response To: Master's Degree vs. CELTA (Bradwell Jackson)

I think it may depend on what you mean by 'private school'. Do you actually mean a 'private language school'- like a conversation school? Or do you mean something like a private k12 school (like a private senior high school that is the students primary source of education. They learn math, science, PE, their own language, English, art music etc. They go from morning to afternoon from Mon through Fri or Saturday [depending on the normal days off for the region])?

If the latter is the case, then you MAY be able to get the job with a CELTA. You MAY be able to get the job without any training. You will have a MUCH better chance of getting the job if you have an MA (Applied Linguistics or TESOL or SLA) OR a teacher's certificate from your home country (or both) and can speak the local language to at least conversation level.
