In Response To: TEFL Online (Will B)

I'm positive there has been extensive debate over this subject here before, but I was curious on overall experiences people have actually had with online TEFL certifications teaching in China.

Unfortunately I do not live near any CELTA or CELTA equivalent programs making the online certification more realistic for me.

If this is a good idea (let's hope)? Are there programs anyone would recommend and an overall total hour recommendation as well?

No recommendation for any online TEFL cert course from me; they lack a supervised practice teaching component and limit where you can teach. Stick with the CELTA. There are four CELTA providers in China, so you could definitely do the course in country. But if you're gung-ho on an online TEFL cert, then I suggest you head over to the ESL Cafe's China jobs discussion forum to post your questions about others' experiences with online certs.
