In Response To: Re: CELTA + MA - extraneous? (Casey)

Nomadsoul, is it your opinion that it would be better to add on the CELTA even though I've got a few years of experience teaching?

Look at it this way: Just because you've already been teaching for a few years doesn't mean you've been doing it well nor have the tools to adapt to any teaching situation. This is precisely why many employers worldwide want to see a teaching qualification (certificate of training) that included supervised, evaluated teaching practice with real students. That training can come from a CELTA, SIT TESOL, or Trinity CertTESOL course; an equivalent, 120-hour onsite plain-Jane TEFL course; or better yet, a semester-long practicum within your university program. The point is, if you're serious about a career in TEFL and want to be able to compete for the better university-level jobs in any country, then invest in proper ESOL teaching training.
