In Response To: CELTA vs TEFL overwhelmed (Rebecca)

I think most responders to your post will tell you Europe is a very competitive TEFL teaching market to crack because of the immense amount of very qualified English teachers there with EU credentials (Irish and British expats). To legally teach in Europe, most successful teachers have EU credentials.

They are all fluent English speakers legally able to teach in Europe whereas you may not be because of your nationality, of course no fault of yours.

Concentrate on perhaps teaching in S. E. Asia after obtaining your CELTA and your chances of successful teaching employment there will be much better.

At the very least you will be competing on a level playing field with other foreign teachers.
