In Response To: TKT VS Tesol VS EFL (Leonardo)

If you look here, h t tp : / / w w w . cambridgeenglish.org/ , under the 'teach' circle, you get explanations of what TKT and CELTA, etc are, and who they are designed for.
CELTA is one well-known brand of TEFL/TESOL certificate, and well-regarded as it included assessed teaching practice and a moderated curriculum, etc. Not all other un-branded (or differently-branded) certificates include that. Trinity CertTESOL is comparable.

TKT is usually seen as a little 'less' than CELT and does not usually involve actual training, it is more of a test of knowledge, skills and abilities of existing ESL teachers whose first language is not English. It is less well-known and often used differently by different schools, but worth looking into at least.

It would help if we knew your native langue (Italian?), and where and what level you want to teach next year.
