In Response To: Re: MA TESL in the US (nomad soul)

It depends for what job. Some employers in non-university practical language school roles want to see that you have observed and assessed classroom teaching experience as pat of your training, and many MAs do not include that. Some do, and some go 'part-way' with teaching assistant roles, not actual teaching roles or assessment of performance there. It may be up to you to demonstrate to employers that your qualification is not just knowledge in your head, but also enabled you to effectively use it in a classroom setting as teacher.
