In Response To: English First vs CELTA (katy)

You have a couple different options you can think about.
1. Use your money to come and settle in China. Once you have free time and extra savings, you can take the Celta at a later time. The good thing about the EF training is it will provide you with the fundamentals of working in a classroom. The drawback is the training might not be counted towards future jobs, but that's why you can take the Celta at another time once you're established.

2. Take the Celta offered in China or other location prior to working for EF or take another job elsewhere at another time when you have the extra savings. The good thing about the Celta is it's recognized internationally and if you choose to reject the EF job, you should still have plenty of options for positions with other schools/companies.
I'm sure the experienced teachers will chime in and give other feedback and options you can think about.
