In Response To: Re: Need Advice (Tim)

Note: I work for a Trinity Cert TESOL provider, Oxford TEFL (our ad is at the bottom of this page).

Hi Tyler
My advice basically boils down to "you get what you pay for". Sure, you can get a job without a teaching qualification, but it'll be harder to find, you won't be paid well, and the conditions will be poor. And don't forget, a TEFL course isn't just a piece of paper; it's going to give you the skills you need to do the job. Don't fall into the trap of thinking that just because you speak English, you can teach it without a bit of training!
For the maximum flexibility, and the best chances of securing a good job, go for one of the internationally recognised "accredited" qualifications: the Trinity Cert TESOL or the CELTA.
Online courses are great for getting a taste of what it's like, but nothing beats real classroom practice.
