In Response To: certification (MC)

Where do you want to teach and at what level?
There are job in dozens of countries out there; and as discussed many times before on here they all have a wide variety of different requirements.

But if you are to do a one-month entry-level cert of some type then it is extremely unlikely that you will be able to change the curriculum; most of them are approved by some body or other to cover the necessary things. I don't know of many tefl courses that teach grammar; they train you how to teach grammar to others and how to brush up on it if you don't know what you're about to teach. But there's not time to actually teach the grammar.
