In Response To: ESL/EFL/TESL/TESOL programs (Jay Snyder)

It depends what you mean by 'career'.
There are MA TESOL programmes, but you only really need one of those for the Middle East, university linguistics departments and such like.
Most other jobs including teaching general ESL at universities in Asia, and language schools anywhere, will take you with the qualifications you have and - to show you have some knowledge and experience with the special quirks of ESL, a CELTA or Trinity CertTESOL (or SIT CertTESOL).
Some places in Asia and S. America only care that you have a degree in something (anything) and speak English, but more and more places want some type of TESOL training...and Oxford Seminars are only info sessions and job-hunting advice really. there are other courses, but the three mentioned above are 'known' and considered equivalent and a good basic standard.
There are Diplomas that rank between the Certificates and MAs, but Diplomas and MAs are for people who've tried the field for a couple of years and are committed to a career.
