CELTA/TEFL in Germany

Posted By: Charles <>
Date: Wednesday, 10 April 2013, at 2:02 p.m.

I'm interested in teaching English in Germany, and after doing a decent amount of research still have two questions. First, does it really matter whether I do an intensive (i.e. in-person and not online) TEFL or CELTA certification? Do employers necessarily prefer CELTA over TEFL, or will it make little to no difference which one I choose?

I also was wondering whether I should take the certification in the US or in Germany. I figured that taking it in Germany was a better option, since I would already be in the country once I started applying for jobs, and I'd also be able to get a little exposure to German before applying. However, I wouldn't mind saving the extra money by taking it in the US (and not having to worry about finding accommodation). Any suggestions/reccomendations?
