In Response To: CELTA/TEFL in Germany (Charles)

For Germany you will want a CELTA or equivalent on site certification, mainly because that's what most teachers on the job market have. It is tough enough to be a US citizen (am assuming from your post) in a country where EU nationals are preferred without also being under-certified.
Also, you have only 90 days in the Schengen zone (google this if you're not familiar) to get legal paperwork in order. Usually it's best to get certified in the country where you want to start working, but in your case (again assuming you are American and don't have a passport from an EU member country) taking the cert will cost you a few valuable weeks of your 90 day limit. However, if the course providers can give you useful tips on where/how to get a legal job, it might be worth losing the time on your 90 day clock. I'd advise asking a course provider in Germany what they can do for you in terms of connecting you with potential employers as quickly as possible during the course, and decide from there.
