In Response To: CELTA vs TEFL overwhelmed (Rebecca)

Hi - I, too, hold a teaching certificate, am an experienced elementary teacher,, and planning to teach overseas. The primary difference between the CELTA and the TEFL is that only the CELTA course includes a practical teaching component. In spite of having a credential and experience, I'm in the process of applying to get my CELTA in L.A. because my elementary has NOT been teaching English as a foreign language, per se, plus I want current training. I got my credential many years ago and know that the CELTA training will make me current. I caution you about getting a TEL certificate because it doesn't include a practical teaching component and, although you have experience with high school students, they are not adults. I believe that holding a teaching credential and the CELTA will make me extremely marketable so that I'll be able to go anywhere. I hope this helps.
