In Response To: Best TEFL cert that is widely recognized (Jordan)

"I am interested in gaining a better understanding of the various ways to obtain a TEFL certification and what people's opinions are about them. I am interested in teaching English in China or South Korea for a year while saving money, then trying to teach somewhere in Europe, like Prague. If I get TEFL certified with an institution that is recognized in China or Korea, will it be acceptable in Europe?
I have heard that getting job with an online TEFL cert will be easier in places like South Korea. Since I plan to move to teach somewhere in Europe, is the online cert. path something that i should stray from? Are there online TEFL courses that are better than others? Any advice on this is welcome as I am lost!!!"

An online cert + experience in Asia is not going to get anyone far in any part of Europe including Prague. Prague in particular is a hotbed of onsite CELTA equivalent training certification courses - almost all newbies on this job market have an on-site cert with supervised teaching practice with real students. Anything less will put you at a significant disadvantage on an already-tough job market.

I suggest you move over to Dave's Job Discussion forum where there are country-specific boards and you can ask exactly what's needed where you want to go.
