Just because you take a certified class does not mean you will be good at it. Someone had to be good at it to design the class before there was a class, right? It is disrespectful to think that because someone has not take a class that they will not be good at something. thats brainwashing that you need to be taught everything. some people are just naturally good at certain things!

Advising others to take a credible English language teaching cert course that includes supervised teaching practice is brainwashing? Disrespectful? Seriously? That's pushing it, considering teaching practice essentially entails using the knowledge and skills that have been learned and putting them into practice in a real classroom setting, all while under the watchful supervision of a highly-qualified, seasoned teacher. By the way, even those of us who have been teaching for some time still get observed from time-to-time to ensure we're delivering our lessons effectively---that the students receive an optimal learning experience. Anyway, try making your argument against teacher training with employers who require teachers/job applicants hold TEFL certification that included supervised teaching practice.
